So, if you're an oldtime Wrebbit Puzz-3D lover, but are getting confused between the Wrebbit 3D and Puzz-3D puzzles from Winning Solutions, here's the story as I understand it. The original Puzz-3D foam puzzles were created by a company in Montreal called Wrebbit. They created a lot of puzzles throughout the '90s, and were eventually purchased by Hasbro in 2005. Hasbro took over the manufacturing and moved it to the US, and then in 2006, they discontinued the line. In 2011, the Hasbro line was brought back into production from Winning Solutions, and they've been reprinting the older designs ever since.
However. Back in Montreal, all the old employees and original Puzz 3D designers reformed the Wrebbit company in 2012, and these new Wrebbit 3D puzzles are theirs. Their emphasis is on larger and more complex puzzles, so if these might be too challenging for you, the older classic designs from Winning Solutions may be more your thing. :)
Great puzzle. Pieces fit nice and snug. The pieces are easy to discern whether they'll fit correctly or incorrectly despite the 950 pieces included in the puzzle. The curvature portion is a bit tough to bring to a proper "holding" position though, but not unachievable with little effort. Also, the manual is not necessary although it can be helpful. This puzzle can be entirely put together by looking at the image on the box.
The only negative I would comment on is that amount of additional, non-puzzle pieces which are included in the box. These are non-essential to putting the puzzle together yet it seems like there are a couple of hundred of them that have to be weeded out before you can honestly start putting the puzzle together.
Overall, I would recommend this item.
I bought two of the Wrebbit puzzles as a Christmas gift for my pre-teen, who is fascinated by architecture right now. She wanted to do the Neuschwanstein Castle first, and we just wrapped up with the Taj Mahal. As others have mentioned, there is a lot of scrap foam in the box that needs to be weeded out as you are laying out the pieces. (We kept the scraps in the box, and sealed it with tape. Combing through the box later turned up two "missing" pieces.) I could have saved us a bit of time if I had simply read the directions before we started on the first puzzle. The directions are mostly in French though, as the puzzle is made in Quebec/Montreal. There is a handy diagram of all the puzzle pieces and how they fit together in the instructions. The puzzles take up a considerable amount of room, so for the second puzzle I made sure we started on a larger table. Give yourself plenty of time to complete these puzzles, especially if this is going to be used for a school project. The...
