Our products are high quality, meticulously manufactured items that make wonderful gifts for you and other weird-adjacent people in your life. Our goal is to make you smile.
I've done a number of 1000-piece puzzles during the pandemic, but this one was by far the most fun. The art is, of course, delightful (and I keep finding hidden surprises), and the variety of frames and color/shading make this very approachable (without being too easy). I normally get bored after sitting at a puzzle for more than a half hour or so, but I was at this for several hours last night until midnight (past my weekday bedtime). Would HIGHLY recommend, and I look forward to getting more oCalamityware's puzzles!
Excellent puzzle! Great detail so there’s always a little clue on each piece. Crisp edges that lock together, so you can move segments easily. Not too easy, not too hard. I kept delaying finishing because I didn’t want it to end.
The high quality of the printing, the crispness of the design, and the sturdiness of the cardboard pieces all make this puzzle a pleasure for family and individual puzzle play.
📝the puzzles are well constructed and good quality. Surprisingly fun and a good challenge for the "gifted" puzzler. I enjoyed the fun, certainly not boring. Thank you for trying something different and mind boggling

Keep up the good work Don! I absolutely love this puzzle. Fun to put together and no stress involved. 😊 also, the fun and zany creatures featured are what draws me in, every time. Thanks for bringing puzzles back into my life!
Highly recommended! This puzzle was fun to build from beginning to end, and considerably easier that the Apes and Aliens and the one with the sea monsters. I enjoyed those also, but this one allowed for more organic building by piece shape and color since there were almost all unique colors, patterns, and creatures instead of so many closely resembling ones. Less of a find the object exercise and more of a traditional jigsaw approach. Definitely no compromise on the zany and original critters and infinitely creative images that Don Moyer always delights me with. They abound and kept me laughing and intrigued. I'll make this one again!
Everything I hoped for. Well made, interesting, a real pleasure to put together. I expect to enjoy it again and again in the future. This was my first jigsaw from Calamityware, but now that I know they’re quality products, I will buy more.
I love puzzles and I love the Calamityware designs.
I am so sure my image has been captured perfectly in one of these portraits. Fun it was wonderful to see my family members revealed with each piece placed. I absolutely love this puzzle
Very well made puzzle. Pieces fit together nicely. I had lots of fun and the picture was a joy to put together!
