Product: Ravensburger “Emoji XXL100” Jigsaw
Age Range: 6 years+
Manufacturer’s Description: We’re all used to seeing and using “Emojis”. They have become part of our everyday language, communicating so many different emotions, moods, feelings and opinions. This bright, colourful and wonderfully busy 100pc puzzle design includes masses of different “Emojis”for you to enjoy, building into a fun-packed montage that can be enjoyed time and time again.
Review: There is something inherently fun about emojis and they are everywhere these days. Both Georgie and Lydia love the huge range of different faces and images out there, and this new emoji jigsaw from Ravensburger includes many of their favourites.
With the usual high quality that I have come to expect from Ravensburger puzzles, this jigsaw is a joy to put together. The pieces slot together perfectly, and you don’t get any of those annoying poorly cut pieces that have to be pulled apart before you start puzzling.
The first time I unpacked it Lydia helped me put it together, and Georgie (5 years old) has been enjoying it since then too – she is pretty good at puzzles and completed it with very little help from me.
This jigsaw is bright & colourful, with large child friendly pieces. It isn’t as difficult as it seems initially; once you have the edges done you can start with the largest emojis and work from there to fill in the gaps. With the aid of the picture on the box it is fairly simple to spot where the different pieces go, and Lydia really enjoyed helping me hunt for the emoji in puzzle.
The great quality cardboard is topped with a high resolution linen finish printed image, so the picture is clear and glare-free – and it will survive being played with repeatedly. The puzzle measures 19 x 14 inches (or 49 x 36 cm) – it’s a good size for kids; at 100 pieces it’s not so big it becomes daunting, but is still challenging.
We really enjoyed this puzzle and I think it is good value for money, too. It’s nice to see a jigsaw that appeals to “modern kids” – something in between cartoons and the pretty pictures you get on adult jigsaws. 5 stars.
