This is a cheery 156 piece wooden jigsaw puzzle with a fancy irregular edge with dropped-out pieces (see product photos for example). Suitable for kids, or likely to take an adult a relaxing hour or so. Puzzle design by Tara Flannery. The puzzle is a bit easier than average. Like all our puzzles, the pieces are laser-cut from 1/4 inch thick wood. Packaged in a small blue box with magnetic clasp. Made in USA.

Review: How adorable are these owls?! We have no little ones but as adults we still have plenty of fun working this easy, small piece count one.
Review: Another with an irregular edge. Don't be fooled if that's what you're looking for! A row of cuddly owls, which sounds like a contradiction in terms, but isn't in this case. Don't try to assemble edge first or you;ll drive your self nuts. An irregular-edged piece puzzle, of which I'm growing fonder. It seemed to work best by putting together clumps of matching colors, then reaching out for the ones that match those. Finally pull in the light blue ones that will connect them all. Last, you'll be left with those extra little owls which seem to be left over, but do end up fitting in somewhere. Not as hard as it looks! And quite satisfying.

Review: I like the contrasting colors, differing size of owls and the lattice-work border. A good family puzzle, and fun to do the individual birds, then put them all together. It is not a hard puzzle but does take some work.

Review: My 9 yr old daughter has done this puzzle at least ten times, she loves to take it out and do it again when friends or relatives come over. Lots of oohs-and-aahhs, it really is a pretty thing, and it's been holding up just fine, looks the same as when we opened the box. Usually takes them under an hour.
Review: I work with a group who loves wood puzzles, and puts them together without looking at the box. We like that extra challenge! Of course the title tells us something, at least for this one. We tend to begin with sorting colors. In this case we end up with a big pile of light blue, and a bit of lots of other bright colors. Anybody who begins putting together light blue gets pretty frustrated. We've done this one several times, and often several work on it at the same time. One of the things I like about it is that once everything else is done, there's still a pile of light blue, including owl whimsies. Fitting those last pieces in is amusing, because some fit in more than one place, but if you don't get them in exactly the right place, you can have an extra piece left over. Then you have to take a few out and try again. This is a fairly easy puzzle, very satisfying to put together, a charming image when you're done, and fun the second and third time too.
