I am fascinated with puzzles that embed with surprises and engaging details. “My Finger Maze Puzzle - Underground Houses” by mierEdu incorporates a number of FUN activities into the puzzle, keeping kids entertained for a long time even after the puzzle has been assembled!
Why I love ❤️ this toy:
(1) Cute & Chunky Puzzle Pieces - It’s rare to find a puzzle targeting young toddlers, yet interesting enough to attract older kids and toys-loving adults (like this mumma here 🤣). The box set comes with 12 chunky, large puzzle pieces. The aim is to form a horizontally long puzzle, and make a continuing and indented path that moves seamlessly from one jigsaw piece to another when connected correctly. The puzzle is simple enough to be completed by young kids without much assistance, but also challenging enough to give the kids a sense of achievement! I love that the puzzle encourages independent learning, easy to be attached together by little hands and interlocked well.
(2) Adorable Illustrations - I am loving the whimsical, vibrantly colourful illustrations with hints of humour, jam-packed with adorable underground and above-ground animal characters, completes with cheeky activities that bring us a smile. We see farmer rabbits harvesting bushels of carrots, a “mice gym” with serious physical training going on, a family of chipmunks preparing meal, armadillo baby having a cuddly nap, crew of working ants collecting bright red toadstools, tortoises taking a warm bath underneath a pond of frogs, and a dinosaur-lookalike lizard enjoying reading time in his burrow!
(3) Finger-Tracing Maze - Our kids love the finger-tracing exercise along the indented route that connects the various underground houses to the above-ground. This is like an adventurous maze that fills with exciting details; it’s “sensory”, promotes fine-motor skills, and engaging!
(4) Spot and Find Game - There is also a “spot it” activity at the back of the storage box, where kids are asked to search for 20 different objects “hidden” within the puzzle (e.g. carrots, apples, toadstools, flowers, handheld mirror, ball, glasses, books). (5) I love the sturdy and quality storage box, and the chunky and young-kids friendly design of the puzzle!
