Ravensburger Minion, Prisoner Shaped 54pc 3D Jigsaw Puzzle – Review
Do you like the minions? The twins love watching them on TV and we even have a giant Minion teddy. When asked would we like to review one of the 3D puzzles from Minions I jumped at the chance. We actually have two now so the boys quite happily have one each.
The puzzles come with 54 pieces and each piece is numbered to make it easy for you to assemble. Unlike a normal jigsaw it’s all about doing it in number order rather than matching the pieces. This makes it somewhat easier than a large puzzle. The puzzle is aimed at children over 7 years old and I can see why as it needs number recognition and patience. Once built it was fine for the twins aged 3 to handle and play with but remember it will have small parts when broken.
After completing two Minions and then re building after breakages I feel I am an expert at them now. My advice and tip would be sort all your numbers into order before hand. This makes it much quicker to assemble.
Once you start adding pieces it clicks together and becomes quite sturdy. You will notice every third of four pieces seems to click slightly different from the others like it’s really holding it together. It does seem flimsy to begin with but once your about 10 pieces in it starts to become more solid.
The final 3 or 4 pieces can be a little tricky to put in as you need to be gentle but once clicked in it the Minion itself is extremely sturdy.
Each minion comes with its own little display stand as you can see below. I love this as you can collect them and put the on display. The twins would love these in their bedroom but I know they wouldn’t last very long. Jack has kind of adopted them for now on his window with his giant Minion ornament.
You can see the boys are extremely happy with their new minions and I am definitely going to look into some other 3D puzzles now I know how easy they are to assemble.
You can buy your own minion puzzle from lots of places. Ravensburger have a huge range to choose from.
