How do you find large-piece puzzles?

The previous puzzle thread got me wondering where I might be able to find large piece puzzles (200-300 pieces) for my mom? She loves to work them, but until she gets her eye surgery completed, she can't work the tiny pieces. Any ideas? I'd like to find a few to get her for Christmas...

I order puzzles from Amazon. I also receive a catalog called Bits and Pieces that has puzzles of all sizes. I personally only have an attention span for 500 piece puzzles . I am totally in awe of those of you that do 1000 piece puzzles, and do them so quickly!


OTOH— maybe if I didn’t drink wine while working on them.......

I googled make your own jigsaw puzzles. It looks as if you could use your own pictures and custom design the puzzle with number pieces.

Buffalo Games has a set of puzzles called Memory Lane. They are EZ grip and large. They are very vibrant colors of old time scenes. You can get them through their website, amazon or if you have one around Farm and Fleet.

Does your mom have one of those special tables that holds and stores puzzle pieces? That might be a great gift to go along with a couple of puzzles.

Along with the size, I find the quality can really effect putting them together.
I found this :

When my mom was with us, we often got her Springbok and Ravensbuger both had some larger pieced ones.
