Peony Cottage is available from Ravensburger this 1,000 piece puzzle is RRP £11.99 and is number 8 in the series of country cottages. There is no age guide on the puzzle but I would say that 12+ is a good guide.
Peony cottage is as the name suggests a puzzle based on the quaint and colourful English cottages, and with the addition of birds and butterflies this puzzle was interesting to complete and look at. I found peony cottage an easy puzzle to work on as there was a good contrast of colours and some interesting little touches with hidden birds, bees, and ladybirds. I expect to finish a 1,000 piece puzzle in around four to five hours, and found the Peony cottage was around three hours, but this could be because I am getting quicker!
I enjoyed completing peony cottage more than the Delphinium cottage puzzle I completed recently, as I liked the bright coloured flowers and found the puzzle built quickly as there wasn’t as much blue sky. I am so used to the Ravensburger soft click technology of these puzzles now that I take it for granted that all puzzles will fit as well as a Ravensburger. I also find myself looking for the signature blue backed pieces which I find much easier to sort into the right sides. I also love the addition of the separate picture sheet. I find this is much easier to use than the box lid when completing the puzzle and means that the box doesn’t get lent on or damaged.
While I don’t think this is the first puzzle I would choose if faced with a whole shelf of puzzles. The Peony cottage has captured my interest with its very British feel and I can see will be very popular with regular puzzlers.
