Kittens in the Kitchen

To be honest, I didn’t even notice there were cats in this puzzle until I started assembling it! I only saw the kitchen as a whole when I looked at the box, the kittens didn’t even register – of course I didn’t see the name of the puzzle either – Kittens in the Kitchen. I guess I don’t get the Captain Observation award for the day, huh?

I love the sign, I only wish I had a dining room to put it in. The view out the window is very pretty and was lots of fun to put together. 🙂 Unfortunately there were 2 missing pieces, but that didn’t make it any less fun to put together – at least not for me.

This was a thrift store puzzle, and seems to have been well loved before it was donated. Some of the pieces were bent and the finished puzzle didn’t lay completely flat. It’s difficult to say whether this is because it was pre-owned, or whether it’s a manufacturing defect; nevertheless it was an entertaining puzzle that made for a lovely afternoon.

I spent some time yesterday looking at lots of puzzles at Puzzle Warehouse. I came across a couple of new images that made me say a word I can’t really spell – it’s a cross between “uhh”, “ew”, “yikes”, and “ouch”.

Cat Faces and Owl Faces are two new puzzles from D-Toys, a Romanian manufacturer. I haven’t tried this brand before; I was actually looking for one of their puzzles to try out. There are plenty of interesting images from this brand that look like they’d be great to assemble; but these two jumped right out at me, and not in a good way.

These images (to me) don’t look like fun to assemble, or even to look at. I suppose there are plenty of people who will like these images, but to be honest they kinda scare me a bit – just in time for Halloween, right? All those eyes staring out from those images are just creepy!

What do you think of these cat and owl faces? Scary? Cute? Would either of them be puzzles you’d be interesting in assembling?
