I am STOKED about this deal because Ravensburger is one of the top puzzle companies and this is such a good deal! Sears Canada currently has the Ravensburger The Earth 3D Puzzle on sale from $49.99 down to $24.99. Use coupon code941612495 for an extra $10 off your order, thus bringing the 3D puzzle down to $14.99. While Sears Canada has a free shipping minimum of $49, you can easily get this puzzle shipped to your nearest Sears Store or Sears Outlet - there are over 1300 across Canada.
The Earth Puzzle is just one of those things that I must buy! I enjoy earth science, I am addicted to BBC Earth, and I do not currently own any 3D puzzles so this is the perfect gift for myself. This Earth puzzle is comprised of 540 pieces and the puzzle comes with a metal rotation stand for securing and displaying. This gift does require assembly - which the receiver will be happy to do themselves.
You might be freaking out over the idea of a 3D puzzle and I am too. The puzzle pieces are rounded and designed to fit together to form a smooth, round ball with NO glue required. Essentially, it is a puzzle in the round! It is not only a great bit of fun for anyone who likes to assemble puzzles, it is also a great way to improve your knowledge of the Earth. The pieces only fit one way.
I blogged about this in a puzzle roundup about a month ago when it was on sale at Amazon Canada. Then, it was on sale from $54.99, down to $27.49. We never can anticipate price drops (wish we could!) but I am shocked to see the same puzzle for such a steep discount at Sears Canada. The puzzle on Amazon Canada sold out at their sale price so I expect the Sears Canada one to go like hot cakes.
I am delighted by this sale and am having a hard time not buying it. I just spoiled myself with a brand new adult colouring book yesterday so I am hesitant to get all decadent with a 3D puzzle too. However, I know I will never see this puzzle at this price again so I am tempted to buy it for myself. maybe I should just make it an early Christmas present to me.
