Many months ago I received a gift card for my birthday, and I can’t believe I waited this long to do the puzzle I picked out. It’s a wooden one, with “whimsy” shapes in the figure of animals and plants, and a shaped outline- both of which make this difficult! Don’t be fooled by the low piece count- it was a challenge! and a delightful one. I really really like wooden puzzles with all the crazy, wonky shapes. They’re so fun, and make your brain think and visualize things in a very different way.
But they’re expensive so this is only the third one I’ve done, and it was likewise a gift (thank you, Mom!).
I thought the animals shapes were very well defined and charming, on this one. My favorites are the two with babies nestled on the mother: sloth and koala.
Some of them will stand up on edge, which only invites making little tableaus.
Assembly. At the end I slid the puzzle onto a black board to admire for a while, and it looks quite striking.
I’d be tempted to paint the animal-shaped ones and put them on your bookshelf!
That would be great. But they must stay with the puzzle!
