I received my puzzle in its little cardboard box in another shipping box that protected it and it was not damaged at all when received. This puzzle is awesome and will be spectacular once I get it completed. It is a stress reliever - honestly even though there are a bunch of plain white pieces. The pieces are precisely cut the print is great quality.
After a very emotional week, I finally sat down to do this puzzle and get in a better head space. Staring thoughtfully at intricate details of 2 of my favorite paintings has made such a positive impact on my heart. Thank you for a beautiful design.
There was some wailing and gnashing of teeth, but it was very satisfying to complete it. Beautiful!
All the fun possible with a brand new puzzle.
What a beautiful challenge this was. I feel like this puzzle and I really connected in the many hours that we spent together. The precise pieces were satisfying to snap in. It drove me to research puzzle-doing hacks and I learned how to organize all the piece shapes. I’m ordering a couple more because a couple days after finishing it, my extraordinary and loved son died in a rock climbing fall. These weeks afterward have been intensely emotional and it’s been difficult to focus. I need something that helps me get meditative and in a flow. We used to do puzzles together too, so it brings me good memories. Please tell Abraham that his tiktok is wonderful and is how I learned of Blue Kazoo. https://www.washburn-mcreavy.com/m/obituaries/Mitchell-Rognrud/Memories?fbclid=IwAR33J_yYgiIqGBfmQAgjz7y51dYeGKbqR-OMjqCOqdMdGu8fDlaST37hdK8 I do realize this is an unusual way to do a review, but you seem to be down with unusual.

Received as a gift. Wasn't stoked about the image since I'd recently worked EuroGraphics version of The Great Wave. But this mashup is a very different puzzle and Blue Kazoo made me a believer with their quality. Planning to order the Earth series very soon!
This puzzle has been so much fun to put together. The pieces fit beautifully, and the art is lovely to look at.

I appreciate the effort from Blue Kazoo’s team by accommodating purchases from Malaysia. Eventhough it took a month to reach here, I’m really happy to get the box. I love the texture of the puzzle pieces! I wanna enjoy my time now. Hopefully, I got to purchase the earth series.
Love this puzzle! My son sent it to me for my birthday and I need suggestions on the best way to frame it. I want to frame it and give it back to him for his bedroom. Thanks for any suggestions.
Bought the Sun, Moon and Earth~then Starry Wave!
Waiting for my best friend to visit, from California, the middle of April, now that we are both vaccinated.
Loved this puzzle! The completed puzzle is such a beautiful image that it will be framed and hung up on my wall to be enjoyed for years to come! It has the perfect amount of challenge and it is of great quality - no puzzle dust, sturdy pieces! This is one of my favorite puzzles! Looking forward to doing more from this company!!!!
Starry Night/Wave: A truly great puzzle. A combination of two of my favorite paintings up close so one can really see how they were painted. One can really see how the Van Gogh was painted as all the brush strokes confuse each piece. And The Great Wave of Kanagawa so beautifully anticipates modern fractal geometry's while matching Van Gogh's swirling stars. It was a real pleasure to work on this beautifully crafted puzzle. Thank you! Warren Knox
What an amazing puzzle! I absolutely love both of these art pieces on their own, this mashup was very well done and I had such a blast working on it!
It was a pleasure to have the diversion of a challenging puzzle amidst my daily tasks, dogs, piano, other music and favorite news shows. I often wondered if my eyes were as good as they could be and the light had to be just perfect for me to see the smallest matches. Sometimes I couldn't progress and left it while others several pieces flowed together. One time I was going nowhere and as I twisted the piece in my hand it suddenly fit exactly where I was. This led me to believe there might be a certain degree of innate knowledge that comes to one occasionally where things flow in a perfect universe. Woo! Woo!
I really liked this puzzle. Each part had it's own difficulty level. The boats are the easiest, the lower part of the wave was easy, the inside of the wave was of medium difficulty, and the sky was the hardest. But the sky also had the stars and moon which were easy starting points for it. All in all, a very good puzzle with good quality pieces. And there was no puzzle piece dust when I opened it!
