3D puzzle: a craft fun for young and old!
Doing puzzles is one of the most popular pastimes among children and adults. When the first 3D puzzles came onto the market, this relaxing hobby became even more appealing and - in the truest sense of the word - took on another dimension. If you puzzle together the famous Eiffel Tower or Big Ben as a three-dimensional body, you need not only patience but also a certain amount of dexterity and spatial imagination. But the effort is worth it: when the last piece is in place, the tinkerer can look at his work with pride. That is why these beautiful constructions should be given a fitting place after successful assembly - either as interesting room decorations or as parts of a collection worth seeing, which is expanded step by step with self-made models.
New York skyline, RMS Titanic, Eiffel Tower? A large selection of interesting puzzle motifs
Famous buildings and sights are perfect as three-dimensional puzzle motifs. Colosseum, Statue of Liberty or the Burj Al Arab - with the detailed 3D replicas from Revell, puzzle lovers and curious explorers go on a world tour. Particularly demanding tinkerers opt for skyline replicas. The Revell range includes city views of London, Paris and a New York skyline. The fact that Revell, as a renowned manufacturer of model kits, also has attractive puzzle motifs on offer for technology fans will come as no surprise to anyone. How about, for example, a replica of the legendary RMS Titanic or the new RMS Titanic with LED? Also very popular are the red double-decker buses that are on the road in London or the puzzle of the Notre Dame de Paris.
Further criteria for the puzzle selection
Those who choose a 3D puzzle should not only pay attention to the motif, but also to the degree of difficulty. To make the selection easier, the number of components and the required construction time are indicated in the description of the individual puzzles. Whether beginner or advanced - Revell has the right puzzle object for every requirement in its online range. For the first attempt, a 20-piece puzzle such as 'Leaning Tower of Pisa' or 'Tour Eiffel' is recommended. It is somewhat trickier and more time-consuming to create 'Big Ben' or 'Neuschwanstein Castle'. For the most demanding puzzle lovers, we recommend making the Cologne Cathedral or the magnificent Sagrada Familia. To assemble these famous landmarks from 179 and 184 puzzle pieces, respectively, you should plan on a construction time of three to four hours.
Good training for fine motor skills and spatial awareness
Putting together a spatial structure from puzzle pieces is an exciting challenge. Experienced puzzle fans therefore proceed particularly systematically when doing spatial puzzles. They first sort the pieces in advance. This way, you can quickly see which puzzle pieces belong at the base of the object, which ones form the upper end and so on. After pre-sorting, it is much easier to build up the desired object floor by floor. Inserting the matching pieces requires some skill and, above all, a certain amount of spatial imagination. 3D puzzles are therefore recommended for children from the age of 10.
