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 their line, they decided to make the plunge to exhibit at the NY Toy Fair and see what people thought of their designs.
Seeing all of the puzzles in the market at Toy Fair was eye opening. They quickly realized that there was a lack of interesting imagery in the puzzle world. They 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, they have carefully expanded their products by choosing each new product line to follow this philosophy. Through the years, their 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, their products are all gallery worthy gifts.
