Review: As a long time Disney fan, I really enjoy doing a good Disney themed jigsaw – and I also love a nice Christmas jigsaw puzzle – so this puzzle joins the two themes together which makes for a pretty great jigsaw.
This 1000 piece jigsaw is jam packed with SO many Disney characters, including some of the most popular Disney Pixar characters as well as the classic Disney princesses and characters. The jigsaw is set in a train station, with all the characters gathered together ready to board the train for a festive journey.
Minnie and Mickey are the stars of the show right at the front in their festive outfits, joined by their friends Donald & Daisy Duck and of course Goofy the dog. Winnie the Pooh and his friends are busy decorating the front of the train, while the fairies from the Tinkerbell films flutter around the ceiling.
It’s definitely one of those puzzles where the more you look at it, the more you can spot, with all the familiar faces and little festive details. There are quite a few “hidden Mickeys” too!
As with almost all the Ravensburger puzzles I’ve reviewed on the blog, I’ve not had any problems with missing pieces or the jigsaw being poorly cut. It comes well packaged in a shrink wrapped sturdy box, with the pieces in a sealed bag inside. The finished puzzle is approx 50 x 70 cm and fits on a ‘standard’ sized 1000pc puzzle board, and is made from good quality cardboard with a linen finish which helps prevent glare.
The ‘soft click’ technology really helps you to be sure you’re fitting the right pieces together – and unlike some jigsaws I’ve done in the past, it is really quite unusual to put two pieces together incorrectly.
This jigsaw is a little tough for children but the girls have really enjoyed watching my progress and spotting the different characters on the pieces. It wasn’t the most challenging Ravensburger puzzle I’ve done as I’ve been tackling the incredibly complex and detailed Colin Thompson puzzles recently, but it still presented enough of a challenge to be enjoyable – and it’s ideal for some relaxed festive family puzzling time this holiday.
5 stars for this fun & festive Disney jigsaw puzzle, I really enjoyed putting it together and the finished image is lovely – and it was perfect for keeping me entertained while I was too poorly to work in the last few days.
