Puzzle Master Completes “World’s Largest Jigsaw Puzzle” in 460 Hours


Redditor manne0708 has a passion for jigsaw puzzles unlike anything we’ve ever seen. Within the past year, the Danish student has assembled nearly 74,000 tiny pieces into two gigantic scenes. Her most recent jigsaw endeavor currently holds the title of being “The World’s Largest Jigsaw Puzzle,” and it’s composed of an astounding 40,320 pieces. Once completed, it measured 680 centimeters (22.3 feet) long and 192 centimeters (6.3 feet) wide.

Manne0708’s dedication constructed 10 vignettes from classic Disney films that are each separated by a border of whimsical stars. Together, they form a giant homage to the characters and beloved childhood stories.

Logistics dictated that the puzzle pieces were separated into large bags—one for each film. This made the task of matching the tiny shapes slightly easier, although it was still time consuming—all told, it took manne0708 about 460 active hours of work that was done over the course of about two months.

If you want to try your hand at it, this massive puzzle is available on Amazon.













Here’s the other puzzle manne0708 completed this year. It previously held the distinction of “World’s Largest Jigsaw Puzzle,” and she said that it was harder to construct than its larger successor.
