Fact Friday--The World's Largest Puzzle!

If you have been in the office recently (within the past year or so!), you more than likely have seen the large jigsaw puzzle hanging in the main hallway!  The puzzle was put together mostly by Trishell, who works in our front office, and Amber, who works in the back with Dr. Memmott.  The puzzle took a little over 2 years for them to complete!  Here are some statistics on the puzzle:

  • The puzzle consists of 24,000 pieces 
  • It comes in 4 individual packages, which are divided up into 4 vertical sections
  • The puzzle comes in a smaller, 3,000 piece version...but, what fun is that???
  • This puzzle was released and put on store shelves on March 10, 2007.  The one that hangs on the Willow Creek wall was start in April, 2007.  We don't waste much time! 
  • The box that the puzzle comes in is 22.5 inches wide, 13.5 inches deep, and 10 inches tall and weight approximately 26 pounds! 
  • Once assembled, the puzzle measures 15 feet in lenght and 5 feet in height!

We are so proud of this puzzle hanging in our hallway!  It definitely adds character to our office and we are so proud of Amber and Trishell for sticking it out so we can have something fun for our little patients to look at!

I had always wondered who had the patience to complete that puzzle! Nice work ladies, my kids love the puzzle and we've marveled at it many times.

My kids are always asking who did that puzzle. I never knew. Now I can tell them, they will be excited that they know you too. You are the ones always taking care of them when we come to see Dr Memmott. That is such a great job you did. Way to go!!!
