Puzz-3D is the brand name of three-dimensional jigsaw puzzles, manufactured by Wrebbit, Inc. Unlike traditional puzzles which are composed of series of flat pieces with parts of an image on them, when put together, create a single unified image, the Puzz-3D series of puzzles are composed on plastic foam, with the part of an image graphed on a stiff paper facade glued to the underlying foam piece and cut to match the piece's dimensions. When the pieces are put together, they create a structure such as a building.
Typically, the structures released tend to be famous landmarks, like the White house, Big Ben, CN Tower, or the Neuschwanstein castle. In addition to this, Puzz-3D has also released science fiction related puzzles, such as the Millennium Falcon of Star Wars fame, or structures from legends, such as King Arthur's Castle. There has also been the creation of period buildings, such as a Victorian Mansion. In addition to these structures, they have also produced Classic cars, such as the 1956 Ford Thunderbird.
Perhaps one of the most famous puzzles is the New York, New York puzzle, which included the area around the World Trade Center and the Empire State Building. This puzzle is Wrebbit's largest, at 3141 pieces.
A current series is Towers Made to Scale. It currently consists of 13 skyscrapers from around the world, including the Petronas Towers, the Sears Tower, and the Empire State Building, all at a 1:585 scale. All of these towers glow in the dark.
Another Puzz-3D product is games of the puzzles on the computer. One must first build the puzzle, which is a digital version of an existing 3D puzzle, by clicking and dragging the pieces. When completed, a fictional mystery must be solved taking place in that landmark. Some available are the Orient Express and the Notre Dame Cathedral.
