Loopy Laboratory Puzzle 200 pieces

Ravensburger Puzzle Club - Loopy Laboratory Puzzle 200 pieces

As part of the Ravensburger Puzzle Club, we were sent a 200 piece Loopy Laboratory Puzzle to test our skill!

The Loopy Laboratory is suitable for age 8+, and my 9 year old son was delighted to see it! The design is based on an image from Colin Thompson's book The Last Alchemist. It is a very 'busy' picture, which really tests your skill as puzzling! The scene is full of some crazy images, including animals, books, patterns and lots lots more! Included inside the box is a piece of paper with the image on, so you don't have to keep referring to the box. We found this very handy, as there was a couple of us doing it, one could have the box, one could have the sheet!

Using our puzzle store, we came up with a plan of creating the outside of the puzzle and working our way in.

It was then a case of working out colours and matching patterns. Each piece of the puzzle has a linin-finish print, to help prevent glare on the puzzle, especially handy when you are really concentrating to find a piece under the halogen lights!

The whole puzzle took us about 2 hours to complete. It measures a whopping 49.3cms x 36.2cm when completed. Jordan was chuffed to see all his hard work pay off with his completed puzzle, it has been lovingly stored away in his Puzzle Store! It's a brilliant puzzle for someone who likes a challenge!
