Jingle Puzzle Review and Competition

I only scanned the press release so somehow in my head (and over active imagination!)  I had decided we were reviewing a musical jigsaw but when it arrived I realised it was not.  It is a jigsaw accompanied with a CD and a song sheet to enjoy alongside the puzzle.  Am I disappointed, not really as the animal songs CD was much loved by youngest, but pieces with sounds would have been even more enjoyable!


Eldest (aged 5) happily did the Old MacDonald Had A Farm jigsaw, which has an age range of 3-6.  


Youngest may have been willing to help normally but he was resting on the sofa, still in a state of shock after our visit to see a puppet show today.  One of the characters, the old granny really freaked him out, whereas he quite liked the big bad wolf… (Go figure!).  The jigsaw had lots of colourful imaginary and both boys liked seeing all the farm animals.

I think you get lots for your money with this puzzle.  It has an RRP of £9.99, but you get a large strong good quality puzzle, a sing along CD, activity stickers and a little activity booklet.  


The activity booklet is great, it has the song sheet, some colouring in to do, a selection of can you spot questions so children can develop their observational skills and a silly mistakes picture (this is a good one to get a sense of your child’s perception of what is right in the world – like seeing a cow sporting a pink sock?).

Perfect for the summer holidays for your child to sing and dance, do some activities and stick the stickers on the walls when mummy is not looking…  Nursery rhymes are also great for building language skills, with the repetition in the songs.  So this is lots of fun and also a great educational set.  I always consider my boys sporting or crafting needs, but I never thought of their musical ability, I am going to put more emphasis on this, thanks musicroom for helping us on that journey!

Available to buy from musicroom (with plenty more there to encourage an interest in music!)

If you would like to win one of these puzzles then please fill in the rafflecopter below by the 19th of August.

  2. This lovely set looks well worth its RRP! It is something that I could give to my eldest (10) to help Melody (3 next month) with whilst I got on with the tea!

  6. That's cool, Rosie is quite musical so it's good to see music notes on there. She's chewed one of her puzzles though :-/
    She likes strumming her daddy's guitar and I have ordered her a ukulele which I am putting away for Christmas. We have an old keyboard she likes thumping away on too. She's just turned 17 months old and I believe learning to play music at a young age brings on and improves literacy and numeracy skills.
    If I win, rafflecopter doesn't notify me of a win so please can you contact me via FB or directly by email please xxx
    thank you xxx

    a nice comment hmmmm okay how about a lovely slice of chocolate fudge cake, warm of course, with chocolate fudge sauce and a layer of toffee filling too, with your choice of whipped cream, clotted cream or ice cream, or all three.  Oh and not forgetting complete peace and quiet while you eat it slowly so that you can savour every mouthful.  Nice enough??  ;-)

  87. I love jigsaws. They are such an under rated toy. People tend to think that children need toys that flash, speak, move, etc when actually the benefits from being able to build a picture and manipulate pieces into the right spaces are brilliant. I love to see Piper's face when she completes a puzzle for the first time (then immediately wants to break it up and do it again!)
