If you’ve run out of Netflix shows to watch while quarantining amid the coronavirus pandemic and need something to pass the time, Kodak has a solution in the form of the “world’s largest puzzle”.

The puzzle in question, which, when completed shows 27 “wonders from around the world,” is made up of 51,300 pieces and features images shot by professional photographers.

“Celebrating the heritage of Kodak and beautiful photography,” the description of the gigantic puzzle on the camera company’s website reads. “Each photo was initially taken by a professional photographer, then digitally enhanced and printed in high quality. You'll see the quality in every piece.”

According to the description, the puzzle includes wonders such as the Great Wall of China, the Colosseum, the Statue of Liberty and New York City skyline, and the Taj Mahal.

To make the process slightly less daunting, the puzzle comes split into 27 separately packaged puzzles - which then interlock to become “one giant puzzle”.

"What a sense of accomplishment you’ll have knowing that you’ve completed one of the World’s Largest Puzzles for sale," the company states.

However, those up for the challenge need to consider space, as the jigsaw is 28.5ft by 6.25ft when finished.

The price is also another factor to consider, as the puzzle costs $409.99 on Amazon, while Kodak’s website suggests a retail price of $599.99.

Despite the sheer volume and cost, it seems the jigsaw is in high demand, as there are currently only 16 left in stock on Amazon, where the puzzle has 3-and-a-half stars.

“This is keeping me busy,” one reviewer wrote.

On social media, the world’s largest puzzle also has people intrigued, with some expressing their determination in purchasing the activity.

“Mark my words, if I somehow convince my wife that the world's largest puzzle by @Kodak is a perfect fit for our long corridor, I’m buying it,” one person tweeted.
