Like many families, we have a little princess in our home. She loves Disney’s Cinderella and we’ve watched all the movies. Kallista has outgrown all of her dress-up costumes this year and was feeling a bit sad about it until she received this great 3D Cinderella carriage Puzzle!
When Ravensburger asked if we might be interested in their 3D 72 piece Cinderella Carriage Puzzle, I didn’t even have to ask Kallista as I just knew that she would want to build it! So I kept it a secret from her until it arrived in the post. (This post contains affiliate links)
My children have become very clever and now know what is in the contents of the packages our mail carrier delivers, even before they’ve been opened. They can discriminate between the sounds of building blocks and puzzle pieces; books and art supplies. It’s a real talent at times! Certainly our post is more interesting now than it was when I was a kid (although I’m also known to get excited over a ‘real’ letter arriving from lands far away)!
When Kallista opened up this package, she was very excited to see what was inside, and she wants to say to Ravensburger,
Thank you for the 3D puzzles; they’re very fun!
This puzzle is aimed at children from 6 to 10 years of age, and Kallista is 7 and it was a good ‘fit.’ (What would life be like without puns?)
We all thought that this puzzle would be a little complicated for young hands as the puzzle itself is a globe shape. But Kallista didn’t have any trouble with it at all, as long as she followed the numbering system to put it together. With the other 3D puzzles she’s done, she had more leeway to look at the pattern and put them together in the ‘traditional’ way.
Cinderella’s Carriage is just 72 pieces and doesn’t take too long to do. Kallista had it done in two short sittings (if she’d had her way she would have completed it all at once, but we had to amble off to the library). She said, “it was so easy, easier than the unicorn ones”
Although this puzzle looks complicated, it didn’t look like Kallista thought so at all. Her little hands clicked each plastic puzzle piece into place one by one. And maybe it was easier because her hands are smaller than mine. Once the globe was done, it even felt more durable than expected. It keeps its shape and handles well.
In addition to the globe, there are 5 cardboard pieces that need to fit together for the frame of the carriage. These simply lock together with a little push. This is the part Kallista needed a little help with. She figured out where each piece went, but needed my help to fully lock them into place.
She placed the body on the frame and loved it! Immediately, Kallista started pushing her Cinderella carriage across the front room ‘driving’ it to the ball! No one else is allowed to go near it for fear of being turned into a pumpkin or a toad!
Yes, I think this puzzle has won the heart of our little princess!
This Cinderella Carriage puzzle would be great as a gift for:
- To accessorise a bedroom
- When a child is ill and needs to take their mind off of feeling rotten
- To bring out on a rainy day at home, while camping, etc.
