Jigsaws can be dull old things to put together, especially if you can't work out which bits go where. Her is a very unique twist on the old fashioned jigsaw puzzle. A puzzle where you have to rub the jigsaw and release heat in order to see what lies beneath. A smart concept and a modern twist on a classic idea.
The Galt range is quite extensive and there are several puzzles to pick from. One of the best ones has to be the Ocean Explorers puzzle. It is made up of fifty pieces which makes ideal for younger audiences, though I guess adults could tackle it too. The fifty pieces all slot together neatly and have been carved neatly and with no rough edges. The highlight of this puzzle is the design itself, which is magical through and though. Oceans are always full of life and the rich tapestry on this puzzle allows for hoards of wildlife to flourish. This means you get fish, birds and even some island action too. Each part of the puzzle has been coloured superbly and you could spend quite a while absorbing the design work.
Younger children will also find fun in the rubbing part. Small black pieces of jigsaw must be rubbed to expose the picture underneath. This adds longevity to the game and you could also make it into a 'guess what's under the piece' game, making the whole jigsaw experience even more entertaining.
For about eight pounds, this represents good value for money and is a lovely idea for a birthday gift. Measuring forty or so centimetres, it is compact enough to lie out on a small table or on a bedroom floor. Galt is a trusted brand and this product is easy to obtain online.
