I recently purchased a jigsaw called “The Da Vinci Code, Mona Lisa Revealed”. What drew me to this one was the description of a mystery jigsaw with a free UV torch. A UV Torch?! Wow, that was different.
The Da Vinci Code, Mona Lisa Revealed is a 750-Piece Mystery Puzzle. As with a lot of puzzle jigsaw puzzles, this one did not have a picture to follow. And it turned out to be a series of pictures, all with different puzzles to solve.
As well as the UV torch, there is a detailed book containing the history of Leonardo De Vinci and the Mona Lisa. There are puzzles hidden throughout the book and within the puzzle.
We liked the jigsaw puzzle with its many areas. Spoiler alert – At one point we felt we had too many faces but the picture contains replicas of various areas.
We also loved the history contained in the book and around the puzzle.
the torch, on the other hand, appeared to be a bit of a gimmick. We found we were unable to use it to solve the puzzles. maybe there is a shelflife on UV puzzles? I don’t know if the light wasn’t strong enough or the puzzle wears off. Either way, we still had a good time doing the jigsaw, reading the book and solving the mystery of the Mona Lisa.
