Washington, DC, January 3, 2019  —According to a recent online survey conducted by Ipsos, on behalf of Ravensburger, nearly half (48%) of American adults enjoy puzzling at least once a year – that is, jigsaw puzzles meant for adults (e.g., those that have 500+ pieces) – including one in five who say they puzzle monthly/weekly/daily (19%). Those most likely to enjoy puzzling at least monthly include men (24% vs. 14% of women), younger adults (34% of 18-34-year-olds vs. 10% of those age 55+), and those with children living at home (28% vs. 15% of those with no kids). On the other hand, 52% of American adults say that they puzzle less than once a year or never.
