Noah’s Gathering – Cobble Hill – 400 pieces

This is a Cobble Hill family puzzle which contains pieces of three different sizes. From small kids to adults, everyone of every skill level can work together to assemble it. It’s an excellent idea and I think it makes for great fun even if you’re putting the puzzle together by yourself. 🙂

This brand is excellent quality in my opinion, though sometimes the fit can be a little loose. The pieces are thick, linen-coated, and the fit on this puzzle was very good. I will say for a puzzle aimed at the whole family this image was a bit dark in color which made it a bit of a challenge at times, especially when working on the middle. Challenge isn’t a bad thing though, it keeps us interested and on our toes!

Noah’s Ark is a very popular puzzle subject, I think I’ve done at least 7 or 8 Noah’s Ark themed puzzles in the last year or so, maybe more – from 300 pieces all the way up to 2000! They’re all so different and it’s interesting to see the artist’s take on the subject. My favorite was a 300 piece Pomegranate by Jenny Tylden-Wright, it’s so interesting and different and I adore the image; click here to see her beautiful Noah’s Ark.

Have you tried a family puzzle? Many different puzzle manufacturers have made or are making them now. I think they’re great fun, and if you have younger children it’s a wonderful way to spend time together and hopefully get them interested in puzzling.
