This was such a pleasure, especially after those King puzzles. As soon as I saw this puzzle, I knew I would love it, and I did! I like “vacationy” beach scenes in puzzles, although in real life I prefer to stay away from the sand – it goes everywhere and is very hard to get rid of.
For my puzzle challenge, this was #25, a puzzle with 1500 or more pieces.
This was a lot of fun! I remember complaining some time ago that there were too few puzzles with pop culture subjects available in Europe, but things have improved a lot lately. Especially Clementoni, but also Ravensburger have many puzzles with images from movies and TV-shows, and I’m loving it!
For my puzzle challenge, the shark in the middle makes this #21, a person or character I would not like to meet.
This was lovely to do, but again, there’s a piece missing. No mystery this time, I got this puzzle from a charity shop, and most of the puzzles from there have missing pieces.
The sun, as well as the outlines of the characters and the goal glow in the dark, but not enough to get a good photo of it. For the puzzle challenge, this will be #22, the puzzle has some kind of effect.
Another 750-piece puzzle with large pieces. This is a room that I would definitely feel right at home in, and I loved it as a puzzle. I recognize the puzzle on the table, it’s an actual Ravensburger puzzle with a greenhouse. I haven’t done it, although I remember it was a 500-piece puzzle, but the puzzle in the image has 1000 pieces.
For my puzzle challenge, this is #24, a puzzle that fits at least three points (my hobby, a book, and large pieces).
I’m already certain this will be one of my favourite puzzles of the year. There were lots of funny details and non-standard shaped pieces, and I loved doing a non-rectangular puzzle for a change. For the puzzle challenge I’m doing, this is #15, “a lighthouse”.
There were some great whimsies:
An octopus that likes ice cream!
There were lots of these pink little guys all over the puzzle.
The top. The birds all have little crowns, making them king fishers, I suppose.
An image from the 1940 Disney movie Fantasia. It was easier than I expected, but I would not like to do it as a 4000 piece puzzle in the Disney 40K monster. I bought this because I remember being fascinated by the bewitched brooms as a child, and that makes it #11 in the puzzle challenge I’m doing, “a puzzle that reminds you of your childhood / youth”.
This was a lovely puzzle, with my one of my favourite type of image: cakes and pastries. For the puzzle challenge I’m doing, this is #10, “a puzzle with large pieces”. The pieces were twice as big as normal, and the finished puzzle is 80 x 60 cm. I’ll probably be keeping this to do again.
The “pie chart” was my favourite part of the puzzle, but all of it was great, really.
This was a lovely little snack, I did it more or less in one sitting. Somehow, I always find painted cakes even more appealing in puzzles than photographs of actual cakes. This will be #26, a round puzzle, in the puzzle challenge I’m doing.