Finished this in about a week. The blue sky was the most difficult but if you’re not a pro (I’m def not haha) using the full print poster that came along with it was super helpful in finding small details to figure out what area the pieces go. Loved this picture and the quality of the pieces were great!
Best , challenging puzzles. Great time spent with family.
Just finished!!!! This was the most difficult puzzle I have ever done but it was so rewarding and got myself and my family away from screens and doing a project together! We can’t wait for the next one!
Very challenging puzzle but the payoff at the end is worth it!
So enjoyed doing the StarryWave puzzle. It’s Beautiful! My friend also completed one. Be aware that it will not fit into a standard 20x30 frame. The actual completed size is 20 1/2 x 29 1/2. So if you want to hang it, you’ll need a custom frame.
OMG!!! This is truly the most beautiful puzzle I’ve ever worked on!! First of all, the mashup of two classics was brilliant. Because of the unique design, it’s quite interesting to put together. But not only is it visually stunning; it’s also very well constructed with such quality material. I was fully intending to frame this once I’m done, but I’m about 3/4 of the way through it and am too sad to be “done”! Will have to break it down and redo it a few more times!! So happy with this puzzle!!
I only just recieved this puzzle and I already love it! I'm really looking forward to all the hours I get to spend on it! I'm 21 and I've never really had the chance to do puzzles but they've always looked really fun. This is the first puzzle I've ever bought before so I'm really excited to get into it! Hopefully I can update this when I've completed it!
I purchased the Starry Wave as a Christmas gift for my adult son who prefers challenging puzzles, and he really liked the puzzle - the challenge, the mashup of the two art pieces, the quality of the pieces and image, and the box. That convinced me to send a puzzle to each of my six siblings.
Wonderful puzzle! Love the combination of two great art pieces!
This Blue Kazoo puzzle, STARRY WAVE, is GORgeous! A wonderful challenge, it's a mashup of two famous pieces of art, Van Gogh's 'The Starry Night' and Hokusai's 'The Wave'. After we finished it, over a long weekend, we decided to preserve it as an art piece. We're now in the process of backing it and searching for the perfect frame, so it can live forever as the beautiful painting it really is. Well done, Blue Kazoo!

I do puzzles slowly.... so ask me in a month or so. Sister Mary
I gave this to a puzzle friend to thank her for her support. She said it was difficult, and an experience! She enjoyed the challenge and has since passed it off to another puzzle friend. Well worth the money!
This was my first Blue Kazoo puzzle. Can't wait to do them all!
This was my second Blue Kazoo puzzle purchase, the first being the Moon, which made me almost crazy with it's difficulty level. Starry Wave I thought might be a little easier...and it was, until it wasn't. The swirling brush strokes of blue and black were maddening and it took me some time to get a handle on how to tackle the problem. BUT! success was mine at last after 10 days. I was finished. Oddly enough, I was sorry to see it all end. The hours of standing and staring at hundreds of unconnected pieces, scratching my head and muttering to myself about what was I thinking when I bought this darn puzzle. Conclusion? These puzzles are fun, difficult, time consuming and good for the ol' brain to keep it thinking. Now...about that Sun puzzle. It doesn't look THAT hard. (They're coming to take me away haha!)
Blue Kazoo puzzles are such high quality! Beautiful, vibrant images and durable pieces. We can’t wait to buy the color series when it’s back in stock.
It was a gift to my brother-in-law. He loves it. Please put a gift section in your site so that when we send a puzzle as a gift they know who it is from, and for what occasion. Thank you. I tried to reach your office several times and left a message and was never called back. A friend tried to reach you by email to see who her puzzle was from and no one answered her.
It's so cool! Love it during quarantine times
I'm very excited, but I just got going. Only in the initial phases of organizing the pieces into groups to find the edges!!!
The quality is excellent! The pieces are sturdy and the colors are bright. If you love the quality of a Ravensburger puzzle, you will love Blue Kazoo puzzles too! This is the 38th puzzle I have built since April of 2020, so I am always on the lookout for well made puzzles. I am looking forward to ordering the Triangles puzzle for my next build!
