Currently being sold from the online store Etsy through a firm called LittleFlowerPotShop, these transparent puzzles are already one of the site's 'bestsellers.'

Yes, these are that popular and many sets have already been sold out with a rating of five out of five stars given by customers. The product has been described as the 'Impossibly difficult CLEAR jigsaw puzzle for adults in multiple sizes | Puzzle Impossible: a really hard custom jigsaw puzzle.' Each piece is made from 'clear cast acrylic' and the item is so popular that there is an estimated wait time of '4 weeks before shipping' and this too putting it 'conservatively.'

These puzzles also come in various sets from easy to the most difficult. The description on the website highlights the different sets - 'Nine pieces...These are best for the budding puzzle enthusiast (ages 10 and up, please). Takes an average adult <5 minutes to solve. Each piece is approx 2.' Then there are the 'Twenty-five pieces set in the same 5.75x5.75 square form factor. Each piece is approx 1 1/8,' The third set contains, "Forty-nine pieces...in the same 5.75x5.75 square". More pieces mean each piece is getting still smaller and will keep you occupied for several hours! Each piece is approx 7/8.' And lastly, the most difficult puzzle set has 'one hundred and forty piece' where one could spend 'just DAYS of fun assembling them. Each piece is approx 1/2."
The description adds, "we really didn't think anyone would rise to the challenge." But people are proving them otherwise. Reviews of the product have been glowing. Take the comment by George Platen who wrote on February 17: Great product that is very ingenious in its design. There are some very clever tricks in the design that will definitely surprise and delight anyone who likes puzzles. But the seller is even better. One-of-the-good-ones who will go out of their way to make everything thing right if there are any hiccups with the order. (There was a big hiccup with my order and it was sorted instantly and without question). Another reviewer L N wrote this month: I only have 2 pieces together so far, but I’m loving this! Such a great idea and so well made. Great seller! I’m buying more as gifts 😬.
