Ravensburger Puzzle Factory Jigsaw

When I was given the chance to review the Ravensburger Puzzle Factory jigsaw I was happy to accept. I love doing jigsaws and the fact that the Ravensburger Happy Days Lake District 1000 piece puzzle had taken me months to complete had faded from my mind. I was attracted by the cheerful picture on the Puzzle Factory box, which shows a colourful and crazy scene of life in a puzzle factory. I was still happy at completing the Big Ben 3D puzzle in a day and was convinced I could easily finish this new puzzle.

Ravensburger puzzle factoryThe picture depicts the  magical secrets of a puzzle factory, specially created for Ravensburger by British artist Edmond Davis. I love the imagination behind the picture, the dump truck picking up the pieces in the jigsaw mine and then they are sent up the conveyor belt to be sorted.  The factory looks a fun place to work, with a swimming pool and clowns making an appearance. It is brightly coloured and eye catching.

Puzzle FactoryWith any jigsaw puzzle I try and do the edge first. It is quite hard finding all the edge pieces in a box of 1000 but when you do it is easy to identify where they go due to the colours. I then started to try and fill in a corner section by looking for all the blue pieces. The pieces are well made and fit together perfectly, the challenge is actually finding the ones you are looking for. A few weeks later and my optimistic view that this would be finished quickly has been shattered. I have not made much progress.

It does not help that I only get moments to myself and put a few bits together whilst cooking or cleaning. The jigsaw is a great distraction however and I am really enjoying doing it. I wonder how long this will take me to complete. Do you enjoy doing jigsaws? How long do they generally take you?

I was sent the Puzzle Factory jigsaw in return for an honest review.

      I have the same problem with my son who seems to undo bits as fast as I do them!

    I love jigsaws and this looks like a great one. Just started one I picked up in the charity shop and didn’t look at the size of it properly so I now have to move it onto a bigger space! Edges first, it’s the law (probably) 🙂 Good luck with getting this finished!

      Thanks, I think it may take a few months but that is the challenge. The hard part is finding the space. I have a large piece of wood which I can move from table to table as required.
