Continue reading as the truth will be revealed to you …
Ravensburger is a company that has been in full swing since 1891 – they are based in Ravensburg, Germany and are well known for making the world’s finest puzzles. In each one of their puzzles, they put a large amount of detail. They use an exclusively developed, extra-thick cardboard material that is combined with special linen-structured paper in order to create puzzles that are capable of producing a glare-free image. For cutting each one of the pieces, they use steel cutting tools in order to ensure that no two pieces are alike and they will interlock perfectly, without hesitation.
What is this?
It’s the world’s biggest puzzle …we’re not joking. If you don’t believe us, look in the Guinness World Records – looking in it will confirm that this Ravensburger puzzle is the largest commercially-available puzzle available in the world. Not only is it the biggest in the number of pieces, but it is also the biggest puzzle in sheer size.
10-Hand Drawn Scenes
Long story short, this puzzle really is 40,320 pieces – that’s why it’s in the Guinness World Records. The puzzle features a total of 10 scenes from Disney films that have been hand-drawn. The iconic Disney films include: Fantasia, Snow White, Cinderella, Bambi, Dumbo, The Jungle Book, Peter Pan, Beauty and the Beast, the Little Mermaid and the Lion King.
Each one of the scenes have been framed by an interesting film strip. The film strip indicates the year the film was released.
While the puzzle is just like any puzzle – simply sort through the pieces and put it together, it does come with an interesting instruction manual. In the instruction manual, you’ll discover helpful hints that will help you assemble the puzzle –there’s also a reference guide that you may be interested in looking at.
An Added Bonus
How many of you like Mickey Mouse? Personally, he’s one of our favorites. The company added a special bonus in this puzzle. You see, in each of the 10 scenes, you will want to look closely because they hid a Mickey Mouse symbol in there. The only way for you to find that Mickey Mouse symbol would be to assemble the puzzle (we’re not giving you any hints here).
With the Ravensburger 40,320-Piece Disney Puzzle: Memorable Disney Moments, what you have here is one giant puzzle …a giant puzzle that, for puzzle fans, is a whole lot of fun. If you are a puzzle fanatic, then this is definitely something you won’t want to walk away from.
