3-in-1 puzzle by Jan van Haasteren or Jan van Haasteren 3 x 1000
A 3-in-1 puzzle means that there are 3 puzzles in 1 box. On this site you will find all 3 x 1000 puzzles by Jan van Haasteren, below in an overview. It is certainly not the case that these puzzles have the same subject, that can be quite different. It is also not the case that the Jan van Haasteren puzzles 3 in 1 all contain the same number of pieces. So it is best to have a 3-in-1 puzzle box containing 1 puzzle of 1000 pieces, 1 puzzle of 750 pieces and 1 puzzle of 500 pieces. As an example of a 3-in-1 puzzle box, this one:
I made these 3 puzzles and in this box were the puzzles of 1000 pieces:
3-in-1 puzzles pros and cons?
In my opinion there are some pros and cons.
- Benefit: if you buy this puzzle of 3 in 1, you only have € 7,25 in shipping costs, because it is a relatively small package. A bit heavier, but nothing more. That is cheaper than buying a puzzle of 3 pieces separately, then you will lose 1000 x € 3 in shipping costs. unless you buy these 7,25 puzzles at the same time from the same person of course, then it doesn't matter.
- Benefit: once in a while, look at the list below, there are 3 puzzles with the same theme, that is extra fun, if you like football puzzles for example. Or like a sports puzzle. But most of the list below are 3 in 1 puzzles that have nothing to do with each other in terms of theme.
– Disadvantage: if you only want a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle, that doesn't always make sense with a 3-in-1 box. There may also be puzzles with 500 or 750 pieces in between. I think that's a big drawback myself.
– Disadvantage: it can (if you want to) be more difficult to resell your puzzle. Someone must happen to have not yet completed all three puzzles. If someone has already made 1 of them, that sale will be dropped. So your resale market is shrinking.
