The Wooden Jigsaw Puzzles Trend and Why They’re So Awesome



Wooden Jigsaw Puzzles

‍Wooden jigsaw puzzles are as popular today as ever. In fact, many people are addicted to them — not just because they’re fun to do but also because they provide a great stress-relieving activity. If you’ve ever played a traditional wooden jigsaw puzzle, you’ll know that the process is quite different from what you might assume. Instead of following a clear picture order, each piece is randomly matched to form an image that fits together perfectly. This forces the players to use their logical thinking skills to put the pieces together. It’s also much more difficult than it sounds — especially if you have trouble making logic connections or don’t like doing complicated things. 

Today we’ll learn more about this new trend of jigsaw puzzles, their benefits for health, and also their booming expansion with YouTube channels dedicated to them and world competitions with ever younger players.

What is a wooden jigsaw puzzle?

A wooden jigsaw puzzle is an activity in which small pieces of wood are used to create a picture. Usually, the pieces are vaguely related to one another, and the image they form is often a recognizable object. For example, you might use pieces related to a certain scene from a movie to create the image of a house. The challenge is to put the pieces together in such a way that they form a recognizable object. 

Some wooden jigsaw puzzles are for fun, and some are for practice. There are also wooden jigsaw puzzles that you can use to help your child learn how to solve problems logically. The reason these puzzles are so popular is because they can be very addictive. In fact, they are a form of puzzle gaming that can be played by people of all ages.

The benefits of wooden jigsaw puzzles

There are so many types of jigsaw puzzles, and all of them can be an excellent way to relax and unwind. For example, Lubiwood’s wooden jigsaw puzzles help reduce stress and boost your mood. Many people use wooden jigsaw puzzles as a way to unwind after a long day at work or in school. The process of taking your mind off of your daily troubles can be very helpful in this regard. Wooden jigsaw puzzles can provide a great way to get your brain active and exercising. 

As we grow older, our brains tend to shrink, which can lead to many health problems. Studies have shown that puzzles can help your brain stay healthy by keeping it active and preventing it from getting too large.

How to do a wooden jigsaw puzzle

When you’re ready to get started with a wooden jigsaw puzzle, you’ll need a few items. For instance, you’ll need a wooden jigsaw puzzle, a pencil, an eraser, and tape. If you want to use a wooden jigsaw puzzle to practice your logical thinking skills, you’ll also want to have a book or something similar to write on. Before you get started, you’ll want to set up and prepare your puzzle. 

This will make the puzzle go faster and make it easier to see the image you’re trying to create. For example, you might want to outline the outside border of the puzzle or mark the inside border with an X or some other symbol. This can help you know where to start. Another thing to keep in mind is the difficulty level you want to use. 

Some puzzles have a very difficult level, while others have a much easier level. You might want to consider the age of your child and the age of your puzzle to get an idea of what level might be best for each person.

YouTube channels dedicated to the game

If you’re interested in trying wooden jigsaw puzzles out, you might want to consider watching some YouTube videos. There are many channels that feature puzzles like KarenPuzzles, and some published videos have more than a million views. 

You might find a video that interests you, or you might decide to create your own puzzle video. If you’re interested in creating your own puzzle video, you’ll want to start by choosing a puzzle. Once you have a puzzle in mind, you can start planning the steps you want to take in your video. You can create a script to help you remember the order of things you want to cover.

Competitions with participants as young as 5 years old

One of the best things about wooden jigsaw puzzles is that they’re something you can do with anyone — even young children. Some wooden jigsaw puzzles even come with a guide that gives kids as young as 5 years old step-by-step instructions on how to do them. 

If you have a child who would like to try wooden jigsaw puzzles, there are many options available. Kids often like puzzles that are colorful and detailed, so you might want to look into a puzzle with a country scene, something from a book, or a child-friendly character. You can also look into online puzzle sites that allow you to customize your puzzle.


Wooden jigsaw puzzles are an excellent way to relax and de-stress after a long day, but they are also great for people of all ages. They can help improve your logical thinking skills, help you develop creativity, and provide a way to relieve stress. wooden jigsaw puzzles don’t have to be a chore, though. You can get creative with them and make them into a fun hobby that anyone can enjoy.

Top 6 Keycaps For Your Gaming Keyboards



Top 6 Keycaps For Your Gaming Keyboards

Whether you want to game with efficiency or game in style, finding the right keycaps for your keyboard have always proven to be trial and error. However, in this article, we are going to give you a rundown of some of the best keycaps that will complete your setup.


First up on our list we’ve got the PBT Keycap Set. Over hours and hours of tapping away the face of the keys eventually develop this glossy look as the texture starts to fade. With the new PBT thermoplastic keycaps from Razer, they have a much more durable texture that lasts longer to provide grip and prevent you from fat fingering other keys.

The keys are crafted using “Doubleshot” moulding meaning the walls are thicker to withstand hard use and provide more satisfying keystrokes. The hard plastic and solid build make for an awesome typing experience. As for the aesthetics, the keys come in four different colours; Classic Black, Mercury White, Quartz Pink and Razer Green which are all backlight compatible so you can show off all your cool ripple effects.

