Santa Surprise Jigsaw Puzzle

The Santa Surprise jigsaw puzzle is crazy with all these tiny Santas that looks so similar. I am grateful it was only 150 pieces. It was quite handy to be this size so I could do it on my lap and it would make a terrific travel puzzle too.

Santa Surprise Jigsaw Puzzle Assembly.....

I did not do my usual sorting routine with this one. All the images look quite the same so no use in sorting, just pull out the border pieces with the flat edges.The edge pieces when together fairly easily and then I laid out the rest of the pieces according to shapes.

In my one work-in-progress below you can see I am working the pieces according to the poster that is included due to all the similar Santas.

To the right you can see how the Santas all look similar and also the quality of the puzzle pieces which fit very nicely together.

There's a lot of speckled eyes and the black boots with the black mittens adds to the test. So many red santa suits against brown circles added to the degree of difficulty. The falling blue or white snow flakes were the best hint because they could be established into position on the board as did some of the presents.

Images that are repetitive like this do tend to be tricky.

This Santa Surprise jigsaw puzzle was made in Poland and you can see both sides of the poster below where there are 20 discrepancies between the two. The images below are the front and back of the image so they do provide the answers circled in pink.
