Jingle Puzzles review

We were recently sent an 'Old MacDonald Had a Farm' Jingle Puzzle by Music Room to review.
Squeaks has loved jigsaw puzzles since her very first wooden shape boards, and this one, designed for 3-6 year olds, was well received.

The set contains a floor jigsaw puzzle (1000mm x 200mm), a sing-along sheet with activity ideas, a CD with 11 other animal rhymes, as well as a bonus story of 'The Three Little Pigs'. And for every child's amusement- the set also contained 24 peel-able stickers.

Squeaks absolutely loved the puzzle, she got stuck in straight away. I won't pretend she did it all on her own, she did have a little help from mummy, but she insisted it had to be her who put the last piece in play, with mummy as far away as possible!

The jigsaw puzzle is great, it's a good size for a three year old, and Squeaks loved the fact it was of her favourite nursery rhyme. She loved identifying all the animals and features in the picture, and was also intrigued by the music scale, and loved singing along as mummy pointed to the words.

Squeaks was very proud showing it off to her little brothers, until they started taking it apart! Fortunately, the sing along sheet came into its own, and I was able to sit down with all three and have a go at the song and the animal noises!

The CD is a great addition, you could have it playing all the time, but my three get so easily distracted dancing, it's great to play early evening as I'm trying to drain them of their last remains of energy.

Jingle Puzzles are also available for 'Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star', 'The Wheels on the Bus' and 'Five Little Speckled Frogs'.
I think these would make ideal gifts due to their versatility.

Disclosure: We were sent a Jingle Puzzle for the purposes of this review. The opinions expressed are entirely our own.
