Ratatouille: Disney Store Puzzle

 When I was little, I loved puzzles. I still remember being on the floor for hours putting together all sorts of puzzles-and I was always pretty good at them too!

When I saw this 108 piece Ratatouille puzzle from the Disney Store, I thought it would be a perfect addition to my Pixar collection. I also realized that I've never had any Pixar related puzzles. One of the main reasons this particular one caught my eye to purchase was because 1. I hadn't ever seen it before (it's a pretty rare item) and 2. because of the "wine bottle" presentation of the packaging. Of course I also thought the image of the final, put together puzzle was cute as well.

If you're wondering how the heck these pieces fit out of the "bottle", there's actually a plug on the bottom that comes out so you can easily remove the pieces. Don't worry, you don't have to wreck the bottle getting the puzzle out, ha!

This is a really great item. It's fun, colorful and is great for play or display. Also, the material is plastic, not glass, if you were wondering. Still, very good quality and very sturdy. The hope is that my kids will enjoy this someday-maybe they'll enjoy Pixar and puzzles as much as me when I was little!

This was released at the Disney Store back in 2007 with the film's release in theaters so, of course, it is long gone and is no longer available. It's a pretty hard to find item and only shows up on eBay one in a while (I've seen them sell anywhere from $15-$40), but keep checking often if you're interested in tracking this down!

A big THANK YOU to my wife Brita-she was able to get me this for Easter! I'm very excited to have it.

Thanks for dropping by today and, if you like what you see, be sure to check back daily for more items from my Pixar collection!


  1. Wow - another excellent find - I had no idea this even existed! So how do you get the puzzle pieces out though? It doesn't look like they'd fit out the top.

  2. Great point! I meant to add that in the post while I was writing it. They actually come out the bottom and I just updated the post with that info just now and included a picture. Thanks for bringing that up and glad you enjoyed this one!
