Founded in 2007 by two college pals, New York Puzzle Company started with a simple idea of making a puzzle of the iconic NYC subway map. With only six puzzle designs in our line, we decided to make the plunge to exhibit at the NY Toy Fair and see what people thought of our designs.
Seeing all of the puzzles in the market at Toy Fair was eye opening. We quickly realized that there was a lack of interesting imagery in the puzzle world. We always thought that puzzles should be more than just a fun activity to do at home – puzzles should be works of interesting art. Part fun activity and part home décor, rather than throw them away when finished, they should be kept on display.
Sticking with that concept, we have carefully expanded our products by choosing each new product line to follow this philosophy. Through the years, our line has grown to an expansive line of puzzles, playing cards, mugs, memory games and tote bags. From magazine covers with iconic art to composed art pieces with common themes, our products are all gallery worthy gifts.
