United Kingdom and Ireland Map

Larsen

£7.95 

This 80 piece puzzle marks the names and altitudes of some of the highest mountains of the UK and the Republic of Ireland. Each puzzle piece will have either the name of each sea or ocean, country or district and will be shaped like a boat, dolphin or a bird. The puzzle illustration not only includes a map of both the United Kingdom and Ireland, but also features images of a dolphin, a duck and three birds soaring high in the skies.
The puzzle is best suited for slightly older children. The quantity of puzzle pieces demonstrates the practicality and the challenge level of putting it all together.
Made in Norway from 100% recycled board. 

Size: 35.5cm x 28.5cm 

Why choose Larsen puzzles? 

Larsen have been making puzzles from their base in Norway for over 60 years and wanted to create a high quality product that was both fun to play with and educational at the same time. The small Norwegian company make all their puzzles with a frame and permanent tray, and extra solid pieces.

  • The youngest children develop their motor skills with interesting shaped puzzle-pieces they will remember
  • 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.
