The Chrysler Building is just one of a new range of Ravensburger 3D puzzles that light up. The puzzle contains 216 pieces, standing 48cm tall when complete RRP £24.99. The boy was very keen to help me complete this puzzle. We chose to use the numbered pieces rather than completing using the patterned side. Starting at the bottom we built the puzzle up using the clear inserts. I will admit this was a little fiddly. You will need some patience to complete this model.
Once complete and with the addition of 3 AAA batteries, this Ravensburger 3D puzzle lights up in ever-changing colours. The shape is very authentic to the Chrysler building in new York. With lights shining up from the base this model was fun, and great to look at when complete.
The Empire State building is also available as a Ravensburger 3D night-time edition. The puzzle contains 216 pieces, requires 3 AAA batteries (not included) finished height 48.5cm RRP £24.99. The Empire state building was our favourite of these puzzles.
There was so much detail to look at on the completed model. With 5 different light effects that scroll through. This model is almost as good as the real thing! Fitting some of the flooring and clear pieces again takes some patience, but it is worth it when finished.
Finally we completed the final New York Landmark the Statue of Liberty. This Ravensburger 3D model has 108 pieces, is 37.5cm tall when complete RRP £19.99. The Statue of liberty has great detail and was we were a little disappointed that there were not more pieces. The base of the model is made up from the puzzle pieces. The statue comes in a few pieces, but it would have been nice to have a few more.
The models still has some great features and when complete, looks very authentic. The clever way that Ravensburger 3D puzzles fit together allow some complex shapes and a great finish.
We have enjoyed our Ravensburger 3D puzzles, especially the night editions, as these would be perfect on display for any fan of New York City!
