Oh, dear...

 photo shoeargh_zps10104db1.jpg

I am sadly disappointed in this puzzle.  I've worked two from this company before, and they were fine.  And the picture on the front of the box for this one is fine, too.

The puzzle itself, however, is horribly pixellated.  I mean it looks like it's nothing but colored dots.  So that up there is as far as I've gotten and it's been about three days.  I'm trying to decide to keep going, because the whole picture might look okay and my brother did say he wanted it - or scrap it and pick another puzzle?  I don't know...

A quick look at how I sort 500 piece puzzles from this particular company (because I have lots of them!):

All turned over first - I do this with every puzzle, no matter the company - then sorted.  Short pieces, long pieces, edge pieces, the four corners, and any pieces that were still stuck together, because I hate it when you have to tear them apart and the bottom layer rips.

And then on to the frame:

I had been saving this one to work on my birthday!

I have gotten some puzzled looks when I showed it to family, asking why the cake says 'Birthday Happy'.

I tell them it's really Yoda's cake XD

I gotta admit, sometimes doing a really fast kid's puzzle can be a lot of fun.

Or maybe I'm just easily entertained!

Another frame shot to be silly - this puzzle was finished in no time, but I took a couple of pics, anyway XD

It's very big and with it's gigantic pieces, it took up my whole table, leaves and all!

The next of Mum's kid puzzles.  This one is a little more intricate, but only because of the picture.

'Buddies' - 100 Pieces

**EDIT**  I just realized that the post of the box for this is gone or misplaced - it should have explained that my Mum bought some kid's puzzles at a yard sale for the little boy she babysits and wanted me to work them to make sure the pieces were all there!

This puzzle actually had no name, so I call it 'Buddies'

Couldn't resist being silly and doing a 'frame' shot for this little thing!

Some Kid's Puzzles

My Mum bought a few kid's puzzles at a yard sale for when her little not-grandbaby (she just claims he is, lol!) comes to visit.  He's three and loves puzzles, especially ones that are above his age group.  She asked me to work them first to make sure all the pieces are there, so you will be seeing them for the next few days. I've done two so far and put the rest back for later.

This is the first:
