Very young children will love putting together these beautifully illustrated sea creatures. The box contains six puzzles, each with just 2 or 3 big chunky pieces, and as they are made with sturdy recycled card, the pieces are easy for lttle hands to cope with. The puzzles will help stimulate hand-eye co-ordination, and children will love the bright colours and cheerful creatures. There is a bright yellow and pink stripey fish, a sea turtle with a beautifully patterned shell, and a jolly pink starfish, each with just 2 pieces. Then there is an elegant sea horse, a cute crab, and a wobbly octopus, each with 3 pieces. The puzzles are suitable for children aged from just 18 months, and are a perfect introduction to jigsaws; initially you can give your child the pieces from one puzzle at a time to put together, but as they become more confident, they will learn to sort through the pieces to separate the different puzzles from one another. You can add to the play value of the puzzle by asking your child questions: how many legs does the octopus have? What colour are the sea horse's fins? Can you find a piece of puzzle with something yellow on it? By talking about the pictures you are helping with your child's literacy skills. Each puzzle is shaped and measures approximately 15cms x 13cms.
