If your child enjoys spending time building puzzles, then you’ll be happy to know that puzzles have many developmental benefits. Puzzles are good for developing hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills, and problem solving skills. They also help children to learn to set small goals and teach patience. Puzzles are an important educational learning tool, a great reason to encourage more puzzle building in your home!
The L.O.L. Surprise Puzzle was a big hit from the moment it arrived. The puzzle comes in a pretty pink ball, making it both fun to unwrap and to later store on your child’s shelf. Like the other products in the awesome L.O.L. Surprise range, your child will need to unwrap the puzzle ball before they can discover which mystery puzzle is hidden inside.
Once you’ve unwrapped the ball pop it open and build the puzzle to see which of your favourite L.O.L. babies were hidden inside your ball. You’ll either have Merbaby, Queen Bee, Rocker or Diva. This is a 60 piece puzzle (recommended for ages five and up) so it was perfect to challenge my daughter Amy who is four. What I loved most about the puzzle is that just like it’s not packaged in a traditional way, the puzzle itself is not traditional either so it will challenge your child’s shape and pattern recognition.
Your child will have to build the puzzle using different sized pieces that they may not have encountered before, giving them the opportunity to develop their problem solving skills even further. I loved that there were even three puzzle pieces that spelt ‘L.O.L.’
The puzzle stores neatly inside the ball, and because the ball has a flat bottom it sits easily on a shelf, ready for their next puzzle building time. It also includes surprise accessory stickers, which are always a big hit with my children!
The L.O.L. Surprise Puzzle is available from toy stores and online retailers for a recommended retail price of R229.99.
