Review: “The Alpine Northwest” by Charley Harper, Pomegranate – 8.5/10

Charley Harper’s National Park posters are lovely minimalist images of the American wilderness and make terrific puzzles, particularly when paired with Pomegranate’s excellent quality. Thick pieces, a good collectible box, and a puzzle finish that is soft to the touch, all make this brand a wonderful puzzling experience. “The Alpine Northwest” isn’t as colorful as some Charley Harper images, and there are a lot of white pieces here. But the assembly was fun and never frustrating. In the end you’ll have an image ideal for framing. Recommended.Read more

Review: “The Sierra Range” by Charley Harper, Pomegranate – 9.5/10

Box Quality: 9/10 The box is shown above. It is of sturdier construction than the typical Ravensburger or Jumbo boxes; however it is a bit smaller. Although the inside did not contain any leaflets or special information, the puzzle did come in a resealable bag and no puzzle dust was observed. TheRead more

If you’re looking for a little treat for yourself this weekend, below I’ve shared a few puzzles of my favorite puzzles in the store, items that are either new, back in stockRead more

New Puzzles: Feb 2018

There are lots of new puzzles this time of year. Let’s take a look at what’s arrived at Puzzle Warehouse in the last 30 days…. For your Edification – A Tip on Saving Shipping Costs: I used to never order a single puzzle because the shipping cost for just one can be nearly as much as the puzzle itself! Yet I’m not always ready to spend $75 to get free shipping either. That’s why I really enjoy the Puzzle Warehouse’s “Puzzle of the Month”Read more

For the Birds – A Top Ten Jigsaw Puzzle List

Happy Memorial Day weekend! We’re starting to have serious summer weather here, which always puts me in the mood for nature puzzles. Tigers, elephants, cows, lizards, and birds–all are frequent subjects of jigsaw puzzles. These puzzles bring a little bit of nature into the house. You don’t have to be a birdwatcher or be able to name a hundred species to appreciate a nice bird puzzle. The bird kingdom is full of different colors, shapes, sizes, and patterns, making birds quite good subjectsRead more

Fine Art – A Top Ten Jigsaw Puzzle List

Fine art puzzles have been around probably as long as puzzles have existed. It’s an obvious concept–take already created masterpieces of the art world and make them into puzzles. It’s so obvious one wonders why any other type of puzzle bothers to exist. After all, how can any new image compare to a long-established icon like “The Kiss” by Gustav Klimt or “Luncheon of the Boating Party” by Renoir? Fortunately, for lovers of diversity in their puzzles (like me), thereRead more

It’s been awhile since we’ve talked about Pomegranate.  They’re one of the classiest, highest quality American puzzle brands out there.
