high quality puzzle, with the right amount of challenge. super fun to assemble! will definitely buy others (already started on mars!!)
I present to you... Earth! This was a challenging but enjoyable puzzle from Blue Kazoo. There were some whacky shapes that I’ve never seen before, and the unique shapes meant there were no false fits (which are the absolute worst). And good thing too, since some parts of the puzzle were darker and hard to figure with color alone. I had so much fun putting this together, and would definitely do their Moon/Sun puzzle too.
We're still looking forward to diving into this puzzle, but the timing's got to be right. We've enjoyed thousand piece puzzles on vacation in summers past, but this year, for the second time, we went nowhere. I bought the Earth puzzle thinking that at least we can recreate that summer vacation vibe right here at home. Right now I have it mind for a snowed-in winter weekend...if we can wait that long!
Well, I completed this one a few months ago and it almost drove me crazy, but I LOVED it. Only puzzle I have ever put on the wall. I recently purchased Earth and I am sure it will be as interesting and intriguing.
I've done several Blue Kazoo puzzles now, and the space nerd in me loved the MOON, SUN and EARTH series. I started with the MOON and then had to buy the other two. I have now done the MOON and the SUN (saved the EARTH because I think it will be the easiest). I will say... the SUN was pretty hard - harder than I expected for sure and definitely harder than the MOON. These particular puzzles are super cool due to the round shape. The SUN took me two weeks (much longer than my average for a 1,000 piece puzzle, and longer than the MOON took for sure) and was indeed quite the challenge. The puzzle is tough because the color is so similar and "molten lava-y" across most of the puzzle. And it's tough to really discern what belongs where since there aren't a ton of defining features to use as landmarks. But through persistence and hard work, it all came together! As usual, all the pieces were there, they all fit where they were supposed to, and the completed puzzle was solid enough that I could pick it up off the table in one piece. But I will say that unlike other Blue Kazoo puzzles, I did think it was a little harder to tell immediately if you had a piece in the right place. Part of that was due to it all being mostly the same color/pattern. But I do think part of it might have been due to the cut of the puzzle. It seemed slightly less accurate than usual, and I did find myself constantly turning over sets of two pieces to see if the piece REALLY fit there or if I was wrong. But overall, a true challenge for any puzzler and very fun for those of us who are gluttons for puzzle punishment. EARTH, you are next! Also, I see that they just released MARS ... but after doing both the SUN and the RED puzzle from the Impossible series, I just am not sure I am up for a third 1,000-piece red puzzle!!!!! Blue Kazoo - please do the non-red planets (including Pluto please because Pluto should still be a planet!). I will buy them all!
Bought the Earth, Moon, Sun set. Started on Earth and the other puzzles were quickly “borrowed” by my Grandchildren. I’ll be ordering more puzzles soon. Maybe I’ll order the Impossible puzzle.
This is a challenge. But I will get it.
More challenging than I thought. Taking on yellow pieces first and found the center piece! Great quality thick pieces with vivid colors…ok mostly red. Why must you tempt me with more awesome puzzles like the red planet?
I'm looking forward to putting this together!
My husband and I had a blast putting this puzzle together. What felt overwhelming at first turned into a fun challenge. My job really interfered with my puzzle solving. I couldn’t wait to get home so we could work on it! Will definitely buy a puzzle from Blue Kazoo again.
Received my puzzle series, it's going to be a good winter! Looking forward to a rewarding / frustrating experience! Thanks Blue Kazoo!
It has been the most changing puzzle my wife and I have done together but with that we know it will be the most rewarding also
Getting ready to put the earth back together
Such a pretty puzzle but also possibly the most difficult puzzle I’ve done. Almost no puzzle dust which is great. The pieces are super funky, I love it so much. Very satisfied with my purchase and will definitely be buying more from Blue Kazoo!!
Such fun puzzles! Also a challenge, which is nice when you go through 1000 piece square puzzles quickly! Amazing quality and quick shipping!
I purchased this puzzle as a Christmas gift for a friend. I know he will love it because he has always loved puzzles.
This puzzle is so daunting but so cool at the same time. It’s going to be so awesome when I’m done. I also bought the earth and moon. This is really challenging but I’ve always liked a challenge.
Shipping was relatively quick. Puzzles look good in the box. Haven't even started on one yet. It will be awhile until I get to them.
Definitely haven't finished it yet but love it so far. Even the cats want to get involved!
We haven’t worked on a puzzle in decades and the Blue Kazoo Earth series was a great way to restart. The puzzles are obviously high quality, the graphics are excellent and the assembly has been challenging. Thank you.
My table isn't wide enough :( I gotta trouble shoot, but excited to get working on it!
