Assembly.....

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.

Comments

I love an image that shares the twinkle of Christmas and clearly this one 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.
