PRODUCT: Orchard Toys Animals Four in a Box ( Toys Animals Four in a Box

DESCRIPTION: A set of 4 progressive jigsaw puzzles in one box, based around animal pictures, and each measuring 21 x 15cm (8 x 6ins). The puzzles contain 4, 6, 8 and 12 pieces. Suitable for children aged 3 years upwards.

GOOD POINTS: The Animals Four in a Box from Orchard Toys is a wonderful way to introduce your child to jigsaws, and the box set contains four separate puzzles, each one based around a cute animal scene that will instantly appeal to young children, including an elephant, dolphins, meerkats and penguins.

The use of brightly coloured pictures is ideal for engaging children, and the puzzle pieces are sturdy and a great size for small hands to hold and put together. Moreover, the progressive nature of the puzzles caters well for beginners, with an increasing number of puzzle pieces in each jigsaw (four, six, eight and twelve) to gently increase challenge as your child builds their ability and confidence.

The puzzles are also ideal for teaching basic counting, with the number of animals in each picture increasing by one each time (i.e. one elephant, two dolphins, three meerkats and four penguins), with the corresponding number also printed on the top of the puzzle. In addition, each puzzle has its own different coloured edging and backing, which encourages colour matching and enables children to easily differentiate between the jigsaw pieces.

The puzzles come in a handy little storage box with carry handle, and the packaging contains some great ideas for activities and questions to stimulate your child's observation and counting skills.

In our opinion, this is a wonderful box set of jigsaws for budding young puzzlers, and its content and design is well tailored to the age group in question.

BAD POINTS: None, other than there are lots of separate pieces which may be easily lost over time.
