Ravensburger Porsche 911 R 3D jigsaw puzzle
"The Porsche 911 design has remained unchanged since 1963. This is what I call true creativity."
Jean Michel Rene Souche, Knife Paintings: Lozengist Movement
"When I grow up, I will drive a Ferrari or a Porsche." (Eddie)
Do the sleek lines of a Porsche 911 R make your heart beat faster? If you love this elegant classic car, you will enjoy a splendid Porsche 911 R 3d jigsaw puzzle from Ravensburger.
The Porsche 911 R puzzle is built on a scale of 1:18, and is a thorough and detailed miniature of the famous car.
In the last few years we have acquired quite a big collection of 3D puzzles from Ravensburger. Most of them are on display on book shelves, and they last well (if you don't knock them down).
The Porsche found home on the shelf next to the 3D American flag sneaker jigsaw puzzle.
The puzzle comes in a sturdy box and includes 108 puzzle pieces, plus the plastic car base and a set of wheels (which you also need to assemble).
All the puzzle pieces are numbered in the back and have a mini arrow, which shows where the next piece should be attached. The pieces slot into each other with ease and hold well.
It is aimed at children from 10 years onwards, but my 8-year-old did the job well without any help. (I guess he takes after me, a puzzle addict). While he worked on the puzzle, I watched him, whether he needed my help, but No, he managed perfectly well on his own.
There is an illustrated guide enclosed on how to assemble the car, with the instructions for the wheels and overall design.
As Christmas is approaching rapidly - blink, and it's here - and you're still looking for special gifts, consider this excellent jigsaw puzzle for any jigsaw puzzle fan, or someone who admires classic cars.
