Begin Again Dinosaur A to Z Puzzle
(Begin Again $30) Platinum Award
A colorful alphabet puzzle for dinohaulics. This wooden dino comes in a wooden tray for safekeeping and fits together in alphabetical order. Build it with upper case letters on one side or do it again with lower case letters. It is not easy, but it is rewarding. When it is all put together it can be stood up, too. Marked for 5 & up. We think even 6 and 7 year olds will like this, especially if they love dinosaurs. All top-rated their Dinosaur Skeleton ($20) a clever two-sided wooden T-Rex puzzle! An eleven-piece dino fits into the puzzle box along with eight background pieces. On one side the T-rex's bones are shown; on the reverse the bones go under cover. It's tricky, but we even got the dino to stand up after it was all put together. Marked 3 & up, we think this will work better for kids who are a bit older.
