Who's Who in the Jungle
We use a lot of the Orchard Toys games and jigsaws in the classroom as they tend to be hardwearing, and I have bought many of the products for my own children and more recently for my grandson.
The picture on the box is bright and quite busy and is almost certain to appeal to young children when they see the smiling faces of the jungle animals. Because the jigsaw is busy, there is plenty to talk about when looking at either the picture on the front of the box or the completed jigsaw puzzle.
There are 25 pieces to make up the puzzle and these are a good size not too big so that small finds find them difficult to manipulate and not small and fiddly. An idea of the size of each piece is that the finished puzzle is a decent 42 cm by 30cm and the individual jigsaw pieces don't vary much in size.
The recommended age group for this jigsaw is age 2-5, and for the actual putting together of the puzzle, I would say this is about right- older children may require a puzzle that is a bit more challenging. However, the puzzle can be used and made with older children depending on what I try to get out of the jigsaw. I have used this with children at the top end of Key Stage 1, as a discussion point when doing the topic Animals. We have talked about the jigsaw as we complete it and children are keen to answer questions about the picture: how many animals with whiskers? Which animal can jump? How many animals can you see? The possibilities are numerous and older children will also enjoy playing I Spy.
OTHER JIGSAWS IN THE SAME RANGE:
Who's under the sea?
Who's on the water?
Who's in the sky?
Who's on the farm?
I assume these are the same kind of size, format and price
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY...
The jigsaw costs £7.50 and is available online at www.orchardtoys.co.uk. It is also available in good toy shops although the choice in store is more limited.
A good quality jigsaw puzzle which will stretch younger children and also, with the right discussions, older children. The picture is bright and appealing and there is lots to talk about.
The cardboard box has, over time torn a bit at the corners but this is expected with cardboard. The good news is that the jigsaw pieces themselves haven't suffered any damage and even the picture hasn't faded.
Recommended jigsaw puzzle for younger children
