We were recently asked if we'd like to review a Wentworth Wooden Puzzle. We were given the opportunity to choose which one we would like out of some pawsome cat-themed ones. Mum, being a lover of all things autumn, immediately fell in love with the one I'm sniffing out in the photo above: Halloween With Lesley's Cats.
I agreed that this was the one to review, as though it's the end of summer, Halloween will soon be upon us. And just look at the image, it's simply stunning.
A woody smell greeted Mum upon opening the delightful box. Then inside there was this sweet draw-string bag. She opened it carefully to reveal some 250 truly unique puzzle pieces. They are really lovely, though Mum said she was concerned that they are a bit small, and she didn't want me getting my paws on them in case I was a silly cat and swallowed any. Mum, I am cleverer than that! And also, she didn't want any peices going missing. Well, I'm not one of those clepto cats, so no worries there, Mum!
Wentworth Wooden Puzzles are finely cut using state of the art lasers to create a premium quality jigsaw that will be a treasured gift. All puzzles range from 50 to 1,500 pieces, so whether you are a beginner or an experienced puzzler, there is something for you. We were sent the one with 250 pieces (dimensions 360 x 250mm) which costs £27.95 (a bit expensive, yes, but the quality is superb and made to last years).
What is really unique about Wentworth are their whimsy jigsaw pieces. If you don't know, whimsies were specially shaped pieces cut into puzzles on a whim by Victorian hand cutters to reflect the theme of the jigsaw. Wentworth are one of the only companies still producing these unique puzzles
I'm afraid Mum hasn't completed the puzzle yet. Her excuse, well she's busy and has to find the time. But let me just say that she is not known for her patience (she doesn't mind me being honest with you). Ok, she admits that puzzles aren't really her thing. But nonetheless, she is delighted with this product and is certain it would make an ideal gift for any cat lover. And even though it's a Halloween-themed puzzle, we are sure any cat lover will enjoy and treasure this gift all year round. It could also make an excellent Christmas present.
