I have (4) Disney Enterprise puzzles for sale from 1933. They were published by Saalfield Pub. Co., Akron Oh. No. 913, printed in USA. Some of the characters on the puzzles are Clarabelle, Dippy, Minnie, Horace, and Mickey.

A year or so ago Milton Bradley had an offer to get a personalized puzzle from a photo by sending in 3upc's & $2.50.The offer expired on 6/30/00. I was wondering if aside from the offer, they still do this service, and how much it cost,etc. If not,do you know who would offer this service?
Thanks for your time, "MS"

Please see questions 220 on Page 16, 232 on Page 17. You may also do a search on-line for websites which offer personalized puzzles. A number of wooden puzzle cutters offer this service, including some of the ones we have links for on our LINKS page. We found these two offering cardboard puzzles, in a search, although we have not done business with them:

[292]from "JR"-28 August 2001:
Hello, I am trying to track down a copy of the PeaceTrek puzzle. It came out in the late 70s or very early 80s. I mail-ordered a copy back then (which unfortunately disappeared) from a small, politically-progressive outfit called Pueblo to People, which later changed names to Global Village (I believe) (not the modem-makers). They may have gone out of business.
The puzzle was square/rectangular, in the neighborhood of 24-30 inches (60-75 cm) in diameter, with a black edge and depicted a cartoon of a divided Earth: about one third of the planet was overrun by corporate giants, violence, pollution and consumerism, and the other 2 thirds of the planet depicted a vision of cooperation, health and sustainability. I believe they also made a poster with the same image.
I did a search of the internet, which I'm not expert at, and didn't find anything. Could you help?
Thanks very much for your kind assistance, "JR"

[293]from "PG"-30 August 2001:
I am looking for a puzzle I saw about 10-13 years ago. The picture when it was completed was a picture of different color puzzle pieces put together, but the actual pieces weren't just one color, they weren't cut like the picture on the box (if that makes sense). I saw this puzzle in a card store (might have been a Hallmark but I can't say for sure). It was for some sort of championship series, but again since it was so long ago I can't remember. What I do know is that it was the hardest puzzle I had ever seen and I kick myself everytime I remember it for not buying it then. If you know what I'm talking about or could pass on this information to some one who would, I would be greatful.
Thank you, "PG"

It now occurs to us that you may mean the "mosaic" puzzles produced by Buffalo Games. OR, you might have in mind a puzzle issued by Springbok, "The Puzzler", which depicted differently colored jigsaw puzzle pieces, but the pieces were not cut along color lines. Is this it?

Me Too! Response to number 30 June 23, 2001:
I also have a painting by the John Drescher Co. N.Y.
The subject matter is a women whom I believe to be either an early rendition of a justice figure or possibly a Goddess (because she is sitting on a round object possibly a planet).
If you have any information it would be great!

Where can I order some of Charles Wysocki's puzzles? The ones listed below are the ones we have been looking for:
Paper Route
Reel Dreams
Moving Day in Amish Country
Winter Bouquet
Hunter Horn Hollow
Hometown Falls
Flowerland
Amish Friends
Thicketberry Cove
Sew, Sew Relaxing
If you can help point me in the direction I need to order these puzzles, I will be very grateful.
Thank you, "DK"
***************
from Jim McW--3 September 2001:
If you didn't see our section about Wysocki puzzles, you can find it from the Main Page, by clicking on "ARTISTS". On that page, there is a link at the top of the page to the WYSOCKI page. There, you will find as nearly complete a list as we have been able to piece together, with the help of our many friends. There is also a link to the Charles Wysocki Gallery, where you can order one of the puzzles you have listed ( "Paper Route" ), if still available. For the rest, try the on-line puzzle stores on our LINKS page and on-line auction sites.
Thanks, Jim McW

[296]from "WC"-2 September 2001:
Hi:
I am hoping you can help me out. My Mom is looking to purchase some puzzles that she describes as 3D puzzles. She has one, but has no idea where she got it from or where to find more. On the box it says: King Tut the 3D structure layered puzzle. From Milton Bradley, Springfield MA 01101 dated 1996. A divn of Hasbro Made in USA. Then there is a note: 1995 Gil Druckman & Danny Herschkovitz manufactured and sold under license from The Really Useful Games Co. Ltd., London, England.
Any ideas on where to find puzzles like this?
I would appreciate any help you can offer. "DK"

from Jim McW--3 September 2001:
Please see question 120, on Page 9. Since these puzzles seem to have been issued several years ago, you'll probably have to look for them on the secondary market. Try the on-line puzzle stores on our LINKS page and on-line auction sites.
Thanks, Jim McW

Do you have any information on this..Would greatly be appreaciated..I am from Canada "JD"
***************
from Jim McW--3 September 2001:
We're not sure what kind of info you seek, since you've included the artist, title, maker, and date. We would expect such a puzzle, if complete and in good shape, to fetch a fair price at auction, at least $10-$20 Canadian.
Thanks, Jim McW

[300]from "CC"-9 September 2001:
Dear Sirs:
I am trying to find a 1000 piece puzzle by Charles Wysocki titled "Birds of a Feather" that I thought was the puzzle with the bi-planes. One coming in for a landing and three on the ground on the right side of the puzzle. However, when I pull up a picture of that puzzle, it is another picture. Can you tell me where I can purchase the one I described. When I was five years old, I was taken for a ride in a plane like that, and I want the puzzle to remember that day. That was 65 years ago. Thank you, "CC"
***************
from Jim McW--9 September 2001:
I'm not sure what happened, but you may have followed our link to the Charles Wysocki Gallery website, which has "Birds of a Feather" depicted. You seem to be describing "Four Aces Flying School", of which puzzle we do have an illustration, provided by a kind contributor. If the Gallery is out of that particular puzzle, you might look on internet auction sites.
Thanks, Jim McW

[301]from "JD"-10 September 2001:
Hi there,
I got a TUCO Puzzle No.6000 out of the Window Series.
The Window Series has window on top of the box shaped like a puzzle piece.
The title of the puzzle is: IT'S EASY DAD !
Could you please help me in dating this ?
Thanks a lot, "JD", AUSTRIA
***************
from Jim McW--10 September 2001:
We have this picture by that title in our files:
It's Easy, Dad"It's Easy, Dad"
This is from a different line of puzzles, though. Is it the same picture? We have the general impression that the window series of Tuco's were interlocking. If that is true, then they probably were issued in the 1950's or, possibly, the 1960's. If you can send a picture, we will be glad to post the illustration. We believe these to be pretty scarce, especially in good condition. Anyone have any additional information on these "window" Tuco's?
Thanks, Jim McW

from "JD"--19 September 2001:
Hi there,
thanks a lot for your help.
The picture is the right one, the puzzle I have from the Window Series is interlocking.
It's in very good condition, the only thing is, I have to check if it is complete.
Thanks again, "JD"