I am loving working on this puzzle ❣️
Beautiful puzzle and very well made. I like puzzles that are challanging and this one was. There were times when I was convinced that a piece was missing but not so as I eventually found them.
Bought this for my wife, who loved the puzzle. She commented on the quality of the pieces and the lack of 'dust' that is common in other manufacturer's puzzles.
Difficult puzzle, but a beautiful challenge!
I have worked on a few puzzles in the past year. I purchased the puzzle, Starry Wave, because I was intrigued by the combination of two of my favorite paintings to create the image on this puzzle. Very ingenious and creative idea for the puzzle picture!
I absolutely love this puzzle! What a perfect mash-up! Japan is one of my favorite places, so I couldn’t resist Hokusai’s wave!! ❤️ Please hurry with the new releases!!!
Oooooooh!! I am loving this starry wave puzzle. It is DIFFICULT but not in an annoying way. The puzzle pieces are really sturdy and fit confidently together when they are supposed to. No guessing. The painting and detail are GORGEOUS. I love puzzles— this may be my favorite of all time. I may order the earth puzzle next. Does anyone else use packing tape to seal the puzzle when they are finished with a puzzle to cover the front and back to make a floor mat? That is what I plan to do.
Love the picture and I like the texture and quality of the pieces. Just more challenging than I thought it would be, so it's taking a while to complete.
It was a gift to my husband. He enjoyed it. It is beautiful! Love the little poster that came with it!
This is a very well made puzzle, the pieces were durable and thick, not like some other puzzles we've had. It was very challenging, so many blue pieces, but not daunting. We had a wonderful week working on this puzzle, it is beautiful!
It is a tough one...but I love it!!! Great quality puzzle.
Challenging but rewarding! Throughly enjoyed the nights spent putting this together.
Great Puzzle! Can't wait to order another.
This was a gift and they have not built it yet as they now work full time which is a very good thing. They love the looks of it and are very excited to build it. Thank you
A beautiful puzzle and a fun challenge!
Haven't had a chance to do it yet but I'm looking forward to it
We had so much fun with this puzzle! It was a great family activity over the holidays - a tradition we hope to continue!
Our first 1000 piece puzzle! Love it. Definitely challenging, but we are still having fun, 3 weeks in!
Super challenging! Nice quality too.

All of my family loved your puzzles!
GAVE AS A CHRISTMAS GIFT TO MY TEEN GRANDCHILDREN AND THE FIND IT CHALLENGING AND FUN!
Beautiful puzzle with sturdy pieces. Definitely a challenge. I am enjoying every minute.
Loved it!! The moon is next!!
Love this puzzle! It’s beautiful and just the right level of difficulty to be challenging but not brain stumping. Keep those amazing designs coming Blue Kazoo!
My wife comes from a family of jigsaw puzzlers, so I gave her “Starry Wave” for Christmas. She’s been working on it steadily since. She says the puzzle is vicious and nasty, that the company that made it is a bunch of sadists, and that I am not a very nice person to give it to her. Obviously, she is enjoying it immensely. Highly recommended.
Christmas present- hard but a new favorite. Highly recommend!!
We purchased a few of these puzzles as gifts and for ourselves too. All of our friends loved them and are looking forward to working on them. We look forward to completing the Sun, Moon Earth series and framing them when complete.
This was my first Blue Kazoo puzzle and it was very challenging yet rewarding to finish. It is now part of my 70+ puzzle collection. I look forward to doing more Blue Kazoo’s in the future.

A great idea for a puzzle, this was a gift for a good friend who is into puzzles. She is loving this one. She says it has challenges, and that's a good thing. Thanks.
This is a gorgeous puzzle! It juxtaposes two of my favorite images. The pieces fit well together.
The puzzle appears to be great. I bought it for my son and daughter-in-law for XMas, never having seen them do a puzzle. I have cats, so had to be generous instead of selfish. To my delight, they were excited, immediately making plans to make room to work it.
Loved this puzzle....hard but worth it... nice quality, good fit.
