My son is a puzzle fiend. He delights in putting together puzzles, and has gotten pretty good at it. We’ve long since moved on from the basic wooden puzzles… and regularly tackle puzzles with 20+ pieces.
But this custom picture puzzle has become one of his new favorites. And that’s because the subjects of the puzzle are near and dear to us. Let’s just say, when I got the opportunity to review a custom picture puzzle, I was pretty sure it would go over well.
After ordering the puzzle, we had to wait for it to arrive by mail. The day it came, I handed it to Toby, who had an afternoon playdate with one of his grandmas. He was so excited when he saw the picture of him with his daddy and brother on the box lid. I opened the box and explained it was a puzzle of them — and Toby was rearing to go.
Toby delightedly chattered about finding “Daddy’s eye” …”Zack’s face”… and the like. As the puzzle pieces were put into place, he was visibly beaming from ear to ear.
I will say, after ordering this, I was slightly concerned that some of the pieces might be difficult, given the restricted color scheme of the picture I chose to turn into the puzzle. But, my toddler was not to be underestimated, and there were no problems whatsoever.
Quality-wise, the custom picture puzzle was nice. We received the cardboard version, but there was an option to upgrade to a wooden puzzle too. When ordering, you can alter the puzzle difficulty level by determining how many pieces it should be. I should note that the photo on the front was not as true to color, photographically speaking, as the image on the puzzle pieces themselves.
