My puzzle pal Penny bought this collection for herself this past week, and when she sent me a text showing a picture of the box I just fell in love. My faithful tens of readers know that I’m not a huge fan of Christmas puzzles, but these are all only 100 pieces and the images (most of them) made me smile. I can’t tell you the exact reasons why, but I just had to have these. So the next day I enlisted my ever patient father to drive me to the store to find this box – and find it we did!
The image of each day’s puzzle is shown on the box both opposite the numbers and also through the numbers themselves – I like that! You can see that the cute Santa image for day one is shown completely on the left, and his little face is peeking through the number 1 on the right.
Cute Santa was assembling in bed this morning on a cookie sheet. These are Ceaco puzzles, and the quality is good/fair. The fit is somewhat loose but not too much so, and the pieces are a good thickness. Santa went together pretty quickly, and he was lots of fun to assemble. I’m giving him four out of five on the Mrs. Claus advent calendar scale – mostly for cuteness!
There’s just something about these puzzles, I’m looking forward to each and every one. It’s weird for me to say that, as I am just not a fan of the usual Christmas images, but this collection makes me smile. I don’t know if I want to post only 100 piece puzzles here every day until Christmas (and I have yet to make a decision), but no matter what you’ll be seeing all of them eventually.
