We have created and added these free, interactive, on-line jigsaw puzzles for your use. They are in a Download format using RealPlayer that you may need to install (Look for RealPlayer 8 Basic. It's free. Click here.) 
But the best news...
   You can't lose the pieces!

Other Notes That You Have Told Us About:

* Unfortunately, these puzzles do not work on MAC computers. Sorry.

* With the larger the puzzle pieces (for younger audiences), the more distinct the lines are between each piece. This is even more noticeable on black and white graphics but does not affect the pleasure of doing the puzzle.

* If you are returning to the same puzzle for a second, third or hundredth time, we have found it quicker to select "Yes" to the prompt question "Replace this file?" Computers are smart. When you do return to a page anywhere, the loading speed is significantly reduced. Pathway memory is a good thing.

* Puzzle pieces tend to 'hide' under the menu in the upper left corner. Place your cursor on the top of the menu box, just as you would any puzzle piece, and move it somewhere else.
