Who would love this: Vintage wooden puzzle collectors / this is a nice beginner puzzle for young kids
I love wooden puzzles, especially the artistically-designed types that evoke a sense of nostalgia! Doron Layeled has a wide selection of beautifully-made wooden puzzles that look absolutely impressive, and it’s hard not to fall in love with them. Today, I’m going to talk about this large-sized “Goldilocks” puzzle that my three-year-old really loves!
Why I love ❤️ this toy:
(1) Based on the Story of Goldilocks - This puzzle is based on a well-loved story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. The fairy-tale is instantly recognisable: mischievous little Goldilocks in a cute red dress, a family of bears marching home after a stroll in the woods, furniture of three different sizes, bowls of porridge on table, adorable cottage with chimney. The characters, chairs and beds are removable from the board as puzzle pieces, and I love the very thoughtful “channel” at the bottom of the board where the puzzle pieces can be displayed vertically. I love that the puzzle is based on a familiar fairy tale that all kids can easily recognise!
(2) Big Round Knobs - I love puzzle pieces with big round knobs. Young kids can train up their pincer grasp skills. The knobbed puzzles are kids-friendly and easy to be handled by small little hands. I love that the puzzle only has 9 removable pieces, making this an easy puzzle challenge perfect for beginners!
(3) Wooden Material - I love the wooden material and the very durable base of the puzzle. This puzzle is gigantic, perhaps a little inconvenient in size, heavy in weight, yet so durable and possesses such beautiful heirloom quality. This is a really fantastic puzzle, probably more suitable for daycares or schools due to the extra large size, but definitely something that can last for great many years or generations.
(4) Vintage & Heirloom Quality - The puzzle looks vintage, bright, colourful, and so aesthetically pleasing. I really love how adorable the characters are, and the thick black outline accentuates the simplicity and child-like feel of the puzzle!
