Who would love this: Young kids/ dinosaur lovers
Our three-year-old loves puzzle, but it’s not easy to find something that is challenging enough to make her frown a little, but not too overly difficult for a meltdown tantrum to occur 😅 . This Dinosaurs 4-in-1 Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle by Melissa & Doug fits the bill - it’s relatively easy but not too “babyish, attractive to young kids but not overly “childish” looking.
Why I love ❤️ this puzzle:
(1) Four-In-One Dinosaurs Puzzle - This is an adorable four-in-one jigsaw puzzles that instantly appeals to the kids! The puzzle base is divided into four equal quarters, each consists of four puzzle pieces (16 in total), and each quarter features one of four of our prehistoric favourites. There is a triceratops with its impressive three horns, an oversized T-Rex with a massive long tongue and disproportionately tiny arms, Mr Stegosaurus with super cool armour of purplish plates along its back, and a brachiosaurus with signature long neck and gigantic torso. We love the stunning colours, eye-catching illustrations, and the exciting theme! Each of the dinosaurs are distinctively diverse in colours and styles, making it easy for a three-year-old to distinguish and categorise the pieces. Once the pieces are grouped into 4 separate categories, completing them is easy as a breeze!
(2) Other Useful Features - There are some other thoughtful features in this puzzle. Each puzzle pieces are printed with a different shape on the reverse (triangle, square, diamond or circle), an additional way to help kids to sort the pieces and to figure out which 4 pieces belong to the same quarter. The divided wooden base is also printed with the outlines of the puzzle pieces (with each piece being unique) - another great feature for independent matching play!
(3) Clever Touch - I love the cursive cut at the right bottom corner of each of the four mini puzzles. Kids can easily remove the puzzle pieces by lifting the corner piece out from the tray.
(4) Material + Quality - We love wooden puzzles that are sturdy and well-crafted. This puzzle ticks the right boxes, and meets the usual standard and quality expected from Melissa & Doug. I love how vintage and classic this puzzle looks!
