The Peanuts Multi Shaped puzzle was a must have! What's not to like about Peanuts, Charlie Brown and Snoopy puzzles?
Peanuts jigsaw puzzles are the best ever! Amazon Link
We did our Christmas theme this year with the Cra-Z-Art Peanuts Multi-shaped puzzles.
It was a bit tricky to squeeze them all in the display area and still be able to identify them but they are all there in our delightful Christmas theme.
I love the Peanuts characters and the fun cartoon stories and movies. When I spotted this image, it became a must have. Fortunately for me, I have a contact at the Car-Z-art Company who happened to have one handy to send me immediately! You can imagine how pumped I was to receive a 'MUST HAVE' puzzle. My review starts with the following video and then comments with lots of photos.

So you can see that the backs of the puzzle pieces are colour coded. I simply sorted out the colours into piles and then assembled each individual puzzle. Some Puzzlers would not be in agreement with that process but I am all for it - work smarter not harder! I am ok if I complete this puzzle in 2 hours. I wanted to see these little Peanut people put together so I could admire them. They go together quite easily.
I have assembled a few Cra-Z-Art jigsaw puzzles and similar mini puzzles as listed below. Even though the puzzles are sold by the USA Company, they are cut in China. The sealed box is good and solid with the pieces sealed inside a bag along with a very nice size poster. The pieces are a medium+ quality with perfect colours. The cut was pretty good because I could 'very carefully' pick up the assembled individual shaped puzzles.
Now since I want to be able to admire these little shaped characters, I decided to integrate them into a Halloween theme to go along with my other USAopoly jigsaw puzzle, "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" (Size: 19 "x19". 500 pieces. Artist: Charles Schulz).
I have been known to make these themes in the past so I had all the extras as seen in the following images and the video above. I enjoy getting up every morning and seeing my favourite characters amidst the little Halloween details I have gathered over the years. My most favourite detail is the hanging witch seen clearly in the immediate image below.
I am a HUGE Peanuts fan. One of the Jigsaw Puzzle Connections Facebook Group members sent me The Great Pumpkin Collectors Edition in a tin can case, the jigsaw puzzle - Dog of 1000 Faces and the little Red Baron roller toy all in kindness and generosity.
You can see below that I have completed The Great Pumpkin which is a shaped puzzle. I have traced-cut and mounted it onto to foam board and sealed it with clear (window-shrink) plastic to seal it. It is 500 pieces and 19 x 19".
My sister located Snoopy at the piano and it plays a Christmas tune and the Buffalo Games Photomosaic - Joe Cool is one of my most favourite finds at a Thrift store. So FUN!!!
I (impulsively) purchased the 3000 pieces Peanuts Gang because it is not available very often in Canada. Then I spotted the 500 piece Multi Shaped Peanuts puzzle and immediately searched for it in Canada. Of course it was not available so I connected with my contact over at RoseArt (a.k.a. Car-Z-Art) Wendy to ask her where I might get one in Canada and she replied "Not likely to happen" but she had one right there and would send it to me immediately - which she did!
My Sister gifted me the above Snoopy/piano
