    I got one box to give as a gift and a second box for myself and I can say that these puzzles are very fun - but difficult! Getting the pieces apart is only half the battle because you then need to figure out how to put them back together! They provide entertainment for guests as well. Great product all around!

      My 30-year old son-in-law thought this present was a hoot. Went from puzzle to puzzle figuring them out. Had thought of breaking up the puzzles for stocking stuffers but packaging was so fun I left it as one (smallish) gift.

        I gave one puzzle to each family member in their stocking and they were a hit Christmas morning. Most of us were frustrated trying to figure then out, and then realized that my husband is a genius in disguise who had no problem showing off as he figured out each one! Lots of laughs and teasing. Great gift idea.

            My Grandfather who was an engineer enjoyed the puzzles. He got 3 figured out pretty quickly, but 2 took a little more time.

                    I sent the puzzle gift to two different people and they loved it!
                    Of course they are still cursing me because they can't figure out the solutions but that is part of the fun of the gift!

                        The puzzles are fun and a good way to pass time. There isn't much to write about these. They do not come with the solutions. I suppose they would quite simple to find online if you wanted to. But if you want to have the answers, they do not come with it.

                        Service and delivery comments:

                        Extremely fast delivery, packaging was perfect.
