Review: “Ladies Garden Club” by Susan Brabeau, Sunsout – 8.75/10

Publisher: Sunsout (US), published date 2017 Title:  “Ladies Garden Club” by Susan Brabeau, 1000 pieces  Finished size: 16″ x 34″ (panorama) OUR RATING: 8.75/10 Box Quality:  (8/10) The Sunsout boxes are very large and square in shape. They’re oversized compared to most boxes on the market. This takes up more shelf space but also provides a nice big image when you use the box lid for reference. The name of the puzzle, and artist’s name is prominent on the front. I really like how the artist isRead more

Review: “Puppies and Kittens” by Steve Read, Falcon – 8.5/10

“Puppies and Kittens” is a super cute two puzzle set from Falcon/Jumbo. Both puzzles are 500 pieces, and you can do them singly or mix all the pieces together to get a 1000 piece puzzle. Both images feature the animals in a home with lots of bright fabric textures such as the pink and blue bed in the puppies image and the red chair in the kittens image. This gives more variety and interest during assembly than puzzles which have large areas of dog fur. These are both very easy puzzles to assemble and would be ideal to do with kids. The Falcon quality is excellent. It’s a grid-cut puzzle with thick, sturdy pieces, a soft matte finish, a solid ‘click into place’ fit, and a seamless finish. Recommended.Read more
