This nine-block puzzle challenges kids to re-create six familiar animals. Here's the fun part... it's not always a 3 x 3 square shape, instead the giraffe puzzle is tall and the alligator is long. This classic wooden block set grows with your child from stacking to discovery. At first, toddlers will simply enjoy stacking the wooden blocks. Next,
help these beginners out by turning the nine blocks so that all the
backgrounds are the same. Soon they will discover that if they arrange
the colored pieces correctly, they will make an animal.
Features six jungle animals including an alligator, tiger, giraffe, lion, zebra and a monkey. Introduces logic, matching, spatial relationships, critical thinking, and an understanding of cause and effect. Also promotes dexterity, hand and eye coordination, and manipulations.
Each block measure measures 1.75 x 1.75 x 1.75 inches. Ages 24 months and up.
