Ravensburger Despicable Me 3 Shaped Prisoner Minion 3D puzzle

I have to be honest, my son was rather late to the party when it came to Minions and the first two Despicable Me films.  His best friend was totally obsessed from the start, but it wasn’t until Christmas that I managed to persuade Monkey to watch the films.  Of course, he absolutely loved them and we’ve been eagerly awaiting the release of the next film later this month.  To get us in the mood for more Minions hilarity Monkey has been putting the Ravensburger Despicable Me 3 Shaped Prisoner Minion 3D puzzle to the test.

The 54 piece Ravensburger Despicable Me 3 Shaped Prisoner Minion 3D puzzle is aimed at anyone over the age of 7 years of age and was a perfect first experience of 3D puzzling for my son. The puzzle pieces are made of durable plastic and are numbered on the inside to assist with the puzzle build.

Each piece also features a directional arrow showing where the next numbered piece needs to fit. Again, making this sort of puzzle perfect for children to try making to.

The Ravensburger Despicable Me 3 Shaped Prisoner Minion 3D puzzle also comes with a mounting stand for the Prisoner Minion as well as his feet and trousers.

The feet and trouser click into each other and then the feet click into the base circle.

My son has watched me construct a couple of 3D puzzles before so he had an idea of how the concept worked and was soon cracking on with his build.  My help was certainly not required.

His manual dexterity these days is really rather good, and he’s always been a problem solver.  Watching him concentrate and figure out which way round each piece fitted, it was lovely to watch.

It wasn’t long at all before the Minion was really starting to take shape.
The great thing about the Ravensburger Despicable Me 3 Shaped Prisoner Minion 3D puzzle and the 3D range in general is that you don’t need to use glue to keep your structure in place.  The pieces fit well together and hold, no mess!
Before too long my puzzler was putting the last piece into place.

Then it was time to fit the Minion to the base, there’s a hole on the bottom of the finished Minion that slots over a pin on the trousers stand and then the masterpiece was completed.

The finished puzzle measures about 13cm in height and is now my son’s pride and joy.

There are two other Minion figures to collect in this series and I have a feeling my son will be saving his pocket money up to get them both.  For £4.99 they actually make great gifts.  I’ve included my Amazon Affiliate link below.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum with an 8 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing days out, toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.
