What It Is
What It Is
The Highlights Puzzleball is a 24-piece puzzle based on Highlights magazine. Kids put this puzzle together a little differently than what they are probably used to. The puzzle pieces are curved plastic pieces that fit together to form a smooth surface. Kids build each half of the puzzleball on top of a dome-shaped base. Place one of the puzzle rings (a pre-assembled ring of puzzle pieces to help kids get started) onto the base and then start attaching puzzle pieces to the ring. More experienced puzzlers can choose not to use the base. Each puzzle piece is also numbered so that kids know in what order the pieces go together. Once both halves are built, snap them together to form a ball. The base becomes a stand for displaying the puzzleball. The images on the puzzleball show different animals on the beach and in the ocean.
Why It’s Fun
Ravensburger's Puzzleballs add a whole new dimension to puzzles. Kids will find this ball-shaped puzzle fascinating and, once its assembled, will enjoy turning it around and around to see all the different Highlights-inspired artwork.
Who It’s For
The Highlights Puzzleball is for kids ages 4 and up.
What to Be Aware of
Puzzles are a great way for kids to develop fine motor and problem-solving skills.
Younger kids may need a little help getting the two halves together.
