First to complete!Jul 02, 2007
By Scott Slater
Hello, just wanted to write to say what a wonderful experience we had putting this puzzle together. My wife and I have done many large jigsaw puzzles over the years but this one was the most memorable. The puzzle measures 428cm x 157cm (4.28m x 1.57m) or 168.5in x 61.8in (14' .5" x 5' 1.8"). It comes in 4 separate bags of 6000 pieces each. We assembled it one section at a time but you can mix all the sections together if you want to. We received the puzzle in early May and started construction on Mother's Day (May 13th, 2007) and finished it on June 16th, 2007. It took us 34 days!! Working primarily after work and weekends, it took us approx 400 man hours to complete. That's 200 hours for each of us. According to the www.worldslargestpuzzle.com website we were the first to complete it. I highly recommend attempting this puzzle if you feel you are up to it. I have a website that documents the our construction with lots of pictures if your interested. www.aegroup.com/puzzle. Good Luck!

Crazy puzzle!!Nov 28, 2007
My family and I bought this for my mom for Christmas and we're all huge puzzle fans. It is an insane puzzle. We built a special table to do this puzzle on. $80 in plywood and a few hours later the table was made and we have begun to sort puzzle pieces on paper plates by color and what we think is on the piece.
The box is huge and has little string/rope handles on the side to assist you in lifting it and there are four bags inside, I'm assuming 6000 pieces per bag. They are nice, quality pieces but I must make sure to keep my puppy away from them. They aren't strong enough to last in her mouth very long.
The puzzle isn't finished yet, but we're taking pictures of the progress and will hopefully post finished pictures on Amazon.com when the puzzle is complete.
I highly recommend for any puzzle freak like my family and I! :P

LIFE and CHALLENGEDec 15, 2009
By Dorothy A. Day
Got this puzzle after seeing another large puzzle at a store which did not interest me so found this one and through it not only looked challenging (which it is) but also colorful and something the family would enjoy for a long time to come. We as a family are not done with the puzzle as the holidays only bring us together for short periods but we do enjoy the time together working on this puzzle and it has been fun for the entire family from 5 to 55!

A wonderful challeneg!Oct 08, 2010
By Stephanie Jackson
This puzzle has been great to work on. My husband and I have been working on it for 2 years now. We work on them in the wintertime (we live in Wisconsin, those winters can be long and cold). It is a beautiful puzzle, and better than many larger volume piece size puzzles than we have done in the past. There are many "mini puzzles" to work on with in the larger one. We are looking forward to the day when we can put it all together and state that we have completed it!

Amazingly fun and challengingMar 29, 2013
By P. Weiss
"Pennyweiss the Clown"
I purchased the Life puzzle on July 22, 2010, after spending more than six months looking and drooling over the Hall of Fame section of the puzzle's website. The 100 or so stories that I read of people all over the world completing this monumental puzzle really inspired me to want to do it too. I am still working on it, as "Life" got in the way....a five month old baby (who is now 3 years old!), a huge life changing move from Fl to GA, and many other smaller life events in between. However, I must say this puzzle is the most fun and most challenging one I've ever worked on. The sheer size of it is challenging enough, but the beauty of the artwork itself makes it worth it in my opinion anyway. I love that there is so much to look at in the puzzle. The huge variety in colors and textures really helps to make this puzzle not as difficult as one would think. You can't really get too bored with it as there's always another picture element you can work on if you get tired of one particular color for a while. I recently completed Section 1 and now I'm working on Section 2. I have a blog if anyone is interested in checking it out about my progress on the puzzle. You can find it at http://pennysjigsawblog.blogspot.com. I highly recommend this puzzle to any puzzle enthusiast as it is a challenge, but certainly a rewarding one when you see the gorgeous, finished product. Just remember the biggest key to a puzzle of this size and complexity -- sort, sort, and SORT some more! You can't sort enough....by color, by texture element, by shape, etc. I combined all three in my sorting and it helped tremendously.
