I always associate Christmas with jigsaw puzzles, and I'm starting to build up quite a collection of Christmas themed jigsaws, although so far only ones for adults. But this week we were sent a lovely new puzzle for little ones from Ravensburger to review - The Snowman and the Snowdog. Mia has been showing quite an interest in my jigsaws lately as I often have one on the go. She's desperate to help me, but of course they are far too difficult and take too long for her to enjoy the satisfaction of completing one. So it was lovely to have a puzzle that she was able to do too.
The puzzle is aimed at children aged 6+, but is perfect for younger children to complete with a bit of help. The pieces are large, which means that it is easy to spot which part of the design they are from, and sturdy enough that the puzzle can be completed over and over again. They slot together nicely and it's obvious when you've put a piece in the wrong place. It took just just the right amount of time to finish - long enough to be satisfying but not too long that she got bored.
The finished puzzle measures around 50cm by 36cm so it fits nicely on to the coffee table or a large tray. The picture shows the characters from the new The Snowman and the Snowdog film, sequel to the classic The Snowman. The children love both films and we've watched them over and over, and Mia insisted on having it on in the background while we worked on the puzzle! She loved doing the jigsaw together, and was so proud when we finished it.
This puzzle would make a lovely gift for a little one this Christmas!
