This review is from: Ravensburger Seaside Beauty – 1000 Pieces Puzzle (Toy) I am a pretty big fan of the Ravensburger puzzles for the quality of the pieces. They’re thick, they fit together without force, and it’s easy to tell in most cases if a piece is in the correct location even in uniform color areas (like the blue sky). The pieces also have a nice textured feel which gives them a nice touch. The one thing that I did not like about this particular puzzle was the image. Not that it’s a beach scene, I actually like those and is why I bought this puzzle, but the quality of the image itself. I am not sure what they were going for, either they ran it through some heavy digital filters to change the contrast … or they tried to make it look painted even though its a photograph … or something. In several areas the image looks terribly pixelated up close. If you don’t know what that means, it looks blocky similar to if you take a digital picture and zoom in too close. It was still a fun puzzle, fairly easy overall. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 7 of 7 people found the following review helpful Ravishing Ravensburger…, March 26, 2014 By MamaHen – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Ravensburger Seaside Beauty – 1000 Pieces Puzzle (Toy) This is your standard exceptional quality puzzle by Ravensburger. For those who are not familiar with Ravensburger, the puzzle pieces are of a canvas-style appearance, are carefully cut with SHARP tools, fit cleanly together, have exquisite detail that matches the cover, and are thick enough to hold together. This is the only puzzle maker from whom I would consider buying a more challenging puzzle. My daughter loves the fact that there is very little puzzle debris in the box (or, as she calls it, puzzle poop). I am addicted to jigsaws, and of all the puzzles I have ever owned or worked, Ravensburger is the best. This particular puzzle was both easy and difficult: the sea meets the sky in an easily identified line, the shading of the sky is straightforward, and the greenery is distinctive, making it easy; however, the rocks and sand were challenging and took more than twice as long as the rest of the puzzle. When I finished this one, my husband looked longingly at the image and offered to take me to Hawaii again. That was the best $20 ever spent!!! 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 A great challenge for a 1,000 piece puzzle, June 17, 2013 By Imme77 – = Durability: = Fun: = Educational: This review is from: Ravensburger Seaside Beauty – 1000 Pieces Puzzle (Toy) We just completed this puzzle and were very happy with the result. With so much blue and green in the picture, it created a great challenge for a 1,000 piece puzzle and toke us longer then it normally takes for a puzzle this size. But we were up for the challenge and the end result is awesome, makes me want to book a trip somewhere tropical for this winter. 😉 We have done a few Ravensburger puzzles now and you can see the quality of the work in the manufacturing of them from the moment you open the box. Once again, no missing pieces from this manufacturer so I am not sure why so many people comment about missing pieces from them. If your looking for a challenging puzzle in your puzzle size, I think Ravensburger could be your answer. 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.
