Was looking for something different in the puzzle line for my daughter and come across the Simpsons puzzle ball from Ravensbureger.
The box contained 240 plastic shaped pieces,one stand and a guide.
The concept of the puzzle ball is very clever and very simple, slot the shaped pieces together to form a ball!! the pieces are sturdy plastic and very durable and will take a lot of punishment and they some times need to as the pieces need a bit of persuading sometimes to slot together as they are curved and can be quite awkward to put together nicely so the lines are smooth.
This will probably not appeal to hardcore puzzle do-er's as the pieces are numbered on the inside but there is still the challenge of finding them and getting ti to slot together nicely.
My 9yr old really enjoyed doing this and took a few hours to do it, once done they display nicely on a plastic saucer (provided) and can be done again and again.
Probably would not pay full price and bought mine from e-bay for £4!!!
