The pieces feel a little like leather in your hand, so soothing if you can get that from a puzzle piece! Very high quality puzzle. My daughter tried to take it, but I caught her in the act. Lol. Easy to do, fun to do, very relaxing. I do puzzles all the time and this is my favorite.
The weight & feel of the pieces is true luxury. They "click" together & stay in place. You can tell the puzzle has been thoughtfully designed beyond the clever artwork. We finished our first one & wanted the full set!
