How I love the wooden puzzles! Received this one new on my birthday (in October) and finished it a few days ago. My daughter wanted to do it with me, so our sittings were rather far apart, but productive with two heads and four hands working at once. It’s the second wooden puzzle I’ve ever done, and I’m still enthralled with the intricately shaped pieces and nice tactile experience. This one has really bright colors, too. We did notice that there are burn marks on the edges of some pieces- I wasn’t bothered by this on the front, you have to look really close to see it in the image. However once I flipped it over to view the back, it was really obvious. My daughter said she likes this artifact of the manufactuer’s process (not quite in those words).
Of course the most fun is all the “whimsey” pieces. There are pigs, dogs and cats (these two touching paws!)
a kangaroo and a rhino,
several parrots and butterflies,
rabbit, chicken, squirrel and many others-
even one shaped like the fox itself:
Here’s the assembly. Not always at the same angle, and the light did bounce off the tabletop annoyingly. For the last photo I slid it onto a piece of colored paper to admire.
