The finished puzzle is display-worthy and a great conversation piece.

Puzzle Building Goes 3D

Tower Bridge is the iconic bridge structure of London, recognizable by the bridge's two castle-like towers. The key London landmark is a combined bascule (drawbridge) and suspension bridge that was completed in 1894 over London's Thames River. The bridge is located near the Tower of London, from where it gets its name, and features a pedestrian walkway, enabling visitors to walk between the towers, as well as on the bascule that opens and pivots to allow vessels to pass underneath.

3D Tower Bridge Puzzle Promotes Communication

The distinctive bridge, recognized the world over for its twin towers, was built in the Victorian Gothic style, and designed to be in harmony with nearby Tower of London. The Tower Bridge lets puzzlers immerse themselves in the history of the structure and its many attributes as well as its status in the Londong cityscape. The finished puzzle stands 46.2" long and 16" tall and is a display-worthy historical replica and conversation starter for multiple generations to enjoy. It promotes communication and cooperation while it hones fine motor and construction skills.

Puzzle Pieces and Accessories Build Historical Knowledge

Puzzle assembly is a tactile endeavor and social exercise that invites company and conversation, especially of Tower Bridge, one of the most recognizable and historic bridges in the world. The historical significance of Tower Bridge provides a learning opportunity and a hands-on appreciation for the ingenuity of the building's designers, dedication of the laborers and a better understanding of the structure's place in history and service to its home city.

Recommended for fans of 3D puzzles.

It looks very impressive and is quite large -- you really need a long shelf or other area if you plan to display this set.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is the second Ravensburger 3D puzzle I've done and very similar experience to the first. And while these are fun to build and look great when done, the numbering system on the pieces make this much more like a snap-together-to-build model than a challenging 3D puzzle.

If you go into the build with this understanding, here are the pros and cons of this set as I see them:

Pros:
-Another great looking display piece.
-Fun to build
-Pieces interlock very nicely making the piece very sturdy.

Cons:
-Rather simplistic. You really only use the puzzle piece to build two small-ish towers, the tall ones in the photo. The smaller towers are just four interlocking pieces.
-Paper inserts on the drawbridge sections slide out of place when raised.

Debatable:
-Large. The end model is quite large and spans almost my full dining room table at just over 46 inches. That can make finding a suitable display space a challenge.

Sumamry:
Another fun, great looking yet somewhat simplistic 3D model that might pose a challenge to display when complete.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is my second Ravensburger 3D puzzle, the first being London's famous Big Ben which is considerably smaller and simpler to assemble than the Tower Bridge puzzle. That said, I'm very happy to say that my wife and I had a great time assembling this puzzle and it's a welcome addition to my basement where it's on display on top of a long bookshelf.

For those new to these types of 3D puzzles, what you're getting in essence is a series of plastic pieces that are numbered on the back and have the image on the front-side. This puzzle contains two bags of pieces that are intermixed and labeled from 1-to-216. Corner pieces in this puzzle bend and contain an interlocking element that snaps the piece in its correct position. The puzzles are built in numerical order and even come labeled with an arrow indicating which direction the following piece should be placed in. The two bridge towers are the only pieces that require actual detailed assembly. The rest of the puzzle including the bridge supports, drawbridge, pylons are all large plastic pieces that slide into slots on tower portion or in the case of the pylons, support the towers themselves. Every preset piece interlocks with the tower and the bridge once completed is surprisingly sturdy.

A few tips:
(+) Consider the dimensions of this puzzle before assembly. The puzzle completely assembled is almost 4 feet long and 16-inches tall. Moving the completed puzzle once fully assembled is very challenging. Though it is easy enough to break down into smaller pieces for final assembly if you plan on displaying it.

(+) This puzzle can be completely assembled without the use of the numbers on the back of the pieces.

Anything that has a drawbridge on it gets attention at our house. The girls in the family like anything that looks like a princess might live in it or at least nearby. The towers meet that criteria. Apparently the most fun here comes from watching until someone has it built and then knocking it down. This puzzle meets that need. I like Ravensburger puzzles. They are always thinking of something new and creative.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My daughter loves puzzles but is very particular and can lose interest if the puzzle does not capture her imagination. This particular puzzle was enough of a challenge to keep her interest, but not so difficult she might become frustrated.

When it's done, the whole thing looks spectacular on a tabletop. It doesn't even really look like a puzzle from a short distance. It's a very nice accent piece!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I really like Ravensburger 3D puzzles although with the numbering system, they're more like 3D models than puzzles. This bridge is quite a large puzzle - make sure you have a large display area available once you've completed assembly.

So this puzzle is composed of several heavy duty plastic puzzle pieces that snap together via a numbering system, some plastic parts that attach once the puzzle sections are assembled and some graphic pieces (like the bases) the puzzle sits on.

The quality of the plastic is very good and durable and the attention to detail is stunning. I would say these puzzles are suitable for both children and adults and look very beautiful when complete.

The only negative comment I can make is regarding the price. I'm not sure I would value this at over $50. That's a serious committment to a puzzle hobby. Otherwise, this is a beautiful and engaging project to undertake with the kids or grandfolk. Really lovely overall.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My 9-year-old son and I put this toy together in about an hour. While there is some element of "puzzleness," it really is more of a model than a puzzle. I don't think you could really treat it like a puzzle due to the number of seemingly identical pieces, but I guess it would be possible to ignore the numbers and arrows on the back of each piece. The towers are 3-D "puzzle" constructions which then feed into the "model" building, which involves adding the bases, roads, and suspension components.

This toy is constructed of high quality plastic pieces with some paper decorations/adornments. It if pretty large once fully assembled (46.2 inches - 117,4 cm) long and a little over a foot (30,5 cm) high. The bridge is large enough for Matchbox-type cars to be run across it, so there is some additional play value for younger children.

As for educational value, this toy is a model of the Tower Bridge in London, so there's that aspect, but the manufacturer also includes a bit of history in the instruction booklet after the assembly guidelines. I learned a bit about the bridge from this material -- did you know that construction was started in 1886 and took 8 years? Don't expect an in-depth history lesson, but I found it nice to have something included.

A solid 4 stars for this toy.
