Hershey’s Moments

Hershey’s Moments – MasterPieces – 1000 pieces

A challenging puzzle with a few quality issues that were annoying – still, as my mother used to tell me, it’s better than a sharp stick in the eye. 😉

The fit was spongy on this one, and there were quite a few pieces with bent corners and image lift. In addition, the poster that came with it did NOT show the complete puzzle – that one really threw me for a loop! Not the best MasterPieces puzzles I’ve done, in fact I was pretty disappointed with this one. But no manufacturer is perfect and there have been plenty of their puzzles that were extremely enjoyable and entertaining.

In addition to the problems mentioned above, you can see on the right side of the puzzle that there was an extra piece. Not good for whomever received the puzzle boxed up just before mine. My puzzle was complete, but I had someone else’s missing piece. Not good.

I was looking forward to this section, and thought it would be the most fun to assemble. It was fun, but interestingly another section was the most enjoyable for me….

Surprisingly, even to myself, this was my favorite section. Perhaps because it wasn’t too simple and I got to sit and look at the pieces for a bit figuring out the solution. Whatever the reason it was REALLY fun for me.

You can see here that not only does the poster cut off the bottom of the image, it also cuts off about half of the right side. What is the purpose of a poster that doesn’t show you the whole damn puzzle?

Do better puzzle companies. We deserve good quality puzzles and attention to detail.

  1. Good grief! I’m frustrated for you too! What’s the point of including a poster if it doesn’t show the whole puzzle image?!

    Very cool most chocolate-candy themed collage-style image. Bummer about the quality issues 😦

    I’ve had 2 puzzles that each had an extra piece and 1 puzzle that was missing a piece and I know it wasn’t me as I’m extremely careful when I take it out of the bags – the pieces go on a board with edges. You’re right, mistakes can happen but still frustrating as they’re not cheap.

    It’s a bit frustrating when the picture is bigger than the puzzle, but less than an incomplete picture! Or, how about when the only large picture has an ad on part of it and the only complete picture is a miniature on the side of the box? In the end, we do the puzzle and make the most of it.