I love puzzles and I am good at them. This one was challenging, but fun to do. The quality is good, with pieces that interlock and fit together well and are also easy to take apart for next time.
My Daughter is studying Art in college. Starry night and the Wave are her two favorite paintings. So this puzzle was perfect!
Nicely designed and engineered puzzle. Proving to be quite difficult. Highly recommend though.
Only halfway done but really enjoying this puzzle! It is quite challenging and I love this art puzzle.....beautifully done! Keeping me sane during these tough times. Thanks for a great product. I plan to purchase the round ones next!
such a fun challenge!!! i was so determined to finish it and as soon as i did i was sad to be done. might have to start it again soon hehe :)
The product came well packaged and quickly. So excited to open up the box and give it a try with the family over the holidays! Thank you!
It’s a Christmas present. It’s all wrapped!
I sent the puzzle as a Christmas present to dear friends who are avid puzzlers. They haven't opened the gift yet. I purchased your puzzle because I believed it would be of exceptional quality. I will probably buy one for myself.
I bought this beautiful puzzle for a Christmas gift but since it’s not been gifted yet, I can’t include a photo. It’s is a beautiful box, very nice gift for a puzzle lover.
Beautifully made, deliciously challenging!
This was shipped in a timely manner and is (at least) all that I expected. I will be ordering more!
It’s a Christmas gift - think he’ll love it
I BOUGHT THIS AS A GIFT AND PLAN TO GIVE IT AT CHRISTMAS.
Excellent service! Cool boxes! Photo is amazing! Since these are gifts, the puzzles haven’t been done yet, but my expectations based on all else are very high and positive.
Bought this as a gift for a puzzlehound - she loved it!

Blue Kazoo (@bluekazoogames) surprised me when the company first emerged over the summer. With COVID-19 swarming the world, many puzzle companies flooded the arena, and it became increasingly difficult to discern who was legitimate and who was trying to capitalize off the boredom of many a stay-at-home adult. I will admit, I was skeptical when I saw Blue Kazoo’s first collection of puzzles, even though their color series looks like candy to my eyes! I am SO GLAD I was wrong about this company! Abraham and Josh (the guys to blame for Blue Kazoo, as they say) gave me a chance to review their work, and I am thoroughly amazed by the careful attention they paid to every detail of their puzzle, from the construction of the pieces to the product’s packaging. Their latest creation, Starry Wave, is an impressive mash-up of Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night and The Great Wave by Hokusai, and as intimidating as the challenge is, Abraham and Josh created a puzzle that becomes more joyful to put together the farther into the puzzle I got into. By the time I finished the puzzle, I was shocked at how much I had accomplished given the level of apprehension I initially had going in. Blue Kazoo is by far THE NEXT FORCE to be reckoned with in the puzzle game. Should you decide to get your hands on one from this company, you will not be disappointed. Overall, this puzzle gets a PERFECT 10/10 from me. The artistic arrangement made approaching this puzzle methodical and fun. The pieces are sturdy, thick, and light, and easy to look upon even with bright lighting. The pieces lock together very well, making assembling and moving in parts easy. The details are crisp enough, and the pieces are unique enough to where each is supposed to go. Blue Kazoo exceeded my expectations, and I am looking forward to getting my hands on their entire collection someday!
I was lucky to get early access to this puzzle. Just finished it. I expected the wave portion to be harder than the starry night section, but they were actually pretty similar, and I enjoyed that consistency. And then the best part is...it looks incredible. I knew this from the pics, but seeing the actual puzzle was awesome. If I were to offer some feedback it would be to make the pieces tighter. They fit well, but I love a puzzle that’s really snug.
After doing the Earth series I was looking forward to this new one. It’s on the way and I can’t wait. (I’ll update this when I finish!)
Combining these two pieces into one puzzle just makes sense now that I see it. I’m actually sort of surprised it didn’t exist already. Looking forward to putting it together.
I just got the starry wave puzzle so I haven’t put it together yet, but I gotta say… The box is amazing. I know that’s not the main reason to get a puzzle (obviously) but this thing is gonna be waiting front and center on my shelf until I actually have time to do it.
