We’re a bit puzzle obsessed in this house. We even spent part of our beach vacation in September working on a puzzle with my mom and siblings which is why I was excited to get one of Hallmark’s new puzzles in time for National Puzzle Day this Friday.
Hallmark kindly sent us the Tropical Wonders Jungle Rainforest puzzle. I was actually asked my preference and, only after completing the puzzle, realized that some of the puzzles are smaller than the 1,000 piece one I chose! Oops. I was picking solely based on the beautiful imagery and they are all so stunning. Trent teased me that I liked a challenge.
And, I did. I started this puzzle nearly a week before I finished it. I casually worked a few pieces here and there during the day. Both Trent and Dylan jumped in periodically to help me. Elise pulled a few pieces out … 😉
This puzzle was a joy to work. The colors and illustration are gorgeous and were such a delight on winter days – especially last weekend when we were stuck inside for part of the winter storm. (I love playing with my kids in the snow, but I’m much happier inside with my cup of hot chocolate and my puzzle when it’s sleeting outside!)
For 1,000 pieces, yes, of course it was a challenge, but it was manageable and at times I was surprised how quickly I found the correct piece.
It’s so gorgeous I haven’t even taken it apart yet! I’ll eventually have to to free up our dining room table again.
Do you enjoy puzzles too or know someone who does? Hallmark has kindly offered to send one of my readers a puzzle. The specific puzzle will be chosen and sent by Hallmark directly to the winner. Giveaway ends at 11:59pm on 02/03/16. Enter below and good luck!
