Picking The Useful Out Of the Useless!

When it comes to finding the best puzzle accessories, we had a real debate in the Geek’s Oasis office about what we should go for. There are a ton of different types of accessories for puzzles, but some of them we felt were just a waste of money and time.

That is why all of the accessories that have made our list today are things that we legit feel will help you put together your next jigsaw puzzle.

Ceaco The Puzzle Scoop

We feel that this puzzle scoop is the perfect way to kick off our puzzle accessories guide. This is practical and also a lot of fun.

The idea here is that you can scoop up a whole section of a puzzle, let’s say you are making a Disney Villains puzzle and you are working on Hades and need to get that over to the main puzzle, just scoop and place with this!

It also has a magnifying glass too which is great for seeing the finer details and also for pretending you are a detective!

Good To Know

  • Recommended age: 14 years and up
  • Has a magnifying glass
  • Great for moving puzzle pieces from one surface to another
  • There is also a light on this so this does require 76A batteries
  • This is one of our favorite puzzle accessories and well worth the price

Jhomon Puzzle Glue

We have looked into puzzle glues in the past, and it's something that those who love to frame their puzzles really need to have. This particular brand of puzzle glue is great as it is safe for children, it does not smell and it is very easy to use.

It makes framing your puzzle so much easier and you get a lot of glue in this one stick, they say that it can glue up to 3000 puzzle pieces!

Good To Know

  • Size: 120 ml
  • Recommended age: 12 years and up
  • See our full guide for gluing instructions

Buffalo Games Puzzle Sorting Trays

If you are putting together a jigsaw puzzle as large as The Death Star you will need to have some puzzle sorting trays to make your life easier. These had to be on our puzzle accessories list and these mean you can put a certain type of piece all together until you are ready to make it.

Let’s say you are making a Batman puzzle for example and you have all of the pieces of Joker, but you are not ready to put Joker in the puzzle. You can put all those pieces into one of the trays until you are ready.

Good To Know

  • Size: 7.5 x 7.5 inches
  • These are made by acclaimed puzzle company, Buffalo Games

Buffalo Games Puzzle Presto! Peel & Stick Puzzle Saver

Check Price on Amazon

Why We At Geek’s Oasis Love It

While we feel that puzzle glue is one of the best puzzle accessories, we know that not everyone loves glue, heck someone at the Geek’s Oasis office, glued their head to their shoulder!

This is a reference to the hilarious scene in The Simpsons where Ralph Wiggum somehow manages to glue his head to his shoulder!

Anyway, this is pretty neat as the idea here is that you just peel the sticky sheets, stick them to the back of your jigsaw puzzle and it holds it all together. You can cut this so you only need to use as much as the puzzle requires.

Good To Know

  • Recommended age: 14 years and up
  • Included in this pack are four sticker sheets
  • This is made by Buffalo Games and we all know that they are one of the major players in the world of jigsaw puzzles!

You cannot be looking for the best puzzle accessory and not have something to actually make the puzzle on! This is a fantastic puzzle board that gives you a large space to put your jigsaw puzzle together.

It also offers you six sorting drawers for sorting your puzzle pieces too. What we really love about this are its legs, they look great in a pair of shorts….

In all seriousness, these legs that can fold up mean you can sit at this table on your lap, making putting together your jigsaw puzzle much more comfortable for you.

When it comes to puzzle accessories, you cannot go wrong with a puzzle roll-up mat. We have looked at many different roll-ups before, but this one here is held in high regard.

It gives you a nice clean surface to complete your puzzle. However, if you have to stop your puzzle odyssey, you can just roll it up in this puzzle mat and safely store it away until you are ready to continue. It also comes with a storage bag, and a set of elastic bands as well.

Good To Know

  • Size: 26 x 46 inches
  • This is an awesome purchase for someone that loves to make jigsaw puzzles, but who very rarely has the time to complete them in one sitting.

Why We At Geek’s Oasis Love It

Ok, so here us out with this one as we know a few of you have a confused look on your face. We feel that the right lighting is essential when you are putting together a jigsaw puzzle and that is why we feel this is such a great puzzle accessory.

You can move this freely and easily; you can even clip it onto a desk or puzzle table if you like. It is a really handy item and especially handy if the room you like to puzzle in is not all that greatly lit.

Plus as this is also a magnifying glass, it can make finding that elusive puzzle piece so much easier for you.

Good To Know

  • Size: 13.5 inches (neck)
  • The strength of the magnifying glass is 1.75X

ALL4JIG Adjustable Jigsaw Puzzle Board

We already have a puzzle table on this puzzle accessories list, but we felt that this jigsaw puzzle board was so cool, we had to include it as well. To start with, it gives you a nice large space to complete your puzzle.

It also offers you four large puzzle sorting drawers and it even comes with a cover! This way you can start your puzzle, put the cover on when you need a break, and easily slide this under a chair, the bed, or a table until you are ready to get back to work!

Good To Know

  • Size: 35 x 26 x 2.8 inches
  • The four puzzle sorting trays/drawers are going to come in really handy here
  • We love how this comes with a cover for that extra layer of protection

FAQs About Puzzle Accessories

We know that you may have more questions about puzzle accessories than Luke did for Yoda about becoming a Jedi. However, we do have this FAQ section to help you out, help you out with finding a puzzle accessory we mean, not becoming a Jedi!

The scene where Luke is bombarding Yoda with questions until he basically dies is something that many of us parents can relate to when we have had to answer a million questions from our kids!

What about a puzzle frame?

You know we did debate about including a puzzle frame on this list as technically you could argue that it is a puzzle accessory. However, we do have a whole guide dedicated to puzzle frames so we feel they were best kept there in their own guide.

How to pick the right “brand” of puzzle accessory?

One of the puzzle accessories that we have suggested for you is puzzle glue and that is a great example of what we are talking about here. You see, there are a ton of different companies that make puzzle glue, there are a ton of different companies that make puzzle mats, and so on. 

Well, our aim here at Geek's Oasis is to help you out with all this! We have picked the ones we like and think are the best, but of course, you can do your own homework and read as many reviews as you can. This way, you will be as informed as possible when it comes to making your purchase.

Are these puzzle accessories only for adults?

Well, most of these are safe for kids too. You can certainly use the puzzle scoop for scooping sand or take a round of ping-pong with it. 

But seriously, everything should be safe for kids, but maybe better keep an eye on the kids when they are using the puzzle glue. Although the glue we have on this post is water-soluble and non-toxic, we wouldn't recommend for example digesting it

Just One Last Little Thought Before You Go!

We feel that all of the puzzle accessories we have looked at today help you keep your puzzling projects neat and tidy, and will come in handy no matter if you are putting together a huge circle puzzle or a more modestly sized Demon Slayer puzzle.

These items will come in really handy for you from putting together the puzzle a more comfortable experience to helping you get it ready for framing.

Thanks for reading and happy puzzling!
