My daughter Gracie is a puzzle lover! So much so, in fact, that last year for her birthday, she received the Walt Disney World Cinderella Castle Puzzle by Thomas Kinkade. She put it together on a puzzle mat, and it’s been stored there ever since. We need to find someone who is handy with wood and can make a frame for it, as we’d love to display it somewhere in our home.
Needless to say, when I received an e-mail from Ceaco last month, announcing their Dreams of Disney Jigsaw Puzzle collection, I got excited! I knew that Gracie would be just THRILLED to put another puzzle together and the thought of having more than one of them to group together on a wall in our house made me giddy! Thomas Kinkade was a man of remarkable talent. I’m glad that he used some of that talent to create such beautiful pieces based on Disney movies!
These puzzles are slightly smaller in size than our Cinderella Castle puzzle (that one is 27″x20″, while these are 24″x18″). I think the smaller size will make them a wonderful compliment to the original! They are also smaller in piece number (1,000 pieces vs. 750 pieces). Gracie, who is normally very selfish with her puzzles, was gracious enough to let us help her with this new one. We made the mistake of putting it together on our dining room table several weeks ago and guess where it still is?
Be honest – could YOU bear to take it down? I can’t. Thankfully, we have some puzzle glue here – so I think we’ll glue it together and continue our search for a frame maker! These puzzles are just too pretty not to put on display.
One thing that is especially fun is that there are some “hidden elements” in these puzzles. The puzzle we received – entitled Beauty and the Beast Falling in Love – contains a little Pinocchio in the distance. Can you spot him?
At only $11.99 per puzzle, these are definitely affordable fun (and cheap decoration!) Previously only available at Walt Disney theme parks, now they can be found in stores nationwide, or direct from the manufacturer.
