Dora The Tank Engine: 9-Year-Old Combines Puzzles Cut From The Same Pattern (PHOTO)

Posted: Updated:

Dora, Caillou, Sesame, Thomas... Do your kids' favorite TV shows sometimes blend together in your mind? If so, this image of Dora The Tank Explorer is for you.

According to the post on Reddit, TactileIre's 9-year-old son was playing with two separate jigsaw puzzles when he discovered something he probably didn't expect: the pieces were cut to the same pattern, and therefore interchangeable.

Compared to some of the most complicated puzzles out there, of course, these two 60-piece jigsaws are child's play. But the 9-year-old's resourcefulness in combining them has found an appreciative audience online -- with one imgur commenter calling him "the Picasso of jigsaw puzzlers."

Since the puzzles feature every preschooler's heroes (Dora! Thomas!) the result is reminiscent of nothing more than a parent's brain on cartoon overload. Check it out for yourself below -- and click here to see the combined puzzles as an animated gif (if you dare).

One Redditor points out that Ms. Dora "has enough of a face on both puzzles for your brain to give her priority." If you're having trouble getting D-d-d-dora out of your mind and untangling the individual puzzles too, check out iownaredball's remix:

Hours after posting the 9-year-old's handiwork on Reddit, TactileIre thanked fellow Redditors for the enthusiastic response and wrote: "My boy is going to be so stoked with the comments and the photoshop work will blow his mind. I promise to post pics of his reaction when he's back with me."
