Suuuper Size Puzzle Animal Match
Our testers couldn’t wait to sprawl this 34-piece animal-themed jigsaw puzzle on the playroom floor. The jumbo-sized pieces fit together to make six puzzle-pictures that when put together form a larger whole. When the large puzzle (37.5” x 25”) is complete and puzzlers bask in their accomplishment, any of the 10 circle pieces can easily move within their habitat (just because) or to another habitat to see and talk about what belongs, what doesn’t, and why – or why not.
It didn’t take long for this puzzle to catapult to a favorite’s list. In reports from the field, parents noted that the larger pieces were helpful in seeing “the big picture” and that the size of the entire puzzle invited others (like Grandma) to play. During our testing, a delightful surprise unfolded: the circle pieces identified the blossoming personalities of puzzlers open to change and those who adamantly are not.
