Enzo Mari Pesci Puzzle Knock-Off: Mom Feature

4:00 AM

You may remember the awesome animal puzzle my mom made for all her grandkids last Christmas.
This year she did it again, with the 2nd edition.
The puzzle designer is Enzo Mari, a famous Italian furniture designer.
This particular puzzle is his Pesci Animal Puzzle.
You can purchase an official Enzo Mari puzzle here.
My mom hacked out her own knock-off version for our family with her mad scroll-saw skills and we love it!

My mom made three of these puzzles!
I think I was more excited than my kids.
The pieces fit in the puzzle frame, and my mom burned the outline in the bottom so we can figure out how to put it together.

My dad's favorite is the chubby piranha.

Our favorite is the octopus.
We pretend the missing 2 legs are behind him out of sight. 

The pieces are 2" thick and stack really well.
This puzzle design is easier to stack, as you have the huge fat whale as the base. 

These are really cool toys that kids and adults enjoy.
They live permanently on our coffee table.
