This challenging 219 piece wooden jigsaw puzzle of a sea monster is titled "The Kraken" by Allen Douglas. This puzzle is very hard despite having only 219 pieces, because the edge is irregular (no straight edge pieces), and the pieces are pretty crazy. This puzzle was designed by Tara Flannery, and includes many ocean whimsy pieces. All our puzzles are laser-cut from 1/4" thick wood, and made in USA. This puzzle is packaged in a small cardboard box with a magnetic clasp.
Review: Beautiful design, you really have to use the shapes to complete the lower half. Love the piece shapes.
Review: This is a puzzle that I think would have benefited from the Ecru treatment (finer line cuts and matte surface) because the art is very subtle and it’s sometimes hard to see the image. The monster itself is delightful, and I like the irregular border and oceanic whimsy pieces. But I found the experience to be less satisfying than some of the other Artifact puzzles I have done.
Review: Amazing design and adorable whimsical pieces. Loved it.
Review: Great puzzle that’s looks amazing when completed. Pretty challenging but very fun...plus the sea creature pieces are a nice touch.
Review: Fun and challenging Love the organic curvy puzzle shapes and the tricky edge. Highly recommended!
