Official testerPRODUCT: Orchard Toys Big Alphabet Jigsaw Puzzle (www.orchardtoys.com)Orchard Toys Big Alphabet Jigsaw

DESCRIPTION: A 26-piece jigsaw puzzle for young children with a picture alphabet theme. Fill size poster of the puzzle included. Dimensions of the puzzle are 61cm x 42cm (24" x 16"). Suitable for children aged 3 years upwards.

GOOD POINTS: The Big Alphabet Jigsaw Puzzle from Orchard Toys makes an excellent educational but fun activity for encouraging basic letter recognition and alphabet recall skills in young children.

Aimed primarily at pre-schoolers, the puzzle consists of twenty-three jigged pieces. The pieces have a very sturdy durable design, and are generously sized to enable little hands to easily hold and slot together, perfect for promoting hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills and dexterity.

The completed puzzle is rectangular in shape, and each piece focuses on a different letter of the alphabet, complete with fun illustrated pictures of objects beginning with the letter in question.

The brilliant use of bright vibrant colours is really engaging and very visually stimulating, and the puzzle pictures will encourage lots of discussion and questions for both parent and child to ask. In addition, each puzzle piece enables your child to practise letter recognition and alphabetical ordering in a really fun way.

The puzzle comes in a very handy storage box with carry handle. The packaging is, as always, very colourful, and on the back contains some great ideas for activities and questions to promote discussion and develop your child's observational skills.

What's more, the product comes with a full size colour poster of the completed puzzle which your child can display on their wall as a permanent learning resource.

In our opinion, this is a simple but cleverly designed jigsaw puzzle which makes a fun and educational activity to help prepare children for starting school.

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

PRICE: £9.75
