Disney and Puzzles

I've said it before, but nothing is better than Disney and puzzles.  When I can combine the two I'm even happier.
Today's puzzle comes from Tokyo Disney.

I picked up this one a few years ago from an undisclosed site (I can't give a way all my secret places can I?)  It's a take apart puzzle based on an orange ice lolly treat that can (could) be found in the park.  Mickey mouse has 19 pieces including the stick.  It's not overly difficult, and the puzzle comes complete with instructions.  There are  letters on the inside of each piece just  in case you really get stuck as well.  Ok, so it's a kids puzzle, but then I'm a big kid so it works for me!

Even with all this ease of solving, there is a bit of a twist to the puzzle.  You MUST enter the pieces in a certain order or it won't go together.  This makes it a bit more interesting.  Add to that the unevenness of Mickey's face and the pieces all falling apart as you try to put them in and you have a  slightly more interesting puzzle.  The little pips you can see are there to stabilize the pieces, but they really don't work until the final piece is in place.
