I thought this was a great concept. Stage 1 is to build a jigsaw puzzle of London from the 1600s. Graphics were good. Gave you a sense of how the town was growing on the Thames. Stage 2 was to overlay a second jigsaw puzzle, locked into the first showing present day London. It was interesting to see that much of the growth in the succeeding 400 years stayed on the north side of the Thames but grew east instead. Stage 3 was to take plastic miniature replicas of buildings, old and new, and place them in pre-cut holes according to the date constructed. I thought the finished project showed well and it was fun putting it together.

Others have mentioned the similar puzzle shapes. Being an avid puzzler, the tougher puzzles do have similar shapes as it makes the puzzle more challenging.

A word or two about the quality. The pieces are foam backed. I've built quite a few of the old Wrebbit Puzz 3D puzzles. Those are of a higher quality than this puzzle. The foam is mushier on this puzzle. Perhaps that's because the Puzz 3D was really a 3D puzzle so needed to be structurally sound. This company should also take a bit more care in disassembling the pieces for packaging. Some were folded or bent and the cutters that cut the pieces don't always make a complete cut. Many of the pieces were connected out of the box so I had to take great care in taking those apart so as not to rip the image. So I think the quality control could stand a little improvement.

But it is a new concept in puzzling and they get high praise for that. Despite the cost, I might get a few more

Purchase of this puzzle is a bad investment of time and money. London was my home and there is no city I love more, so I expected hours of enjoyment from this puzzle. I like challenge and had no issue with the difficulty of putting together hundreds of pieces that have the same shape. Disappointment began to build, however, as I worked on the boring, tedious first layer. The minimal historical information in that endless expanse of one-coloured streets was a missed opportunity to educate and pique interest in what was yet to come. Upon completion of the entire puzzle my disappointment turned to real irritation. I was astounded by the lack of imagination that rationalized including the 20th century slabs of concrete that now occupy the old wharves, rather than many of the treasures that make London uniquely historic. Much may have been lost to the Blitz, but how could the old Guildhall, Leadenhall and Smithfield mkts, Somerset House, the Inns of Court, Horse Guards Parade, Lambath Palace, Southark Cathedral -- even the National Theatre -- and so many other more important sites in the oldest part of the city be excluded in favour of pieces of plastic that represent generic office towers? And surely it would have been of more interest to the puzzle-worker to have shifted the thing west to include Regents Park, St James's Palace, Hyde Park, Chelsea, and Kensington. What a waste!

After visiting London with the family, I thought this would be a great way for us to remember our visit and learn more about what we saw.

The puzzle was of poor quality. The pieces are foam with the scene glued on, but not well enough to keep it from falling off.

Almost all the pieces are one of 2 shapes, so you can put together any of the pieces and they fit, making it very monotonous and impossible for more than one to work on much at a time, as you need to constantly look at the picture to know what goes where.

The old map is mostly just a tan paper with lines and almost no labels, so it seems purposeless.

The next layer was more detailed, but you feel like you've wasted a day putting together the bottom layer just to get that far.

Most of the buildings looked more like shapes/boxes than buildings, so we didn't get much out of what we were putting together.

This was a huge waste of money. Poor quality. Greatly disappointing.

I started this puzzle with a lot of enthusiasm, but it's beginning to wane. It's a great idea, and it's a beautiful puzzle. The problem is that there are only two shapes as far as the pieces go. This makes it very difficult to put it together, as often a piece will fit and look right, but not be right. I realize this is perhaps partly the point, as it makes it more difficult. But in my opinion, it makes it less fun. You have to constantly be looking at the printed map, and even then you can't always tell when you've gone wrong until later. Also, it's a bit fragile--the pieces don't stay latched together very well, so if you bump it they come apart from each other. But if you really like a challenge, you'll probably like it. It gives me a headache, but I refuse to give up!

This was purchased as a "participation" gift for London-o-holics, but met with mixed responses.
Pros included lots of things to do: Two distinct layers of puzzle-building not including MANY molded plastic skyline elements. Cons included less history or even location information than hinted at by materials (and promoting magazines). The main disappointment was that the foam second-layer lost the printed streets from several pieces. The older base-level puzzle actually had very little in the way of information. This was my first foray into this kind of puzzle. Hopefully helpful.
