Putting a round puzzle together is different, and in some ways a lot more challenging. Our tester loved the cheerful folk art look of the image designed by artist Carolyn Gavin. Positivity seems to sing out with all the sunny faces smiling above the face of the woman with a head covered with flowers, fruit, animals, tropical trees, birds and butterflies. It’s so bright and charming, you won’t want to undo it. With 500 pieces, this makes a do-able family project that ends up a big 23” in diameter. Puzzling makes for an entertaining way to take a break from screen time while building problem solving and stay-the-course skills. Also very attractive, look for Moon Dance another 500-piece round puzzle with a diverse group of young women dancing in a fantasy scene.
Ages: Tweens and Teens.
