Blue Kazoo is a premium jigsaw puzzle company that focuses on a few favorite 1,000-piece puzzles at a time, artfully designed and conscientiously crafted.
Design-first Puzzle Approach
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.
We make puzzles that are satisfying to construct and beautiful in your home.
(...most of the time.)
Who We Are
As business partners and friends for over 15 years, Abraham Piper and Josh Sowin 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?
Over time, we’ve grown to a team of seven...
Our product manager Xin keeps the Blue Kazoo machine in smooth operating order. Lucy and Greg 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.
Blue Kazoo is a remote team, but we consider ourselves co-headquartered in Los Angeles and Minneapolis, Josh and Abraham’s hometowns.
