When you see that blue triangular Ravensburger logo on a puzzle or game, you know that you are looking at high quality.Ravensburger games are designed to be played with over and over without falling apart. The puzzle pieces come together well, and don’t fray at the edges… and the pictures are top notch! Even the boxes are sturdy! No corners are cut to make it cheaper… but for this, you have something that will last for years.
Quick Look at the Contents
The first game that Ravensburger produced was “Weltreise” (Journey Around the World), and it was one of my favorite games ever. I played it over and over… and learned geography along the way.
Like most Ravensburger products, the game was engaging, well constructed and built to last.
The Ravensburger company was founded by Otto Robert Maier, in the town of Ravensburg in Upper Swabia, Germany. The Company started producing Ledgers and Folders during the 1880′s. Slowly, they began producing board games, which led to books . In 1962 they began producing puzzles and then toys. They even kept producing through the world wars!
Ravensburger Puzzles and Games are known for using quality materials, so the books and toys LAST. Most of their products are for older kids, or adults, but there are toys for baby too.
Ravensburger Games and Puzzles we Love
Like many German families, we are game players, so there are a lot of Ravensburger boxes in the game closet. Some have been in mom’s game-closet since I was a little girl! And over time, I’ve collected some games for my kids. It’s quite a testament to the quality of the games that they are still intact, and although the cardboard pieces may be a little soft around the edges, they are still as “good” as they were they day we first opened the box.
Games like Enchanted Forest and Labyrinth are great for the whole family to play. These aren’t games that make parents eyes glaze over, they are games that the whole family can enjoy.

But most of all, Ravensburger is known today for Puzzles!
Family Christmas Puzzle
Every year we bring out a new Christmas Puzzle to work on during the days and nights leading up to Christmas. A table is set up, and the pieces are sorted (edge verses middle)… and off we go.
There are cheers when difficult pieces are found… good-natured ribbing when someone can’t find a specific piece, and there are jeers when someone (you know who you are) keeps the lid (and picture) to themselves.
A Christmas Puzzle is a great activity to get everyone together around a table. People can drop in and out as they wish. Some people might want to pull up a chair and really work it, others might want to just drop by and find a piece or two.
My mom is the ringleader of the puzzling.. she is determined to get it done (as if we’d ever miss) and the glory of putting in the last piece ALWAYS goes to her…. Now she’s pulling my girls into the excitement (yes, puzzles are a kind of excitement… it’s a quiet excitement).
Every year we choose a new image, there is definitely a puzzle for every style… every year we have fun… and every year we finish a new Ravensburger Christmas puzzle.
