Many Travel Bags

Many Travel Bags
Many Travel Bags by A. Keattikorn – Milton Bradley – 500 pieces

My apologies for the cockeyed photo – I can usually do better than that. 😐 I like the alternative title for this puzzle shown on the box, “Valises a Gogo”. Sounds much more fun, doesn’t it?

The 300 piece Milton Bradley puzzle I posted yesterday was much better quality than this one, unfortunately. This 500 piece puzzle from the same brand had a very loose fit that was a difficult to work with early on in the assembly. The edges barely stayed together, and it wasn’t until quite a bit of the interior was done before I could trust that the pieces would stay connected if accidentally bumped. On the plus side it had very nice image reproduction, even if it was a tiny bit darker than the box showed.

I don’t know that I would have picked this puzzle out for myself, but it was more fun to put together than it looked. If you come across “Valises a Gogo” or “Many Travel Bags” it’s a fun picture to assemble, but I would recommend it from perhaps a different company if you’re not a fan of an extremely loose fit.

It certainly wasn’t my plan to do two puzzles by the same artist one right after the other, but that’s just how it worked out. This one was very busy and fun to do.

It must be a very old scene, the sign that says “and soon the telegraph” tells us that the technology is out there somewhere, it just just hasn’t made it to this small town yet. And for some reason I love the look of the tin peddler’s tent.
