We were kindly given the chance to receive a personalised jigsaw puzzle from TinyMe for review. I had never come across TinyMe before, but once I checked out their website and the range of products they have to offer, I immediately said yes. We were offered a puzzle of our choice and I chose an intermediate level puzzle for BattleKid. The intermediate jigsaw puzzle from TinyMe is designed with 4 and 5-year olds in mind. As he is almost four, I thought it would be a good idea to get a puzzle that he could grow into. And if you like the sound of the intermediate personalised jigsaw puzzles from TinyMe so far, I advise you to read on!
BattleKid enjoys puzzles and has a set of four with puzzles ranging from 12 to 24 pieces. He can easily do the 12 and 16-piece puzzles of the set, but still needs some help with the bigger ones. That said he still enjoys trying to fit the pieces together.
Personalised jigsaw puzzles from TinyMe come doubled sided so there is twice the fun. They are made from premium quality materials and are printed in high resolution colour. They are also coated with a clear gloss for extra durability. And they come with a handy felt pouch which will make tidying up easier, and storage even easier.
Creating personalised jigsaw puzzles from TinyMe
Choosing your personalised jigsaw puzzles from TinyMe couldn’t be easier. You first chose the age range suitable for your child, or children, from the four choices.
- Beginner – 19 months+ is a 6-piece puzzle
- Junior – 3 years+ is a 12-piece puzzle
- Intermediate – 4 years+ is a 24-piece puzzle
- Advanced – 5 years+ is a 48-piece puzzle.
Once you have chosen the degree of difficulty for your puzzle, you then move onto your choice of design and colour. There are 14 designs to choose from, and 6 colour choices. You can also choose between an A4 or an A3-sized puzzle. And you can preview your design before you commit to purchasing it.
I chose an intermediate puzzle from the personalised jigsaw puzzles from TinyMe for BattleKid. As he is quite good at recognising his numbers already, I chose the Alphabet puzzle to help him with learning and recognising his letters. I chose to have it in Bright Bolds, as I like bold and bright colours. I inserted his name into the website and was very happy with the design.
What do I think of the personalised jigsaw puzzles from TinyMe?
I was pleasantly surprised when I opened our package. As the puzzle we received was A4, there was minimal packaging (which is always good in my books), and I was very happy when I opened the puzzle. The puzzle is made of really good quality materials and feels sturdy and durable. These are important properties to any children’s toys.
There is a lovely smooth feeling to the surface and edges of each piece, and the gloss coating isn’t noticeable. Each piece is quite chunky, so should easily be managed by pre-schooler BattleKid. The pieces fit nicely into each other but aren’t too tight either. I’ll admit BattleKid hasn’t gotten his hands on this yet as it is going to be added to his Christmas gifts.
The colours are bright and vibrant, and the design is exactly as it was shown on the screen when I created it. The storage felt pouch has a Velcro closing and is ideal for storing the puzzle flat. This means it won’t take up as much storage space as a puzzle box. Nor will it take up much luggage room when we look to bring it on holidays with us.

What I don’t like about the personalised jigsaw puzzles from TinyMe
I am really impressed by the personalised jigsaw puzzles from TinyMe. They are well designed and will stand the test of time with children. The colours we chose are bright and vibrant, which for me, is a must in children’s toys and puzzles. They are also an ideal personalised gift for a special occasion such as a christening, or for birthdays and Christmas.
I love the fact that they don’t take up a lot of room, which is always a good thing when you live in a small home like we do since moving to Portugal. Puzzle boxes always need space and it’s a luxury for us these days. But the personalised jigsaw puzzles from TinyMe are designed to be stored flat in their felt pouch, which they come supplied with meaning less storage space.
I am always on the hunt for educational toys that we can take on our travels and these jigsaw puzzles are ideal as they don’t weigh much. As they are designed to be stored flat, they are perfect for popping inside a suitcase or cabin bag. We could have done with this on our recent trips to America and Bluestone. Also, both the Alphabet and Numbers puzzle are ideal as educational toys.
So, if you like the sound of the personalised jigsaw puzzles from TinyMe, then I urge you to check out their website. But be warned, you might make more than just one purchase. I’ve just ordered BattleKid some more items from their website. Don’t tell BattleDad. Or why not try winning yourself one with my giveaway.
