This is a 140-piece puzzle of "Octopus" by Paul Bond. The sneaky giant cephalopod in the art is paired with a clever puzzle design by Jef Bambas, which has an irregular edge, bubbly connectors, and many aquatic whimsies. Be warned this puzzle features man-eating sea-monster whimsies and so may not be suitable for all ages. The puzzle's difficulty is about average. Like all our puzzles, made with 1/4" thick wood and the pieces are laser-cut. Packaged in a blue box with a magnetic clasp. Made in the USA (specifically, in Fremont, California).

Review: Artifact Puzzles has another “Octopus- Rubber Ducky” themed puzzle titled “Overwhelming Odds” that ranks as one of my all-time favorite Artifact puzzles. So when the same theme reappeared I had no choice but to invest in “Octopus”. I did purchase the puzzle for myself, but for full and honest disclosure I have yet to touch the puzzle myself. Normally I finish a puzzle first then I lend the puzzle to very nice and responsible couple who always promptly send to me a trophy photo to my phone and return the puzzle with all the pieces in a Glad bag inside the box. Artifact puzzle never quite go together as planned, that is whole point of buying Artifact Puzzles. So when I lend a puzzle I always tell people; “If this doesn’t go the way you planned, if the puzzle makes you suffer terribly; please call me up and tell me all about in great detail.” This time I never got the trophy photo on my phone. When puzzle was returned I was told the puzzle was great fun however they did not want to ruin the surprise for me. And by the way: “If this doesn’t go the way you planned, if the puzzle makes you suffer terribly; please call me up and tell me all about in great detail.” Isn’t that the highest recommendation?
Review: This puzzle was so much fun. I didn’t realize it was shaped, so that made it even more enjoyable! I would classify this puzzle as extremely easy.
Review: A total delight! I was pleasantly surprised that my father-in-law actually worked on this with me... (He's not much into jigsaw puzzles - to put it mildly - but I could see him really enjoying figuring out this one.) It's got a lot going for it, at a few levels. Sometimes, you are in the mood for a shorter/quicker puzzle. This one does not disappoint. I have actually been considering making a nautical (round porthole window, or ship's wheel shape/theme) picture frame, to display it (yet still easily allow for future disassemblies and re-builds).

Review: This was a fun puzzle! I highly recommend it - a lot of fun for the money.
Review: This was a fun puzzle and it made me chuckle as a assembled it. It's the perfect type of puzzle to do when you have only an hour or so and you don't want to start something large or complicated. Artifact Puzzles does a really great job of incorporating the subject of the art into the design and this one does not disappoint.
