Imaginatorium Shop, version 2

Welcome to the new Imaginatorium site at There is no "total reorganisation", so you should be able to find things easily, and eventually any bookmarks to the old shop will be redirected to the right page. The new checkout is working, which means that in simple cases you will be able to complete a purchase in the normal way.

Covid-19: Shop status

There are still many problems in the postal system, varying hugely from one country to another. More details on the front page, and at the checkout there will be more specific information about the destination country (sorry: not implemented for all countries yet!).

Chit-chat from Imaginatorium Shop

New year: about 'chit-chat'

Blog entry for January 2011

January 2011: Using the forum to make regular "blog" posts doesn't seem to have happened, so I'll return the chit-chat here. Last year was another of struggling with the ever-rising yen, and one effect of this was that the supply of new puzzles stagnated. We are now catching up, and when I have added the current pending pile we'll have over 1000 puzzles in stock. So please keep watching!

In addition to new images, old images in new sizes, and some discontinued puzzles returning, there are many new formats: Yanoman 2014 tiny pieces, new Epoch sizes, including 750 pieces, 420 panoramas, (both small pieces), and some challenging variants: double-sided 2016 puzzles, combination 1500+400 puzzles, and so on. I plan to take on some of these in the near future, and I'll post my own photos and comments on them.
