Alice in Wonderland – Potter Style – 500 pieces

New company for me, Potter Style. I love the artwork but the pieces – yikes. 😐

This puzzle comes in a “book box”, very nice packaging with the full image on the inside of the lid (not easy to set up and use for reference). If  the chipboard were a bit thicker it would be a very nice puzzle. As it is, the pieces are about the thinnest I’ve seen and they did not fit together well.

I’m not sure where we got this one, I think it was most likely purchased new. Mom LOVES interesting packages! I’d be interested to find another one in the thrift store perhaps to compare the quality – maybe I got a bad one that made it through quality control? You never know.

The artwork is very interesting though, and the finished puzzle is quite striking. Might be nice to glue and frame for a Lewis Carroll or Alice in Wonderland fan.

    Potter Style is part of the Clarkson Potter imprint which is part of the Crown Publishing Group — a book publisher with lots of imprints. Not sure if Potter Style exists anymore, either way, there definitely aren’t any new Potter Style jigsaw puzzles in the stores. (Not surprised that the quality was bad. This definitely can happen when a company that doesn’t usually make whatever item (in this case, puzzles) decides to dip their toe in the market and try to profit from a current trend/craze.)
