70% complete! Woooooo hooooooo!! This was the section I was dreading the most and it’s all done! Of course I’m posting this before it’s been taken off the board and put away for safekeeping. Yikes. Think good thoughts for the transfer on Monday!
Having said that I was dreading this section the most, I must admit that it wasn’t as difficult as I had assumed it would be. To be perfectly honest, Peter Pan was more difficult for me. It had many more dark pieces with nothing else on them to show where they would go. In Fantasia almost every piece has something else on it to help with placement – foam, water spray, bubbles, etc. It wasn’t nearly as difficult as I believed, I’m just no judge of these things apparently. It only took 15 days to complete, not too shabby!
Ravensburger got the replacement section to me with perfect timing, right when I finished the The Little Mermaid! When I started sorting the Fantasia section that came in the box back in October, I found a mangled piece with part of the front (picture) missing. Just one piece, and to be honest in a 40,000 piece puzzle who really would have seen it? I would have! Ravensburger was great about sending me a replacement section, although I did have to wait until it was actually available for sale in the United States. (I bought the puzzle last September from Germany, and it wasn’t technically available for sale in the US until after the first of the year). So it arrived precisely when needed – Thanks again Ravensburger! That’s why you’re my favorite puzzle company. 🙂
So now there are only 3 sections left to complete, and the next one up is The Lion King. Doesn’t it look like fun?
In this image the blue around the edges seems almost purple, that’s not the actual color. Otherwise, it looks great! I’m looking forward to the 2 sides with filmstrip, and only 2 sides with twinklies. I’m hoping the animals aren’t too difficult to distinguish from one another and are fun to assemble as well.
I’m excited to get going on it, but it won’t be until Tuesday at the earliest. I plan on having it sorted by Monday evening though, so I will be ready as soon as Fantasia comes off the board!
