It wasn’t until Little Miss C started reading the HTTYD books that I became familiar with Hiccup and Toothless, the stars of the How to Train Your Dragon books and films. Following on from reading the books came the films and it didn’t take long at all before she became a huge fan of Cressida Cowell’s magical creations. It goes without saying that she is massively excited about the new film How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World.
As with most large film releases like this, there is rather a lot of related merchandise on the market right now – or arriving soon, if what I saw at last week’s Toy Fair is anything to go by. LMC has seen the hype surrounding the film’s release and was therefore delighted when Ravensburger sent us this How to Train Your Dragon 3 jigsaw puzzle to review.
With 100 pieces the puzzle has a suggested age range of 6+ and it seemed to be the perfect size for 8-year-old LMC. Large enough to be a bit of a challenge on a wet Sunday afternoon, but not so complicated that she needed help or that it took too long to complete.
With Toothless and Hiccup taking centre stage in the picture, they are joined by various other characters from the film, including Astrid and Stormfly. There are plenty of characters in the picture making it relatively easy to complete those parts of the puzzle. Meanwhile, the scenery sections near the bottom provide a bit more of a challenge.
For How to Train Your Dragon fans who enjoy jigsaw puzzles this makes the perfect gift for occupying them when the weather outside is encouraging you to stay in the warm and dry inside.
This How to Train Your Dragon 3 jigsaw puzzle is produced by Ravensburger and is priced at £8.99. It contains 100 XXL pieces and is aimed at children aged 6+. It is available to buy online here.
