Puzzleworld by Kozyndan – Heye – 1000 pieces

In the mood for a puzzle that’s a bit of a challenge? Puzzleworld! I thought this puzzle would be interesting and fun, and it was – but I had no idea how challenging it would be! All the puzzle shapes obscuring other puzzle shapes, wow.  It was a challenge but I did it. 🙂

This image caught my eye while I was putting together an order and needed to be sure I was spending enough money to get free shipping. Heye quality is excellent and the image was so different and compelling that I added it to my shopping cart without much thought at all. Super entertaining purchase!

It took me 4 or 5 days to finish this one, a bit longer than normal for a 1000 piece puzzle, but not too much. The background of puzzle shapes makes for an interesting assembly and makes you pay attention. I enjoyed it very much and was proud of myself when I finished it! You can see especially in the top right corner the puzzle shapes in the background, it looks like a jumble of squiggly lines – it’ll definitely keep you on your toes.

Heye puzzles have great quality in my experience, although I think this particular puzzle may have been at the end of a run. The piece shapes are a bit more obvious than normal (although with this image that actually seems pretty cool) and several pieces were not cut all the way through. It didn’t diminish my enjoyment of the puzzle much, and I’ve had enough experience with this brand to know that it’s not the norm. They still have an excellent catalog, the pieces are sturdy with a nice variety of piece shapes, they fit together well and have beautiful image reproduction. It’s gonna take more than one slightly sub-par puzzle to make me change my mind about this brand – I’m a fan!
