Advantages: Easy to use and look great
Disadvantages: None really
My son was given the Orchard Jungle jigsaw puzzle on his first birthday, it is currently retailing on Amazon for £5.39 (May 2012). The puzzle is aimed at children aged 18 months. The box contains 6 mini-puzzles, each having two pieces and depicting a different jungle animal. The pieces are made of sturdy cardboard and are quite chunky for little hands. Each puzzle is 14 cm X 14 cm. The 6 mini-puzzles comprise of a Zebra, Elephant, Alligator, Monkey, Rhinoceros and a Lion. The animals are depicted in cartoon character and have lovely detail without looking too simple.
The puzzles are made from durable recycled cardboard that is easy to wipe clean with a damp cloth.
The puzzles are aimed at encouraging young children to fit the two pieces together, so this helps with hand eye coordination and dexterity. Once the puzzles have been completed the child can then be encouraged to identify the animal, say way sound it makes, what colour it is, so basically try and describe the attributes of each particular animal.
I have found that my son was very interested in playing with these puzzles, at first he had difficulty putting the pieces together, but he soon picked it up and was able pick which pieces went together even if he could not get them to fit. He is now 2 years old and has no problem, fitting the two pieces together, he likes to spread them all out and then make the sounds each animal makes and I find that he also does the action of each animal.
Overall, I would recommend these puzzles to others, as they well made and durable, look great, are easy to accomplish, giving my child a sense of achievement and also they help to develop learning and understanding of different types of animals that live in the jungle.
Summary: Colourful, easy to use puzzle
