Looking for other puzzles? We can now order any currently available puzzles, and this page is here to help you find them in the manufacturers' online catalogs. Note: by default, the external links on this page open in the same window.
Please use the following form, giving as much information as you can: ideally a manufacturer name and catalog number, or a link to the web page where you found a puzzle. Once we have identified a particular puzzle you want, it should not normally take more than two or three weeks to obtain, often less.
- Ask about any puzzles at all - but please note that they do tend to go out of production after a few years, so if it's something you saw in Hong Kong ten years ago, I'm afraid there is usually no chance of finding it now.
- We have no control at all over the manufacturers' websites, which may change at any time, and sometimes break our links into them. Please let me know if something isn't working.
- See the Japanese puzzle manufacturers page for more general info - historical notes and so on.
Main puzzle links on the Apollo website now redirect to Epoch, but other Apollo products, including children's puzzles and block puzzles remain on the website here: http://www.apollo-sha.co.jp/
There is a large range of Educational toys: here is a list of the main links - you will need to experiment with clicking the coloured links at the bottom of the second level pages (which are all images, so machine translation services are no help, unfortunately). Please ask if you are looking for specific children's puzzles, for example for learning hiragana or katakana.

The Artbox website is here: https://www.ensky.co.jp. There are now two index pages. The first, "Puzzle topics", has a list of all the characters appearing, unfortunately not in any obvious order (they are arranged in Japanese phonetic a-i-u-e-o order). The second, "Puzzle types", lists the different sizes of puzzles, and variations such as the "crystal" translucent puzzles. The following links lead to the first page of products for each character, with page navigation at the top and bottom if there is more than one page. Click the thumbnail for details.

The following links go directly to the puzzles for each topic or artist; these are mostly rather broad categories, and there may be many pages in the category. You can use the piece-count buttons at the top ("108 300 500 1000" etc.) to narrow down to the size you are interested in. There are 30 puzzles per display page, and the page navigation (at the bottom) allows you to move through the pages. (You can only move two pages at a time, so to get to page 7 of 7, the quickest way is via pages 3 and 5. The "Next" button (次へ) moves up one page, and the "Previous" button (前へ) moves back one page.

The Epoch catalog is large, and easy to navigate using the links below; the "Genre" links are index pages leading to the topics within them. Since Apollo became a part of the Epoch group in 2011, Apollo and Epoch brands have been progressively integrated, so there is now no practical difference.

The Road brand is produced by an elusive company called Kezuka, who have no website, and only produce new paper catalogs occasionally. They have a good range of scenic puzzles, generally of particularly high quality, plus Moomin Characters, and cartoon versions of: Heidi, Raccoon Rascal, Anne of Green Gables.
Please ask with any specific requests – meanwhile it may help to look at these scans of the 2006-2007 catalog "Character" puzzles, 300-2000 pieces:
Page 1 (300 pcs) - Page 2 (300/500 pcs) - Page 3 (950 panorama / 1000 pcs) - Page 4 (1000 pcs) - Page 5 (1000/2000 pcs)
NB This is the latest catalog we have, and not all of these are available. We will update when we can.
The Tenyo site is not easy to navigate. In almost all cases, there is no thumbnail index — so each of the following links leads to a page with a list of titles in Japanese, and you will need to click them one by one to see the puzzles. They are ordered by Japanese title, with different sizes mixed up together. The exception is the thumbnail list of new Disney puzzles which you may find useful: Latest Disney puzzles
The small numbers in parenthesis show the approximate number of puzzles in each list. (Note that these may be missing or out of date, and also many lists overlap.)
