Petit Collage Wild Rainforest 24-piece Floor Puzzle
(Petit Collage $18)
Good-sized pieces with colorful animals make this a challenging floor puzzle for kids with some experience. There is no frame to use for clues, but fitting the animals together will help. There are lots of less than familiar animals ( as pictured here) so this is a good parent-child project for starters. Remember, kids like to do their puzzles many times, so do take the time to build this one with your child several times and talk about the animals pictured. Also, from the same maker, there's a 24-piece puzzle called enchanted woodland with more familiar animals such as a deer, bear, foxes, rabbit and raccoon. Marked 3 and up, we think these may be a better choice for older 4s and 5s.
