You guys, this puzzle was so fun and so addicting! I bought this as a "family" Christmas gift. When we opened the box and dumped all the pieces on Christmas afternoon, I realized that 1000 pieces is an awful lot and maybe just maybe it would be too hard for us! But, despite the high number of pieces, this puzzle was pretty doable because it was so fun just to work on one candy wrapper at a time. Even the 6 year old could help (he loves puzzles--the seven year old not so much--he was way more into the Wii we also got).
Unfortunately, I love candy, and this puzzle reignited a weird fascination with it, especially the vintage aspect of it (lots of vintage candies are included in the puzzle) was so nostalgic for me. So as a consequence, we've been to not one but two candy stores since we finished the puzzle. We don't usually do that! Hopefully it's out of my system for awhile.
We found the puzzle here. Do you have any favorite puzzles you like to do as a family? I'd love to hear.