Loved putting this together!!! Can’t wait to get my next one. : ) As a teacher headed back to school (Monday) this was a very therapeutic way to end my summer!
The Sun puzzle is hard, but beautiful!
Great family time together! Ten days in and getting ready to put the finishing touches on. Glue, frame, and hang! Take α couple weeks off and then start up on the Moon! Love the circular aspect of the puzzle with new unique cuts. Very challenging! Looking forward to the next puzzle already!
Great ordering experience and super fast delivery! Will definitely order again but it may take us a few years to put these 3 puzzles together! They are hard but fun!
Great picture, awesome quality, & great service.
What. A. BLAST. We are going to be doing the moon next, then the sun. What a lovely FUN (and hard) puzzle.
Two down, one to go ... I started with the sun and had to put it aside; it was hard. The earth was somewhat easy but still challenging. I went back to the sun and finally finished it. Time to start the moon.
My husband and I had so much fun working on this puzzle! It was a blast, and we can’t wait to work on the moon puzzle next.
Phenomenal gift for a puzzle lover!
Lovely puzzle to put together. A few pieces have some mild fraying on the underside, but all in all it has been super fun to put together so far.
Wow! This was amazing. The hardest was the sun. The earth took getting used to as it was my first circular puzzle. The moon went quicker now I was comfortable with the pieces but was harder. And oh my!!! The sun. Finally finished. Great to have different levels of difficulty.
Awesome puzzle! Difficult but not impossible!
Only have the moon done so far, but the quality is fantastic
Well packaged and beautifully designed, the Earth, Moon and Sun puzzles are challenging yet compelling! Now we eat dinner on the floor. : )
It's yet not done at all, but it's so much fun getting there. But however it's a not that simple, so one nee to be patient. And look, how pretty the moon is :-)
My kids room is space themed so this fit perfectly for them! All 3 are hanging up now. I love the quality of the puzzles, the pieces are more sturdy than the standard puzzle and I feel like the cuts are a lot cleaner. Overall, I’ve loved all of the puzzles from this company. I have the red, black, and white ones in my to do pile, as well as the gradient rainbow puzzles. And I might have just ordered the new galaxy series as well....
Love the picture quality and the pieces are sturdy and fit together well. Can't wait to see what they develop next!
What a great puzzle. It is well made, the pieces fit snugly, the picture is crisp and beautiful, and the shape is unique. It wasn't easy, but not impossible to do. It is larger than the typical 1000 piece puzzle due to the shape. We just finished Earth, which has a unique perspective on the planet. We look forward to doing the other two in the set: moon and sun. Cheers to Blue Kazoo for creating great puzzles.
Great puzzle tons of fun picture is so crisp and clear it’s like your looking at the moon through a telescope!!!!
We haven't opened them yet, but we are excited to put them together this summer (Countdown: End of May)! The packaging is very clean and neat!
Hands down the most fun puzzle I've ever done!
I bought these puzzles to add to my family room decor. All of the puzzles were both fun and challenging. I started with the Earth, which turned out to be the easiest. Then I completed the moon. The sun, the most challenging of all, was completed last and took me several weeks. I couldn’t be happier with the end result on the wall.
Absolutely beautiful and challenging! Can’t wait to do another one!
I am loving it!! The picture is so crisp and perfect def going to get the others in this collection!!! Great puzzle!
Thank you Blue Kazoo! I'm so excited to start my first round puzzle! The sun puzzle is definitely going to be a challenge and I look forward to it. Thank you so much for your excellent customer service as well. Yall are awesome!
This puzzle is hard.
One of the hardest puzzles. I said “if I can do 5 pieces a day, then only will take 200 days. Lol” but I did get it done in one month
Haven’t started these just yet, but if they’re anything as great as the color gradient collection, I’ll def love them! Can’t wait!
These are some of the best jigsaw puzzles I ever assembled. Good quality pieces, variety of shapes, round design presents additional challenge. Earth, Sun and Moon set looked so beautiful, I framed them and hang on the wall.
This was super fun and a bit of a mind trip as the perspective was different than what we are used to seeing on a map. This was just challenging enough to not be frustrating and kept us engaged for hours at a time. We’re already starting our next puzzle form Bluekazoo!
Real nice puzzle. The whole presentation is actually really nice. The puzzle itself, the box, there’s a poster and a nice card. I did this one casually and it only took me two nights. If you’re colorblind it may prove to be more of a challenge.
Enjoyed putting this together. Challenging.
This puzzle was a doozy but a ton of fun! I worked on it throughout the day when I had breaks for about a week. And then a solid few hours over the weekend. So many of the pieces have the same color pattern that you have to really pay attention. And the finished piece is beautiful and huge!
