Waste of Time
on 22 November 2015
I bought this to complete a 1000 piece puzzle and to save space on the main table but I have found it to be a waste of time. In the box is a felt mat and a tube that needs fitting together to roll the mat up once finished. The concept is ok but the material used for the mat is terrible and ruins it completely. It is felt and horrendous to use - the material is so rough, I've found the pieces just catch on it constantly and this makes it really annoying. Even joining two pieces takes more time than usual! If I've done a row of pieces and then want to move it to join it to some of the others, the row just catches on the felt - the pieces all come apart and I have to join them all together again. I found this happened all the time. It is also very hard to lie the mat completely flat - it comes folded in the mat and the folds won't press out, so even when the pieces are in the right place they don't fit together perfectly.
The mat was such a waste of time I gave up with it in the end, just choosing to go back to using the table again.
