16. Puzzle Huddle
If you’re a parent, you already know the struggle of entertaining your kids on cold, rainy, or snowy days when they can’t play outside. This is why there has been a huge resurgence in the popularity of puzzles in 2020. Similar to dolls, there hasn’t been very much representation in characters we see in puzzles that are available at stores. Puzzle Huddle features cartoons of black children growing up to become any number of career aspirations.
The company was founded by Matthew and Marnel, who are parents to 3 kids. They started creating the puzzles to encourage their own kids to be whoever they wanted to be when they grew up, and the message can be spread to children everywhere. This was one of the items featured as Oprah’s Favorite Things. So if you’re looking to buy from Amazon Prime, the only two puzzles available for 2-day shipping are the firefighter and scientist. If you’re looking for a puzzle featuring your child’s dream career, the main Puzzle Huddle website has a much larger catalogue to choose from.
