Product Feature: 3-D Breakthrough Puzzles by MEGA Puzzles

MEGA Puzzles, a division of MEGA Brands, takes jigsaw puzzles to a new level by creating puzzles that pop out.  Literally.  Their new 3-D Breakthrough Puzzles are just that, 3-dimensional.  These will sure to be a hit with those looking for a twist to the traditional jigsaw puzzles.  These new puzzle sets were also featured this year in Time to Play’s Holiday 2011 Most Wanted Toys List.

The 3-D Breakthrough Puzzles come in 3 levels with the difference being the number of pieces each set contains and more complex folding techniques:

Level 1-Easy:  110-150 pieces, ages 6+

Level 2-Moderate:  150-300 pieces, ages 8+

Level 3-Advanced:  300+ pieces, ages 12+

MEGA Puzzles offers the 3-D puzzles in various themes, including Mickey Mouse, Cars 2, Disney Princesses, Sponge Bob and Marvel’s Spider-Man.  The Spider-Man 3-D Breakthrough Puzzle comes with approximately 110 puzzle pieces.  They are accompanied by 14 3-D model pieces, 25 attachment clips, 75+ joining clips, puzzle glue and applicator.  These puzzles are not intended for children under 3 years old, and considering how many little clips are used in this puzzle, I would definitely use caution with younger children.

My son, 4 years old, had a lot of fun putting Spider-Man together with his sister and father.

He needed a little assistance with the clips and piecing the 3-D model pieces together, but with a little help from his 7-year old sister and some easy-to-comprehend instructions, they were able to accomplish the mission at hand.

One feature that I love about this puzzle set is that it comes with glue and an applicator.  After the puzzle is complete, you just have to brush on a layer of glue on both sides of the puzzle.  Once the glue dries, it’s ready for display.  My son found a new home for Spidey…right above his bed.  The finished product measures about 16″ x 20″, with Spidey’s head popping out about 3.5″.  MEGA Puzzles 3-D Breakthrough Puzzles range from $14.99-24.99 and can be purchased through various online retailers.
