Product Description

Product Description

Mariners must collect an array of interesting artefacts from their travels across the world. What happens when they return home and need to store everything away? Perhaps things are gathered into a large chest, like the one shown on this puzzle. Tucked away in the chest are Skull and Crossbones biscuits, Captain Blood’s Seasick medicine, a fantastic Swiss Navy knife and a uniform bedecked with braid and badges. But it’s not just objects crammed into the wooden compartments … if you look closely there are eyes peering out at you, and little cottages which seem to be lived in. Welcome to the mystical world of The Mariner’s Chest! This image is by British artist Colin Thompson, who also illustrated the hugely popular puzzle, “The Bizarre Bookshop”. The puzzle comes in an in-box leaflet showing an additional puzzle picture for reference, together with an artist’s biography. Ravensburger adult puzzles are made using “Softclick Premium Puzzle” technology. This uses thicker and stronger board (manufactured especially for Ravensburger), and hand-crafted cutting tools resulting in strong, smooth and dust-free pieces with a superb fit. Founded in 1883, Ravensburger remains a family owned business specializing in the development and manufacture of jigsaw puzzles and games. All of our cardboard jigsaw puzzles are made in our own European factories and use the finest quality print and materials. Much of our range is developed especially for the British market by our Oxfordshire-based development team, who actively support the work of British artists, illustrators and graphic designers. Ravensburger Puzzles are easily identified by the “blue triangle” logo.

    I enjoyed doing this jigsaw, as the subject is a bit different. Fully interlocking pieces and good picture on the box. Not the easiest of puzzles to do, but interesting as so many items in the chest. Probably more for adults.

    Thoroughly enjoyed doing this puzzle as it is full of humourous quirks. Ravensburger puzzles are by far my favourites as they are so well made with solid pieces and good colours. I shall buy more of their comic series as every inch is full of interest and they are a refreshing change from scenic views which are full of skies and foliage which personally I find very boring.

    Another intriguing Colin Thompson puzzle! (What a mind he must have!). As always relatively difficult to do, satisfying when completed. The quality of the card and the cutting of the pieces excellent. All Ravensburger puzzles are of a high quality.

    My daughter is fascinated by the work of Colin Thompson, who did the design for this jigsaw. She also likes dodos and there is one hidden in the jumble of the mariner's chest. Therefore, if you have these interests, this gift could be suitable, or if you generally like detailed and bright coloured jigsaws, this is also for you!

    Excellent quality Ravensburger jigsaw ... good strong durable pieces, plenty of colour, box picture to follow and fun to complete. Little hidden 'extras' within the picture, that you don't realise are there until you're completing it! Recommended.

    Can't beat puzzles by this designer - intricate picture with loads quirky, hidden bits and excellent quality card making the pieces easy to fit together. Not over hard, but a good puzzle for ages of about 10 and upwards

    There's nothing boring about any of the Colin Thompson puzzles. The pictures are so detailed and fascinating to assemble. Excellent!
