Happy New Year, Puzzle Fam! Yes, I know that we’re about 4 weeks in, but in case you didn’t notice, it’s my first blog post of 2022! To celebrate that fact, I thought that I would spend this article writing about some of the puzzle brands that are new to Puzzle Warehouse. I’m really excited about this, because they added some really amazing brands last year. Luckily, I’ve tried most of them, so I actually have an educated opinion. I’m not going to say that I deserve a PhD in Dissectology, but Harvard has yet to return my e-mails and I’m starting to think that they’re not taking me seriously.
We are in the depths of winter here in North America so it was definitely time to bring color - a lot of bold, bright colors - into my life. For my last Puzzle of the Month pick, I choose Pure by Clementoni. It is part of the very popular Color Boom collection. For me, gradients are always a relaxing way to puzzle. You may be thinking, “BUT THERE’S NO IMAGE?!?! How is that fun?!?” I am the type of person that loves to put a puzzle together by color.
“Decadent whimsy” was the first thing that popped into my head when I saw the new Janet Hill Studio line from New York Puzzle Company (NYPC). The second thought was “I need all of these,” obviously. With fourteen puzzles in the series, it is quite a collection. Worth it!
The puzzle images are all about the art of being fabulous. Take “Breakfast in Bed,” for example. I chose this 500-piece puzzle as the first from the series to add to my collection...
I have a confession. My favorite part of this crazy habit I call puzzling is getting to explore a completely new-to-me puzzle brand. I absolutely love dipping my toes into the proverbial water of a new puzzle: how are the pieces, will they fit well, is this going to be love, or hate, at first touch? Well- I have to tell you that I loved this puzzle! This is Jellyfish, a 1000 piece puzzle from Gibsons, and it is my very first puzzle by this UK based brand.
Today I’m bringing you a super bright and fun puzzle from Colorcraft Puzzles. I’ve done a couple Colorcraft in the past, but they’ve released a bazillion new puzzles this year, with amazing designs, new packaging, and even better piece feel than before. Coming in at 1000 pieces, Crispy Frosted Goodness is a stunner! The background gives 90’s afternoons at The Max vibes, with all the sprinkles, frosting, chocolate, and candies you could possibly want on the wafer cookies of the main design.
Hello out there in puzzle land! It's been a hot minute since my last puzzle musing, but I'm back and ready to talk dissectology! On the board today is a new to me brand, Workman Publishing. This company was founded in 1968 and is now the largest trade book publisher in the US! Thankfully for us, they don't just publish books, Workman puts out a pretty fantastic puzzle as well. Today's puzzle is called "The Illustrated Herbiary: California Poppy".
