Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A fun and educational toy, the My Body jigsaw puzzle is an excellent introduction to anatomy for small children.
There are two puzzles; one concentrates on the external anatomy, the other on the organs, muscles and skeleton. They are both presented in a bright, clear and colourful way, with good quality illustrations. Each has a cartoon illustration of a child, standing in a beach setting, such that the body is presented as in life, in a setting with which they may be familiar.
The bodies can be finished separately with the rest of the puzzle being completed around them. There are separate colour-coded labels for the body parts, which need to be placed correctly to finish the puzzles. The information is basic but pitched at just about the right level for small children. Neither puzzle is too hard for a four-year-old but should still provide a challenge for older children. Each has a few illustrated factoids scattered about, which add to the general interest.
Our nearly-four-year-old loved them and they helped feed his current curiosity about the human body. He finished each with a little parental help on the first go, but now whizzes through them. We think these are excellent and particularly useful in helping our son understand the body. That they are fun to play with will hopefully ensure that continued use will reinforce what he has learned from them.
