The kids and I often enjoy doing puzzles together, and since they are all into superheroes these days, the new Avengers Age of Ultron puzzle from Ravensburger was a great addition to their puzzle collection. This is an XXL 100 piece jigsaw puzzle that is recommended for age 6+
The puzzle features all the main characters from the new Avengers movie (Age of Ultron) that will be released soon in the UK. The film is a sequel to Marvel Avenger’s Assemble, so all of the characters on the puzzle are recognisable without needing to see the new movie. Many of the Avengers are instantly identifiable to children anyway, since the characters are so iconic – especially Hulk, Iron Man and Captain America.
The puzzle is made up of 100 pieces which are of a decent and manageable size, and as with all Ravensburger puzzles they are good quality and fit together easily.
This 100 piece puzzle is recommended for age 6+, as seems to be usual for the 100 piece Ravensburger puzzles. This seems about right for a child to be able to put together the puzzle independently. Z is 6 years old and was able to manage the puzzle, but my younger boys (5 and 3) also enjoyed this puzzle just with a little more help.
There are some challenging areas of the puzzle like around the edges where the pieces have similar textures, and my boys enjoyed that challenge as well as putting together the easier sections of recognisable characters.
The illustration on the puzzle is very life like, so you can easily recognise the actors of the movie, rather than being in a more cartoonish style.
Once the puzzle is finished, it shows characters including Hawkeye, Black Widow, Hulk, Captain America Thor and Iron Man.
The Ravensburger Avengers XXL Puzzle is available on Amazon with an RRP of 7.99
