Do you enjoy doing jigsaw puzzles but end up getting disappointed when the finished product looks all cheesy? Not kittens and rainbows again! The Satellite Hometown Puzzle lets you piece together a satellite image of your hometown, so that once you’re finished you get to sit back and enjoy an aerial view of the hood.
Satellite Hometown Puzzle
Imagine the fun of working a jigsaw puzzle centered on your home.
Made from a United States Geological Survey map, the 400-piece puzzle shows main roads, contour lines, water features, vegetation, and notable buildings and structures. At the center is a house-shaped piece representing your address. Completed 18-1/4″ x 12-1/4″ puzzle shows an area zooming in to 1-1/2 miles from east to west, 1 mile from north to south. Arrives in a presentation box with space for a personal message.

The Satellite Hometown Puzzle can be given as a going-away gift to give him/her a ‘piece’ of home. Maybe give it to a friend who’s been laid off and has a lot of time to kill.
Or get a puzzle made of your favorite city or location. It doesn’t have to be your hometown. There’s more motivation to finish when all the places you love to frequent and the places you miss suddenly manifest. See how well you know your neighborhood.
One person who bought the puzzle was irked about the photo not being included in the box. I guess at that point you’d have to consult satellite maps on the computer. There are only 400 pieces; so it’s not as bad as doing the 32,256-piece World’s Largest Jigsaw Puzzle or the 1000-piece World’s Smallest Jigsaw Puzzle.
The Satellite Hometown Puzzle can be ordered at Skymall.com from $39.95 to $49.95.
