beautiful appearance - pieces are smaller than I expected but again I should have visualized better. Again as with the 'cookies' puzzle the colored dots are small - maybe 1/8 inch diamter and the darker ones are a bit harder to see though the blue seems easier than on the cookie puzzle - the dark green and black are the toughies here! the one I got has a really beautiful appearance with the wood grains and colors - one is bit darker and one side is darker and the others vary just a tad in their shading and makes a beautiful product.. This just arrived so I've only played with it a little bit - the main drawback I see are the pieces fillting so snuggly- harder to get a piece out esp if it's not on the edge- fingernails come in handy if you don't catch the mistake as you're going along. (like not catching you put a green thinking it was black!) again this is one that is pretty enough I think I'll leave out - does not come with a cover like the cookie puzzle does. and this one is harder than it looks!
