Recommended age:   7 year-old ++ 

Who would love this: Kids that love building/ construction set and puzzles 

Wooden 3D puzzle has always been one of our favourite activity sets - it combines problem-solving, concentration, dexterity, and creativity all in one kit. Funyards Australia has a range of 3D puzzle designs that I can’t wait share with everyone in the coming few weeks! Today, allow me to introduce this - “Wooden 3D Puzzle - Eiffel Tower”. 

Why I love ❤️ this set: 

(1) 21-Piece Wooden Building Kit 

The set comes with two wooden sheets with removable laser-cut plywood pieces and a single-page assembly instructions guide. That’s it - no extra gadgets or any other fancy accessories! First, gently push out the laser cut wooden pieces (there is a total of 21 individual pieces - all can be easily popped out without any tools). Next, follow the illustrated guide to snap and connect the pieces together to build your Eiffel Tower model - starting from the four “arched legs” as base, with the structure slowly curves inwards, and finally meeting as a slim, tapered tower at the top. The entire process took us around 15 minutes in total - it was quick and delightful to build, almost stress-free, and gave the kids a sense of achievement! 

(2) Iconic Eiffel Tower Structure

I really love the details of the puzzle structure - it has symmetrical gaps / holes on the “tower” to represent the lattice architectural design which is so iconic of Eiffel Tower. Based on my rough measurement, this model stands around 30 cm in height, and 12 cm x 12 cm for its base. This is a good size - it doesn’t take up too much space, but is sufficiently large enough as a visible decorative item on desk or shelf. 

(3) Laser-Cut Plywood Sheets 

The plywood sheets are laser-cut, precisely done with joints for easy connection between the pieces. No glue is needed for this project, and there is a small piece of sand paper included for the kids to experience the process of smoothing a woodcraft. 

(4) Flat-Pack + Easy-To-Follow Instructions 

I love that the puzzle is flat-pack with minimal packaging. The instructions is clearly illustrated, all pieces are labeled on the guide and are easily identifiable. Our 7 year-old was able to build it independent without too much trouble. According to the information included, this product passed CE and ASTM test.
