We invite you to read Roberta Shore's review on the following jigsaw puzzle. Since she has discovered the advantages of jigsaw puzzling, she has reviewed/journaled several that will be available on this website.
My (advancing) Newbie rating: Easy
The copy of this puzzle I put together was flawed. It had one broken piece and a few damaged pieces. The piece fit was so loose no two pieces would stay together. Loose fit seems to be a possible issue across brands. The previous Springbok puzzle I completed did not have any issues that ruined my puzzling experience. Springbok has an excellent reputation.
So, stuff happens. I want to recommend this puzzle to new puzzlers. Because it is an easy puzzle to complete, it would be a great introduction to random cut pieces, round puzzles, and the art of sorting.
Specific to this puzzle:
From there the construction was a breeze - it was equivalent to doing 23 little puzzles. As soon as the sorted labels were put together, they could be attached to the frame.
When I finished this bothersome puzzle and there were no missing pieces it still evoked a moment of pleasure to see it complete. And, it can be fun to do an easy puzzle; not every one has to be challenging and take days to complete, to enjoy the process. Because that is always the same — a mind clearing, calming activity. It’s a good thing!
My ratings: Quality C, Fun Factor B+
Note: Loose piece fit is second perhaps to missing piece, but it is a disappointment from beginning to end. This review and ratings have to be honest based on my experience with the box of puzzle pieces I put together. Please don’t be deterred.
