This is part one of five – unlike most of the other sets, there are 15 small puzzles here instead of only 12. Another difference is that, unlike most of the other sets, these have quite a variation in sizes. You can see in the picture above that the middle bird is much smaller than the one on it’s right. In some ways that makes them a little more interesting to assemble, as you don’t get used to the usual shape and size when putting them together. Some seem bland in color and some are striking; but I enjoyed each assembly anyway, regardless of the color.
This is an older set, the ones with the more slippery backing, and also they’re branded as both Lafayette Puzzle Factory and Cra-Z-Art. The quality is good, with a nice variety of piece shapes and a good fit. I highly recommend giving one of these sets a try, I for one absolutely adore them. (As I’m sure you can tell because I’m having such a good time that I keep acquiring more sets and assembling them. Hope you guys aren’t sick of these puzzles yet, because there’s a lot more where they came from! 😉 )
I wish I knew more about birds, there isn’t much I can tell you about this species of bird without doing research (which I do not wish to do, sorry). The colors on the wings are lovely though! Making up bios about all of these birds isn’t something I”m going to do this time; they seem to have less personality than the unicorns did. I suppose if I were a “bird person” I might feel differently – but a bird person I am not.
But since the box tells me the names of each of the species, I feel as though I can at the very least name them. So……since this bird somehow seems masculine to me I’m naming him Pasquale the Painted Bunting. He’s French. 🗼
I admit to having a juvenile mind and grinning – a bit of a wicked smile – at finding out the name of this bird. Titmouse. Ha. Titmouse. *giggle*
This species is a bit muted in color, and seems small, but I’m going to (in my mind) give it a BIG personality. When you’re little and you blend in you’ve got to make yourself known. Therefore, I’m giving this little one a very big name. Talayah the Tufted Titmouse. She takes NO GUFF!
This is Alan the American Robin. He’s a bit boring and he looks a little cranky, but he does have lovely coloring on his breast.
Sorry about the tardiness of this post, I have no excuse other than I was feeling lazy today and just couldn’t muster the energy to sit in front of the computer and type up this post. I’m way behind on adding the puzzles I’ve already done to my queue, and it starts to get overwhelming to think about. Just a bad day I guess. I’ll try to do better.
