Bird's Eye View

You'll feel on top of the world as you piece together this 300-piece puzzle, featuring a satellite image of your home sweet home. Made of 3mm thick European birch plywood, the jigsaw puzzle's custom-printed photo covers an area of 1 mile north-to-south and 1.5 miles east-to-west, giving you a bird's eye view of your neighborhood, with your house right at the center.

Taking a page from traditional Victorian craftsmen, there are 15 specially-shaped "whimsy" pieces, including the letters H-O-M-E, and the house-shaped piece right at the center where your home is located. This personalized design comes packaged in a plush velvet pouch and book-inspired box, lending handsome appeal as a housewarming gift or coffee table topper. Made in the United Kingdom.

      Great fun for all guests - young & old - at my friend's beach house. Very nice quality; best friend worthy birthday gift. All good except would like to have had input on the satellite view of the address for puzzle. I would have preferred a little less ocean view, and a little more town view.

        Comments about CUSTOM SATELLITE MAP PUZZLE:

        Bought one of these for my mother, an avid puzzler, for her birthday. Our hometown is Eastern Kentucky and the satellite image was just perfect. This is going to be a difficult puzzle. She absolutely loved it. The presentation in the velvet bag and book case were added bonuses. Thank you very much. I would certainly recommend.

                I bought this gift for my mother, the woman with everything. It was so unique. I can't afford to buy gifts that compare to the nice things she has. Although she is very gracious, I still want to get her something nice. The puzzle came in a beautiful box with a velvet pouch to hold the wooden pieces. It is a small puzzle but because of the graphics, it was still challenging. She loved the originality of the gift but mostly because it was so personal. I would highly recommend this gift.

                    Comments about CUSTOM SATELLITE MAP PUZZLE:

                    This is definitely a fun, unique gift for someone, especially a puzzler or map aficionado. This is probably a mid-level puzzle if you order this for a suburb or city residence, but if you order for a rural location the puzzle becomes an 8-12 hour puzzle at high-difficulty. It was definitely fun, but very time-consuming. For us, during the holidays, that was perfect! Ha!

                    Pros: Fun, good quality, interesting, family oriented, playful, great gift.

                    Cons: Cannot choose image yourself, off-gassing is intense at first, manufacturing process has black dust that sheds when using puzzle at first but it is easily remedied with a little cleaning or prep for the surface, supplied reference image print-out is a bit low-quality.

                    Overall I'd recommend this to suburban or city images. Rural images could vary widely so that could be an issue for some. Our older relatives were unable to participate because of the complexity.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    I called to inquire if a "proof" of the puzzle would be emailed to me first before approving the fabrication. It was confirmed on the phone via customer service that this would indeed be the case. However, I received an email several days later that it was shipping. I called to check and they said the first CSR was mistaken. I would have had the manufacturer zoom into our home a bit more, if possible. I'm sure the satellite resolution varies widely depending upon location however, so not sure they could actually reorient the image. However, the puzzle quality was quite good and we were pleased in the end, if a bit fatigued at the complexity because of the rural nature of the image meant very difficult swaths of the image to piece together.