Wow, such a good puzzle! Honestly my new favorite - challenging but not mind-numbingly so, and the piece shapes are varied enough to be really helpful solving the more monochrome sections
Challenging and gorgeous. These are great quality puzzles.
This was such a fun, beautiful puzzle! It was challenging but not too bad. It took my dad and I three sit-downs to complete it, a few hours each time. I will definitely be getting more!
I had to adapt my puzzle table to hold it. It is hard but I am enjoying it.

Such a beautiful and challenging puzzle. We love it!
This is the greatest, worst puzzle I’ve ever worked. Or the worst greatest puzzle.... it’s been a real challenge! I’ve NEVER worked this many hours on a puzzle but I love this one!
Most challenging puzzle yet but having so much fun doing it. Started with the Sun of the Earth, Sun, Moon series as I thought the brightness of the colors would help during this depressing year. So far so good.
All done! I am warning you! It’s super addictive! You’re gonna stick to it until it’s done and then your brain rests
Started with the sun, bad idea it took 4 weeks at 2-2.5hrs a day/1-person. Looks amazing when complete but the hardest of the 3. Finished earth next took a week. Again amazing image for a puzzle. My last one is the moon and I am a week into it so far,should finish it in about 3 weeks, at my 2-2.5hrs a day rate. Mod podded each one and I am going to resin them and mount them all. Image is amazing when finished. Can't wait for the galaxy series next!
LOVED IT! It took us two weeks to complete as a family but we all loved it! Initially it was just for me and my sister but the whole family ended up joining in lmao, we can't wait to hang it up
slowly but surely the sun is starting to shine ! difficult and entertaining which is how i like it ! can’t wait to work on the others.
Very challenging puzzle
This puzzle was extraordinary to do! Some people claim it’s “impossible” but it’s not. You can do this! Nothing is more satisfying than finding a piece that fits. Onto the moon!!
We really enjoyed the full earth puzzle. We regularly do 550 piecers so this 1000 was a challenge, but not more than we could handle. We loved the realistic satellite image and the more we worked at it, the more we thought how much better that was than a drawn map. We expect to do this puzzle again and again through the years.
This was the hardest puzzle I have ever done, but it was so worth it! I have loved every puzzle I have ordered and plan on framing this one for my classroom!
I am addicted! This puzzle is beautiful, different, difficult great quality!
Very high quality. I've ordered puzzles from a few places during the pandemic, and Blue Kazoo is the best by far. They're the only company I'd order online from again. Looking forward to more puzzle designs.
Bought the set as a Christmas present to myself. Little did I know, my family actually enjoyed the Earth puzzle too! We are excited to do the Sun next, then finally the Moon (hardest one?). Thanks Blue Kazoo for the beautiful works of art!
Just started the first one. Why did I pick the moon first? Very challenging. Am loving it.
Working on Earth and it is a challenge!!
I ordered the puzzle 10 days before Christmas hoping to make it a New Years gift. The package didn't arrive well into January, and when I checked the tracking number, apparently the package was never dispatched. I contacted support and they sent promptly sent another one, but the gift is already ruined.
Addictive, calming, beautiful. I am 100 percent certain the cat ran off with the last piece.
I am an avid puzzle maker. I have a couple I have even framed in my house. I have made two sided puzzles that have same picture on both sides with one of them rotated 90 degrees. I have purchased both the earth and moon puzzles. The quality of the puzzles is excellent. I have been working on the earth puzzle for a week and have only 10% of it completed. You needed a dedicated space to work as it is going to take some time to complete. Good luck.
Ok, so here is my saga. I pre-ordered these puzzles when I first saw them and they arrived several months later (and later than expected, but hard to predict with the pandemic!). I started with the Sun picture which was extremely challenging and took me far too long. It was missing a piece to start and then my dog spirited away several more pieces. Blue Kazoo was awesome enough to send a new puzzle which I went through and found the missing pieces (although seemed to be cut slightly different), and I was able to glue and frame it. Next I did the earth puzzle in a few hours and it was great. Finally did the Moon puzzle and I'm still stuck. It was missing 2 pieces from the beginning. I requested a new puzzle, and when finally ended up buying a new one, still couldn't find the pieces. Asked Blue Kazoo and they sent me another puzzle. We went through the box piece by piece 4 times and couldn't find the pieces. Finally just shoving some in there so I can glue and frame and be done. Overall these puzzles were extremely challenging (except the earth was super easy and fun) and I recommend. But a bit frustrating with the missing pieces for sure for those that bought them to frame.
I just started my puzzle and it will be challenging. This is my first “grown-up” puzzle. I’ve been looking for something to frame and display and the pieces are beautiful and well made. I’m looking forward to putting it together. I got the set and started with The Moon. A circular puzzle is definitely different and interesting.
