Looking good. I think the option to market them as a stackable game would work well for those planning to sell them. There's only one thing you can really do with a puzzle and once thats done, I think the "replay value" really drops off. The stackable option bring new (and as you said, "infinite") angle to it.

Are you planning to make a variety of sets?

Momma's Kitties? I had completely forgotten about this plan set. I love the photo. That is a great shot!

Yep, it's in the bargain basement. https://www.toymakingplans.com/website/PlanSets/MommysKittys.html
They look like a single purpose toy, but once I I've showed our kids how to stack them, they fell in love with them. They even sell great at craft shows.

I also agree with Trav. Puzzles can get pretty boring after time. Put it together, done. Repeat. Stackable puzzles are a completely different level. Only your and especially child's imagination is the limit.

What I also find important with these puzzles is being easily recognisable by shape (cat, dog, dinosaur etc.) . And also be (possibly fully) usable as a single toy. I've cut several not so well thought out puzzles where some animals would not be able stand on a flat surface at all. Not good.

The above mentioned puzzles by Trav look very good and I'd like to see your version of them.

Cant wait.

Trav-
The answer is yes. I have a bunch of designs I've created that need to be translated into plan sets.

These are a couple of shots of the animal puzzle final prototypes for the plan set. It is a lot easier to cut these out of one piece of 3/4" board then stain or paint each animal a different color. Using several different woods is a little more time consuming to get a good fit. Scene File 005.png

John,
     LOVE IT!!!!!!
     Yes make a few sets periodically through the year. Puzzles are great at the shows that I do. Love the different animals in the puzzle prototype.  Great job and looking forward to seeing a few sets soon.

To Everyone,
     Yes doing puzzles seems redundant, put on plan on the board, cut, sand, repeat.  But I do a few puzzles (15) at different shows and kids love them not matter their age.  The best part is of course at Christmas time someone is always looking for an inexpensive stocking stuffer, they are great for that.

Looking forward to the first plan set.

Hi John,

I love this puzzle and would definitely buy the plan.  I've found that people of all ages enjoy the stacking puzzles.  I recently made the stacking goats puzzle (from picture provided by Rosie) for my Dad and he sends me pictures each week of them in some new configuration.  The best part is the ease of making them and the minimal amount of material required.

Thanks!

Jason
