We like to sit down as a family and try to complete jigsaw puzzles but as most puzzles we have are 1000 piece ones my 8 year old daughter gets bored very easily when the pieces do not go where she wants it to.
We were asked if we would like to review a children’s personalised photo jigsaw by Wentworth Wooden Puzzles and as this was a 50 piece jigsaw I thought it would be perfect for my daughter.
I sent over a photo and my puzzle was made especially for us. It took around 2 weeks for delivery.
The puzzle arrived in a very sturdy puzzle box with the photo which I sent over on the box so we could see what the puzzle would look like when finished.
Upon opening the box there was a Wentworth Wooden Puzzles drawstring bag in which the puzzle pieces were. I liked the idea of the bag as it keeps all the pieces together and if my daughter wanted to take her puzzle with her she could just take it with its bag instead of the box.
The puzzle itself contains large pieces which are perfect for little hands, they are great quality wood pieces which I prefer as I think the cardboard type backs break too easily with children.
There was also a surprise with the puzzle pieces as when we tipped them out onto the table ready for my daughter to start her puzzle we found that some of the puzzle pieces were in the shapes of animals. We founds a bird, kangaroo, gorilla, fish, elephant, dolphin and more this made it even more fun for my daughter.
She got started straight away and I advised her that it would be best to start with the edge pieces and so she did. She wouldn’t let me help her at all, she was adamant that she was going to do her puzzle all by herself. It took her around half an hour to complete it and the look on her face when she completed it was lovely, a real sense of achievement.
She has completed the jigsaw puzzle several times since we received it and she still gets that look every time she finishes it.
I really like that Wentworth Wooden Puzzles make personalised jigsaw puzzles with the quirky little animal pieces too, it keeps children interested and I hope it encourages more children to try jigsaw puzzles and step away from their gadgets for a while.
You can purchase a children’s personalised photo jigsaw puzzle from their website and they offer two puzzles a 50 piece and a 100 piece both measuring 260mm x 250mm priced at £25.95 and £30.95.
