I chose this puzzle for many reasons: it does not have too much sky or snow--whenever I buy Christmas puzzles with a lot of snow/sky, I find that either my children or my mother complain about the difficulty of putting the puzzle together, and ultimately my husband and I work on the snow/sky while other members of the family work on the "fun" bits (Christmas trees; stockings; skaters, etc.); this puzzle has lots of details that anchor you to where--within the world of the puzzle--you are(crackerjacks along the floor help with assembling the floor, the patterned rug as opposed to a wooden floor or a single color carpet allow you to work the floor without thinking about subtle color variations), the picture frames along the wall help show you what section of the wall you're on, and the wallpaper's pattern is simple (not some whimsical pattern) so you need not rotate one piece multiple times to figure out if it might fit with another piece; the scene is festive and has a bit of that nostalgic feel that makes for a nice feeling while you're working the puzzle (my nearly three-year-old who does not work on the puzzle loves seeing Santa Claus, and my older daughter loves all of the animals). Frankly, the hardest part of the puzzle has been the Christmas tree, but even there you have some help with the colors of the beaded garlands. The easiest part to assemble was the window and the items surrounding it.
Also, I wanted a 1,000 piece puzzle (500 piece puzzles move much faster and are a bit less challenging, and 1,500 piece puzzles are generally more challenging and time consuming).
Added bonuses: this is one of the first puzzles on which I have worked where I am not repeatedly asked/asking if one piece does indeed fit with another. It's evident when a piece does fit and when it does not. When you consider this is a 1,000 piece puzzle, the pieces are actually rather large and far from flimsy--the puzzle was cut well. The picture is pasted on well, so you're not dealing with little bits of paper rolling up, and I absolutely love that I do not have bits of sawdust all over my table and that the pieces are free of that grimy sensation that sometimes accompanies the sawdust residue.
I think the puzzle offers just enough of a challenge to make it worth doing, but is not so cumbersome that you can't relax and enjoy the company of your family as you're working on this. I will certainly look at more of the puzzles designed and cut by White Mountain, and I would definitely buy this item for anyone I know who has the patience to work on a 1,000 piece puzzle (there are also many lovely 500 piece puzzles out there).
I liked the Happy Hour puzzle very much. While it is a big beach scene, it had enough small sections with a picture that it went together quickly. Things with small contained sections, like the whiskey labels or beer caps or playing cards or even the USA puzzle went forward quickly, and I could find enough pieces to fit in the time I spent that I always felt I accomplished something and had a significant chunk done. The wine bottles puzzle was middling - WAY too many green grapes to match all over the puzzle...
this is smaller than the other White Mountain 1000 piece puzzles I have done, and I much prefer the puzzles with bigger pieces - so much more impressive when you are done.
I bought this for my father as a Christmas eve gift and he just finished it. The regular run of the mill puzzle takes him only two or three days.
This puzzle looks so amazing that you could frame this and put it up at Christmas or put it in a child's room. It looks that great!
