Ravensburger Flying Home 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle

If you follow the blog regularly you’ll know that I love Colin Thompson and his artwork.  When I recently had the opportunity to try the Ravensburger Flying Home 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle featuring one of his designs, I snapped it up quickly.

Colin Thompson’s illustrations are often a little bit wacky, but so full of detail.  There are all many of creatures and machines showcased in this Ravensburger Flying Home 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle.  It was a joy to complete and piece each little detail together.

Everywhere you look in the Ravensburger Flying Home 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle there are people and animals trying to get home.

From various types of hot air balloons, including one very brave solo flying dog.

To old pilgrims heading up a step mountain pass. This is such a lovely puzzle with so much detail to enjoy, it really is another Colin Thompson classic.

It’s a puzzle full of colour and intrigue. There’s even a couple of space ships and a walking book. Expect the unexpected with this sort of puzzle.  Where is home? It would appear to be a rather stunning, many towered castle on top of a zig zagging mountain pass.

As with all Ravensburger puzzles, the quality of the pieces and their fit is second to none.  The vibrancy of the colours in this puzzle really stand out and I can thoroughly recommend it if you’re looking for a new challenge.

It’s one of those jigsaw puzzles that even when you’ve completed it, there’s so much to take in an enjoy. But imagine my horror when I thought I’d completed the Ravensburger Flying Home 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle, only to find one piece was missing.

Now I’ve never had a Ravensburger puzzle with a missing piece, so I knew it had to be in the living room somewhere.  Clearly it didn’t want to be flying home with the rest of the puzzle pieces!  Eventually I tracked the wayward piece down, it was hiding in the sofa cushions, cheeky.
