Get to know mchezo and our brands

Right from the start you may be wondering "what does Mchezo mean?"

To me, it means a lot.

Mchezo is the Swahili word for "game" or "to play." As the child of Missionaries, I spent most of my youth in East Africa. The experience shaped my worldview. As different as our varied cultures on earth can be, there is something that unites us. We all - men and women, adults and children - love to play . It engages our minds and frees our spirits from the concerns of the everyday world.

Jigsaw puzzles are especially good to train the young to feel united. A jigsaw isn't a competition. It's a complicated task that you can enjoy with your family or friends and do together and play together to cooperate and win the prize of finishing and seeing the beautiful completed artwork.

I hope you will love the play even more than the final product.
