Smithsonian E-Z Build 3D Puzzle Kits
Fall 2013 Puzzles
Smithsonian E-Z Build 3D Puzzle Kits are fun, challenging models of real animals. Both of the models we assembled (penguin and clown fish) were comprised of 18 rubber pieces with protrusions and recesses that fit together in surprising ways to create durable, realistic figures that hold tightly together. Instructions are on single 4" x 8" pieces of paper with a black and white photo of the animal and a black and white exploded view illustration of the model. It was somewhat difficult to match the pieces to the illustration, so evaluators treated them as puzzles and figured out how to assemble them by looking at the package photo and intuitively matching/assembling pieces until the models were complete.
Our evaluators, having done other Smithsonian 3D Puzzles, affirm that these puzzles last for years. They look good as new even after being assembled and rebuilt hundreds of time.
