Alongside my Used Car Lot Puzzle, I also received A Day at the Beach Puzzle from Ravensburger for review.
This 500 piece puzzle features a beach scene as created by artist Andy Walker and features all the things we enjoy about A Day at the Beach, including a Punch and Judy show, donkey rides and sandcastle building.
I decided to take a slightly different tactic with this puzzle as it appeared to be a bit harder than my previous two 500 piece puzzles. This was due to the fact there is a lot of beige sand and blue sky in the picture.
I created the border first and then separated out the remaining pieces into four piles. One contained mostly just blue in it, one contained blue with some other colours/features in it, one contained colours and the other was mostly beige sand. I thought that by doing this it might make completing the puzzle easier.
I started with the sky and pier and this section, apart from a few pieces, took shape without too much difficulty.
Next I moved onto the coloured sections and these came together really easily. Next it was the sand. This proved a bit more difficult than the other sections but it wasn’t long before the majority of this puzzle was done.
The last few sky blue pieces were put into place, and after only two and a half hours, this A Day at the Beach Puzzle from Ravensburger was complete. I couldn’t believe how quickly it had come together and I wonder did my different tactic help!
WHAT I LOVED ABOUT THE A DAY AT THE BEACH PUZZLE FROM RAVENSBURGER:
- High quality puzzle.
- Easy to do and complete. I finished it in two and a half hours.
- Appears difficult and complicated due to the lack of variety of colours but wasn’t at all.
- This 500 piece puzzle is aimed at ages 10+ and should not prove difficult to complete.
- The softclick technology that produces a smooth puzzle to minimise glare on the puzzle image.
- Contains all the aspects of A Day at the Beach that everyone loves including donkey rides and building sandcastles.
- Measures 49 x 36cm when complete.
WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE ABOUT THE A DAY AT THE BEACH PUZZLE FROM RAVENSBURGER:
This 500 piece A Day at the Beach puzzle from Ravensburger was easy to complete and enjoyable at the same time. As mentioned I took a different approach to completing this puzzle and I think it helped. The puzzle is aimed at ages 10+ and should be more than doable for that age range.
So if you are looking for a puzzle for yourself or a child age 10 years of age or above, then this puzzle may just fit the bill. The A Day at the Beach puzzle retails at around £7.99 and is available from Amazon and other major retailers. Why not check out the full range of puzzles available at Ravensburger. They cater for both children and adults!
