The second Jurassic World film (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) comes out at the beginning of June and to celebrate comes this new jigsaw from Ravensburger.
The Jurassic World dinosaur XXL100 jigsaw puzzle is a one hundred piece puzzle aimed at children 6+.
The puzzle is made from strong cardboard and it measures 49 x 36 cm when put together. Each piece of the puzzle is over an inch square so it’s nice and easy to handle.
The jigsaw picture has a nice finish that minimises glare on the image. The design features a T-Rex, Triceratops and other fearsome dinosaurs as the puzzle picture.
Ravensburger puzzles are my favourite choice. I have lots of these puzzles and they have lasted well. The jigsaw pieces are thick, slot into place easily without having to force or bend and can be put together and pulled apart many times without the pieces becoming damaged.
When I asked my 7-year-old to do the jigsaw, he was not impressed! It’s been a while since he’s done a jigsaw, he’s lost interest in jigsaws because of computer games. The jigsaw took him over half an hour to complete and he did actually enjoy doing it once he got into it.
Zac managed to complete the border by himself, I encouraged him to sort out the edge pieces first, he did this all by himself. The edge pieces were easy enough to put together, the stud feature along the edge and the streaks of orange and red flames helped guide him. The middle was more tricky because of the greens and browns all looking the same. I helped Zac with the middle and if I’m honest it was quite tricky. Nice to be challenged though, the challenge made it more interesting for Zac too.
We were both impressed with the completed picture. The colours are vibrant and the attention to detail is amazing. Given my experience, I am not entirely convinced by the 6+ guidance on this puzzle. Most 6-year-olds will need assistance from a grown-up to finish solving this jigsaw.
If you like jigsaws and dinosaurs and are looking for a challenge, this Fallen Kingdom puzzle is just the thing.
The Ravensburger Jurassic World XXL100 Jigsaw Puzzle has an RRP of £7.99 and can be bought from good toy shops or via Amazon.
