Size: 24

Isn't this the most delightful Yuletime Ride jigsaw puzzle you ever saw?  The Artist  Sandra Kuck sure captured an essence of Christmas cheer here. The era of those children reminds me of the school books we learned how to read with. Not only that, the vibrant colour combinations of the left-over Fall colours against the rich green coloured tree and the colours of the children's clothes.

Yuletime Ride jigsaw puzzle 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. 

Board ALERT! The size of this puzzle is larger than most of the 20x30" range puzzles - I  had to get the bigger board to accommodate the 24x30" size. 

I started with the girl pulling the tree, that being her dark coat and blond hair. I continued to build around the other children, the house in the background and the bright parts of the tree.

I wrestled with the autumn leaves and trees using both the image and shapes of the pieces to determine what went where!

Yuletime Ride jigsaw puzzle Comments...

The smooth finish is always nice on these puzzles. The random cut pieces are thick and sturdy to the point where you can lift the entire puzzle when completed but I never recommend doing that to any puzzle.

I especially enjoyed this image because these children remind me of the books I learned to read with as a very young child. I was not particularly fond of doing the trees. 

I highly recommend this jigsaw puzzle but be prepared for a larger board.

It may be difficult to locate this older  Yuletime Ride jigsaw puzzle by Springbok image but it comes highly recommended if you do. I have also had the pleasure of assembling the Lazy Creek jigsaw puzzle by Springbok titled, Lazy Creek Country Store by Artist Dona Gelsinger. There are 1000 pieces: 1000 and the Size is 24" x 30" or 61cm x 76.2cm.
