Mudpuppy Foil Puzzle — Robotics
Enhanced with shiny foil, this 100-piece puzzle with a science fiction look of robotics will no doubt appeal to both boys and girls. The pieces are small and this is a challenging but satisfying puzzle. Giving beginners more complex puzzles is an important step in teaching them to find strategies for problem solving tasks. Puzzles like this also demand kids to stretch their stickability skills in the face of frustration—a life-skill that needs to be nurtured. Encourage them to use the visual clues on the box to find the top and bottom edges of the puzzle. Makes a well-priced and appealing gift for kids who go to multiple birthday parties. Also: A Foil Puzzle with Construction Vehicles with licks of foil for extra appeal. Marked for 5 and up, we think that’s a stretch. This is probably a better choice for 6-8-year olds.
