Ingooood Rainy Night Walk

Comforting Landscapes

Ingooood is relatively known for excellent jigsaw puzzles that feature comforting, warm landscapes. The Rainy Night Walk puzzle is no exception. The images here are vivid and color balanced.

The company's puzzles always incorporate interlocking pieces that are made from sturdy blue chipboard on recycled paper.

In the product's case, the pieces also incorporate UV-protective coating that will shield the frontal part from harmful UV lights. The colors will not fade with time, so the final picture will remain as bright and vivid as ever. As far as the difficulty level is concerned, the model is neither too hard nor too easy.

The pieces are sometimes pretty similar and, since the picture is abstract, it can be hard at times to separate these pieces into colors (or trees, water, and so on). That being said, you can always cheat and separate the pieces by letter on the back.

The 1000-piece puzzle measures 29.5" x 19.7", neither too large nor too small. Some pieces are relatively small and hard to pick up but, generally speaking, you shouldn't have any major issues with the overall puzzle.

Bottom line, Ingooood Rainy Night Walk is easily among the best puzzles for adults. The puzzle is neither too challenging nor too basic. The materials are as durable as they come. The colors are rich and vivid.

White Mountain Candy Wrappers

Children and Adults Alike

White Mountain Candy Wrappers is suitable for children and adults alike. Children will be able to enjoy and appreciate the relatively easy but still somewhat challenging nature of the puzzle.

The adults will have the opportunity to take a stroll down memory lane and reminisce about various candies they used to enjoy back in the days. Presenting a collage that incorporates timeless candy brands, the puzzle will bring something to the table for pretty much all ages.

The company's very own E-ZGRIP™ pieces are durable and easy to pick up. They're pretty massive too, considering that the final picture adds up to 30" x 24".

The pieces are composed of sturdy blue chipboard on recycled paper. The paintwork is good enough, we don't have any major complaints on that front.

As far as we're concerned, the only issue with the product in general is that the set doesn't always include every necessary element, so you might be forced to contact the manufacturer and ask for the missing pieces.

Apart from that, White Mountain Candy Wrappers is great. The puzzle brings home hours of fun and of entertainment that everyone can and, likely, will enjoy. Plus, children will benefit from these puzzles' inherent ability to boost cognitive skills, improve hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills, problem-solving, shape recognition, memory, and task completion.

Ravensburger Bizarre Bookshop

Attention to Detail

Ravensburger Bizarre Bookshop is pretty great and we're not just talking about the picture's detailed quality here.

First and foremost, the 1000-piece puzzle is pretty affordable, especially taking the product's high quality into account.

The company's exclusively developed pieces are made from extra-thick cardboard combined with fine, linen-structured paper. These pieces create a glare-free image that lets you comfortably put together the puzzle under any lighting conditions. Plus, the extra-thick composition makes these puzzle pieces practically indestructible.

That's not the pieces' only unique quality though. Incorporating Softclick™ technology, the pieces make an audible "click" sound when you fit them into the right place, making the overall experience surprisingly more pleasant and rewarding.

Other than that, the puzzle's most discerning characteristic is that the pieces come together in a relatively standard grid pattern. As far as we're concerned, this makes the puzzle relatively hard, likely too hard for some people's taste but, at the same time, challenging and engaging for others.

Setting the difficulty question aside, there are many cool puzzles for adults but few are as cool as Ravensburger Bizarre Bookshop. It is up there with the most interesting and difficult puzzles. The picture measures 27" x 20", neither too large nor too small. The overall attention to detail is pretty remarkable too.

Buffalo Games Hummingbird Garden

Colors That Come Alive

Buffalo Games Hummingbird Garden looks absolutely beautiful. The birds, the flowers, the overall nature looks as alive as puzzles can look.

The picture quality is especially remarkable considering that the puzzle measures 26.75" x 19.75", which is relatively small as far as 1000-piece puzzles go.

The colors here are bright and very distinct. In fact, the colors are so distinct that some might find the puzzle not hard enough because the pieces look very different. That being said, the puzzle will definitely be able to present some challenge, at the very least.

It is not just about the picture quality here though. Featuring PerfectSnap™ technology, the pieces fit perfectly together. You'll have no issues connecting and separating these pieces.

Generally speaking, the premium-quality recycled cardboard here is as durable as they come. At the same time, some customers complain that the image peels off the base fairly easy. As far as we can tell, these things vary on the product-per-product basis.

What doesn't depend on the shipment is the poster that comes supplied with the package and can be used as a reference to put together the puzzle.

In short, Buffalo Games Hummingbird Garden is all about the aesthetically-pleasing final picture. You'll definitely want to frame this one.

Springbok Sweet Tooth

Eco-Friendly Approach

Springbok Sweet Tooth is very much affordable but, at the same time, a cut above its reasonably-priced competition in just about every regard. The cardboard is made from 100% recycled materials. The sustainably-sourced, organic, non-toxic, soy-based inks are as eco-friendly as these things can be.

As far as we're concerned, the only area where the product's super-low price shows is the die-cutting. Because it is pretty poor, the pieces don't always fit together that easily. At the same time, these pieces snap tightly into place, so you'll be able to lift the combined pieces without them falling apart.

The supposedly precise interlocking pieces are 18% thicker compared to industry-standard pieces, so you won't have to be particularly gentle with them.

The puzzle is not difficult at all. The 500-piece final image measures 23.5" x 18". The colors are very distinct. You shouldn't have any issues putting the puzzle together in a single evening.

To sum it all up, Springbok Sweet Tooth presents a kaleidoscope of colorful candy bars that both kids and adults will be able to appreciate. You won't need any experience with puzzles to put this one together. Plus, the puzzle is almost too affordable to justify not buying this thing.

Of course, most people associate these puzzles with kids. These people are wrong though. There are many different puzzles out there. Puzzles for adults are very much a thing.

There are many little details separating these puzzle games from jigsaw puzzles for kids. First and foremost, they're usually much more advanced and harder to put together. There usually are many more pieces. The pieces are often smaller. Sometimes, they can look very similar, making the task all the more challenging.

It's not all about the challenge though. There are puzzles for adults that are pretty easy to assemble too. They offer major benefits too. You can use these awesome puzzles to relax and unwind after a hard day at work but, at the same time, spend quality time together with your partner and/or friends. It is an excellent date night idea.

Diamond painting kits are similar to coloring puzzles in many ways. These kits don't just serve a decorative purpose but also let you cultivate patience, relieve stress, and have some fun in the process. Vinyl cutters are pretty different but can be used for similar purposes too.
