Puzzling Fun & the Puzzling Spring Giveaway

Puzzling Spring Adventures going on around here! We’re busting out some puzzles to keep us busy  on those rainy days! No need for cleaning, right? ha!

Puzzling Spring Adventures with @Ravensburger

It’s been a while since we did any puzzles and the chance to review some seemed exciting! There’s something relaxing about putting together a puzzle. Which is odd because it’s also challenging and, sometimes, a little frustrating. But, right when you wanna scream, that piece you’ve been searching for suddenly pops out and you can be on your way to the next piece! So refreshing!

Sharing the fun puzzling puzzles that are our current and future adventures! We hope to do lots more in the coming months! We turned on some awesome music, gathered up some finger foods, and enjoyed each others company. It was a great night!

Puzzling Spring Adventures: 3D London Bus PuzzleI had always wanted to put together a 3D puzzle but, being totally real, was too chicken that I’d stink at it. So, obviously I was super excited when the chance arose to put this baby together! The 3D London Bus Puzzle was super fun to put together. I was also nervous about being able to build it, as I’m not a builder in any way. But the awesome instructions enabled me to successfully build the awesome puzzle, almost entirely on my own.

Now, being real, I cheated. A lot. According to the husband anyway. There are numbers on the back of the pieces and a set of photo instructions. Being real, I honestly thought you were supposed to use the numbers. Of course, once he spit out his argument, I realized I was wrong. So, did it for a while without the numbers. Then I went back because it was so peaceful to simply put it together.

So, yeah, I cheated.

We also received the fantastically gorgeous Disney’s Cinderella Jigsaw Puzzle (1000 Piece) from Ravensburger. The image is from the 1950’s version. We’ve not started this one yet, but can’t wait to do so! It’s stunningly gorgeous! Part of me is tempted to put it away with my Disney collection… we shall see. It is a Collector’s Edition, after all. The puzzle is part of a series of puzzles that include Snow White (1937), Bambi (1942), Fantasia (1940) and Dumbo (1941).

    I was so happy to see this site with all the different options of puzzles for all ages available. With our family currently being quarantined my kids have been looking for new things to do. I am going to order us a few puzzles we have never done a 3D one.

    I’ve never completed a 3-D puzzle either, but it looks intriguing. We will probably try something a little simpler first, I’m a bit of a chicken too.

    I absolutely love this giveaway!! It must be true that great minds think alike, because I wrote what you wrote about wanting to try a 3D puzzle!! I haven’t done a puzzle by myself in a long time. I used to find peace ☮️ and quiet when doing them. In my opinion, puzzle giveaways like this one are awesome, and I would try to enter as many as I can! I also like putting them together with my grandkids. Puzzles make excellent gifts! I shared to Pinterest, Twitter, & Facebook! Thank you for sharing and all your hard work ?

    I love that there are numbers on the back of the pieces and a set of photo instructions, I know that its cheating but when my granddaughter wants to put puzzles together she gets frustrated if she can’t do it by herself, this would help her alot.

    I’ve worked a lot of jigsaws in my time. My Mom loved them, and I worked them with her. She always like Ravensburger puzzles. They were always good ones, with pieces that weren’t flimsy.

    What wonderful puzzles that are being given away. I’ve never built a 3D puzzle before, it sounds fun but a little scary too. These would be so much fun putting together with my family or just by myself.

    I love the Merlin’s Laboratory and the Animal Selfie puzzles. I really like puzzles that are anything animal and ones that have a lot of different pictures in it. The more in the picture the better. To me it just makes it a little more challenging.

    I’ve never done a 3D puzzle so I probably would have used the numbers too haha, looks interesting though. My youngest son loves doing puzzles with me so I got a 2000 piece pokemon puzzle for us to do together. I definitely see a few puzzles on their website that both of would love!
