The Orchard Toys At the Stable is a very detailed and interesting puzzle and was a gift for our little boy on his birthday. It has 75 pieces and admittedly he cannot complete this one on his own yet although I am sure he will be able to do so very soon.
I encourage him by asking him questions about different areas of the puzzle, for example, where is the brown horse? What does he eat? Where are his Rosettes? and from there I get him to look for the pieces and we piece it together. He really enjoys this even though it is a large puzzle. It is so detailed and I think even children who don’t know anything about horses will enjoy this fun all inclusive puzzle.
This will definitely be a long lasting puzzle and as always the quality of Orchard Toys Puzzles is great so I know it will with stand toddler handling.
As we started our son piecing together puzzles at an early age, his interest has grown with the help of Orchard Toys, as their puzzles are so attractive and unique.
This Orchard Toys Big Dinosaur puzzle is no different, stretching his learning skills he can now complete this puzzle on his own. He pieces together the different dinosaurs first and then works to piece the whole puzzle together.
This Orchard Toys Big Dinosaur puzzle not only teaches them how to piece together more pieces but also the names of dinosaurs, he can now name most of them. Having the dinosaurs in strong, different, vibrant colours keeps their interest for a lot longer.
The Orchard Toys Police Car Puzzle has 30 pieces. Our son loves this puzzle, possibly his favourite. He can now piece it together on his own and then describes all the different police people and their vehicles.
This puzzle is different as it teaches the children that not only do the police drive in cars, they also have dogs, motorbikes, walk around on foot, horses and even helicopters.
Orchard Toys have really excelled in this puzzle as it really is teaching the little ones world understanding.
I have lost count how many times our son has pieced together this Orchard Toys Big Digger puzzle. Large, colourful and an inviting finishing picture keeps him interested long enough to complete this puzzle.
Our son talks about the workmen, large wheels, their yellow hats as well as quickly piecing it together.
Another interesting puzzle from Orchard Toys which is an interesting shape rather than rectangular.
Our son has had this puzzle since he was 2 years old, although the manufacturer recommendation is 3+. To start with we obviously helped him with piecing together this Orchard Toys Big Bus puzzle and we then spoke about who was on the bus, the driver and the description of various passengers.
After a few weeks he could piece it together himself quite a few months before he was 3. The large pieces are great for little hands, this encouraged him to start describing people and is fantastic for hand-eye co-ordination.
Our little girl has just started wanting to piece together this puzzle too, and it is great watching him trying to help her. A fantastic puzzle to start little ones interest with puzzles.
