Pirate Adventure Wooden Puzzle, By Melissa & Doug - REVIEW

Nature/ Type:          Wooden puzzle with an adventurous pirate theme  

Rating:                     ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ 

Recommended age:  3 year-old ++ 

Who would love this: Puzzle-loving kids, especially fans of pirates and sea dragons! 

Treasure hunting, peg leg and eye patch, true dangers and non-stop thrills. A pirate adventure never goes out of style and will continue to fascinate generations to come! We found this Melissa & Doug in our local toy library. The kids instantly fall in love with this precious little gem. Today I’m going to share about this beautiful piece of art. 

Why I love ❤️ this toy: 

(1) Exciting Pirates Theme - We love the adventurous and colourful pirates scene with hints of humour and child-like cuteness. This is a 48 pieces puzzle, not overly difficult but challenging enough to keep the six-year-old highly interested and engaged. We love admiring the completed artwork jam-packed with thrilling actions and bursting with vibrant of colours! Daring captain wielding his cutlass sword, fearlessly bracing the strong waves amidst the sea of octopus tentacles, grey shark and gigantic sea dragon! A Jolly Roger symbol with skull and crossbones, parrot with eye patch and nautical spy glass stationing at the crow’s nest, a black cannon, marine rope ladder, barrels with sneaky spying eye, wooden peg leg, classic vessel and golden masts. We love the fun details! 

(2) Wooden Puzzle - I love that this is a “crafted by hand” wooden puzzle, using non toxic coating and meeting US toy safety standard. The pieces are light weight and easy to fit in. 

(3) Puzzle Tray/ Base - The sturdy wooden puzzle base is a big plus. It keeps all the pieces in one place, easy to be stored away in a tray, and also looks great for display. 

If I could change a few things, I wish that the puzzle image could have been printed as a separate poster that can be placed beside for reference during the assembling process. Instead, the image is found at the reverse side of the puzzle frame, which makes it a bit more challenging for kids, without having the help of reference image when playing. Also, the paper image has started to peel off from the edges of the puzzle pieces, which is really quite a shame given how much the kids love this exciting pirate puzzle. 

Overall, this is a good product, but could be better.
