Ravensburger have a great range of puzzles, including 3D puzzles which are great for older kids. We tried out the Camper Van 3D puzzle, which is made up of 162 pieces. This puzzle is recommended for age 10+, who could put it together independently or slightly younger kids can get involved and make it together as a family.

The puzzle is made up of a large camper van base, with wheels and roof, and then the body of the camper van is made up around this using the 3D Puzzle pieces.

The instructions included are clear, and if you’ve done 3D puzzles from Ravensburger before then you’ll be familiar with the concept but if not, you can still get going pretty quickly.

After putting together the wheels and base, you will need to organise the puzzle pieces by number. With all of the Ravensburger 3D puzzles, you’ll find numbers and arrows on the back to help you. If you’re very experienced perhaps you could do the puzzle the other way round by looking only at the front pictures, but we find the numbers really helpful and my boys enjoy sorting those out together.

The pieces slot into the base as you can see. Putting together the camper van puzzle was something fun for our family to do together, and it didnt take too long before all of the puzzle pieces were in place

Then all that’s needed is the roof! It looks pretty effective once finished, and can either be displayed or broken apart and stored back inside the box to made again as many times as you like.
