    Gave this to my husband who is a puzzle whiz. It took him longer than normal to figure them out, yay! Good puzzles to keep his fingers busy while he is on the computer.

    I split up the set and they made perfect stocking stuffers. However, 2 of the wood puzzles broke apart immediately after we started trying to solve it.

      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.

                    The gift was presented nicely in its box. I thought that the puzzles were going to be bigger.
