Review: “4th of July Parade” by Bob Pettes, Sunsout — 8.25/10

This 4th of July themed puzzle is an easy family project for those warm summer evenings. The round shape makes for an unusual and fun puzzle assembly. There are plenty of small figures throughout to discover as you put the puzzle together. Like most Sunsout puzzles, the pieces feel thick & sturdy. However, the cut is close to a grid cut with standard piece shapes even though corners don’t quite meet up. There’s a lot of green grass in the image, but objects and people break it up in most areas of the puzzle. The brown path with its marching figures is particularly fun to assemble. Recommended for anyone who likes Americana or holiday-themed puzzles.Read more

This is a puzzle that keeps your interest to the end. Recommended for anyone who likes Americana or holiday-themed puzzles.Read more
