We are puzzle mad at the moment in our house. The boys have really taken a shine to jigsaws and the 3D puzzles. Although mummy is the one who has to sit on the floor helping them make these jigsaws and 3D puzzles. I love the way they try to work out were each piece goes and how happy they are when they have completed it. We recently had the pleasure of trying to build the 3D Disney Castle the boys were mesmerised from the minute I opened the box.
The 3D Disney Castle Puzzle has 216 pieces and as well as 96 accessories. The instructions are really easy to follow and it took me just over and hour to build from start to finish with my two 3 year old helpers who didn’t do much helping lol. This was our 2nd 3D puzzle and a huge jump from the 52 piece minion.
Once I started to build the castle it came together quite quickly. I initially thought it was going to be lots of little pieces but actually the 216 pieces are one big section in the middle the rest of the castle is made from the 96 accessory pieces. Its really simple to slot together and once you start clicking pieces in it becomes very sturdy.
The most time consuming part is the 216 pieces rectangle piece in the middle. You have to click all the pieces together in number order so a little tip from me is spend 10 mins sorting into order so you can just go down each line. This made the construction time super quick and easy. No stressing hunting for the number.
The actual construction can be a little bit fiddly and younger children may need a little helping slotting everything together. Once its clicked in place the castle is quite sturdy as you can see the boys loved driving their cars and trains around it.
The castle costs around £40 and it really a lovely piece for any Disney fan to have in there room on display. The castle has 100 of your favourite Disney characters dotted around the castle. The boys loved picking out the character they knew.
We have loved building this castle and we can’t wait to try out more 3D puzzles from Ravensburger.
