Santa’s Christmas Party Jigsaw Puzzle 1000 pcs – Product Review

The Artist
For over 10 years Roy Trower has been the man who creates those beautifully illustrated scenes which determine the themes for the Christmas Limited Editions jigsaw puzzles by Ravensburger. The artwork involves 2D skills, from sketching out the design to hand painting. Artist, Trower (from Devon UK) uses a mix of water-colours, gouache and pencil colours. His designs do not include computer software manipulation or enhancement

The Theme
The theme is Santa and equally Mrs Claus (as it is for an advertising campaign running for a certain multinational high street retailer this Christmas #LoveMrsClaus) So we have a hat less Santa in a dance hold with his dear wife and they are gazing lovingly into each others eyes. So it is a romantic setting in snowy world with lantern lights hanging down from the top which creates a warm glow which illuminates all the creatures big and small, the partying elves and the foodie treats. Such a colourful and heartwarming scene

TSS SAYS:
As Ravensburger reviewing regulars it wouldn’t be quite right to be denied a first look at the Christmas puzzle on release from the company each year. This puzzle is so sweet but difficulty level is quite high, because a large percentage of the pieces are blue, black and white which makes it tricky to identify one piece from another. Therefore we found once the edges were in place it was easier to pick out and compile firstly all those pieces packed with more of the pictorials present, (those pieces enveloped in a yellow and orange glow particularly)-leaving the night sky and the snowy landscape until we had whittled things down a bit
