Every classroom has them. Most children love playing with them over and over again. Sometimes pieces get lost and then they're found again. What are they? PUZZLES! It's time to take stock of your puzzle collection and see what's missing. If you don't have any of these chunky puzzles, you'll want to add them. They feature chunky shapes that are easy to grasp and have added value as stand-alone play pieces. Matching pictures are under each piece. If you temporarily loose a puzzle piece, the other pieces can be used as play props in block play. The puzzles are great for teaching science concepts, building language skills, and expanding vocabulary. Set includes 11 puzzles: Fire Truck, Safari, Farm Animals, Pets, Vehicles, Construction, Dinosaurs, Sea Creatures, Bugs, Shapes and Tools. Puzzle size is 9" x 12". Ages 2+
