A combination of textures and genres — coupled with the ordinary combined with the not so ordinary — serve as the basis of Different Puzzles, a puzzle brand that offers products that, um, significantly diverge from the gardenscape puzzles found at your grandparents’ house. With an eccentric selection of 500- and/or 1,000-piece offerings, the puzzle brand’s finished, assembled puzzles yield artsy, surrealist results.

Don’t expect flower fields, still life of fruit, or scenic landscapes here. Instead, there is a massive lobster getting its portrait done, some wildlife putting on a concert in an unorthodox setting, and farm animals mingling during a (literal) cocktail party, among other unconventional but delightful scenes. The 500-piece sets retail at $26 each, while the 1,000-piece sets retail a bit more at $36 each. Check out some of the puzzles below.
