Hawaiian Islands Puzzle

An Hawaiian Island themed wooden peg puzzle featuring the main 8 islands of the Hawaiian Archipelago. The puzzle frame and pieces are made from Baltic Birch plywood with poplar pegs. This puzzle is well suited for children 2 years or older.

Excellent for improving your child's sight recognition of the Hawaiian islands and dexterity as they put the pieces together. The puzzle could be a great way to share one's fondness of the Aloha State.

Each of the 8 pieces includes a geographically accurate major Hawai'ian island, the island's name, and the islands' nickname. The spacing between islands has been modified slightly to make the distance between puzzle pieces workable.

The puzzle frame also includes an etched pineapple and compass rose.

Each puzzle features the following 8 pieces:
  • Hawai'i
  • Maui
  • Kaho'olwe
  • Moloka'i
  • Lana'i
  • O'ahu
  • Kaua'i
  • Ni'ihau

The puzzle is etched and cut using a high powered laser. The results are lovingly hand sanded, drilled, glued, edge routed, and finished by us. We designed the puzzle layout but do not perform the actual laser cutting locally.

The puzzle is finished using clear, Oil Based Polyurethane. The finish brings out the grain in the birch nicely, but will tend to lightly yellow over time with age. This light yellowing is accelerated by direct sunlight exposure but will not affect the puzzle's aesthetics or usability otherwise. The polyurethane should protect the wood for a long time from normal toddler/child wear and tear.

The edges of the puzzle frame are slightly rounded. This makes them slightly less dangerous if flung across the room like a Frisbee by an overzealous toddler.
