The Very Hungry Caterpillar Deluxe Puzzle Wheel Review (Mudpuppy)

What It Is

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Deluxe Puzzle Wheel comes with seven colorful pieces featuring illustrations from the popular Eric Carle book. There are images of the caterpillar: one after he stuffed himself with all that food, the beautiful butterfly he emerged as, and some of the fruit he ate. There is one central hub that the six puzzle pieces fit into. Match the pieces by the color in the central piece. When you're done, the puzzle forms a circle that is one foot in diameter. Turn the puzzle pieces over to make a color wheel, creating two puzzles in one. The puzzle pieces are extra thick, making it easy for little hands to handle. And all the pieces store inside the round box when playtime is over.

Is It Fun?

Both sides of the puzzles introduce little ones to colors and counting. Parents can hold up the puzzle pieces to show kids one apple, two pears, three plums, etc. This also makes a great introduction to puzzles for young children. And with two sides, kids have two ways to play.

Who It’s For

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Deluxe Puzzle Wheel is for ages 2 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

The puzzle pieces are made of cardboard and printed with non-toxic, soy-based inks.
