@ronnyd@ypwulby I reviewed below, but biggest problem is the pieces are all of two different shapes, so a piece can physically fit anywhere. Especially for large areas of similar color, it is maddening.
@ronnyd@ypwulby are you speaking as some kinda pro jigsaw puzzle master? I can’t imagine I’d have an issue like that as a casual user? My main question would be about the quality of the puzzle pieces. Is it anything like a Ravensburger?
@bjango@ronnyd@ypwulby Puzzle pieces are thin and fragile. Much worse quality than old Ravensburger, and worse than new Ravensburger as well. They do go together - sorta - but… expect frustration as you bend or break them.
@bugger@mike808 Perhaps bugger has done 10ea. 500 piece puzzles. Much like George Carlin said, "I’ve never done it with a “10” but one night I did it with 5 “2s” I think George used a different word that “did it.”
I bought two puzzles last time they had them. I double checked and this is the same company. I would avoid these. I mean, I guess if you are really hard up for a puzzle to do, you can, but good puzzles are just $10 at Target. These puzzles are not good.
Some pieces come stuck together. All of the pieces come in like just two shapes, so they can fit anywhere. You spend a lot of time wondering if the slightly different shade of blue is in the right place.
@mattig88 When you’re looking for something, go to Morningsave, and check Sidedeal.com every day. You might find you use it more. But I’m probably going to get rid of my membership. It takes them so long to ship things out.
The donut puzzle reminded me to tell everyone that Krispy Kreme is giving a free donut to everyone who shows their CoVid vaccination shot record. You can use it once a day for the rest of 2021!
I won’t comment on the health concerns of eating a Krispy Kreme donut every day for a year. For some that might be worse than catching CoVid.
My mother has been looking for puzzles and I was going to pick some up for her. But she is prone to outbursts of frustration and I’ve been avoiding frustrating her for over 30 years… so I’m going to pass based on others comments. Thanks for the heads up, because now I can avoid the late night rantings from her (at least about the puzzles).
The bottom line is that you know there is some sort of issue with anything being sold on Meh. That doesn’t mean it necessarily is bad or unusable. It may just be old, obsolete or they had extra of it. It may still be of some benefit or use to you. Just as with everything you buy-cavet emptor-buyer beware.
@Felton10 I enjoyed your post immensely. Sage advice, well stated. I usually approach Meh products with that in mind and I’m prone to give them a lot of slack when I buy and also when I post in the forums.
P.S. THESE PUZZLES REALLY DO SUCK! You literally can’t even accurately build the outer frame because the pieces are too similar and the graphics are printed so poorly.
