Winnie the Pooh

Winnie the Pooh – Ravensburger – 24 pieces

This beautiful puzzle is SO BIG! It’s only 24 pieces, but the finished puzzle is 20 x 27 inches – the size of the average 1000 piece puzzle. I’ve never seen bigger pieces!

Another wonderful quality Ravensburger puzzle, and the fit was absolutely the best I’ve seen. There are places in the picture above where you can’t even see the shape of the pieces the fit is so good. This puzzle was very well-loved before it was donated – from the condition of the box and the little bits of wear and tear you can see on the ends of some pieces I can tell this puzzle has been assembled many, many times. Regardless, it was cared for and still in very nice shape.

I very much recommend Ravensburger puzzles for the kids in your life, they are impeccably made and stand up extremely well to multiple assemblies.

I love Winnie the Pooh and all of his friends, I have wonderful memories of listening to the stories on an 8 track tape in the family van as we traveled on the weekends. It had the real voice actors from the movies and short films, and we all loved listening to it and quoting all the dialog. Yes, I’m that old. For you young’uns, 8 track tapes were like very large cassette tapes that you couldn’t rewind. For you REALLY young’uns, cassette tapes were like CD’s that you couldn’t choose what track to listen to without rewinding and fast forwarding. Grandma’s lesson is over. 👵

Winnie the Pooh – Ronda – 46 pieces

A puzzle from Bogota, Columbia. 😮 I’m telling you, you never know what interesting things you can find at thrift stores! My mom is a black belt thrift store explorer! 🛒

This is the first foam puzzle for kids that I’ve seen, and it’s quite large at 16.5 x 27 inches (68 x 42 cm). The pieces feel soft in your hands and they can also be cleaned easily, which is nice for a puzzle made for young children. There is no age range shown on the box, but this is a nice puzzle for younger children – non toxic, easy to handle, and large pieces.

The puzzle of Pooh Bear himself is adorable, and the little additional items around him are fun as well, most of them are only 2 pieces. Excellent thrift store find, and I can’t wait to give it to my grandson, he’s going to love this one!

Winnie the Pooh was one of my favorites as a child, we had a soundtrack to Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree that mom used to play for us in the car. The voice of Sterling Holloway as Pooh, all the silly songs, the “wise” owl and poor nervous Piglet  – I loved it! Pooh’s sweet, naive face and the jars of “hunny” in this puzzle make me smile. Silly old bear. Ah, nostalgia!
