We opened the box and poured out the pieces on 6 October. By the end of that day we had found and assembled all but 2 or 3 edge pieces. Then the REAL work began. The short version is that we finished it tonight, 21 Dec - Whew! I'm sure glad the world didn't end before we could wrap this up!
Here's how we did it. Edges first - no mystery there for practiced puzzle assemblers. Next we did the birds. Their bright colors made them easy to work on. As we did this we also pieced together the hippos, though it took quite a while before they were all the way done. Next was the outline of the rhino - the first time through you will have a hard time telling the difference between rhino and elephant pieces, but overall, the rhino has more of a yellow hue, while the elephants are more gray. While this was going on we also stared to piece together the trees in the upper right-hand corner. Then we tackled the giraffes and gazelles.
The hardest part? I'd say it was a toss-up between the big zebras and the elephants. But probably because they were smaller, we finished the zebras before the elephants, and finding the odd piece here and there.
My older daughter came up with the quote of the day as we prepared to take on the elephants in earnest. She said,
"There comes a time in every puzzle when you have to buckle down and do the elephants".
You just have to buckle down and do it.
As for the puzzle itself...I found it to be well made.Read more ›
Zebras are HARD. Giraffes have tiny ears.
I think this puzzle is a requirement for an African big game safari. I can now pick out a lion's nostril at 300 yards.
On a 1 to 10 difficulty scale, I'd rate this puzzle a full 10. Looking at the box, I imagined it wouldn't be that hard. Lots of single color areas in the elephants and rhinos, easy to make out patterns with the zebras and giraffes, and then a bit of left over odds and ends. Simple, right? Guess again. I thought my eyes were gonna bug out with all those black and white stripes going in random directions! Once I got the edge, the flamingo, the other big bird, the cranes and the tusks done, I had a giant box stuffed to the rim with nothing easy to find. The sheer volume of pieces is staggering and if you're easily discouraged, you might be tempted to give up. Several times I got "stuck" and had to walk away and come back later for a fresh start. Strange how you can look at pieces for a half an hour and nothing fits together, step away, come back and it's OBVIOUS where 20 or 25 pieces go.
You'll find WEEKS OF FUN (or something like that!) inside this puzzle box. But, unless you've got a banquet table that seats 12, find somewhere other than the kitchen table to tackle it (unless you and your family like to eat at the sink!).
I'd like to report the usual Ravensburger quality, but the puzzle I got had one damaged piece in the zebra's body where 50% of the picture surface was torn off and missing. I also received an "extra" picture layer only piece of the crane.Read more ›

When considering any puzzle, do not fail to consider the maker of the finest, Ravensburger. We have a lot of puzzles and all are inferior, many way inferior to Ravensburger.Published 3 months ago by Troy F
