I did my usual sorting routine.
Being a 500 piece puzzle I did not have to line these pieces up so perfectly due to the extra large size. It's been a while since I have done the extra large pieces so that was fun! The border went together fairly quickly so I started with the colored scarves first as my base to build the Snowmen.
Then I moved onto the Cardinal, carrots and branches. The colorful hues started to fall into place. Finally the greenery and background was filled in.
The matte finish is really nice on these puzzles as there is no glare to deal with. I was totally delighted with everything about this puzzle from the topic, the colours and the nice tight fit as I was able to pick the entire puzzle up a I picked it out for my review as one of Cobble Hill Puzzle Company 2020 New releases.
I highly recommend this jigsaw puzzle but be prepared - it's addictive. So once you start you will just want to keep going until it's completed and I can easily give this one the highest compliment from a puzzler. The perfect puzzle experience!
Being the extra large pieces, I can see this puzzle being perfect for a family Christmas activity. I have assembled other puzzles by this artist however, the 'colouring book' effect in this artwork by Janet Stever is as attractive as the Snowmen. The children would really enjoy building the Snowmen, the adults can help with the minor tricky branches and the topic is perfect for the Christmas season. The following photos shares a closeup of all the snowmen.
