Just when you thought you were going to be bored all winter, University Games releases a new Snoopy puzzle! In addition to their puzzles of Snoopy with Woodstock, Astronaut Snoopy, Flying Ace Snoopy in his plane and Snoopy on his doghouse, University Games now has a Detective Snoopy Puzzle. Read my review of the Snoopy Original 3D Crystal Puzzles…
The Detective Snoopy Original 3D Crystal Puzzle is a good starter puzzle a level one difficulty. In his deerstalker hat and his trench coat, Detective Snoopy is on the case! Using his magnifying glass to find clues, he’ll use his Sherlock Holmes knowledge to bring down the evil criminal. Your job is to build Snoopy using the transparent plastic puzzle pieces shaped like traditional puzzle pieces. Each piece is like two stacked puzzle pieces which creates the 3-D puzzle effect. To hold the figures together, connecting rods are used. The final details are added with decals on the finished puzzle.
Building a 3-D Puzzle
Building the 3-D puzzles takes a little getting used to. At first, it can be a little tricky figuring out where to start. With traditional puzzles, you start with pulling out the edge pieces. With 3-D puzzles, all the pieces are edge pieces! Instead, I found working out which pieces were the top or bottom of the piece worked best for me. Just like traditional puzzles, an element of sorting out specific bits of the big picture also helps. Overall, building the puzzles was challenging, but fun. Once you get the hang of building with the 3-D pieces, the puzzle starts to take shape quickly.
If you enjoy building the Detective Snoopy Original 3D Crystal Puzzles, there are lots more to try! Along with their Snoopy Crystal Puzzles, they have a large variety of figures to build at four difficulty levels. (affiliate links)
