Puzzles Without Borders Animal & Friends is a series of magnetic puzzles with foam animal-shaped puzzle pieces that kids can fit together in a variety of ways to create colorful and expanding patterns. The two puzzles in the line are Turtle & Friends and Penguin & Friends, sold separately. Each comes with 18 pieces in three animal shapes. Because they are magnetic, kids can play with these on the fridge, white boards, or any other magnetic surface. Playing on a smooth, flat, non-magnetic surface is also an option.
To get started putting the puzzle together, take one of each animal and follow the picture instructions to put those three pieces together in a basic cell. From there, add the other pieces to create patterns or other designs.
Kids will like choosing how to arrange the puzzle pieces and what pattern they want to create, something they can't do with traditional jigsaw puzzles. Each time kids play, they can turn the animal-shaped pieces into something different. The foam puzzle pieces are easy to fit together, and kids will like figuring out how each piece goes together.
Puzzles Without Borders Animal & Friends are for ages 4-9.
These are available to purchase from Amazon.
