Galt New Baby Puzzles
Advantages: easy to use, colourful
My children had these puzzles by Galt when they were younger and the children that I childmind like to play with them too.
We have the farm puzzles but you can also get Transport, Pets and Jungle ones.
The box contains 6 puzzles all consisting of 2 pieces. There is a pig, goat, cow, sheep, hen and a horse. Each puzzle is brightly coloured and cheerful looking. The colours of the animals aren't very realistic ( the hen has pink feathers!) but that is what makes the puzzle so interesting to the child. As they get older you can ask them what is wrong with the puzzle and encourage their thinking skills.
The puzzles are made out of reinforced card and are simple to clean, just wipe over with a damp cloth. The size is roughly 5x6 inches for each puzzle and the pieces are quite chunky.
The age range is from 18 months and I found that the younger children love playing with them The pieces fit together easily and the kids love the fact that they can complete the puzzles on their own.
The puzzles have been useful for helping the children to develop their concentration skills and we have also used it to help the children recognise the farmyard animals from an early age.
The puzzles all pack away neatly in the box and it has a carry handle so it is easily transported.
We have had the puzzles for about 3 years now and apart from being a bit battered and a bit chewed around the edges they are still in good condition. The price for the puzzles is currently around £4 and I think that it is a good price for the use we have had out of ours.
Summary: for £4 you can't go wrong!
