  • great gift!

    For those of you, like me, who have a hard time visualizing dimensions simply by numbers, I want to tell you that this item is only a bit bigger that an egg. However, it is beautiful!!! The delicacy of the carvings is wonderful. The small-ness makes for great decorating without over crowding as well as a conversation starter.

  • Different quality between items

    I bought two of these as christmas gifts and of course played with each before giving them away. The quality between the two was vastly different. the one was beautiful and all the pieces fit perfectly, but the other was very loose (the pieces almost just fell apart when you were trying to take it apart or put it back together). The one that was good quality was a beautiful piece to have out, but the one with very loose pieces just looked funny sitting out on a table as it looked like it would fall apart if someone touched it. I ended up gifting the good quality one and kept the worse one for myself as i wouldnt have given it as a gift and am too lazy to return it.

  • Beautiful craftsmanship!

    Bought as a present for my husband's grandfather...but my husband saw it first! Now, I'm shopping for granddad again! Love that it is handmade, carving is beautiful.It is a small piece, but if you read the description of the product, you'll know that in advance. The fact that it is small makes it more valuable as a craft---intricacy is difficult to attain with wood, and even moreso at a small scale.Will be ordering more, when available!

  • Unique item

    I was concerned about quality after reading a few reviews. After receiving the item and taking it apart, I am comfortable giving it as a gift. The puzzle comes with a little paper handout that mentions the Cambodian Rehab group that made it. I think I will print out more on them and give with the gift.

  • Great Cause, Great Gift!

    This puzzle is a fabulous conversation piece, decorative piece and entertainment all in one attractive little package. The price was excellent and I ended up purchasing three; one as a gift for someone who is difficult to buy for, one as a gift for a puzzle lover and one for myself. The puzzle itself is beautiful and makes a unique gift but that is made even better by the story behind it and the obvious craftsmanship. Any way that you can support a worthy cause makes you feel better about the gift you're giving and it also makes it a better gift to receive. I would highly recommend this to anyone and I will most likely purchase similar items in the future as gifts... and for myself!

    Small and too intricate for a three year old. Plan to give the puzzle to an adult. Looks quite sturdy.
