Ravensburger's Lighthouse at Night is an impressive 3D puzzle and model of a generic lighthouse. The more than 15-inch tall tower is comprised of 216 sturdy plastic pieces that are assembled in two sections, separated by a plastic architectural feature, and mounted on a simulated rocky coast base that is approximately 7 x 8 inches. A lantern room section containing two LED lights is inserted in the top section. As viewed from one side, the lights fade on and off simulating the beacon to warn mariners of dangers or to assist in navigation. The beautifully illustrated, curved pieces fit tightly together. The pieces are numbered and are assembled by sequentially connecting pieces on the side indicated by an arrow. The completed model is suitable for display or could even be used as a night light. Batteries not included.
