This Ravensburger Disney Pixar jigsaw puzzle had loose cut pieces which is really quite surprising for this brand, however it is bound to happen.  That said, it does make for an annoyance when assembling and the User cannot pick up 2 pieces together to move them without the pieces falling apart. I don't expect it is for all the puzzles - maybe I just got one from dull blades near the end of the line.....

But for $1.00 at the Thrift Store with ALL the pieces included it was well worth it.

The assembly process....

I did my usual sorting routine.

  1. Sorting to locate all  the outside border pieces, while....
  2. Placing the pieces into the 'general-color' piles. 
  3. Then I carried on with a second round of sorting (similar colors sorted by shades/patterns) while placing the pieces flat out on the poster boards. 

I look at jigsaw puzzles of this type to be similar to a collage. Each area has certain artistic colors so the sorting by color saved a lot time. There was not really a specific area that was outstanding to be considered the hardest part.

You gotta give Disney credit for all the color and creative creatures. I expect these movies were well liked but not by me - I did not seen one of them.

But it is really nice to be able to share these close up images. Even though the cut was loose, once the pieces were in place they looked great. They just crumbled apart when it came to dissembling though.  

Of course I would highly recommend a Ravensburger jigsaw puzzle anytime.I hope this was just a one-off and not all of the puzzles cut in this product were loose.

Disney and Ravensburger make an ideal combination for a great jigsaw puzzle experience.
