We have recently had the pleasure of trying out a 4 in a box jigsaw from Ravensburger. Our box contained 4 jigsaws of varying difficulty. Doing a jigsaw is a great way to keep the kids entertained and their minds active. We love to do puzzles together. There are so many different types of puzzles and jigsaws out on the market these days there is something to suit everyone.
This set is aimed at pre school age. The jigsaws progress in difficulty starting with 12 pieces and moving up to 24. The boys love jigsaws and do really well when you get them started off. They love to take turns in placing the pieces.
The first jigsaw with 12 pieces is a pirate and they breezed through and found it really easy to complete. Jigsaw number 2 is a super hero and the loved this one doing super hero impressions round the room. The third jigsaw with 20 pieces is a boy in space, they enjoyed doing this but didn’t really relate to the character. Jigsaw number 4 has 24 pieces and is their favourite as it is a dragon/dinosaur.
It didn’t take us too long to complete all 4 and we had lots of fun doing them. For me as a parent I know they really like something when they ask for it again and again and these jigsaws are certainly liked. Since the first time of doing then we have had them out nearly every day. It been a great way to teach them about tidying their toys away as well. The rule is the toys have to be tidy before the puzzles come out.
Ravensburger do a range of these 4 in a box jigsaws. They have all sorts of themes as well as popular characters. We have seen some Thomas the Tank engine ones which we would love to try next. The quality is very high and the jigsaw pieces are sturdy so I know they withstand the boys playing with them over and over.
