The puzzle is attractively packaged and feels good quality, but no enthusiasm. I think this is for a couple of reasons:
-it's not got many different colours in it.
-I think that she can't "think big" enough for it. She finds puzzles of this size easier if they are of several different animals / figures - she sort of leads on from one thing to the next, breaking up the big puzzle into a series of smaller ones. Which lets face it, is how most people approach big tasks. With this, I think that having one big figure is just too much for her to get her head round.
Maybe she'll like it better in 6 month's time - fingers crossed.
The jigsaw pieces themselves are strong and durable, my daughter has been playing with this for nearly a year now and the jigsaw shows very little signs of wear and tear. The backs of the pieces are just a plain cardboard grey colour, I think it would have been nicer to make them coloured but this is only a small annoyance. The actual illustration on the jigsaw is a side view of both the Gruffalo and the Little Brown Mouse which is featured near the end of the book. The sky is blue and the characters are standing on a sandy coloured floor with large rocks and trees in the background. There are a few flies buzzing around the Gruffalo's head. Whilst the image is nice, it is not exactly colouful and many of the pieces are of either the plain blue sky or the brown fur of the Gruffalo, I feel this makes the puzzle a little boring and slightly too difficult. The pieces are of a high quality and have a bit of a shine to them. Occasionally the pieces have become a little mucky but I have found them very easy to clean by simply wiping them with a damp cloth. The pieces are large making them easy for little hands. My daughter has had no problems picking up the pieces and slotting them together.
My daughter has loved this jigsaw puzzle and it has been well played with often over the past year. When she first got it she did find it a bit difficult but it was a good challenge for her and one I enjoyed helping her with.Read more ›
I think it's the added physical aspect. Sitting on the floor crawling around to put this pieces in makes it even more fun than a regular puzzle.
I was afraid it might be too difficult because of the large area of brown the Gruffalo forms, but with a few small hints the first time she did the puzzle, it turned out there were enough identifying marks on each piece for her to put it together.
I only wish there was more of a protective layer of the puzzle. Since it's obviously always on the floor and so big my kid tends to crawl over or step on it sometimes, I'm afraid the picture might get damaged pretty soon.
the cardboard itself is pretty sturdy though. No broken pieces yet.
The box has taken a major battering but still together with a little help from stickyback plastic.
Overall superb value for money, really pleased with this and after 3 months it is still being used on a regular basis
