#7. It takes 6.5 days to create a cutting die for a 1,000 piece puzzle
Every tool is hand made by our engineers in our factory in Ravensburg, Germany and takes on average 160 hours to create the die for a 1,000 piece puzzle. Steel strips are bent into place by hand and hammer to create the cutting tools for every puzzle. This ensures that no two pieces are alike within the puzzle.
#8. Our puzzle stay together without glue
Quality has always been a core part of the Ravensburger brand since the 1800’s, and we set out to prove that our puzzles offer the best puzzle experience. Thanks to our precise cutting tools, our puzzles are cut with minimal gaps between pieces offering the perfect interlocking fit. This allows you to pick up a completed Ravensburger puzzle by the corners and it will stay together. Don’t believe us? Next time you finish one of our puzzles, give it a try!
