I’m a bit of a closet puzzler, I’ll admit it. I love a good jigsaw puzzle and recently L has been getting more and more into it which is just lovely, so I was really happy to get a lovely delivery of puzzles and games from Jumbo.
Better yet they have also got a great bundle of kids games and puzzles for one of my lucky readers to win.
Here’s what we thought of our games and puzzles.
L loves his Bob the Builder 9in1 Puzzle Bumper Pack (rrp £12.99) and it is going to last him for some time, at the moment only the puzzles with larger pieces suit him, but he will be able to grow into the larger puzzles.
In the box there are 9 puzzles, two x 12 piece two x 24 piece, three x 35 piece and two x 50 piece puzzles. All featuring characters from Bob the Builder.
I like that although all the puzzles are muddled together in the box they are easy to sort out as the back of each individual puzzle is colour coded, so all the yellow backed pieces will be for one compete puzzle, all the red for another and so on.
The Peppa Pig Party Time Race Game (rrp £9.99) has been a huge hit too, even if he doesn’t quite get taking turns and only moving your counter a certain amount of spaces yet!
He loves getting everything out of the box and setting it up. He likes to pick who gets which colour car and loves rolling the dice. It’s been really good for his counting skills and the bright, fun game board holds his attention well.
The game itself is quite straight forward, a bit like snakes and ladders but not quite, you have to move round the board and try to be the first to Suzy Sheep’s birthday party. You need to get invited, obviously. Getting lost will slow you down, but there’s plenty to help you along the way.
The board is really sturdy and everything stores nicely away in the box.
So that I wasn’t left out, I got sent ‘The Bake Off’ a WASGIJ 1000 piece puzzle (rrp £12.99). I love WASGIJ puzzles, the picture you are making isn’t the one on the box, that’s just a clue to give you an idea of the scene you are trying to piece together,
It was tough, but not too tough. It kept me going quite some time and one of my friends even joined in when she popped over. We had a fun time puzzling together.
Like most puzzles I started with the edge, but I just had no idea if I was upside down or not. Then filling in the rest you just kind of have to guess a bit. Matching colours or patterns you can see then trying to piece together the chinks to create a while.
One more than one occasion I found myself taking the wrong path and having to carefully move bits round again. Oh I do love a good puzzle!
The quality of all the things we tried out was superb and the prices are very reasonable too. Now I’ve completed my puzzle it will go to my granddad and then probably be passed round the family for completion. L’s Bob the Builder set is very impressive as I can see it lasting him quite some time as the puzzle pieces get smaller and the puzzles a bit more complex, so it’s a great way to grow into them. The Peppa game is great fun too and will certainly last him a while as he learns to play it properly.
So we will get plenty of use out of everything which s nice.
