2009 Award
Creature Floor Puzzles
( Chronicle $24.95 Score: )

Striking oversized animal portraits of a Chimpanzee, Asian Elephant, African Lion and two Tigers are featured on four 16 piece puzzles. Each of Andrew Zuckerman's close-up images is a memorable photograph, full of detail. All four puzzles come in one set. Since these are 2 double sided puzzles, children may need some help using problem solving strategies to keep the puzzles from getting totally mixed up. Each puzzle when assembled is 2 feet square. This is fairly challenging, despite the oversized pieces. Cutout fit in places they do not belong and turning the pieces to find the correct place it will fit, is far from simple. That's why we do not think that the age designation of 3 & up on the box is fair. We'd say 3's and 4's with a parent helping would be hard pressed to put this together. At the earliest, we'd say 5 & up.  Normally this would knock the product off the Platinum List, but it's such an amazing puzzle we want to be sure it doesn't get missed.  The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.
