This review is from: Superstitions a 1500-Piece Jigsaw Puzzle by Sunsout Inc. (Toy) I love James Christensen’s artwork, and own many puzzles featuring them. My two favorites are Fairy Tales and Nursery Rhymes (not sure what that one’s called), but I have been collecting others through the years. This puzzle looked promising to me, and the price was certainly right! The first mistake I made was trying to assemble it on a card table. The long side of it makes it so that one edge easily gets pushed off while you’re working on the other side. So I transferred it to a 6′ table, discovering in the process that these pieces do NOT stay together when you move them (unlike some others). Major reassembly was needed at that point – luckily I’d only done the edges and some of the pink/purple part! So check the dimensions and make sure you start off with enough room (keeping in mind the 1,500 pieces that need a place to be until you place them). After that, assembly went relatively quickly, with a few tricky parts but nothing too difficult . . . until all I had left was the starry sky. Oh. My. Goodness. Other than the moon and shooting comet, there is NO way to tell which piece belongs where – and there are a LOT of sky pieces. I was prepared to say I’d had my fun and be done with it, but my husband is a stick-to-it-to-the-finish kind of guy, so he separated them into the four types of shapes (which was the only saving grace – at least we knew what shape was needed), and proceeded to try every. single. one. of them in every spot. It reminded me of that scene in UHF with the blind man playing Rubik’s Cube – “Is this it?” “Nope.” “Is this it?” “Nope.” It took the two of us a couple of days of many hours to get those stupid sky pieces in. So, overall, the picture is beautiful and has a lot of interesting details – but be aware going in that the sky will take a LOT of time! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 12 of 13 people found the following review helpful Sky is Extremely Difficult!, June 1, 2012 By Kimberly Green (AR) – This review is from: Superstitions a 1500-Piece Jigsaw Puzzle by Sunsout Inc. (Toy) I love puzzles, but once you get to the starry sky it isn’t really a puzzle anymore. Why? Because there is no challenge in finding the correct piece. It’s more a matter of trying each piece until you find the one that fits. There are 4 different shapes of pieces and each of those look practically identical. In fact, if you put one on top of the other you will not visibly be able to see any difference by shape or color. To top that off, the pieces don’t fit together all that well. It’s annoying to think you have finally inserted a piece only to find out that it doesn’t work. Sure, that happens sometimes when you work puzzles. Count on it happening a lot during this puzzle. I dislike this puzzle so much that I won’t buy another Sunsout puzzle. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment (1) Reply 8 of 8 people found the following review helpful Artwork is wonderful, shape of pieces is awful, February 20, 2013 By Andrew Merrill (Clarksville, Tennessee, United States) – This review is from: Superstitions a 1500-Piece Jigsaw Puzzle by Sunsout Inc. (Toy) This puzzle was purchased for me on Amazon as a gift. The artwork of James Christensen is wonderful and I have 5 other puzzles of his artwork. This particular puzzle was just as fun to put together as the others until I came to the night sky. There are only 4 basic puzzle shapes with slight variations, some hairline variations. In order to find the right piece to fit you basically had to try every piece of the particular shape needed. Sometimes I couldn’t find a piece to fit, which meant that the prior pieces needed to be changed and I had to start over. The sky became such a problem to put together, that after 2 nights and only 15% complete, I decided that it was no longer fun and not worth completing. This is the only puzzle I have ever called it quits on. I usually work my puzzles over again but this one is going back to the manufacturer. The manufacturer, in my opinion, used the wrong die cut, and did a dis-service to the artist. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
