Ravensburger Puzzle Club - Me to You Bathtime puzzle

I am lucky enough to be part of the Ravensburger Puzzle review Club.

Lucky because in our house the children love puzzles and so they were thrilled to receive the Me to You Bathtime puzzle which is a 1000 piece puzzle that features the loveable Tatty Teddy.

Me to You - Bathtime
Along with the puzzle we also received the Puzzle Store that is an all in one puzzle workstation that not only allows you to safely store away your puzzle when you are in the process of completing it but has handy trays that mean you can sort out the pieces into different pieces - for instance all the edges in one tray.  This means no lost pieces and because the lid closes securely, your puzzle is held in place until the next time.

The puzzle is aimed at those age 12+ and because it is 1000 pieces I have to agree with this recommendation although my Middle Son did offer the odd bit of help.  The picture was well illustrated and we found the image on the front of the box was easy to follow when we got stuck.  The picture had lovely detail to it and there was plenty of detail to discover.  This Me to You puzzle is the 3rd in the range.

The pieces themselves were made of sturdy cardboard and although one piece did bend on the connecting piece (my daughter was determined it fitted THERE!) the pieces connected well and held securely in place.  The pieces also had a 'matt' type finish to them to prevent glare - wow puzzles have come a long way since I was a child!

The puzzle was finished over a week or so with us dipping in and finding pieces whenever we passed the Puzzle Store.  At 1000 pieces it is challenging but not too hard that you give up. Great to complete as a family as the picture appeals to both young and old.

The puzzle measured 70 x 50cm.
