What we say: “Being huge Harry Potter fans and also quite taken with completing a jigsaw or two, my sons and I were excited to try this 3D puzzle of the Astronomy Tower at Hogwarts. Although my children are a little younger than the recommended age of 14, I am (unfortunately!) far older than this so I thought it something we would be able to complete together, maybe with just a little more help and guidance from me than with a normal 2D puzzle.
The pieces are made of foam and some are very, very small, others larger and easier to recommend.
The instructions were basic and simple; time to start…
Oh how wrong was I?! This is truly a puzzle for dedicated jigsaw fans!!! Two hours in (I kid you not), many choice words later and this is where we are…
I now know why my (so-called!) friend Amanda from Mojomums passed this onto me; she and her family felt it too hard for them and decided to torture me with it! Undoubtedly, the puzzle will be amazing if we can ever finish it! I would recommend setting it up on a table that you don’t use often, where you can come back to it and dedicate time and patience to the building of the puzzle. Not a gift for any novice ‘puzzlers’, but certainly a challenge…we are still going and I will let you know when it is complete!”
The Wrebbit 3D Hogwarts Astronomy Tower Puzzle costs £39.99 and is available from Ryman.
