My soon to be teenage daughter has been amazed at the 3D puzzles from Ravensburger this past year especially and has done quite a few now ranging from a few vase, storage box's, pencil holders, Jewelry A huge Disney Castle and now a sneaker.
I absolutely love the fact that not only is it something that keeps their mind entertained for a few hours or days m (depending on the size and complication ability) but the 3D puzzles make fun for ornamental purposes too and some even make use for holding items such as jewelry or stationary.
Despicable me are such a huge craze in our home aimed at all ages from our 2 year old son to our daddy of the family who likes to imitate the characters every so often when he's feeling rather funny.
We were very excited to see that the new movie was released this year and once again Ravensburger were there with a new line already and waiting for us within their 3D range including the wonderful Sneaker which holds stationary , ideal for our home education desk .
This sneaker is 108 pieces and features those cute load of Minions , covering the whole boot which measures 21cm x 12cm so perfect size to add on to a workplace desk or shelf.
The Puzzle of course comes with some very helpful and easy to follow instructions which the children followed with no help needed and of course some larger base pieces to keep the whole puzzle that little more realistic as well as helping wit the stability of the build.
The puzzle is all numbered and so on the back of each piece you will find a number , if your feeling more challenging then why not try to do the puzzle without using them and use your eye for finding that perfect piece.
For my daughter she still likes to use the numbers , especially giving this one had pretty much the whole troop of minions on the sneaker and to us they all look the same , so it was a little more difficult .
Using the numbers meant we were basically counting from 1 -108 and that was as hard as it got , the pieces fit together perfectly and being made form a plastic it meant there was no worry of tearing pieces .
The whole thing is finished of by one last piece which holds it all together adding a little more sturdiness to it .
There are quite a few other 3D puzzles by Ravensburger already available along side this sneaker and t be fare they all look great fun .
The puzzle did not take a long time to build , I find sometimes puzzles take so long that the boredom kicks in quickly sometimes but this only took around half an hour so she thoroughly enjoyed her experience .
Have you tried any of the 3D puzzles, do you like Despicable Me ?
