I must admit that I have done puzzles in the past but I feel that Gibsons are some of the best. The pieces are not cheap and thin, and the picture is lovely on this one. I would definitely recommend this if you like puzzles and the picture, if you are used to doing larger 1000 piece ones then this will be a nice one to do in between, which won't take too long.
This jigsaw is a lovely way to spend an afternoon when the weather is foul. It's an old fashioned cheap way of relaxing without the need to switch on the television. The subject matter is interesting, and is challenging enough without being impossible. There are only 500 pieces which means that the whole thing is entirely manageable, and you don't have to take up the dining room table for ever! The price from Amazon was naturally much more competitive than any where else, which means you have have more jigsaws. The delivery was much faster than anticipated. All in all an excellent purchase, and would make a super present.
