Many of us are currently stuck inside due to responsible social distancing. But finding ways to occupy time without going outside can be difficult. You may find yourself reverting back to childhood pastimes to de-stress and connect with a simpler time, and that includes doing puzzles.

These gradient puzzles are fantastically vibrant and terribly difficult. But we all love a challenge, don’t we? 

“Made from thick-stock art paper, you can assemble it over and over with nary a bent edge,” the product description reads. “The end result is so striking though, you might just want to frame it and proudly showcase your triumph.”

You can buy one 1,000-piece puzzle in a pink to yellow gradient, or two 500-piece puzzles. One set includes a green to yellow gradient and a red to yellow gradient, while the other includes a black to white gradient and a blue to green gradient. 

If there was ever a time to absolutely torture yourself with a nearly impossible puzzle, it’s now. Plus, you have to admit, they do look pretty cool.
