    Comments about ELEMENTS PUZZLE:

    Bought this for my husband as part of his stocking stuffer for Christmas and we finally got around to putting it together. The border pieces are improperly cut. Some have obvious gaps that didn't fit quite right which caused a lot of confusion getting started and right at the very end. However, all of the inside pieces are great. It was a lot of fun, but for puzzles, precision counts and this missed the mark. Almost great!

      My husband and I finished this puzzle in three sittings and had a lot of fun doing it. I usually don't like puzzles very much, but this one was so quirky and interesting: it was great!

      We're looking forward to doing it again someday when we have kids.

        We are in the process of completing this puzzle. It is hard! After probably a couple of hours of one person working on it. The pieces are somewhat arranged into categories & the top & bottom border of the puzzle is complete. Not for the impatient! If you like a challenge, this is for you!

          Wonderful puzzle for families with kids, great for bonding and family night. 1000 pieces are enough for a Puzzle-Whiz as well!

            Every year there is a puzzle for a stocking stuffer for our family. After years of this tradition we have done every sort of "theme". This one was unique and interesting and got everyone talking while doing the puzzle. Great fun.

                    The perfect gift for my retired chemist father-in-law, who loves puzzles! But the colors, for the most part, are drab grays and black. Certainly challenging, but a bit monotone.

                      This photographic puzzle lets you visualize the periodic table. Of course we're fans of the educational element, but we think it also looks like a lot of fun. Would you love to learn about the building blocks of life one piece at a time?

                      Did you hear Oxygen and Magnesium got together? OMg! Haha I really love this, I'm in eighth grade and we are doing chemistry, we actually just finished working on the periodic table. I really want to be able to give this as a gift to my teacher at the end of the year.

                      Good question, Sarah! We're sorry we forgot to include the answer in the product story. The Elements Puzzle is made in the U.S.A. We're updating our copy with the information.
