There's a load of colour in this Santas Toy Shop jigsaw puzzle. Just a perfect delight for the Christmas Season! It is very nice to see all the vintage toys surrounding Santa and the children. I know I would be the one to pick out that old vintage car that sits at the top of the shelf above Santa. The big gum-ball machine looks pretty attractive too. I would likely pass on the teddy bear he is trying to give to the children.

I did my usual sorting routine with this one. I sorted the colors as best I could into piles then did an additional color sort as I laid all the pieces out onto the foam board. The border went together really well.
I started with the blue window area and wreath. I tried to work the white areas such as Santa and the horse head on the bottom right. I basically had to put little color areas together on the foam boards, then tie the sections into place.
The individual puzzle pieces seemed muted - such as, the children's hats were quite blurry but once they were in place it formed the hats very prettily. That happened in several areas of the image.
The following 4 images share some close up images of the puzzle piece quality and sizes which are great! Also you can see some of the cute Christmas details the Artist has included in the image.
I love an image that shares the twinkle of Christmas and clearly the Santas Toy Shop jigsaw puzzle has captured that essence as you can see in these close up photos above. The artwork by Simon Treadwell is very colorful and traditional making it totally attractive. The Santa's Toy Shop jigsaw puzzle comes highly recommended for Christmas entertainment.
I have also had the pleasure of assembling the shaped FX Schmid puzzle titled On The Wings Of An Eagle which is for a 500 piece puzzle pretty huge! The size is 23" x 38.5".
