This review is from: Ravensburger Lovely Seaside – 500 Piece Puzzle (Toy) This is my first Ravensburger purchase in a long time. I remember Ravensburger puzzle pieces to be of very high quality and fifteen years since my first purchase I purchased this one. Ravensburger costs about a third more than Ceaco, but the quality is about 4 times better for the money. Each piece is treated so that there is no glare, whatsoever. Each piece is super thick and fits perfectly into the other puzzle pieces so that there is no need to guess if you have found the right spot for it. This is a 500 piece puzzle and we finished it in one day. I would probably not purchase another 500 piece puzzle because it costs about $13. A 1000 piece puzzle is only a few dollars more and would probably provide more entertainment value. I have checked around price-wise. Amazon has the best deals, especially since I am a Prime member and can get the free 2-day shipping! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 6 of 6 people found the following review helpful Worth the money, February 27, 2014 By Carson – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Ravensburger Lovely Seaside – 500 Piece Puzzle (Toy) Only within the last few months have I started to do puzzles. I work them with a senior citizen and they are a great way to bring people together of many age groups to enjoy each other’s company and conversation.It does not take long to understand not all puzzles are made the same. The Ravensburger are by far the best of the best. Their pieces are cut very clean and fit with the precision of clock parts. This may not mean much to you unless you try putting together a cheaper one. It becomes highly irritating when you have to trim off the paper because the manufacture failed to properly cut the piece all the way through leaving a jagged edge or the backing is still attached.Well worth the money to get a Ravensburger from the get go and be done with it. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 8 of 9 people found the following review helpful love this puzzle, February 13, 2012 By Dana (TN, USA) – This review is from: Ravensburger Lovely Seaside – 500 Piece Puzzle (Toy) This is the second Ravensburger puzzle I have put together, and I love the quality. I tried to help my son with a cheaper quality puzzle last year and quickly gave up, because the pieces bent/broke easily, and seemed to fit into places they did not belong, yet didn’t fit well in their proper places – much more frustrating than fun. Both of the Ravensburger puzzles I have done were enjoyable because they went together beautifully, and the pieces are sturdy and well-cut so that they only fit where they belong. I like the linen texture of the pieces, too. This Lovely Seaside picture has so many wonderful colors and so much going on that it was pretty easy to finish (in fact, my 11 year old daughter and I completed it in probably 3 hours total, over the weekend, while our first 500 piece puzzle of a cardinal had a lot of areas that looked very similar and took many weeks). I like this picture so much that I decided to frame and hang it once the puzzle was finished. I’ve never really been big into puzzles and didn’t realize there was so much difference between a cheap puzzle and a nice brand like Ravensburger – we happened upon the first Ravensburger puzzle quite accidentally – but I’m impressed and will likely buy more of them. Maybe we’ll try a 1000 piece next time! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
