Have Some Fun(gus)

Step one to solving the Mushroom Puzzle is remembering not to eat the components. Step two is up to you. Although it might seem like a picnic, the Mushroom Puzzle is surprisingly challenging - the crafted wooden pieces fit together in only one particular way. Each of the mushrooms is based on a different actual species of fungus, so the game is just as educational as it is enjoyable. Crafted from sustainably harvested Maple, Walnut, Birch, Mahogany and Padauk with a natural Tung Oil finish. Birch storage tray with an engraved cheat sheet. Includes list of mushrooms. Handmade in Arizona.

    I have wanted to buy this puzzle for my brother in law for some time. When it arrived I was very surprised at the cost vs. the size and quality of the product. I know he will enjoy the gift so I will not return it; however, I will not be recommending it to anyone, either.

        Comments about MUSHROOM PUZZLE:

        I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend who is a mushroom fanatic. When it came I was a little displeased by the small size of the puzzle but that quickly faded when I realized how beautiful it was. All the wood had different colors and patterns making it very unique; a rather nice piece of art as opposed to something to be played with. He loved the gift and we had fun solving it together, so it was definitely worth it!

        Service and delivery comments:

        I chose the standard shipping option and received the package in only 2 days- thanks for the fast delivery!

            My daughter asked for this puzzle for Christmas. She loves and collects all things mushrooms. The puzzle was a stunning piece of artwork. Each mushroom is made of a different type of wood. The pieces are not stained. And the common name and Latin name of each mushroom accompanied the puzzle. It is one of my favorite gifts and I will choose it again for a special gift for others. Thank you!

              Bought this as a gift for someone who studies mushrooms. They enjoyed challenging themselves by trying to name all the different species, while also learning a few new ones. It is small in size but high in quality.

                way too small as pictured! and too expensive for what it actually is...the quality of the wood was pretty poor.
