Mickey & Minnie Eiffel Tower - 3D Puzzle Review and Giveaway

I received product for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
April of this year was the first time I assembled and completed a 3D puzzle.  It was the Neuschwanstein castle from Ravensburger and I still have it sitting on top of my bedroom dresser.  Recently I assembled and pieced together another 3D puzzle from Ravensburger, the Mickey & Minnie Eiffel Tower. 
 
The 216-piece puzzle is made of precision-cut pieces that snap into place; no glue is ever needed.  The flat, hinged, and curved pieces click into place to create a 3D effect.  This particular puzzle depicts the famed Eiffel Tower decked out in Mickey & Minnie Mouse artwork. 
 
The total time spent on assembly was a little over two hours.  The instruction booklet was helpful in guiding on which pieces went where.  Unlike a regular cardboard puzzle, this one has plastic pieces that snap in place.  Each piece is numbered and has arrows to show where they need to fit amongst the other pieces.  Once all the puzzle pieces were snapped in place, the molded plastic pieces were put on for finishing touches.  Although it was somewhat tedious work, the end result was absolutely worth it.  
 
 
In my mind's eye, the Mickey & Minnie Eiffel Tower is a cross between a puzzle and a model.  It's about piecing things together and building it up.  There are no extra tools needed for assembly, and all the pieces fit right where they should.  I assembled the puzzle on our kitchen table and was able to move it to a bookshelf without it falling apart.  I had to be moderately methodical about moving it from one place to another, but it stayed in tact. 
 
The finished piece is stunning.  There is a lot of detail and depth to it.  Ravensburger's 3D Puzzle is not a toy and I'm not sure how well it would hold up to being played with, but it is a beautiful, eye-catching decorative piece.
 
Win It!

One person will win a Mickey & Minnie Eiffel Tower 3D Puzzle.
