Forest Friends First Puzzle:

What we thought: Our kiddos are puzzle fanatics(they take after their Mommy:) and they thoroughly reviewed our Mudpuppy Block Puzzle. I mean over and over and over again. So I guess you could say they liked it...A LOT:) I like that even with continual use, this puzzle has held up(and D is getting to the "I'm pretty rough on toys" stage) I was seriously surprised how sturdy this puzzle is because it is made from cardboard(recycled, I might add:) The kids really haven't tired of this puzzle even after a few WEEKS of use. A said, "If I get bored of one side I just flip it to another side" and its also been a lot of fun intentionally mixing up the pieces to see what crazy critters we can come up with:) ABCD Diaries gives The Baby Animal Block Puzzle from Mudpuppy an A+ and our Cool For School Seal of Approval!

  49. I think my daughter would like the Royal Horses Tin Puzzle. My daughter really loves horses, and I LOVE that the puzzle is stored in a tin box rather than a very breakable paper one.