The keycaps are cherry profile and compatible with all cherry-style switches available from other brands. They do cash in $36 per set but you pay for quality.


Next up we’ve got Funkeyzz and they are guaranteed to put the finishing touches on your gaming setup. Funkeyzz specialises in high-quality resin sculpted keycaps of our favourite anime and video game characters. You can browse a wide variety of anime keycaps such as Demon Slayer, One Piece, Naruto and Pokemon just to name a few! Not to mention gaming inspired keycaps from the likes of PUBG and Super Mario.

If you dabble in a bit of League of Legends and are looking for something a bit more low profile, they’ve got you covered. Their League of Legends keycap sets come with all of the champion ability, summoner spell and recall keybindings to spice up your MOBA controls.

The keycaps all come in a cherry profile and are compatible with any cherry-switch mechanical keyboard. If you’re new to replacing keycaps they also have a convenient little demo on their site to show you how it’s done. As for the sculptures, they are all sturdy, hand painted figures with that attention to detail and every nook and cranny.

A funky keycap from Funkeyzz costs around $20 a pop with free international shipping on orders over $30, so it’s the perfect opportunity to start a collection.


Up next, we’ve got the Corsair Gaming PBT Double-shot Keycap set. The keycap set comes in two different colours black and white that are both backlit compatible so you don’t need to worry about covering up your RGB keyboard.

Again this set of keycaps is designed using a double-shot moulding process which increases thickness and durability for even the most intense of tapping. The keycaps are made from PBT similar to the Razer keycaps, a solid thermoplastic with hundreds of electronic uses. Here they provide long-lasting textured keycaps that won’t get worn down.

The entire set comes with all 105 keys at a price of $36.50 just a touch more expensive than the Razer PBT set but are both good price points for what they provide. A nice little kicker that Corsair throws in is a keycap remover to make the whole process of taking your keys off much easier. It can be a pain to manually pinch each key and pull it off so this is a nice little tool to have around if you find yourself renovating your keyboard often.

Republic of Gamers (ROG)

If you’re a MOBA or FPS player you might want to check out the ROG Gaming Keycap Set. Their keycaps cover the main conventional controls Q, W, E, R, A, S and D with their high quality textured keycaps. The set also comes complete with a metal alloy, 3D cut ROG logo keycap that can be placed anywhere to act as a nice showpiece.

Each of the functional keys has a coarse textured finish that allows you to immediately distinguish the controls without having to take your eyes off of the action. Their textured coating adds grip for better control and enhanced performance.

On the face of each key are red markings that when put together in the appropriate order on the keyboard reveal a ROG logo emblazoned across the seven different keycaps. All of the keycaps are backlit compatible but come with their own side lit design. The carefully etched cyber patterns along the side of the keys make for a unique light display when placed on an RGB keyboard.

Despite not being made from PBT the keycaps have a coating designed to increase durability and have a similar shelf life to traditional sturdy PBT keycaps. The ROG keycap set is compatible with Cherry MX switches so it’s ready-made to fit on a variety of keyboards. ROG generously throws in a keycap remover also but emphasises not to overuse as it could damage the coating with repetitive use.

The ROG keycap set costs $30.50, a decent price point for those who are avid MOBA and FPS players.


We have HyperX to thank for the first set of pudding keycaps on our list. For those who are unfamiliar with keycap terminology, pudding keycaps are keys that have a translucent frame around the sides that allow for extra lighting to shine through, giving them that sci-fi glow we know and love.

The HyperX Pudding Keycap set comes with all 104 keys with a translucent double-layer pudding design. On the face of each of the keys is HyperX’s signature font for a sleek unmistakable finish. You’ll be pleased to know that the HyperX pudding keycaps are also made from PBT using double-shot moulding technology to provide you with that durability you’re after.

The thick walls of the keycaps make for better resistance to friction, wear and solvents in case you are to spill something onto your keyboard accidentally. This is great news as we wouldn’t want anything to ruin the design. The dual layer translucent design makes for stunning effects when placed on an RGB keyboard. The set comes in two different colours, black and white so variety is the only thing hurting these keycaps. However, they redeem themselves with a lower price point of only $30.40 for the entire set.

HyperX sweetened the deal by throwing in a stylish branded keycap remover for free which is just showing off now. The keycaps are cherry MX compatible meaning they will work with off-brand mechanical keyboards also.


Last but certainly not least are SteelSeries PrismCaps. This set of pudding keycaps are also made from reliable PBT and double-shot moulding technology for that heavy use. The translucent lower layer design enhances the lighting display to allow brilliant RGB illumination.

One thing that sets SteelSeries apart from the rest is their selection of keyboard languages. SteelSeries offers keycaps suitable for US, UK and Nordic keyboard displays. Convenient for not having any confusing misinputs. Not to mention the set comes in three awesome colours, black, pink and white.

The PrismCaps are compatible with Cherry MX switches so they are suitable for most off-brand keyboards but it’s always good to check before ordering just in case. The set wouldn’t be complete without a keycap remover to safely swap each key so they throw this in for free. SteelSeries PrismCaps have a very appealing price point of only $21.91 while on sale so is certainly a very good bang for your buck.

So, hopefully, you’ve gotten some inspiration and an itch to kit out your keyboards after reading our list!
