2009 Award
Collectible Tin Puzzles Pirates
(Mudpuppy Press $14 Score:)

This 100-piece puzzle creates a handsome three mast pirate ship with challenging sails to un-jumble. Like all 100 piece puzzles, this is for older and more experienced puzzle builders. Marked 5 & up, we think this will require help if a 5 tries this solo. More like a 7 & up choice. The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.

There are multiple patterns that children can follow, and matching the tiles calls for visual perception. A good quiet time activity. (800) 468-6873.
