Wildlife at the time of the Neanderthals

Larsen

£7.95 

Let's go back in time about 40,000 years ago when the neanderthals roamed around with ancient wildlife animals. You will find a long-tusked mammoth, a straight-tusked elephant, a saber-toothed cat, a wolf, a cave lion, a horse, a brown cave bear, a giant deer, a white-fronted goose, a cave hyena, an ibex, a stork, and a steppe bison. All these animals were present in the times of the Neanderthal.
This captivating puzzle is best suited for slightly younger children and comes complete with 66 bespoke pieces. Some of the pieces are carefully cut to shape like many of the animals in the illustration. Let's find out which ones you can identify!
Made in Norway from 100% recycled board. 

Size: 35.5cm x 28.5cm

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.
