A Melissa & Doug toy with a LID, hurrah!!
on 10 February 2011
My 2 1/2 year old can't get enough of puzzles! This, the 'Melissa & Doug Vehicle Puzzles in a box' is the most recent addition to our collection. There are other boxes in the range including pets, dinosaurs & farm animals, but my daughter loves wheels so chose this one! Each box includes 4 x 12 piece wooden jigsaw puzzles. This set has a fire engine, a train, a school bus & a racing car. Each vehicle has a different shape on the back (diamond, square, circle, triangle) and the box has 4 compartments 1 for each puzzle. My daughter is able to complete each puzzle on her own & sort them according to their shape she just needs a little help putting the pieces in the compartment so that the lid can slide on, did I say lid? Finally a Melissa & Doug toy with a LID!!! Great for storage & taking on days out, this comes everywhere with us, to restaurants, friends houses & on holiday.
There are also some ideas on the bottom of the box for 'extension activities' that you can do e.g "Ask the child to tell a story based on the picture". Can't recommend more highly enough.
