The Earth And This Jigsaw Aren't Flat
on 17 March 2014
Ravensburger have a long, established history selling jigsaws, so it was a big disappointment when I finished putting this one together.
The pieces didn't fit together very tightly, so I had to constantly move it around to get the pieces to fit together, just a millimetre here and there but it was for almost every piece from about half way.
Added to that, the grooves caused by the cutting are quite large and too much of the image disappears at the edges of the pieces, so it's not particularly beautiful as a finished jigsaw.
But the worst problem is that the pieces didn't want to lie flat. None of the pieces appear bent, but when put together there were little humps and bumps and the lifting of several pieces all over the jigsaw. It's probably related to the poor fitting as the final jigsaw, once smoothed by hand does lie flat. But, if you're spending several hours putting a jigsaw together that won't lie flat, then it's a nuisance that detracts greatly from experience.
I expected better from Ravensburger.
