This beautiful winter collage puzzle is a super easy and relaxing puzzle to assemble. The distinctive colors, and the three separate photo scenes, make the puzzle go together quickly. The Trefl brand from Poland is a grid-cut puzzle with standard piece shapes and sizes. The pieces are not as thick as some Euro brands like Ravensburger or Jumbo, but thick enough to resist bending and damage. Recommended for children, seniors, and anyone who enjoys 500 piece puzzles. 7.8/10
If you like random-cut puzzles, larger pieces, and a bit of a challenge in your jigsaws, you'll love "Wharf Street" by Springbok. The photographic image has painterly qualities. The central part of the image, with the bright colors, flags, and reflection in the puddle, is fun and easy to assemble. But the large amount of cobblestones in the foreground are tricky to piece together, and there're quite a lot of dark pieces too. The Springbok quality is excellent with a tight fit and creative cut. But the surface of the puzzle is shiny and does give off glare under overhead lights.
