Springbok has created 5 new puzzles in their Springbok PuzzlesToRemember line. These are specialized puzzles for Alzheimer's patients. Here is what Springbok says about each puzzle in this series:


"This puzzle is from the specially created line of Springbok Puzzles: Puzzles to Remember. Designed for those who suffer from Alzheimer’s Disease, the extra large pieces allow for easy gripping and minimize the frustration caused by regular-sized pieces. The artwork is chosen for its beauty, and is a sharp contrast to other puzzles with a similar piece count designed for children. Many customers value these puzzles for not only the aforementioned reasons, but also as a source of comfort, joy and as a way to connect with a loved one."
