Mid Century Modern Puzzle


The Mid Century Modern Puzzle is one of my first reviews for the Hennessy jigsaw puzzle brand. I was pleasantly surprised at this very nice and clean product that is quite comparable to the other major brands.

Mid Century Modern Puzzle Assembly

I did my usual sorting routine.

  1. Sorting to locate all  the outside border pieces, while....
  2. Placing the pieces into the 'general-color' piles. 
  3. Then I carried on with a second round of sorting (similar colors sorted by shades/patterns) while placing the pieces flat out on the poster boards. 

The border was tricky too which I didn't think would be the case at all. Sometimes these images fool us.

I did manage to get them straightened correctly a short time after the image was taken.  

As you can see some of the odd random cuts on the Mid Century Modern Puzzle which are unique but not uncommon these days with the current puzzles. 

After I wrestled with the border you can see I started with some of the outside border areas next. I then decided to work on many of the different smaller details. Because the image was sectioned off like a collage I treated it like several little mini puzzles. 

I was actually surprised that the bottom home where the blue car 'lives' was the trickiest area - it was the trees, shrubbery, grass and both roofs that I kept going back to again and again.

Mid Century Modern Puzzle Comments

As I mentioned above, Mid Century Modern Puzzle was like doing several little mini puzzle images but it sure was nice seeing the images form and then discovering little details like ornaments and dishes. 

It also came with the Flyer inserted in the box which shares how they assist with Charitable donations or will help to assist with raising funds which is always cool......

Hennessy jigsaw puzzles are just as good quality as any of the other major brands for an overall experience. They attach the idea that each puzzle image should tell a story.  That said, if you are wondering if you would like to try one of their products then I recommend yes, you will not be disappointed. 

I have also had the pleasure of assembling the Hennessy World Map and Retro Space Adventures
