Most puzzle companies release their largest selection of new images in January, making that month a sort of puzzler’s late Christmas. We’ll be covering 2015 new releases here on Jigsaw Junkie. And the fun has already begun. Cobble Hill has released a sneak peek at their 2015 line-up.
These ‘earlybird’ puzzles can be ordered from selected retailers now and from pretty much everywhere in January. Here’s their two page spread of all their sneak peek puzzles. And here’s our brand comparison page for Cobble Hill (summary: very nice quality puzzles) And here are a few of my favorites. CLICK ON ANY OF THESE IMAGES FOR A CLOSE-UP.
Feline Bookcase by artist Janet Kruskamp, 2000 pieces
I like the fact that this is a larger puzzle (2000 pieces) with lots of color and detail. Also: cats and books. What’s not to like?
Doodle Town Mount Rushmore, 1000 pieces by artist Cobble Hill Puzzle Company
Dog Quotes, 1000 pieces by artist Lucia Guarnotta
More Cheese Please, 1000 pieces, Artist Cobble Hill Puzzle Company
Crafty Kittens, 1000 pieces by artist Amy Rosenberg
I have several Amy Rosenberg puzzles and this new design is a good example of why. With so many colors and patterns, the puzzle literally flies together. Like, it might actually work itself while I’m sleeping, it’s that easy. Good brainless fun.
Koi Pond, 1000 pieces by artist Larry Taugher
Birds of the Forest, 1000 pieces, by artist Jerry Gadamus
There are several new bird puzzles in the line-up but this is my favorite. Lots of individual colors and details.
Burgers, 1000 pieces, artist Cobble Hill Puzzle Company
Takes photo collage puzzles to a whole new level of greasiness. It’s sort of horrible and fascinating at the same time.
Midnight Messenger, 1000 pieces by artist Anne Stokes
It’s nice to see Cobble Hill dabble in fantasy and Anne Stokes is a well-known fantasy artist. Looks like a challenge, too, with all that white.
Christmas Presence, 1000 pieces, by artist Myles Pinkney
What do you think of the line-up? I think Cobble Hill’s images are getting more appealing. Do you?
