New Zealand made and founded some 15 years ago, The Wooden Rainbow is a small business based in Northland that handcrafts custom wooden name puzzles and education puzzles to help growing Kiwis learn through play. All of our puzzles are made to order, designed and made here in New Zealand.



As our puzzles are made to order unfortunately we cannot accept returns unless it is a faulty product. Please be aware that due to the nature of wood being a natural product, wood tone and wood grain can differ between each product. As our products are hand crafted and hand painted no puzzle will be the exact same as another. Colours may appear different across different monitors due to colour reproduction and colour calibration.



As our puzzles are made to order they can take up to 21 days to create if we are receiving large quantities of orders at that time. and then up to 7 days for shipping. If you need your puzzle by a certain date please enquire for rush orders and current turn around time. If ordering for Christmas please ensure you do so early and take note of the cut off order dates to beat the Christmas rush and receive your puzzle on time.



Shipping is available all over New Zealand and cost is dependant on urban or rural delivery. Within New Zealand this can take up to 7 working days once you're puzzle has been made due to postal service turn around times. Please allow more time for rural addresses. Overnight delivery is available at an additional cost however we cannot guarantee that your puzzle will arrive overnight to rural addresses.

Please get in touch regarding a quote for international shipping.



Once your puzzle is ready we will send a shipping confirmation email that lets you know your tracking number and the company that your parcel is with so that you can keep an eye on when it is due to arrive.

Trouble Shooting Tip: If your parcel is sent with Post Haste, the tracking number provided is the barcode which you can track here on their website.



As we have done our best to keep our products as affordable as possible already unfortunately we cannot offer additional discounts for bulk ordering. We do however love to create new puzzles for childcare centres all over New Zealand so please do get in touch if you have an idea, animal or educational puzzle request that we do not already have available and we will see what we can come up with to add to our collection for you.



We absolutely love to embrace Te Reo Māori & other languages in our puzzles and are always up for creating a new puzzle with words or phrases.



Our puzzles are made-to-order hand made and hand painted puzzles. We make them from quality hard wearing plywood with a hard wood based, water based paints and sealer. As every puzzle is hand made and cut out individually no puzzle will be exactly the same but we do our absolute best to ensure we deliver a quality keepsake product.



The line "a puppy ate my puzzle piece" is a pretty common occurrence so if you do find that you have lost a puzzle piece or have had part of your puzzle damaged just get in touch for a quote to replace or repair your puzzle and we will see what we can do.



Once you have chosen the design and pattern option you like from the shop you will be able to provide the name you would like on your puzzle before adding your chosen design to your shopping cart. At this time you will be able to choose any options such as number of letters, the symbol, colour pattern or peg options that may be available on that design. When completing your order through the cart let us know when your puzzle is needed by and simply follow the on screen instructions to complete your purchase.

If the puzzle you have chosen does not go up to the number of letters you require for your name, you would like it in another colour or colour scheme than we have listed or you want to know if we can make it but with another picture please get in touch with our design team for a new puzzle quote.
