Welcome to the Imaginatorium Shop, now in our sixteenth year!

We have reached a range of 1200 puzzles in stock, and in the New Year we will have plenty more new ones. There has been a trend in recent years towards more of the "novelty" small puzzles, but we will do our best to keep a good range at the challenging end too. After a gap of two or three years with exactly one puzzle over 3000 pieces (the superb Yanoman 5000 of Mount Fuji, we have just added a couple of new 4000 Disney puzzles, which should keep you busy. And lots more to come, new artists, upgraded rewards for One Piece pirates, and more...
