      Disadvantages

      Great for children and partially sighted people, a bit dull for the rest of us

      I used to enjoy helping my grandmother with jigsaw puzzles, but this one annoyed me at times. On the plus side it is ideal for those who are partially sighted, because the puzzle itself is large, and so are the pieces (256 in total). They are also thicker than usual, so there is little danger of a knobbly bit breaking off and ending up in your tea cup.

      On the down side, I don't believe the puzzle presents particularly good value for money. For £14.99 you could purchase a nice juicy jigsaw that you could root around with for hours, but the Chocolate Box Bigsaw can easily be completed in a fraction of that time. There was something about the image that irked me, too. I think the idea is that the consumer is supposed to be tempted by the various sweet treats it depicts, but for me some of them were a little too reminiscent of novelty buttons. There's also just too much BROWN, but then again I suppose this makes finding the correct piece a little trickier.

      In conclusion, I wasn't particularly fond of this Bigsaw, but then again I'm not the target consumer. This product is intended for children, and if you know a youngster with a sweet tooth and a penchant for grand scale games this might be right up their street.

    A unique type of puzzle featuring larger thicker pieces. This makes it ideal for the partially sighted - or for anyone who likes big piece puzzles!
