eTwist is an online retailer that sells something for everyone, from toys to watches, home goods and appliances and much more. It isn’t a website I had come across before but after taking a look around, I noticed that there were a lot of recognisable, branded products at very competitive prices, definitely worth a look at before making a purchase.
We were given the chance to try out some Ravensburger puzzles on their website to keep the kids occupied over the holidays. Being familiar with the Ravensburger brand, I could see the prices were really good for these items, and we chose something the kids have longed for, a 3D puzzle. I found one of Big Ben with the Minions on, something I knew that would have the utmost appeal and I can safely say it didn’t disappoint!
Both children were super excited upon seeing the Ravensburger 3D Minions Big Ben, and standing at 41cm tall this is a fantastic looking puzzle that doubles up as model on a shelf. With 216 pieces this was a great puzzle for 8yr old Miss M and just the challenge she needed. The pieces for this are unlike a traditional puzzle, and are numbered on the back to help you construct the pieces in the correct order. We all helped looked for the right numbered pieces but Miss M was chief builder.
We soon saw progress with the puzzle as it rose from the ground, into the shape of Big Ben, and the minion aspect kept 5yr old Mister B amused. He made his mission to put the finishing yellow piece of the tower on the top!
This puzzle is of excellent quality with plastic pieces, many of which are hinged for the corners and angles. These work really well to create the added dimension to the puzzle and in fact a puzzle that has been exceptionally well received by not only my own family but by others that have seen it!
Our second puzzle to complete was this Crazy Cats at the Perfume Shop which I just adored. It is a 500 piece puzzle ideal for families to complete together. We love cats and 5yr old Mister B was my chief corner and edge finder!
We have all had great fun completing this puzzle right down from the children up to the grandparents putting in a few pieces when they pop round. We spent a few days doing this but loved looking for pieces for each of the cats and the children were eager to be the ones putting in the last few pieces.
Puzzles are much loved in this house and are something everyone can join in with. They are a great activity for rainy days and school holidays. Why not check out what eTwist has to offer to keep the kids occupied over the next couple of weeks, puzzles are just one of the things on their site as well as much, much more!
