frida loves to pass the time gnawing on bully sticks so only the best grass-fed, free range pizzle will do! i always debate if i i should tell folks who want frida to give them a kiss after she’s been chewing on a bully stick.

to put that in perspective, there are over half a trillion ( 15!/2 = 653,837,184,000 )
possible permutations and half of all starting points are not solvable no matter how many permutations are tried! according to wikipedia he demonstrated his 15 puzzle prowess in 1972 on the tonight show, though sadly i can’t find a video.
we’ve had this think fun fifteen puzzle for years and it has been played with so many times by odin and us that the pieces feel smooth and well worn ( in a good way ). it’s just 2”x2” but weighs 3 oz and feels substantial and not chintzy in your hand.
i think it started something like this, “oh, look at the cuuuute gorilla holding a flower! let’s put the puzzle together. how hard can it be? It’s ooooonlyyyyy 750 pieces!”
we completely underestimated the challenge – months later and we still don’t have our dining room table back 🙂
we mostly eat at kitchen table so it’s not a huge loss but, still, probably should have a dedicated puzzle table.
