Emoji XXL100 pc puzzle from Ravensburger
Emojis... You can't escape them - they are everywhere on the social media platforms these days. I am not the biggest user of emojis or emoticons. I had actually to check out the difference between the two: apparently the range of emojis is wider than emoticons and includes the images of animals, transport etc. Whether you love them or hate them, you can't deny - they are here to stay, and they do play an important part in communication.
To celebrate the significance of emojis, Ravensburger has come up with a new Emoji XXL 100-piece puzzle.
This is a bright and colourful, very busy collage of emojis of different kinds and sizes.
When completed, it measures 49x36cm.
The puzzle pieces are made from high quality board. They are big enough for children to work on the puzzle.
It didn't take long for my son Eddie (who's soon going to be 6) to assemble this puzzle.
I did help him a bit to sort out the frame pieces, then he completed it on his own. As soon as he did it, he asked me if he could break it up and re-build it.
He loved the puzzle, and was in stitches on finding several pile of poo emojis which are shaped like a soft-serve ice cream. With eyes.
I don't know what it is with boys and the toilet jokes, but when Eddie's friend came over for a play date today after school, both of them laughed their socks off, discussing the merits of the pile of poo emoji.
This puzzle will make a special gift for anyone with a wicked sense of humour or a big emoji fan.
