I love puzzles. It’s kind of one of those nerdy things about me. It’s one of my favorite things to do during the Christmas holiday, and I did several puzzles during the last two Christmases. It was awesomely fun!
I also love buying puzzles for my children. From four piece wood puzzles for when they are just toddlers to 48 piece puzzles as preschoolers, I love getting them puzzles, and they love doing them by themselves or with me. So, I was very excited to not only have a new puzzle for our family, but to have a family picture into puzzle form thanks to Piczzle.
Piczzle picture puzzles are a great way to personalize your puzzles! No more looking to find the puzzle picture that you actually like in the store – choose the image yourself!
I went on to their website and uploaded a picture from our fall family photo shoot. I added some text, and then they put it all together for me. I was a little nervous as there isn’t a preview of how the picture will be centered on the puzzle (no cropping allowed!) or where the text will be placed or what font and size it will be on the finished product. They have people who do all of that for you (which I don’t necessarily love). The puzzle I ordered was a medium 8.5″x11″ 48 piece cardboard puzzle (though they offer wood puzzles on their site as well). They have puzzles that can go up 2000 pieces!
When I received the puzzle in the mail, I thought the family picture looked great on it. The print quality was wonderful! I also liked that the cardboard pieces were thick. However, I wasn’t thrilled that the pieces didn’t have the nice glossy coat on top that I was promised. It’s a very dry matte finish. Also, by the time we had finished putting the puzzle together some of the corners were already starting to get dinged up (which will ultimately happen with children handling it). But, it was still a little disappointing.
However, considering I received the puzzle free for purposes of this review and it’s got a personalized picture (and with a challenging background) we will of course use it and love it for as long as it can withstand the forces of childhood.
