What It Is
Celebrating the 100-year anniversary of its maiden (and only) voyage, the limited-edition R.M.S. Titanic 3-D puzzle from Cobi is an extremely detailed scaling of the legendary British transatlantic liner. While the Titanic did sink in 1912 (and go on to submerge box office records in James Cameron's 1997 blockbuster), ship collectors, historians, and puzzle enthusiasts alike can take home a miniature replica that they can build themselves. When finished crafting this underwater treasure, the base of the over 450-piece Titanic model contains wheels in which you can roll the completed vessel across the imaginary seas of your living room floor. You can also choose to re-enact the movie and/or the infamous sinking as the iceberg responsible is included with this commemorative set (hopefully for historical purposes).
Is It Fun?
An amazing addition to any historical collection, this commemorative model is something puzzle and ship aficionados will cherish. This 3-D puzzle also promotes history and bonding as parents can help teach their children about this important relic while having a great time helping them build it. Attached wheels at the Titanic's base also allow you and your children to roll it around and guide it on many safe voyages (just watch out for the iceberg, which is included).
Who It’s For
This incredible 3-D puzzle is a stupendous gift for anyone who's into collecting ships, building puzzles, construction sets, or history buffs in general. While the Cobi R.M.S. Titanic puzzle is recommended for ages 5 and up, its $60 price tag and detail also means it's a marvelous time-piece tribute that collectors will never let go.
What To Be Aware Of
Containing over 450 elements, the R.M.S. Titanic model will take a while to put together (it took our expert builder about an hour and a half), so you're going to want to set this ship up during a rainy day, evening, or afternoon when you know you're going to be free enough to dedicate time to recreating this legendary structure. There is also no sticker guide included with your model, but it should be easy enough to tell where they go by looking at the box or just doing a quick Google search. When complete, put your boat on the carpet and either roll it on a successful voyage, re-enact the sinking, or put it on display.
