As part of the Ravensburger Puzzle Club, the boys and I get the chance to test out and review some of their latest puzzles. I always find Ravensburger Puzzles great quality and have been buying them long before I ever started my blog so this is something I’m really happy to have the chance to get involved in 😀
If you have read the previous Disney Planes Bedding competition post, you will know that we are really looking forward to the new Disney Planes movie which is coming out August 16th. So it was great to see that the puzzles which had been chosen for us are from the new Disney Planes range, featuring some of the main characters who I am sure are set to become known in every household with small children very soon!
There are a few different puzzles coming out in the Disney Planes range from Ravensburger, and also a memory game.
We were sent the 3 in a box set with 49 pieces per puzzle, which is marked as age 5+. I would say this is exactly right as it was just at the right level for Mr Z who has just turned 5. He was able to do the puzzles with not much help from me, and he really enjoyed them as they are just that bit more challenging than the 4 in a box sets he was doing at age 3 and 4. With these puzzles I was able to explain to him the technique of starting around the edges and then filling it in, as this will help him more as he moves on to more advanced puzzles.
The three puzzles in the set feature Dusty, Skipper, and Chupacabra, and each one has a different pattern on the back of all the pieces, so that you are able to quickly sort them and do one at a time.
In the words of Mr Z “We love it, cos it is so fun!” He said his favourite is the orange helicopter Dusty and he is really looking forward to seeing the movie.
