July is when we start seeing the Christmas puzzles announced. Very exciting! This year is stacking up to be a great one.
RAVENSBURGER 2016 LIMITED EDITION CHRISTMAS PUZZLE: “Santa’s Christmas Party” by Roy Trower
This is the 20th in the Ravensburger limited edition Christmas series. It’s beautiful! Look at all the lovely detail in the dancing figures and that pretty winter scene backdrop. Outstanding! The box looks terrific too with a custom back about the puzzle.
GIBSONS 2016 LIMITED EDITION CHRISTMAS PUZZLE: “The Christmas Grotto” by Marcello Corti
The Gibsons’ release this year is also gorgeous. I love the old half-timbered buildings and all the figures.
Ravensburger’s What If? No 15: Christmas Day by Geoff Tristram
This isn’t a limited edition release, but it’s brand new for Christmas 2016. I love the “What If?” series and am happy to see another Christmas themed puzzle.
WASGIJ CHRISTMAS #12: “The Big Turn On”
I announced this one earlier, but I’ll add it to this post for completeness. Looks like a good one!
Still to come… WH Smith, House of Puzzles, Falcon, and Waddington’s.
What do you think of this year’s crop so far?
