Tower Bridge - £34.99
Make a unique scale model of 1 of Londons Iconic landmarks, once built it measures over 1 metre long. It would be a fab gift for anyone who loves our capital. Like the other models, it has 216 pieces and they are all numbered for ease of build.
Big Ben - £24.99
This comes with a real working clock! It was the puzzle that we decided to get busy with and have a go at building first.
As you can see all the puzzle pieces are clearly numbered and they all have a direction arrow on them. This makes building really simple. We decided to group all the number together to make building easier and got making the model from the bottom up.
We found that once you get the hang of the puzzle pieces and getting the pieces the right way up by looking a the arrows it takes no time at all to build.
You have the option to have the working clock face in or out, you can just have the non-working version in. The clock just fits inside the top part of the model and once you have attached it to the stand you are all done.
These are a fab gift idea for the older puzzles, although all the puzzles are suitable for ages 10 plus, it took us about 30 minutes to build. But it is the type of model you can do a little of and come back to it, thanks to the numbered pieces. What do you think of 3d puzzles, do you fancy giving 1 a go?
