My kids absolutely love puzzles. Love 'em! It's so fun to watch them figure out what piece comes next in order to see "the big picture". But they always tend to lose pieces, or the edges get frayed due to hours and hours of play. I know we have puzzles that have seen better days!
Mudpuppy has a fantastic puzzle that I knew my kids (and yours!) would love! It's a block puzzle--don't worry, I'd never seen one, either! But this is such a neat idea, you have to learn more about it! Instead of just one puzzle image, you get SIX! Each side of the nine cubes has a portion of a different puzzle picture on it. Just spin it around to find the right image! My kids loved this concept, and I loved that I only had to store one box instead of multiple boxes. Here's some more information about the block puzzles:
Parent and baby animals are the Forest Friends of Mudpuppy's sweet block puzzle. Lorena Siminovich of Petit Collage has illustrated owls, raccoons, deer, foxes, brown bears, and squirrels. Turn the blocks to put together six different views of nature at its gentlest moments!
I love that the puzzle fits neatly inside the little sliding drawer. Pieces aren't lost, and it's a great place for the kids to assemble the puzzle. Learning made fun--that's what I'm talkin' about!
