4D Mini New York Puzzle is a smaller size version of the famous 4D Cityscape New York Time Puzzle.
You first assemble the mini map puzzle of New York which is made out of unique dense foam material. You then hop on a bus tour of the city as you insert 34 plastic building replicas into the map!
All five boroughs are represented as you construct one of America's most famous and historic cities.
This tour includes iconic structures as the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building!
The buildings fit into pre-cut holes in a traditional 2D jigsaw puzzle that form the city’s street layout.
The product includes a bus tour poster that directs you around the city as you rebuild modern New York’s famous skyline. Ages 7+. Assembled 14" L x 8” W x 1" H.
Easy, but fun, puzzle. The base is made of foam and you put that together first. There are perforated areas to punch out where the buildings go. After the base is done, you follow the map they include, to place your buildings. Really shows you the orientation of NYC! My only complaint is they include 2 types of "generic" buildings and I didn't know which building went where. I don't think it mattered and was just my perfectionism coming out. Very fun puzzle!
The finished puzzle looks great, but the pieces for the buildings should have been labeled clearly. I had no choice except to use the picture as a guide and some buildings were not so easy to recognize. So my NYC looked a bit different than the one in the box. That's OK. It's unique and it was fun to put together.
