Gaaf design, zak kan beter

Gaaf design van 2020. The puzzle says it all! Super goed idee van de zak! Minder plek in de volle spelletjes kast en klein pakketje zo. Puzzelen vanuit een doos is wel prettig, maar ik pak er gewoon een andere doos bij, spelletjes en dus dozen genoeg. Andere puzzels hebben wel een stevigere zak, ik ben bang dat deze naar een paar keer verplaatsen kapot scheurt.

Leuke puzzel voor tijdens de lockdown

Ik heb heel veel plezier gehad tijdens het leggen van deze puzzel, zo origineel met al die referenties naar 2020. Gaat ook heel leuk worden om deze over een paar jaar weer eens opnieuw te doen! Kleine minpuntjes: de kwaliteit was wat minder, een beetje dunner/kartonnig dan de puzzels die ik normaal heb. De verpakking zag er leuk uit, maar is niet herbruikbaar. De zak was bij aankomst al iets beschadigd en de plakstrip is zo sterk, dat de zak bij openen nog verder is gescheurd. Ik heb er dus wel speciaal een doos voor moeten kopen. Hoewel ik de puzzel zelf heel leuk vind, zou ik daarom toch niet snel de andere puzzels kopen.

Puzzle in a bag

Hoi Milca! Dankjewel voor je review over onze 2020 puzzel. We hebben jou luid en duidelijk gehoord en hebben dus ook onze zakken geüpdated. Zouden wij jou kunnen plezieren met zo'n nieuwe zak? AL onze volgende puzzels zitten in zo'n nieuwe zak, zodat je dit probleem zeker niet meer zal hebben. Ook ons karton is sinds de Hollywood puzzel volledig vernieuwd! Groetjes, Het PIAB-team

De puzzel heruitgevonden.

Een puzzel hoort in een doos? Neen, niet dus. Bizar hoe een zak toch je hele ervaring kan veranderen. Op zich blijft de puzzel ervaring zelf hetzelfde. Alleen is dit leuke ontwerp samen met de vele referenties naar het oh, zo bizarre 2020 ge-wel-dig. Op de foto zelf kan je al enkele grote items herkennen. Tijdens het puzzelen moet je soms lachen om de kleine hints die erin zitten rond 2020. Het is geen al te moeilijke puzzel van 1000 stukjes. Dit zorgt ervoor dat het puzzelen plezierig blijft.
