Ministeck is a puzzle which everyone can enjoy. It is a toy for both young and old. This toy was invented 1965 in Germany by Hetmut Gottwald and it is still popular all over the world. Nowadays you can download a program to make your own pattern, like for example your own picture.
Ministeck is like doing a cross-stitch. The differences are that you use a plastic plate and not a cloth, not threads but plastic mosaic pieces, you don't need a needle but only your hands. But they both use a pattern.
There is also a mini-variety of Ministeck and it is called Pixelhobby. They use both plastic mosaic pieces, but the only difference is the shape. Ministeck has different shapes, while Pixelhobby has only one shape. With Pixelhobby you use mini squared-plastic mosaic pieces.
|You can buy the plate in different sizes...|
|...also the same with the Pixelhobby.|
If I have to choose between the two. I like to do more the the Pixelhobby. Because its mosaic pieces are finer than the Ministeck. See what I have made!
They are both fun to do in leisure hours especially this cold season! I am looking forward to make a bigger one next time!
