Review:
The Ravensburger Ocean Marvels puzzle is a large ocean scene jigsaw puzzle in three segments. The largest segment, with the brightest and most varied image, is made up of jumbo-sized pieces, appropriate for children as young as three. The other two segments are comparable in size, but one portion contains a more involved image and mid-sized pieces appropriate for a 6 to 10-year-old, and the other contains a difficult image and small pieces, appropriate for more advanced puzzle fans and challenging even to an adult. The puzzle can easily be sorted by piece sizes so family members of different ages can work on their own portions of the puzzle, and then the final picture can be assembled from the three segments as they are finished. Our family enjoyed being able to work together without crowding each other out or leaving the youngest ones behind. The ocean theme provided more than adequate fodder for conversation over the hours it took to assemble the puzzle.
