What is it

A large puzzle, consisting of twenty-four puzzle pieces and eight wooden animals, which add the benefit of 3D play.

Children can put together the puzzle and insert the eight wooden animals into the correct spaces; they can also use the animals separately in their imaginative play.

What our experts think

A bright and eye catching puzzle with the added bonus of a 3D element – we really loved the little wooden animals and felt they added another dimension to the traditional puzzle. Our testers were keen to explore the tactile and brightly coloured animals, building upon fine motor skills and dexterity. Although they weren’t all instantly recognisable to the children, they elicited a lot of discussion and were a good tool for teaching about different animals and the sounds they make! Knowledge and understanding was promoted when trying to work out which animals went in which spaces: for example, which animal eats carrots? Which is good at climbing trees?

There was a real sense of excitement, achievement and pride as the children neared completion of the puzzle. The younger children needed help with the assembly, but with adult interaction were able to find pieces – puzzles are a good way of developing children’s colour, pattern and shape recognition as well as practising their logic and problem solving skills.
