Review: Rooster Express

Rooster Express by Charles Wysocki – Milton Bradley – 300 pieces

I love a Wysocki image that isn’t the norm, ones that maybe only have one house instead of many; or ones that feature something different, like this rooster. This puzzle is the perfect example of that.

Most puzzles by Charles Wysocki we’ve done are produced by Buffalo Games, every once in a while I come across one from another manufacturer. This beauty is made by Milton Bradley. The quality is very good; with thick pieces, excellent image reproduction, and a beautiful fit. It was a joy to assemble!

I assembled it a little differently than usual, I started from the top and put together the sky, buildings, and fields. Then I went to the bottom and assembled the road, wagon, and rooster. After that all that was left was the grass, which didn’t take much time at all. It was over too quickly! It was more fun than I thought it would be, those are my favorite types of puzzles. 🙂

  1. Hi Stacey. This one is really cute. How are you feeling? Any better? I sure hope so. I know the last thing I saw was you had been bedridden for awhile. Certainly hoping that has improved for you. Haven’t seen a post about a puzzle posse session either so I’m guessing you haven’t been up to that either.

    I pray for you to feel better soon and get back to your normal routine with Momma in tow! 🙂

    1. Sorry to say I’m not feeling better, but I’m still trying to puzzle when I can. No puzzle posse sessions either, but maybe soon we’ll be able to get together.

      Thanks so much for your prayers and good thoughts Penny, they’re very much appreciated! 🙂
