Jigsaws are Us


There is something so satisfying about watching a child play with a jigsaw puzzle; the way they hold the pieces and look at them--you can almost hear them thinking. And this one will teach them the names of all the states whilst they are at it. Made of sustainable wood and painted with non-toxic paint, it comes with a cotton draw string bag for storage. There are maps of the world, and Europe (no Canada, mind you) or you can branch out to animals, with a letter of the alphabet on each piece, or numbers on each, or Noah's ark. Some are even three-dimensional. Other puzzles are a mosaic of beautiful colours and look like a Klee painting or a pentagon that can be put together in different patterns to challenge young precision skills. Perfect for the next rainy day--treat yourself and a favourite child. :: Alphabet Jigsaws
