      a good gift idea

      My daughter received this puzzle box set for her birthday earlier this year. She's not a great fan of doing puzzles, but we first attempted this set on a rainy day not long after her birthday.

      The box describes the set as ten puzzles in one, and once we delved into the box, we realised that they were indeed ten different puzzles all in individual plastic bags.
      I realised quickly that to avoid "Mummy" finishing off the puzzles from a mass pile of pieces, we were going to have to open one packet at a time and then transfer from the original packaging into something else to keep each puzzle separate afterwards.
      I think in this case the packaging could have been designed slightly better to incorporate reseal able bags for each puzzle.

      The pieces themselves are thick and very sturdy which is always a good sign. I can't bear to find cheap pieces that bend and don't gel together well. Thankfully this puzzle is made well all round.
      The pieces are made in wavy shapes rather than having straight edge pieces. This is quite funky to look at but makes it slightly harder for a younger child to complete.

      Each puzzle is either eight, ten, twelve, fourteen or sixteen pieces which makes it easier for children not to get bored whilst completing.
      The pictures are brightly coloured and vivid in design which I thought was nice to encourage children to piece the jigsaw together to see what the end result would be.

      Once we had made the first couple, we were surprised to see that all the small puzzles were interlocking with each other and when all ten were completed it would make a large circular picture. This encouraged my daughter to carry on with each smaller puzzle and I was surprised to see we managed to complete the whole thing in the same session.

      Each of the Zingzilla's characters makes an appearance in the puzzles, and I found that this also helped encourage my daughter as she was piecing the jigsaw together. The pieces were cut in a way that small children could tell the character needed an extra piece that was easy to spot despite the mass of colours going on.

      I think if your child is a fan of the Zingzillas then they will really enjoy this set of puzzles. We haven't managed to play with it more than a couple of times which is a shame but this could be because it's a jigsaw and not my daughter's favourite thing to do.

      After a bit of research I found that this set can be picked up for under a fiver on Amazon which makes it a bargain present in my opinion.
