Ravensburger Jigsaw Puzzles –
How well do they hold up when water is tipped all over them, and are they any cop?
Thanks to UKMumsTV and Ravensburger I have been sent 3 Ravensburger jigsaw puzzles to review. The first one is an Octonauts Puzzle shown here!
The next one is from the Driver Dan series.
And the last one is here! It’s from the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse range, and it has huge pieces for smaller kids who are just getting their heads around the jigsaw concept.
The Octonauts puzzle and the Driver Dan puzzles both consist of three puzzles each which are 18cm by 18cm. So in each box you have three separate jigsaw activities which is very convenient if you have more than one child and if they argue over toys. You’d think there might be issues with the pieces getting mixed up, but they use this clever little sorting method.
The Minnie Mouse giant puzzle is 24 pieces and is 69cm by 49cm. This will give you some idea of the size of each jigsaw piece:
They are really nice big puzzles that are great for younger children, and all three jigsaws are cheerfully coloured and show well defined pictures.
These are also edged well. I’ve come across jigsaws before where the paper peels away from the cardboard backing very quickly, which is the sign of a cheap manufacturing process if you ask me. These do seem very securely glued together and will no doubt last a while.
My son helpfully threw a glass of water over the Minnie Mouse puzzle because he said there were ‘crumbs on it!’ which was very annoying. I’m not saying the puzzle is waterproof because it blatantly isn’t, but it seems to have survived the soaking very well, and isn’t dropping in bits – so that has gone in its favour in this house. The more indestructible toys are, the better.
If you’d like to buy a giant puzzle there’s a range HERE for £7.79
If you’d prefer one of the jigsaws for slightly older children you can find a range HERE for approximately £4.99
Many thanks to UKMumsTV & Ravensburger for sending me these puzzles, no other financial reward was given.
