Despicable Me 2 – Review

Despicable Me 2 is a new 500piece puzzle from Ravensburger, with an RRP £9.99 and although it doesn’t come with a recommended age range, you will need to be a good puzzler to work this one out.

I love the film Despicable Me 2, and this puzzle looked perfect for the boy to have a go at. Despite the fact it is only a 500 piece puzzle it was deceptively difficult and the boy soon gave up as did Dad. I thought I was pretty good, if maybe a little out of practice, but this puzzle did have me scratching my head as to where to start.

The edges are the traditional start point, but even these proved tricky. The main puzzle was of course despicable! Once I had worked out the eyes, and mouths the rest was a sea of yellow and blue, “Minioness”. I don’t have much spare time, even in the summer holidays but I found myself determined to find a home for every last piece of this puzzle, and the boy came back for the final pieces.

As I would expect from a Ravensburger Puzzle the pieces were well cut, sturdy and form a great finish, when the puzzle is complete. I loved this puzzle, and think it would be a perfect gift, for puzzle, or Despicable Me fans. I plan to see how long this one will take Bingo Granny, she is a pro puzzler. It took me about 5 hours in total, that was over a total of about 4 days. The perfect puzzle with its cute Minions for a rainy day.

    1. Yes I stupidly thought with only 500 pieces that the boy could do it! I think he managed 5 pieces before he gave up, and if I hadn’t had the box I would still be there now guessing! Great puzzle though as they are supposed to make you think…
