365 Little Things is a 500 piece puzzle from Ravensburger RRP £7.99 suitable for ages 10+.
This is my first puzzle for 2017 and it was nice to start with a fun smaller puzzle. The 365 Little things are an interesting and eclectic mix of the familiar and unusual objects you might find in the bottom of a draw. From the box the picture looks photographic. On closer inspection of the pieces you realise that in fact the 365 Little Things are illustrated. The artist Mike Spike, is famous for his photographic illustrative style.
365 Little things was both a challenge and enjoyable as you discover the little treasures illustrated on the puzzle. there are coins, and trinkets that somehow look all familiar and I particularly liked the little spotty pig which I’m sure was something my Nan owned.
This puzzle has been a complete treasure and I’m sure will be on that I will enjoy completing again. It took some time to complete as there are no particularly blocks of colour to follow. I found the best way was to identify pieces from the individual items like all the coins and shells. completing it this way didn’t make it any less enjoyable.
Completing the 365 Little things puzzle was an achievement as I found it pretty tricky for a 500 piece puzzle. I loved the challenge and the style of the illustration as it is different to doing a photograph or painted picture.
