Your child needs to be competent at puzzles
on 11 November 2010
My son received this set of puzzles as a gift for his second birthday, but they have failed to capture his attention. They are well made, but I think that animal pictures are confusing. The chicken one, I feel, is rather like the baked beans jigsaw puzzle but for children. The repetitive pictures makes them difficult to do. For example when we do other puzzles I suggest he finds the piece with a the bird on it, or the piece with the eyes on it etc. This is difficult to do if all the pieces have a sheep on them, or a chicken.
Maybe jigsaws are just not his thing... but my feeling is that this is not a jigsaw starter set. If you have a child who is great at them, then go for it, but if (s)he is only beginning, maybe go for something with more variety in each puzzle.
