GOOD POINTS: This amazing London Bridge puzzle is just one of a brilliant new range of 3D puzzles from Ravensburger which certainly puts a whole new perspective on jigsaws, and makes a fantastic gift for any young puzzlers who are looking for a new challenge!

Ravensburger London Tower Bridge Building 3D PuzzleThe puzzle is certainly not your traditional setup. To start with, the puzzle pieces are plastic to give the model a strong and sturdy quality, and many of the pieces are hinged to create brilliantly rounded corners on the tower structures, adding increased stability to the build, as well as eliminating any need for glue.

There are a generous number of puzzle pieces, all small in size but of a high quality plastic which has been precision cut to ensure the pieces fit together accurately. The printed design on the front of the pieces is simply superb, with wonderful wall and window detailing that gives an impressive finish.

The main puzzle pieces form the two tall towers, and the back of these pieces are numbered so that younger children can build the structures up either by simply following the numbers in order, or alternatively by eye if they want to increase the challenge! Note that the accompanying instructions booklet is very easy to follow and uses detailed colour diagrams to guide your child through all stages of construction.

The set also includes a number of other plastic accessory pieces to construct the rest of the 'building'. These include the turrets on the top ofRavensburger London Tower Bridge Building 3D Puzzle each tower; the two smaller towers at each end which are made up of four interlocking pieces each, again beautifully detailed to highlight every nook and cranny; the plastic mouldings which each of the towers sit on to raise the bridge off the ground; and of course the connecting top and bottom bridge pieces (including City of London emblem), complete with opening drawbridge! The card road markings add a really nice finishing touch!

In our opinion, this is a really innovative addition to the world of puzzles - a great fun build with fantastic quality and a very impressive finish!

BAD POINTS: The finished structure is quite large so you will need a good sized space to display. The puzzle is quite simplistic in that it is only the two towers that really form the jigsaw, the rest of it is more model-building.