Great quality. Seriously hard ( in a good way!). This may take awhile; I’ve been working on it for almost 2 weeks
Well... this puzzle was just about the perfect diversion for the weeks after Christmas while our family was stuck inside during the cold and COVID-avoiding. Almost tragically, we couldn't complete the outside due to a missing end piece on the very first night.... but moved onwards, convinced we would find it in the 100s of pieces left we were working on. Alas, it became clear it was not on the table. Checked under cabinets, in vacuum cleaner bin, in clothes worn while working on puzzle... but it didn't turn up. We finished the puzzle, albeit missing one end piece. I was going to write to Blue Kazoo support because we were very very careful and I couldn't believe they would package only 999/1000 pieces... but then... the next day, in picking up the dining room chairs in order to vacuum, the missing piece appeared. It had been sitting underneath one of the chair legs the whole time. The Earth puzzle, now complete, is a masterpiece. Very challenging puzzle... we both dread and look forward to taking on the Moon puzzle... and if possible to complete that one, the Sun, which looks to be the most difficult.
We love hard puzzles. Once we open them we no longer look at the picture on the box. Makes it harder that way. Really enjoying the earth series - have only the moon to go. :-)
Great puzzles. Very challenging. Unique. Love it!
I really like the puzzle, but wonder just what I was thinking when I bought it. I've never attempted such a difficult puzzle, and trying to figure out a way to approach it is really twisting my brain into a different kind of puzzle. It's difficult, but so satisfying every time I put two pieces together.
Challenging to say the least. I think I can I think I can! I am determined because I love the picture of Earth.
Puzzles are my meditation. I discovered Blue Kazoo before Christmas and this was a gift to myself. I bought the series with the Sun, Moon and Earth and you can see where I started. These quality puzzles are challenging, beautiful and I cannot wait to work my way through all their puzzles!
Really fun puzzle. Got it over the holidays and had lots of enjoyment putting it together.
This was so fun to do! Beautiful picture and high quality jigsaw pieces.
I ordered the Earth series and am I glad I did. They arrived packaged very well and the boxes were in perfect shape. I wish I could be working on them now, but it’ll have to wait until after my winter exile in another state. I love the size of these puzzles, and once I get them assembled, they’ll be going on my wall. The Earth series would make an incredible gift for any puzzle lover out there. Once I finish them, I’ll be back on this site to post some pictures.
one of the most difficult puzzles ive completed. Challenging yet rewarding!
Bought this for my wife who flies through typical 1000 piece puzzles in a few hours. Not this time. She was pleasantly challenged and loved the quality of the pieces.
My mom absolutely loved the moon puzzle. She said this was the most difficult puzzles she has done and spent about 5 days working on it for several hours a day! The puzzle came with an accidental(?) extra edge piece which initially made it that much harder for her hahaha. I feel bad who ever was missing this piece!
I am very happy with the overall quality of the puzzle (the Earth) and the imagery is beautiful. It was a fun challenging putting together the round format with the unique shapes of some of the pieces! The pieces fit together perfectly and were all in great shape. The only downside and the only reason my rating isn't 5 stars is that it appears we were missing a piece. We've searched everywhere around our puzzle table and can't find it so we think it wasn't in the box from the start. Other than that brief disappointment at the end, we had a great time putting the puzzle together and are excited to move on to the next one (the Sun).
This puzzle was hard. My wife loved it.
While I love the design of the puzzles, I had to remove a star for the unbelievably poor customer service that I experienced with the Blue Kazoo team. I ordered the Earth puzzle as a gift for my parents for Christmas and had it delivered to my home to include in a larger holiday package. However, once I opened the box, I realized that I had received the Sun puzzle in error. In contacting the BK team, I was initially encouraged just to accept the Sun puzzle with a discount code for a future purchase (not ideal - I had ordered the Earth puzzle specifically as it would certainly be the one my parents would be most excited to receive). Once we finally sorted out that I should be shipped the actual item that I ordered and paid for, I requested that the puzzle be sent directly to their address in order to make it before Christmas, but my request was completely ignored; there was never even an apology for missing that detail nor any follow-up communication besides "we've shipped you the correct item, finally." I was initially very excited to find this company and looked forward to ordering some of the gradient puzzles for myself and friends, but I certainly won't be shopping from Blue Kazoo again. Customer service is a difficult thing to get right, but service recovery shouldn't be and they really dropped the ball on this one. So, if you want a puzzle and don't care which one you actually receive, or how you're treated in the process, order away! Otherwise, I'd do some further Googling for a equally fine product from a company that places a higher value on the experience of their customers.
Hard but worth it! Many hours of family fun and conversation with this puzzle. Can’t wait to start on the Moon and then it’s on to the Sun!
