Smile JigSaw Puzzle

We were in the local Wal-Mart last night and found a 1000 piece puzzle. It is a 50s/60s Drive-In Movie scene with cars pulling up. Front and center... a RED 60 SquareBird. I guess now we have another winter project.

I have tried to find that puzzle on their website also. I searched by puzzle name, artist name and puzzle stock number, but did not find it. I have just written an email to them asking for information regarding its availability. I had tried to call them, but their office is closed on the weekends. I will let you know what they have to say when they reply. In the meantime, those of you in the US might check your local Walmart, as I am going to do later on today.

Default JigSaw Puzzle

This is getting to be more of a "puzzle" than I thought it would be! Nowhere on their website could I find that puzzle shown. So off I went to Walmart to find one. I spent about a half hour going through every puzzle they had to no avail. I found several others that Dan Hatala created, but not that one!

It was my intent to buy 2-3 of them so I could tell those of you overseas that I had some. Then it would have been a simple matter of taking care of payment through PayPal, and I could have shipped the puzzle to you. I will have to see what that company says about having them in stock or not. If they do, you can order directly from them. If they don't, then all of us who would like to have one, are out of luck!

Anders is probably right about Squarebirds.org Force!

I will let you know what I find out this coming week.

If it's any help, my wife says that this puzlle was not in the usual puzzle display area. It was in a special display area near the sewing and notions part of the store. In that store, it was also near the automotive department. It cost $7.97. I can't believe they only got shipped to Fort Dodge, Iowa. Next time I'm there. I'll look for more.

Thanks, Jay, for telling me where she found that puzzle at in your store. When I go back, I will look in that area. What gets me is that puzzle does not show up on the company's website. However, I notice that the stock number listed for that puzzle is a higher number than the rest of the puzzles listed under Dan Hatala's name. So it may be that it is a new one and that they have not updated their database on their website yet. I did see several of his other puzzles there though.

I remember seeing the puzzle on here. I think jon lechich aka jipjob had pictures of him and his wife putting it together. I think it was about a year ago.
