When I first saw this on Amazon, I wanted to pick this up but I waited unitl I saw this on Walmart. Glad I did because I paid less for it. It is really nice when you have 500-1000 piece puzzles.
This product is a little flimsier (plastic) than I would have liked, but it is easy to use. I LIKE this Ravensburger Puzzle Storage Tray because it packs easily when I need to use the dining table. I like how it can remain upright to store behind a hutch, or that it is smooth enough to place it flat on the floor or carpet to slide under a credenza or couch without damaging the floor or carpet. It also forces me to be a little more organized from the outset...grouping pieces by my own criteria in the different sections as I remove them from the original box. I have used the roll-up felt fabric for storing a puzzle in progress, but it is rather awkward to roll and to store. Just as a matter of interest to other puzzle lovers - I place a notecard with the date next to a finished puzzle and take a picture. Then I separate all pieces, putting them in a gallon sized ziplock baggie, and write on the inside of the puzzle lid "all pieces are here as of d/m/y". Then I give the puzzle to a local retirement home or thrift store. I do keep some seasonal/categorical puzzles that I especially like, to do again. For example, I have several with election campaign buttons that I set out every four years; postage stamps or US States puzzles for when the grandchildren visit,and winter scenes/Christmas puzzles. I hope this review has not left you "puzzled"! Happy sorting.
For the amount of money spent on this product it does not meet expectations. The trays are designed to put certain colors or pieces in each of the trays. What i have found happens is when you close up the container to either move somewhere else or store it until next time. The pieces fall to the bottom of the container and tend to mix with the other colors or pieces from the other trays It does not do what you would and should expect it to do. I would look elsewhere before considerin buying this product. It is not worth the money
Purchased for parents that couldn't do puzzles any more because of moving into nursing home and not enough space. They love it.
The positives: Solid construction, not flimsy. Snaps shut. Board size is large enough for 1000 piece puzzles. A great place to keep the puzzle away from little children's fingers or curious pets
The negagtives: Opened up, this is a VERY large puzzle board with attached storage tray. It does not seperate into two pieces. The divided compartments are great but they are permanently affixed to the two sided board. Not convenient to lean over that large board trying to find the right piece. Although the product does snap shut, there are no straps to prevent it from popping open. The board, although large enough for 1000 piece puzzle, is slippery and does not have a small lip to keep the puzzle from sliding off the board. You can not close up the puzzle in progress and sit the storage tray out of the way without the puzzle shifting and breaking apart.
Overall: I'm disppointed that it can't be taken apart (two more manageable piecesP), that the trays can't be removed and held individually, and that the board isn't slip resistant with a small lip. With that said, I'm keeping this product. I've been able to work around the problems (actually cut the board in half and yes, it still snaps shut). I close it up when I'm not working on the puzzle and just leave it lying flat on the table. The cats don't steal pieces now
This product more than meets our needs and expectations. My family loves doing jigsaw puzzles but many times end up using the dining room table. This product allows us to sort by color, work on puzzle and easily put it away and move it when we need to use the table. Very sturdy --- has been a wonderful product for us.
I love this puzzle carrier/organizer! Well, except in the carrying area... don't expect your puzzle to stay in place when you carry it using the handle. The people who designed this made the lid part a diamond shaped pattern and it doesn't keep things from moving. I solved this by putting a large piece of felt cloth over the puzzle then closing the carryer and transporting it. Overall though, I recommend this product for the puzzle enthusiast.
I bought this for my husband as a Christmas present. He has become an avid puzzler due to health problems. He loves this Ravensburger Storage Tray. Before, he was doing his puzzling on the kitchen table, and the partially completed puzzle and unused pieces were in the way when we wanted to eat. This storage tray allows him to keep everything together and neat, and it simply folds up when he is done puzzling. He thinks it's a great present.
I did think that this was a little expensive, but hate the puzzle storage that rolls up. This works best if you lay it flat (all the time) as the cardboard sheet inside will warp otherwise. It has great trays for sorting built in and a large surface for putting puzzles together. Glad I bought it!
My husband loves it, he is serious puzzle master. He thinks it is the best thing since sliced bread and the best father's day present I ever gave him.
Got this for my Mom for Mother's Day and she loved it. I got her started putting puzzles together and she kept having to move it even taking one completely apart. She was happy with this and said it was very good quality.
It holds everything in place, for the most part. I haven't tried out the roll up ones but I'm sure this one beats it by a mile.
This was a gift for my Mom, and was exactly what she requested. It arrived when it was supposed to and was perfect.
I have cats and this is great for working on and closing up to protect from wandering kitties. Absolutely love the sorting trays. Definitely would recommend this to others
Exactly what I was hoping for. Well worth the money.
I bought this for family members and friends. Everyone likes it, except for the fact it does not have detachable trays for the puzzle pieces so you have to work around the board instead of being able to pull the puzzle piece tray to you.
I have a board that my sister got me 4-5yrs ago and it has drawers that slide into the outside of the puzzle case. I can pull them out and move them from side to side looking for puzzle pieces. I can't find this one anymore and it was ordered from Spilsbury.
So family and friends really like mine, but since you can't find mine they said this is an okay replacement.
I like the puzzle storage tray overall, but thought the storage compartments could be a little deeper or have tops or seals. The loose puzzle pieces slide when you store the puzzle upright and the case is really to big to store flat!
I fully understood what I was getting when I purchased this puzzle board, so I wasn;t surprised that it is a little flimsy and too short and not stationary. The price is high for what you get but the alternatives, unless you are an avid puzzler are incomparable.
The price was perfect within budget I have a 10 year old who loves puzzles but is sometimes unable to keep up with all the puzzle pieces, this eliminated all those problems for me. Easy storage ,fast pick up love it.
Prompt service,fast shipping,great item?
