Ravensburger The Curious Cupboard is a series of puzzles with different cupboard contents from the kitchen, inventors, gardeners and much more. No. 6 in the series is The Collectors Cupboard and I couldn’t wait to give it a try. Being a 1000 piece puzzle it is the perfect challenge and one that I know my mum when she pops round and the kids love to come and help with.
This puzzle features a large shelving unit filled with more than you can ever imagine. I thought when I started this that I could see a few cats, a few clocks, a few bottles etc, but it’s not until you get into it that you realise that there are so many cats and so many circular shaped things, be it clocks, cogs, buttons, the list goes on.
There are hats, perfume bottles, stamps and so much more. These pictures really don’t do it justice but I can honestly say this has been one of the most enjoyable puzzles I have ever done! My mum contributed along with my daughter and we loved working together as three generations finding the pieces. It is really addictive and so fun to do – you really can’t work out where a piece goes straightaway as there are so many options for it. The backgrounds to each shelving area vary too, from floral, to Chinese style and more, which obviously help in putting the pieces together but at the same time confuse you as there is so much variety across the puzzle.
Being addictive we soon finished it and again I have to say I’ve absolutely loved doing this puzzle, it was an absolute pleasure and one I can’t wait to do again in the future. Puzzles in the Ravensburger The Curious Cupboard series are clearly fun to do and I’d love to try others in the range. The detail is fascinating and gets your mind ticking more than you think trying to work out where the pieces go amongst the picture.
If you love puzzles or just want to give on a try then I’d highly recommend checking out the Ravensburger The Curious Cupboard series, one I’ve really enjoyed and also one I think would make a lovely gift for anyone that enjoys a good jigsaw!
