What do you do when you’ve perfected banana bread, cleaned your windows, finished all your books, learned a new language and shaved your head? This puzzle is here to keep you busy until the end of lockdown (and potentially for a while after.)

This isn’t just any puzzle. This is the world’s largest puzzle

It comes in at a whopping 51,300 pieces, meaning you won’t just need a lot of patience and concentration to complete it, but an enormous house with a lot of spare floor space too. 174 sq ft, to be precise. 

Created by Kodak, the puzzle is made up of photographs of the ‘27 Wonders of the World’, including India’s Taj Mahal, Tower Bridge in London, the Eiffel Tower, New York’s Statue of Liberty, the Great Wall of China, the Colosseum in Rome and the pyramids in Egypt. 

The chance to take this puzzle on will set you back a fair bit – $500 (£400, 460) – but when you think about how many hours of entertainment you’re buying it almost seems like good value. Almost.
