5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely brilliant. Buy it immediately for great fun and learning, 27 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Ravensburger The World on V-Stand 3D, 540 piece Puzzle (Toy)
Despite the rather mediocre and negative reviews bought this jigsaw and have found it my best buy in absolutely ages. Absolutely brilliant. The globe with the metal display is better than the tray one though the tray is included with the metal one for you to construct it on. Tray a bit shallow to permanently display so glad I bought this one. I bought it predominently to learn where everywhere is in the world and it has answered this requirement and more. Because it takes you a while to find the correct piece it imprints the location and which country. Because I dont use it as a jigsaw but as a learning device I have cheated using the fantastically useful numbers on the back and have put the "sea" areas together using the numbers. Also I have grouped all the pieces into their "100's" so dont waste endless time hunting. Just long enough to let the info sink in but not frustrating enough to forget. So you could just ignore the numbers and use it as a proper jigsaw or cheat a bit and learn countries and whereabouts. As for quality of pieces and design cant fault it. The pieces fit together well and whilst the writing a bit small (definitely need my glasses and good light) they are legible enough. A robust object and can visualise this being built and taken apart and built again many times - until I know where all my countries are anyway! Im 47 and a useful learning tool for me and I suspect for all except very small children. More a tool than a toy but still great fun nevertheless. I think everyone should have one!
