Children around the World

Larsen

£7.95 

This 'Children around the world' puzzle was made for children who have not yet developed motor precision in their hands. Each of the 15 pieces lies steadily within its own frame, allowing the child to place each piece without bumping into and moving other pieces. You will find 16 children, in different countries, engaging in different activities around the world. One child plays soccer, while the other plays rugby. One walks the dog, while the other sleds in the snow. You will also find a child eating spaghetti, children playing baseball, siblings sharing a moment, one child playing with a koala, and another child hiking. Although each child is different, the one thing they share in common is happiness. This puzzle comes complete with 15 larger pieces, outlining each figure and is aimed at younger children, encouraging both hand and eye coordination, with a subtle message of 'happiness'.

 

Made in Norway from 100% recycled board. 

Size: 35.5cm x 28.5cm

  • Older kids play and learn about many interesting themes
  • Self-checking pieces encourage the children and help them to concentrate
  • Extra thick and solid pieces
  • Made in Europe from 100% recycled board
  • Lots of thought and consideration goes into every puzzle design
  • Larsen use hundreds of specially made cutting tools to make their great range of fun and educational puzzles, many custom made for a specific puzzle

It is important for the youngest to have puzzles with pieces of different shapes, not the traditional puzzle pieces that most manufacturers offer. When we make the puzzles, we cut so deep that you can see the shapes of the pieces in the tray below. When playing with our puzzles, the children will look for pieces with the right shapes rather than looking at the picture.

Many of our puzzle pieces are shaped like animals and other figures. This makes the puzzles a bit easier for the children, and they find it fun to recognise the shapes.
