Assembly

First thing - I did not assemble this one. It has been put to the test as a first-time user of Cobble Hill Puzzles by my adult daughter and her Man. You should know they are Gen-X and the idea of doing puzzles for all the years I have been doing them, to both of them, puzzles never appealed to them. Also being new to puzzling, they had a puzzle spill and seemed to have lost 1 piece even though we did look for it....maybe it will show up someday.....Newbies.... tsk, tsk :( 

They actually started a different puzzle first and they experienced the same negative process as they did many years ago as teenagers.....the pieces were ribbon cut and pieces fit into more than one place....I encouraged them to try a different puzzle. They picked the Frog Business upon my few suggestions for great colors and random cuts. 

As you can see above, they did not really sort the pieces as sorting pieces (to them and many other puzzlers) is boring. Instead they opted out for picking through the boxes for the colors they were assembling and just laying them out.

They also thought they might work from the bottom to the top but soon abandoned that idea once they seen that eliminating colors was the better direction in this puzzle's case. The photos above show how they progressed.

The above photos share the great quality and random cut on Cobble Hills Puzzles and is exactly what sold this Gen-X couple to have a renewed look at puzzles. Here's some of the comments I got on their feedback;

  • It's very mindful to do puzzles 
  • This was an enjoyable image to assemble
  • The random cut pieces made a huge difference for easier assembly
  • The feel of the matte finish was impressive
  • It's good to be puzzling rather than watching TV
  • We enjoy coffee and puzzling to start our day
  • We will certainly do another one

This is the first 1000 piece puzzle they have assembled since childhood and now it seems they are still willing to puzzle more puzzles - truly a good sign here. SO many thanks to Cobble Hills Puzzles for getting my daughter into puzzling as it is hoped that she will continue to share my hobby during her spare time going forward.
