Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeff47 Excellent and unique
I do not understand any of the negative reviews. The quality is quite fine. True, this is not a toy for children; the pieces are small, but not unusually so or at all flimsy. For adult puzzle and map enthusiasts, this is a great gift, colorful, unique, and worth fitting together and even framing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Puzzlefan Poorly made
I got this puzzle for my mom for Christmas. It seemed like the perfect gift since she has lived in her house forever and loves jigsaw puzzles. She said that multiple pieces do not have any backing on them! It was very poorly made - what a disappointment. I also got a different product - the framed "home is where the heart is" map as a housewarming present for my sister-in-law since they bought a new house. Their house was way off center in the picture- it was way on the side of the google map. Cute ideas, but unfortunately not a good experience with either product.

I purchased this for my son who loves maps and streets. It is different and a unique gift. However, the quality of the pieces is only fair. They fit together rather loosely and all pieces are cut similar. It is too hard for him so I am putting it together. Good concept but cheaply made.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jan I was disappointed.
Your Hometown Map Puzzles sounded like such unique and interesting gifts, so I ordered three of them. I think you should make it clearer in your description that these geological survey maps are not street maps. Geological maps do not make very interesting puzzles in my opinion. I was disappointed.

The pieces were not interlocking and one edge piece could fit a number of different places. In my case the border was 50% black so impossible to use color for location. The black coloring on these pieces also flaked off.
To test for fit should be able to hold up two pieces and they should hold together. This never happened.
I loved the idea hated the execution.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Angela Great gift, diffucult puzzle
This was an amazing gift idea for my map-obsessed father-in-law. It was definitly difficult since there was no picture to go off of. The only caution: i would only recomend this for suburban and urban map areas. The map i got was of a very rural area and there weren't as many roads shown on the map as i would have liked. The 4 milex6 mile area was too small.

I gave this to our son's family after they moved into their new house. They can't wait to finish it so they can frame it for the wall.
