In fact, I had a lot of other options but kept coming back to this one. That's a sign I needed to get it. I opened it a week ago and already making great progress. The colors are so crisp, so clean, the puzzle pieces fit together oh so nicely, and the pictures so fun. I am an adult and yet doing this puzzle is giving me the deep need for thinking, or not thinking as Eckart Tolle would say ;), for decompressing, for keeping my mind sharp and keeping my wits about me and keeping my memory in check, and there is such joy in piecing together the right pieces. It Is Addictive. This is a gorgeous puzzle that I hope to hang in my office when finished - and it is far from my last Ravensburger :)!
Update: I finally got Mod Podge and glued the front and back of the puzzle several times - according to instructions - let it dry for 30 minutes after each application and then just let it rest on top of my book shelf. See picture below. It's quite lovely!!!! Onto my next puzzle now. I hope this helps.
Another great feature of all Ravensburger puzzles is that they are packaged in a plastic bag (within the box) that is labeled with a batch number that you can use to try to get replacement pieces. We have never had a puzzle from them that was missing any pieces (and we have done around 20-30+ of their puzzles), but if you happen to end up with any missing pieces yourself, you should have the batch number available so you can contact Ravensburger's customer service (through their company website). I suggest that when you open up your puzzle, you write the number from the bag on the inside of your box. This way, you don't have to keep the bag around, and you will always have the appropriate batch number with each puzzle. Their current policy states that they are not always able to replace single pieces, but they will do their best to resolve the situation. Their manufacturing process requires they change the cutting tools every so many puzzles (and this process changes the shapes of the pieces), so my guess is that you will be able to get replacement pieces as long as your puzzle is from the current cutting tools.
This particular puzzle is super cute with so very many tiny details. I would estimate challenge level to be moderate on this particular puzzle.
There is just so much to love about this puzzle! First of all, the feel of the individual pieces is so much higher quality than most puzzles -- it's not just a mental exercise putting this together; it's a sensory experience. The thickness, the smoothness, and the obvious quality mean that the puzzle will last through far more rounds of assembling and disassembling. The fit of the pieces is tight enough to make it easy to move large chunks from one place to another, which is really nice (for instance, I sometimes like to sit back in a recliner and work on just one portion on its own, then later add it to the rest of the puzzle). Also, every piece is different from the others, so you don't get tricked into putting a piece in the wrong spot.
The images themselves are so much fun. There are TONS of tiny details, which is what I love most in a good puzzle. I ended up frequently spending time just exploring the picture itself because there was so much to notice. The book titles are funny and there are all sorts of amusing little critters all over the place to find. When I finished it, I had to give myself a good half hour for admiration of the puzzle before I could put it away! And the colors are wonderfully vidid.
Hands down, this was my favorite puzzle in a long time. (And believe me, I have done a LOT of puzzles -- I'm an addict!)
