Do you have children who love to do puzzles? Then this review is for you!
We received this puzzle to review and our children absolutely love it! It is not just a traditional puzzle, as it adds an element of challenge with its different cuts and sizes of puzzle pieces and the colors used â€“ lots of Blue Ocean! This puzzle will keep children entertained for awhile.
Most children love animals and ours are no exception. With the GeoPuzzle, various members of my crew can be seen taking ownership of each animal in the puzzle and then announcing they will put together that particular section where their animal is located. Each animal rests on the continent in which it lives, teaching children not only the country of origin of the animals, but also the continents of the world. The GeoPuzzle is both entertaining and educational.
The puzzle pieces are made of recycled material, which is great for the environment. However, the puzzle pieces did not stand the test of time in our home (with seven children). A few of the puzzle pieces had their tabs bent before the end of the first day. That could be because a certain young boy, being too young to assist with the puzzle, was found helping anyway. The pieces seem to be pretty sturdy, so my advice is to keep younger helpers (younger than the recommended age) away from the puzzle while older children enjoy their new puzzle, unless you will be present to guide and direct little hands and fingers.
This puzzle has fast become a favorite in our home and continues to be a challenge to our children.
