It's like this....I live on my own, recently retired, no friends, relations etc nearby....Christmas and a long winter ahead. So I bought a jigsaw. Have not 'done' a puzzle for years, but thought it would be a way of passing the time on those long cold winter nights.
OMG! Hooked! These jigsaws are AMAZING! So much detail, so much you don't see at first. They are colourful,intricate, amusing, and completely absorbing. There are pieces that don't seem to fit anywhere at first, and then you find their place only to see a little a mouse having a cup of tea, or skull, or a pair of eyes staring out at get the idea?
Love them. Great for when there's not much to watch on tv (quite often for me)
Have got a few now..completely hooked

I'm a fan of Ravensburger Puzzles and particularly these intricate, detailed pictures that nearly drive you crazy. 'The Curious Cupboard' has 1000 pieces and the picture is exactly as shown on Amazon.

Artwork is sharp and clear which makes matching up all those tiny details much easier. Pieces are nicely cut and the card good quality that doesn't shred around the edges.

As you put the picture together you'll find some weird and wonderful details appearing from out of the background. Things you might not expect and you can't make out clearly from the picture on the box!. Quite cheeky in places and made me smile.

Colin Thompson was the artist responsible for 'The Curious Cupboard' and you'll need table space of approx. 70 x 50 cm for the completed puzzle.

A really good, intircate and frustrating puzzle. Good value for money. Took me weeks to put all the pieces together.

I had hours of fun completing this jigsaw! Hadn't done one for years, but after a knee replacement needed something to help fill the time and this fitted the bill perfectly. Wonderful artwork - every where you look you spot another little surprise. Even my little grandson was popping round to review progress every day and finding the odd piece. Have now ordered 2 more puzzles from the same artist. Addicted! Lovely!

This was the first in this series that my wife and I tackled and we were very pleased with it. The illustration is great and full of surprises and the pieces went together well. Just one disappointment at the end - one piece missing! We have used the instructions inside the puzzle to post our disappointment and await Ravensburger's response. Not a complaint, just a technical hitch.

The quality of puzzle is excellent. Solid board and well cut pieces that fit together with a click and certainty. Perfect finish that you can do in both daylight and electric light without a problem. Wonderful picture that made me giggle at times with what I discovered in the detail. All round excellent value for money and a thoroughly enjoyable jigsaw.

I bought this as a present for my mum. She loves doing jigsaws and particularly likes doing this artist's ones as they have so many interesting little details in them and they look really nice when completed. The humour in Colin Thompson's art is quirky and funny and his style is perfectly suited to this medium. The price is good too.

Build this with my mom & wife during a 1-week holiday.
It's designed so that about 90-95% of all pieces have some form of uniquely identifiable picture/item on it, so that you can locate it's position "fairly" easily. The puzzle still took us about 20 man-hours to complete.
Quality = superb! (should last a lifetime)

Loved this puzzle! Its difficult but not too difficult and kept my interest throughout as its the first 1000 piece I've completed. Got completely obsessed with it and an hour could pass by in minutes! Loved the humour and noticed something new in it every time I did a bit. Have bought another two of Colin Thompson's puzzles.

This item was very well packed and arrived promptly. I bought it as a present and my friends have said it is extremely good fun, very challenging, and most importantly they thoroughly enjoyed completing it as it is also a great picture. Needless to say I will be ordering more.
