Comments about UncommonGoods Great Minds Puzzles - Women in History:

These puzzles are beautiful. challenging and intriguing. I think they are best suited for experienced puzzlers. I think that these are a bit too challenging for a 10 year old who is just getting into puzzles like this. I've tried 3 of them so far and have solved 2 and they take some dexterity, planning and perseverance that kids just starting out with these do not have yet. That aside, I enjoyed working with these puzzles and am looking forward to trying the ones i haven't solved yet. They are appropriately challenging for adults.

Comments about UncommonGoods Great Minds Puzzles - Women in History:

It should come with a good pic of each puzzle before it's opened apart. It should come with instructions how to assemble back. Now I have them apart and can't remember what it looked like originally so I have to keep logging on this Web site to check how to begin to put it back together. I now have all the pieces in zip lock bags so I know what pieces go with what.

        My Aunt is going to use the product to challenge herself and have fun, like seeing how long she can complete each. It's a perfect gift idea for the person who has everything else and loves mind games like Soduko and Tetris.
