Artifact Puzzles - Joe Vaux Bad Apples Wooden Jigsaw Puzzles

$ 93.00


New Fall 2021! This is a wild 446 piece wooden jigsaw puzzle of "Bad Apples" by Joe Vaux.

Warning: we rate this puzzle PG-13 for cartoonish nudity and depictions of violence - see the pictures for representative examples.

The characteristically unusual and detailed art of Joe Vaux is celebrated by a wild and unusual puzzle design by Tara Flannery and Jef Bambas. Perhaps the only ordinary features of the design are the straight border edge and its mostly knob-shaped connectors. The themed whimsies are extra-strange, and the piece shapes are unique smoke-ring like nested pieces. The whole puzzle connects tightly, but the smoke-ring pieces are 3-4 nested connectorless ring pieces - tip: slide don't lift those, or they come apart! 

The overall difficulty of the puzzle is about average, but on the easier side of average.

Like all our puzzles, made with 1/4" thick wood and the pieces are laser-cut. Packaged in our standard pine wood box. Made in the USA (specifically, in Fremont, California).

11" by 16.75"

Review: Now that I have done several Ecru puzzles, I am increasingly bothered by the black outlines on Artifact pieces. The black lines really mar the beautiful images, particularly when the image is light colored, as in this puzzle. I would love to see some of the Artifact classics re-released as Ecru puzzles.

Review: I stayed up all night finishing this one - it just flowed like a raft down a river. This one has some puzzle piece shapes I've never seen before but seem obvious in retrospect: tree-ring like shapes that fit inside each other so they don't need connectors. The tree-rings fall apart when you move them around the table to put them into place, which caused some not-so-child-friendly expletives the first few times it happened, but since each ring is only a few pieces it wasn't a big deal. Once you get the tree-rings in-place, the whole thing holds together like champ, and the imaginative painting details pop-out at you - it's a fascinating image that would make Dali jealous.
