On our visit to Franschhoek from Johannesburg, my wife and I purchased one of your puzzles for our son (11 years) at the Franschhoek Flea Market on Sunday. I would like to compliment you on an innovative and outstanding product (my son loved it). We as a family have enjoyed solving the puzzle over the last two nights, and we are discussing which puzzle to order next. I will reach out shortly. Once again well done. – Ryan

I can’t tell you what an incredible success your puzzle has been! Thank you so much.

Hello Linda, I brought this one off you at the wine weekend Saturday Market in Greyton. Now just. Completed I simply have to write to you and tell you how brilliant an assembly it has been. Your animals, located in just the right places are just wonderful. Many, such as the crocodile and gorilla did not appear until suddenly legs were attached to something that did not look in the least like a head. I should know my African outline by now, but for several days the outline of Tunisia and Algeria were pretending to be Cape Town…although the camel and crocodile did throw me. I did not actually complete the outline up by Cairo until close to the end….now that is a sign of a great puzzle.

I have to confess I set out all the animals…or those that were obvious…on one side and hoped to complete the puzzle without them, slotting them in afterwards. Not a hope I quickly realised.

I do love the design of the rivers. It provides zero help with assembly but a magnificent education when completed. And I now understand the huge grasshopper in the middle teardrop. It is all so wonderfully thought out. It must have taken you ages too create. Do you do the laser cutting yourself?

We are down in South Africa as “swallows” escaping the English winter, and it was such a surprise and delight to find you in the market. I am an avid puzzler….of wooden puzzles, not cardboard, from the U.K. and have been all my life, mostly early 20th c puzzles in mahogany right up to modern commissions on birch ply. I don’t normally like laser cuts, but recently DaVici from Russia and Liberty from the States have created some wonderful whimsies ranking alongside yours. They do theirs on ply, which in some ways is nicer to handle because it is thicker, but may not work for some of the fine detail that you have used for legs and feet, etc.

I really just wanted to say “thank you” for this really talented creation. It is a work of art, a great tease, and provides hours of puzzling thought.

Good wishes.

Do not be misled by the low number of pieces. This puzzle is NOT for young children, it’s for jigsaw puzzle enthusiasts who want to do something challenging and FUN.

FUN is in capitals for a reason….. this is the first time that I have done a jigsaw when just about every time I pulled a few more pieces out of the bag (yes, all the pieces are presented in a colourful bag) I found a smile come over my face…..rather like when one does a crossword puzzle and you get in touch with the compiler through an ingenious clue……

‘Ingenious’ is a good word for this puzzle. This is a complex wooden puzzle, an unusual commodity when most puzzles are cardboard.

None of the pieces are regular shapes, most of them are whimsies, the rest are all convoluted unique pieces.

Then there were some added nuances, as when connecting 2 pieces,   a perfect hyena appeared. A few more pieces elsewhere brought a crocodile into view…..or a mouse with a very long tail….. FUN… or what?…..

Then individual whimsies such as a tortoise, guinea fowl and bird, have been created incorporating aspects of the colourful design of the rhino, resulting in the creatures looking stand-alone authentic. WOW!! 

A big benefit of this puzzle is that it is compact. I have been doing jigsaw puzzles for most of my life, PUZZELIZE is right up there with the Rolls Royce brands like Wentworth.

Meanwhile in Bright, Victoria, Australia these happy little puzzlers Oliver, Alex and Josh throughly enjoyed their Rhino project helped buy their father Gary. Grandad Rob Cox in Cape Town reports that this proved to be an excellent family gift.

This is a magnificent puzzle, with fine details. I enjoyed how the little animal bird and plant shapes make up the puzzle, and yet are hardly discernable when it is completed. It is a beautiful masterpiece.

The butterfly was given by Elmarie Botha as a gift to her son’s girlfriend. Elmarie says that Manon Narcy is addicted to building puzzles. Manon says, ‘The butterfly is remarkable, like building a poem.’
