My husband just got a new office and let me go wild with decorating! He fidgets a lot when he's thinking hard or stressed (usually in the form of biting his nails/cuticles) so I knew he'd need some "toys" to keep his hands occupied. He's reported that he's doing just that and this puzzle is one of his favorites to "mess with" when he's in deep thought. If you too have a fidgety husband (or are fidgety yourself!) I highly recommend this product!

My husband enjoyed this puzzle, albeit very briefly. It took him only a couple minutes to take it apart and put it back together again. His main complaint was that the pieces fit together too loosely, so it's challenging to reassemble.

          My 10 year old is just getting into puzzles like these and this is a great amount of challenge plus being at the right level. This is the type of puzzle that he goes back to rather than completes once and is done. well done!!
