I gave this puzzle as a Christmas gift to my wife, and she really enjoyed putting it together (I got to help a little : ) The 500 piece version of the Autumn cottage we got assembled into a beautiful image. The wood pieces click together in a satisfying way. My wife particularly enjoyed all the whimsy pieces, of which there were roughly 30 - a variety of animal shapes, pieces of furniture, trees, etc. We found in assembling the edge pieces first, that there were at least 7-8 pieces with a single straight edge that were not part of the actual border - kind of tricky on the part of the puzzle design, but part of the fun. Overall, this puzzle was about average difficulty to assemble for a 500 piece puzzle, but a particularly enjoyable one because of the solid wood pieces, the whimseys, and the beautiful image. The only slight downside is the wood pieces had a bit of an off-gassing odor, not bad, but noticeable. We had the puzzle out for about a week and it did seem to decline as the days went by, so if that bothers you I'd suggest laying the pieces out before assembly in an out of the way spot for a week or so. We liked this wood puzzle enough to order two more of other patterns, one for us and one for my mom.
The Wentworth puzzle "Autumn Cottage" is my first Wentworth and it's definitely everything I have read about them and more...Galaxy Puzzles was efficient and fun to order from. I highly recommend them for ordering jigsaw puzzles and in particular Wentworth Wooden Jigsaw Puzzles.
