Build this beautiful 3D replica of the Neuschwanstein Castle with 98 pieces!
The Neuschwanstein Castle was commissioned by Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat and as a homage to Richard Wagner, the King's inspiring muse. Although public photography of the interior is not permitted, it is the most photographed building in Germany and is one of the country's most popular tourist destinations.
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 8 years of age.
Bought this "puzzle" for my 8 year old daughter because it looked like more interesting than anything I've seen at the store. The price of 15 dollars seemed a little low, so my expectations were not high.
I wouldn't exactly describe it as a "puzzle", I would describe it as an architectural model. It was full of lots of intricate pieces, but the instructions were very clear, and it was easy to assemble following the directions. It was easy to keep track of the pieces because they were die-cut on sheets of foam board, and you didn't punch out the pieces until you were ready to use them. The attention to detail was amazing. The finished product looks just like the original Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany. The puzzle came with photographs and a story of the original castle, so the project was educational.
When I compare this product to other constructable toys, such as Legos, this product was much less expensive and looks like a replica of the original place. This toy is not something you would keep rebuilding. You build it once, and then you have the model. It would not be something you would take apart and build again like Legos.
We enjoyed building this toy together, and will likely purchase another puzzle of a different place. I would recommend this toy to kids who like constructable toys. It is a fun activity to do as a family with parents or grandparents.
