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