Ravensburger The Christmas Shop 1000 piece puzzle review

This time I think we have met our match with the Ravensburger 'The Christmas Shop' 1000 piece puzzle!  Although each month we always complete our puzzles this months offering has taken some doing...

The puzzle is a depiction of, as you can guess from the name of the puzzle, a shop full of Christmas gifts, toys and everything that is Christmas.  The attention to detail is very impressive - there is even a Ravensburger puzzle on the shelf in the shop.

Father Christmas is there of course as is an endearing reindeer peering through the shop window at whats happening inside.

It is this attention to detail that makes the puzzle less than easy, with so much going on and so many colours and different objects to piece together there was no easy place to start once the corners were in place.  We tried sorting the pieces into piles that had colours on the same in the hope this would make things simpler, which it did to a certain degree, but all in all the puzzle had us hooked - we didn't want to be beaten!

I have to admit we are yet to finish the puzzle completely and am sure we will within the next few days.

The Ravensburger 'The Christmas Shop' puzzle is certainly for those that like to be challenged and take their time over their jigsaws.

We loved the attention to detail and as always the pieces were great quality with no rough edges.
