A Little Bit About puzzleball® Puzzles by Ravensburger
Precisely curved, plastic puzzle pieces interlock to form a smooth, sturdy ball-no glue required! The puzzleball® is available in various sizes and in a wide array of styles for decorating your home or office. Experienced this 3-D Adventure!
Our Experience with the puzzleball® by Ravensburger
Though I have put a few fairly large puzzles together in my day, I was skeptical at first, and slightly intimidated by concept of a round puzzle. So...the weather God's finally blessed us with a day of rain a few day's back (a mini break from the smoldering temps in the N.E.) and while the princess was taking a nap B and I set off on a mission to complete the 240 piece Globe puzzleball® ( pictured above top).

As I opened the contents, I was instantly comforted! Ah yes, the pieces are numbered, so if all else fails you (I ;) can put the puzzle together in number sequence! With my confidence freshly boosted, we had the first half of the puzzle assembled within an hour, and went back to it later that night to finish the rest. It's unlike any puzzle I've ever seen, a perfect round version of the world in which we dwell :). Though I have come across a few 3-D puzzles in the past, they were not constructed with the same precision as Ravensburger Puzzle Ball's. The pieces tightly lock in place, creating a perfectly smooth surface. Included, you'll also find a base for the puzzleball® to rest on. Our puzzleball® is the show piece on B's desk now (he's very proud), he has been mastering his geography over the past few days! Next up.....we plan to tackle the New York City puzzleball® ( pictured above), with all of our favorite destinations around the city pictured, I am sure this will be a favorite in our house!  Seriously neat stuff~fun for the entire family!
