Winter in the City

Winter in the City by Jim Mitchell – Wentworth Wooden Puzzles – 40 pieces

I thought I’d start off “Christmas in July” on the blog with a Wentworth micro puzzle. I’m not that much of a fan of Christmas puzzles, most of the images seem so similar, and they’re just not my taste. I do love a wooden puzzle though, and if the puzzle is well made I could assemble just about any image. 😉

Winter in the City was great fun to assemble, I love grabbing one of Wentworth’s micro puzzles and spending a few minutes putting together such a wonderfully crafted and intricate puzzle. The cut looks simple, but they are more difficult than they seem; it’s so interesting to me that while most of the pieces are “average” looking, they’re more of a challenge than you might think. I love it!

The whimsy pieces are very “Christmasy” – Santa, a wreath, a snowman, an ornament, and an angel. The pieces are so detailed! Each of the regular micro puzzles has 5 whimsies, one in each corner and one in the center; unless it’s one with an extra difficult cut that has repetitive or tessellating pieces. I have a few of these extra difficult ones for this month, they’re pretty darn fun too!

All of the puzzles this month won’t be Christmas themed, but there will be quite a few of them. If you’re a fan, enjoy! If you’re not, there will be plenty of regular images too; as long as I can assemble enough to keep up! 🎄
