Man, this puzzle was so much fun! It was truly over too quickly, even though I put the box away to make it last a little longer. I would love to have this in a much larger piece count, either 1000 or 2000 pieces. It would be heavenly to assemble this again with more pieces. 💗
It’s no secret that Aimee Stewart is my favorite jigsaw puzzle artist, and this puzzle is a perfect example of why that is. The use of colors is brilliant, and the overall feeling of this image just makes you smile. I adore it, and I’m so pleased to have been able to assemble it.
Ah, the memories of the roller rink when I was in middle school and junior high. I always hated it when they called for a “backwards” or “reverse” skate, because I was never good enough on roller skates to figure out how to skate backwards without broken limbs or a cracked skull – or causing mass casualties within the people skating around me. We lived on a dirt road, with a dirt driveway, there was no place for me to practice; and to be fair, I also was a major klutz as a child.
Mom would be upset with me if I didn’t share this rollerskating story from my youth; she loved to tell this story about raising a wild child like me, so here goes. I broke my foot in 5th grade and spent several months in a cast. My class had a field trip planned for the local roller rink, of course while I was still in a cast. Even though I was on crutches (no walking cast for me), I decided that shouldn’t keep me from having a good time, so I got one skate and used my broken foot to Fred Flintstone myself around the rink – I used my cast to push myself forward. Sheesh. With that kind of ridiculous decision making it’s a miracle that I survived my youth. Honestly.
The quality of this Buffalo puzzle was exceptional – from the thick chipboard to the fit and image reproduction. When the fit is exceptional I always like to stand them up, for some reason I can’t explain it makes me very, very happy.
In general, this puzzle made me very, very happy on every level. My only complaint was that it is only available in a 300 piece puzzle and no larger piece counts. Please Buffalo, hear our plea; give us this puzzle in 1000 or 2000 pieces – we will absolutely buy it. In fact it will be a bestseller. I guarantee it.
