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 not to be completed at the beginning this time due to the extra amount of whites - it would have to wait till the end.

Instead, I started with Papa Smurf, the 'Smurf' Sign, the news-stand and the red/white 'housing'. 

I then decided to organize the Smurfs according to colors and eventually got to the text or names of the Smurfs. .... the Artist's signature at the bottom was in a different position and the block image on the bottom right covered the corner area. I seen a smaller image on the back of the box but I had to use the magnifying glass to see the image...still, small deterrents that need a mention.  

Comments

I love the way this one looks when completed. It's clean, organized and colorful. It may have added some extra tricky areas with the white edges and white/blue pieces, but it was not enough to discourage the experience.

The following images share nice closeups to see the random cut pieces, the crisp and colorful characters and even the blue printing is readable.

Smurf trivia..... "The Smurfs are all one family with 1 father and 99 kids. According to Spirou magazine N° 1354 from 1964, there are 100 Smurfs in total; this does not take into account later additions from the Smurfs films." Credit Wikipedia

This is one of 3 jigsaw puzzles I was offered to review for the Cobble Hill Puzzle Company. As with most of their jigsaw puzzles, I do highly recommend this one, if not for the extra challenge then just for the image of these cute little characters. 

The above jigsaw puzzle(s) have been added to my Puzzle Hobby Tracker 

I am in the process of recording all my past jigsaw puzzles that I still have for my walls and all my current puzzles.

Then I have the TO DO list that I am adding from my collection.
