My daughter is coming up to four years old and has been a huge fan of jigsaw puzzles for the last year or so and we have quite a collection of various different puzzles growing. One of the more complicated ones in her collection is this Everything's Rosie 10 in a box jigsaw.
The puzzle comes inside quite a large cardboard box, the amount of pieces only fills up a small segment of the box so I do think a lot of cardboard has been wasted and it could have been made smaller for easier storage. As with most puzzles, the picture of the completed puzzle can be found on the front of the box so you have some kind of reference as to what picture you are trying to make.
There are ten puzzles contained inside the box and once all ten have been completed, they can be pushed together to make a flower shape, the concept is quite a clever one but at the same time, as it goes into a flower shape, it means the puzzles aren't rectangular or square and every edge is always curved. This might prove difficult for younger children trying to complete the puzzle on their own. The ten puzzles each have a different colour or pattern around the edge so that they can be separated and it's not a huge challenge to even complete one small puzzle. My daughter tends to have ten piles and sorts the different colours and designs before she starts to put the puzzles together so she can do each puzzle after the other one and doesn't have to spend ages trying to find different pieces in a huge pile of random puzzle pieces.
Each different puzzle has a different picture to create. The puzzle that makes the middle of the flower is simply the Everything's Rosie logo, the next circle around the centre is pictures of the characters and then the petals are more elaborate screenshots of the characters. Although my daughter isn't particularly a huge Everything's Rosie fan, she still loves this puzzle and it's one of her favourites to complete at the minute. I think this is down to the complexity of it rather than the design. Most of her other puzzles are a bit boring for her as they are easy to complete but this one takes her a bit longer and she has to concentrate more so I think that is why she likes it so much.
This 10 in 1 puzzle is available to purchase from Amazon for £9 but keep an eye out as the price usually fluctuates. If I remember rightly I think I paid a little less than a fiver for this last year.
I think this is a fantastic puzzle and would definitely recommend it for children that are a little bored of the normal square, rectangle type design puzzles. The curvy lines give children a little more of a challenge and my daughter absolutely loves it.
