Higgledy-Piggledy House by Colin Thompson – Ravensburger – 1000 pieces

I started this puzzle in the evening at 9 pm, and before 4 pm the next day it was finished! This is another one of those puzzles that is just too much fun to do. 😎

Colin Thompson’s artwork is great for puzzling, there is always something interesting that you didn’t really notice at first, but right there in the room is a whole other house or a doorway that leads to who knows where. Even the most common looking scene has interesting things in it that you don’t notice right away, it’s always entertaining. And this image is almost like there are 12 smaller puzzles to assemble, what could be more fun?

I’ve enjoyed assembling some of his other cupboard puzzles by Ravensburger, and sometimes there is almost too much going on for my taste – it gets a little too crowded with things. (just my opinion, of course). But this puzzle has just the right amount of crowded space balanced out with some more plain areas . I thought it was the perfect combination!

Each room in the Higgledy-Piggledy House has different wallpaper or paint color, so you start there and before you know it the whole darn house is finished. At least that’s how it was for me. Excellent Ravensburger quality as usual, I can’t recommend this puzzle enough!
