I talk a lot on here about the great deals I find, "The deal of the Day," but I wanted to show one that didn't turn out the way I planned. Recently, I saw this puzzle at a local yard sale. It was a Thomas the Train one that Bear would love. It's a bit more than he can handle right now, but he will grow into it. The pieces were in great condition. For $3, SOLD!
In case you don't see it let me help you out...
I put the puzzle back into the box while trying to keep it as together as possible. I'm going to just let him play with it as is right now. Though I am debating possibly doing a few things to make it worth the money I spent on it. My number one option right now is to cut the puzzle up into smaller ones that would make new edges. That way he can handle building the smaller puzzles right now. I've also tossed the idea around about cutting up the cover to make cheap art for the playroom at the next location. At the very least I could just let him play with it as is until he craps it out then toss it. Either way, I think I can salvage something out of it to make it worth the small amount of money that I paid.
