3 out of 5 stars
I am a little confused about this puzzle. Not that it's difficult. Actually, it's pretty easy to solve (certainly not a level 9). There are only 17 pieces, and I have already found 3 different ways to get the pieces to fit flush with the frame. However, there is no indication in the packaging (no instructions) on which assembly is the correct one. Also, the puzzle was shipped to me in shrink wrap assembled incorrectly (see photo of product). I assume this was intentional. I bought this because I am a music teacher. I know how the piano keyboard should look (the black keys alternate in clumps of 2s and 3s), and I still have come up with two possible correct solutions. I prefer puzzles with one correct answer. Regardless, it looks very nice and I will be taking this to my classroom. I don't think it's worth $35, but music teachers may appreciate it.
