This is a 257 piece wooden jigsaw puzzle. Justin Hillgrove's cute yet frightening art is matched by Jef Bambas's bubbly puzzle design with fun whimsies. Slightly extra large pieces make for family-friendly fun. All of our puzzles are laser-cut from 1/4" wood. Made in the USA. Packaged in our standard unfinished pine wood box.
Review: OMG this puzzle was adorable! I have to admit I love octopuses but the rubber ducky addition was a delightful whimsical twist. And as has happened so many times in the past, when I opened the box I found a piece I was sure wasn't actually part of the puzzle but which made the finished jigsaw magical. Truly a surprise!

Review: This was a little harder than we expected, as there were a lot of blue pieces and yellow pieces and not a lot of clues which ones go with which ones, but everyone was very excited about the rubber duckie connectors. We did finish it in one long afternoon, and then a few days later my daughter took it apart again and has bee re-doing it for homework breaks.

Review: Neither will I ruin the special surprise, but I will share that the puzzle is "average" to "kinda hard" difficulty. With many interruptions I finished the puzzle in 4 four hours. Roughly one piece per minute, about par for an Artifact puzzle. Whimsical pieces abound, which I am getting better at exploiting. The red octopus head went very quickly. Connecting all the surface bubbles helps one determine the puzzle width. Assembling the eight octopus legs under water and finishing below the water line was difficult. Finding all the dark blue square tiles and white band, bathtub edge goes quickly. What remains is to fit in a few dozen yellow ducky pieces and you are done. Most of the piece connectors are bubbles and duckies, all very cute. This puzzle was a lot of fun, not super easy or near imposable. The degree of difficulty was spot on perfect for me. I ordered a bunch of gallon ziplock bags today. Sometimes puzzle pieces get lost in the tissue paper within the box. I like to keep my puzzle pieces under control. Goes with out saying the quality of art and design, this puzzle and all Artifact puzzles is always outstanding.
Review: Another delightful puzzle! Very cool rubber duckie and fin-shaped connectors, and lots of sea creatures lurking in the tub. A joy.
