More about this Kodak 51300 pieces puzzle
This puzzle has as picture 27 beautiful pictures, 27 wonders of the world. And then you have to think of buildings. Kodak was of course originally 'of the photos and maker of the film rolls'; Wikipedia describes Kodak as “Kodak is an American multinational company that has been active in the photography and film industry since the late 19th century“. All 27 wonders of the world on the puzzle are all photos taken by professional photographers. The name on the box is also 'Largest puzzle in the world', but that is no longer the case. That is because this54.000 Pieces: Journey through Art by Grafika'.
The 7 wonders of the world: are they also on the puzzle?
Yes! The 7 Wonders of the World is a list of 7 very special buildings:
- Chichen Itza in Mexico
- Cristo Redentor in Brazil
- The Great Wall of China
- Machu Picchu in Peru
- The Rock Houses of Petra in Jordan
- The Taj Mahal in India
- The Colosseum in Italy
In addition to the 7 wonders of the world, you will also find, for example: Mount Fuji, Neuschwanstein Castle (ie yes, from that puzzle mat!), New York skyline, Great Barrier Reef (Australia) coral, Colosseum, Great Wall of China, Taj Mahal, Tower Bridge, Eiffel Tower.
What's in the box of this Kodak puzzle?
Included in the box:
1. Three Cardboard boxes containing 9 plastic bags with a puzzle in them
That is a total of 27 bags with puzzle pieces of 1900 pieces each. If you really want to make it difficult for yourself and REALLY want to start puzzling, then you mix up all those 27 bags of pieces. That gets a lot more difficult. So what you actually do is make a puzzle of 27 pieces 1900 times and you put all those 27 puzzles together. So that you have that one very large puzzle of 51300 pieces. But that's actually how it always goes with those really big puzzles and also among the world records for the biggest puzzles ever.
It contains things like 'don't put the puzzle together', or 'what to do if you have a missing piece' or 'the description of the wonders of the world – which one is which'.
3. The Poster
This poster is really small and you would actually expect more of this, especially if you are doing a monster job of a few hundred hours of puzzling…..but: there is 1 poster with all puzzles with an image. However, the pictures of each puzzle are just as small as the pictures on the box of the puzzle. And that for a puzzle of almost 2000 pieces. That's really not nice. You certainly expect more from this. Anyway, I'd say be prepared when you start.
An unpacking video!
Fortunately, there is also an unpacking video of this Biggest Kodak puzzle (via Maxine The Puzzle Queen):
How big is this puzzle?
Dimensions: 8,7 meters x 1,9 meters. If you are going to make it, make sure you have enough space somewhere. And that you have a good surface to puzzle on. You can read dimensions of all kinds of other puzzles on my page 'Dimensions puzzles'.
How long will it take you to complete this puzzle?
There is no information anywhere on how long a puzzle of 51300 pieces takes. If I look at how long it takes me to complete a 1000-piece puzzle by Jan van Haasteren, that is an average of 8 hours (read more detailed info on my page 'How long does a 1000 piece puzzle take?'). Suppose you do 8 hours * 51 (because you make about 8 times a puzzle of 1000 pieces) = 408 hours. But: that's a fairly simple puzzle. I now know that a puzzle of 42000 pieces takes about 500 hours. So: I would say that this puzzle of 51300 pieces will take you about 600 hours. Offff……..

Where can you buy these?
It is difficult to buy these, at least not at Bol.com or Amazon.nl. It is via Amazon.com (but there it is sold out or 'Currently Not Available'). If you go through the website of Kodak itself surfs, you come to the website of cra-z-artshop.com, and you can order it there for 599 dollars, about 505 euros (September 2021). However, I filled out the order form on that website, and they only ship to America or Canada.
Don't forget the shipping costs, because this puzzle weighs about 18,5 kilos!
