Ravensburger 3D Puzzle Review - not just your average puzzle

When we were asked to write a review for the Ravensburger 3D Puzzle we jumped at the chance, The 3D initial launch collection has 4 different amazing designs, The Eiffel Tower, Big Ben , The Empire States Building and A Red and White Lighthouse.

The puzzles have 216 pieces which include hinged and curved pieces and amazingly no glue is required because of great interlocking system, The recommended age for these is age 10-99 years, so an ideal gift for everyone, The prices start around £16.99 rrp.

We received the Eiffel Tower puzzle which once completed 
stand a brilliant 44cm tall.    

Inside the box you receive a very study cardboard decorative base, 7 plastic parts which will help form your 3D Eiffel Tower, 216 jigsaw pieces and your instructions which have some very interesting facts about the building you are going to make.

Thomas my 10 year old made a start on our puzzle, all the pieces are numbered which make things easier when constructing, The Eiffel Tower is built in three sections so Thomas decided to separate the jigsaw pieces for each part the numbers he needed were clearly noted on the instructions and this made things a lot easier and saved lots of time too.

Thomas set up his base and began building he built each part before placing it on the base and the puzzle was sturdy enough to do this, the pieces clipped together and stayed in place which really helped him to do it this way, The hinged pieces seemed a little tricky at first but he quickly got the hang of how to do them.

As the puzzle got taller, it also got thinner which made the pieces a little harder to place but Thomas managed fine.

Thomas really enjoyed making this puzzle and needed no help in doing it, he now has his completed puzzle on display in his room, I cannot say anything negative about this puzzle Only positive.

 Thomas has said he wants the other ones now, we would recommend for people of all ages.
