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.

Review: “Sunday Lunch” by Steve Read, Falcon — 9/10

"Sunday Lunch" is a wonderful puzzle for the holidays. The subject is unusual in puzzles, with a contemporary family around a holiday table. It's a breeze to assemble thanks to each character's unique face, hair, and clothing, the orange curtains, the windows, and the loaded dining table. This is a puzzle you can work without constantly referring to the box lid. I found it particularly fun to piece together the "feast" on the table. 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. Highly recommended!
