Ecru Puzzles - Jennifer Carson Vintage Halloween Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle

$ 60.00


This is a 223 piece wooden jigsaw puzzle of vintage Halloween art re-purposed by Jennifer L. Carson.

The image is spooky in a vintage and Hitchcock-ian way.

The puzzle design by Jef Bambas is unique in that almost all the pieces are a tessellation of bat shaped pieces!  It also has many Halloween-themed whimsies.

Overall, the puzzle is average hard. The edge is mostly straight. 

Our Ecru Puzzles line is characterized by a closer cut and a matte finish to reduce glare.  Like all our puzzles, made of 1/4" thick laser-cut wood and made in the USA. Packaged in a blue box with a magnetic clasp.

Formerly Mystery Puzzle #9

Review: A little bit harder than average. I ended up with two bats pieces that did not fit the two empty spaces left... Argh! I love the irregular border, it's a good mental tease.

Review: I have one word to describe this puzzle: sadistic! But I finished it! No wonder my co-worker had a sly smile on her face when she offered to loan this one to me. I plan to have a word with her tomorrow ...

Review: This puzzle’s cut is just brilliant and quite tricky - the sample shown does not reveal it. I would love to see more puzzles using it. I had so much fun putting this one together; having to rework those non-unique pieces only increased the pleasure.

Review: The snapshot of the single sample piece peaked my interest. Vintage, Spooky Hitchcock in the description sold me. I saved this one to build on Halloween...with the Full Moon--Blue Moon that was in the night sky on 10/31/2020. The clever cut of the puzzle pieces, put a smile on my face the moment I opened the blue magnetic box. WOW!!!! This puzzle was the best Treat! One really has to pay attention to puzzle piece placement. I had to put it in reverse several times in order to move forward properly. Now that was a Trick! One side of the edge was so creative. Another finely planned attention to detail. I will not wait until next Halloween to rebuild this excellent puzzle. Next time there is an all out thunder and lightening storm, this one will be pulled from my collection for a spookily charming rebuild. A

Review: Was given this puzzle as a Christmas gift. Two of my daughters and I lit into it the same day. Very clever with the puzzle pieces in the shapes of bats, Halloween cats, pumpkins, ghosts, etc. It took us an exhilarating 2.25 hours to complete without the aid of even a peek at the picture. Very fun. If you're a puzzle enthusiasts this one will not disappoint.
