What our experts think
Penguins on Ice was a hugely popular game, and children really enjoyed the challenge! Putting the correct pieces together to match the puzzle helps children practice their logical thinking and problem solving skills, and gives them a feeling of achievement when they have completed it.
We like that there are so many puzzles in one set; this means children can learn how to play with the starter games, and work their way up to the harder puzzles, which is great for progression. The penguin theme also makes it more interesting for children to play.
It would be even better if...
Children had a little bit of trouble understanding the instructions at first, but once they understood them they were able to play quite easily – parents may need to give children some help at the beginning.
