Ozuzo from Baffledazzle
A package of happiness arrived in the mail last Thursday...it contained 2 puzzles from Baffledazzle!
We opened Ozuzo and got started solving! (I also got Cirkusu, but that's for later!)
My mom and dad were visiting this past week, so I had three helpers...Jack, Ginny and Grandma! And I needed everyone! Do you see those teeny-tiny pieces? There are 15 animal puzzles to solve in this set and ALL the pieces come in one big baggy! (We got the extra piggy puzzle because we were Kickstarter backers!)
We dumped everything out on a soft blanket so that the tiny pieces wouldn't roll of the counter. This was somewhat helpful.
Jack kept accidentally lifting the cheetah out of place and loosing all the pieces he had already placed inside! After the 3rd or 4th time, he gave up and went for a shower. Ginny managed to get the cheetah finished after that. But can you see all the tiny pieces inside the cheetah!?? I'd get annoyed having to do it again too! So we decided that the puzzle pieces should be on a non-skid surface, but the animals should rest on a nice flat surface.
Baffledazzle puzzles are not just jigsaw puzzles. After you get all the pieces put together, then you have to figure out what they are! Not all the animals were obvious. We really thought the one tiny guy was a mask, but he's not! I'll leave that a mystery, since this is part of the fun of solving these puzzles! We did manage to figure most of them out, but 2 of them were a real challenge.
Baffledazzle puzzles are on the pricey side, but they are worth every penny! These are such lovely, well-made puzzles. They would make a really unique gift for the puzzler on your Christmas shopping list!
