Cloudberries is a Swedish-English company and the creator of some very interesting jigsaw puzzles. They're pretty new on the scene, but their puzzles are causing quite a stir. We decided to give Cloudberries a look to see if their puzzles really do live up to the buzz they're generating and to discover for ourselves whether the user experience from building one of these puzzles might justify adding them to Odyssey Fine Puzzle's family of brands. We selected their Celestial puzzle for our test build, and sure enough, we were quite impressed. These puzzles are simply fantastic. The pieces are as high a quality as you'll find anywhere (they're manufactured in Europe). They have a non-gloss finish which we really enjoyed, and they fit together perfectly. The backing is made from the highest quality blue chipboard, and even the box stands out for the quality of its construction and sleek design (see the picture to the left).
Cloudberries describes themselves as being a designer of jigsaw puzzles for adults, making cool, handsome puzzles that you'll want to hang on your wall. We'll leave it to you to decide whether they have succeeded with this, but certainly no one can question the originality of their work. The only caveat we feel necessary to attach to our recommendation is that these puzzles can be challenging. Our Celestial building experience ranked higher on the difficulty scale than most of the puzzles we test, and though this might be concerning to some, we found it richly rewarding. And fun! We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
