Advantages: Good quality
We were bought this puzzle for our baby when he turned 1. He enjoys playing with it as does our 4 year old who likes to get involves too.
It is by Galt and is aimed at children 18 months plus.
It comes in a cardboard box which is quite sturdy so good for storing it in afterwards. The box has a handle which comes out of the top too so you can carry it around. This box may be sturdy but it is only cardboard so it does not withstand a lot of pressure- our 18 month old has stood on this and managed to dent it a bit so it's not 100% child proof! But it is more sturdy than other boxes we have had.
In the box you get 6 jigsaws each are made up of just two pieces. These jigsaws are about 10-15cm so they are quite big which is good for small hands to be able to manipulate. They are all in the theme of transport so you get a plane, a car, a train, a helicopter, a tractor and a boat. I think that's all six! They are made from a very firm cardboard. Our baby has chewed on them a bit and it has left teeth marks but he hasn't broken any. They are quite shiny too so you can wipe them clean from sticky finger prints. The items of transport are all very bright and bold. They are not true to life in terms of colours but that doesn't matter, them being really bright is good to catch children's attention. We talk about the colours of them all too to help him to recognise different colours.
At the moment our baby tries to put pieces together. He recognises which go with which because of the colours but he isn't quite able to get them to stick together yet. He is improving as he will turn them round and recognises that the reason they don't slot together must be because he hasn't lined them up properly but he hasn't quite managed to master how to do it yet but I think it's only a matter of time. He has only just turned 18 months.
I think these are really nice and cute. They attract attention of little ones and are relatively easy to do so shouldn't confuse children too much. I don't have any problems with this at all, no negatives to say.
A good quality and well designed puzzle with young toddlers at mind.
