Ravensburger Puzzle Review

When I was asked if I would like to do a Ravensburger puzzle review I immediately thought of Kacy, just before Christmas she kept mentioning she loved doing puzzles and would love some for Christmas.  When it arrived it was even better, it had one her favourite animals on it -  horses but being a typical 10 year old she had changed her mind and now she doesn't like puzzles.  I even suggested she could do with me just one on one time, but everything I suggested she said no to.  Well Kira jumped at the chance and said she would love to do the puzzle with me.

This puzzle is a 9+ and 300 pieces so I already knew Kira would need a lot of help doing this puzzle, we started by sorting all the corners out and getting edging together, we hadn't got that much done before it was time for Kira to go to bed so I continued to do the puzzle.

This puzzle was a lot harder even for me, due to all the colours being similar so got Daddy to help me, he was very smug and said "this is easy, we will get this done in no time", at one point Kacy and her friend came down and help us for a little while. 

I forgot how therapeutic puzzles can be and keeps your mind active, Daddy and I thought it hadn't taken that long to finish the puzzle, then we saw the time and it was gone 10 at night.  

The puzzle all finished

The puzzle has got loads of details in it, from the colour of the horse's reins to the colour of the flowers on the ground, I would definitely recommend Ravensburger puzzle.

Are you any good at puzzles?

*we were given this puzzle for own opinions and photos*

  1. I love jigsaw puzzles, I haven't done one in years but I remember they were always good fun. When I was little I had a 'smarties' puzzle - it was just impossible, I never finished it!

  2. I love puzzles, I have to admit I do prefer the magic puzzle app though, it's a lot less messy and if I want to I can make it an easy puzzle! Is that cheating?!
