Spider-Man goes to pieces

Posted: May 17th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: | 2 Comments »

So I found this in one of the neighborhood thrift shops yesterday.


The box is pretty banged up, with the edges worn down and fuzzy, and one corner flaps open since whatever glue held it down is long gone. Surprinsingly, though, the pieces themselves are in good shape, and the color is astonishingly fresh considering how old this Spider-Man jigsaw puzzle must be. I mean, c’mon, a Whitman puzzle?! And I’m guessing that’s some classic John Romita Spidey art being used for the image. Not bad for a buck.

I did a quick count and most of the pieces seem to be there; could ALL of the pieces still be in this worn-out box? I’ll track the progress as this puzzle comes together, and we’ll find out together. Keep your fingers crossed!

    Do they still even make puzzles anymore? it seems like such quaint entertainment compared to, you know, an iPad.

    I do see puzzles in the toy aisles, but they tend to be aimed at adults or, if they are for kids, really small. It’s hard to see in the picture, but this is a 200-piece puzzle. I’d consider that on the smaller side, but I still have a hard time seeing any kids I know actually sitting down to work on it.

    I’m pretty sure their attention and patience would run out in … whoops, there they go.
