Design-first Puzzle Approach

Our puzzle philosophy is simple and perhaps a bit unconventional.
We start with the box.

We begin with what you experience first — the packaging.

And then everything from there to the last piece put in place must be an absolute delight before we’ll let a puzzle design come to life as a Blue Kazoo puzzle.

With this as our guiding principle...

We make puzzles that are satisfying to construct and beautiful in your home.

And we have fun doing it.

(...most of the time.)

Who We Are

Blue Kazoo was started by Josh Sowin and Abraham Piper.

As business partners and friends for over 15 years, Josh and Abraham decided...

Whoa! Hang on. Stop.

That sentence was already boring. How about a quick story instead:

They once challenged strangers in a 4th-floor office across the street to a Post-It-note war by creating an 11-foot long Nyan cat.

The strangers won the war immediately.

So where else could Josh and Abraham put to use their visceral distaste for boredom and apparently abundant free time?

 

What next venture could possibly offer an opportunity to make something as simple, stunning, and just plain fun as a sticky-note kitty?

Now their love of creative absurdity and ridiculous perfectionism can run free. And, as it turns out, these traits actually make for good puzzles and happy customers

Over time, we’ve grown to a team of seven...

Our product manager Xin keeps the Blue Kazoo machine in smooth operating order. Liam and Paddy will do anything for the gram, so they’re over social. As the resident brain, Jeremy is in charge of data and marketing. And when you reach out to us, Shannon is the lovely voice at the other end of the line. (Metaphorically speaking — Who makes phone calls anymore?) 

All the while, Josh and Abraham continue to dream up puzzles. And occasionally they even decide to make one. As long as it looks good on the box.

If You're Still Curious...

What customers are saying

(Because that matters more than what we say.)
