MasterPieces Signs 3 New Licenses

New licensed puzzles are incoming from MasterPieces.

MasterPieces has announced three new licensing agreements and the timelines for product availability in each new line.

Signing agreements with The U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service for the Smokey Bear property, outdoor lifestyle brand, Mossy Oak and The U.S. Department of Defense for the U.S. Navy license, MasterPieces has several new puzzles set to arrive this summer.

“We are passionate about building a well-rounded and diverse product line for our consumers to have all of the variety and choices they desire,” says David Rolls, president and founder, MasterPieces. “Now celebrating our 25th year in business, we are so proud of our robust product offerings that feature some of the most beloved and uniquely appropriate properties and characters for puzzles, games and crafts.”

This month, the first items to be available for consumers are a MasterPieces U.S. Navy 1000-piece puzzle and two 1000-piece Mossy Oak branded puzzles.

As a longtime license of the U.S. Department of Defense for the U.S. Army property, MasterPieces now adds the U.S. Navy to its puzzle and game line. The initial U.S. Navy puzzle is a 1000-piece ocean scene puzzle flooded with Navy emblems and seals.

The Mossy Oak puzzle line begins with two different 1000-piece puzzles featuring overlays of wildlife and patriotic graphics that are sure to be a challenge for puzzle enthusiasts.

MasterPieces will offer its new puzzles featuring Smokey Bear in July of 2021. A 550-piece, 100-piece and a 4-pack 100-piece puzzle begin the collection, featuring the famous wildfire prevention spokescharacter. 

The new licensed lines now join other new 2021 debut licensed lines for “Sesame Street,” “The Elf on the Shelf” and “The Farmer’s Almanac.”
