Ravensburger My First Pets Puzzle is aimed at ages 8+ and contains 200 pieces. It is a really cute design containing eleven different sections each with a different type of pet featured in it. Being broken down into sections makes it easier to identify where each of the pieces go and having a 9yr and 6.5yr old I was sure they would be able to complete this between them.
With my 9yr old out, the 6yr old got started and without helping him, I encouraged him to find all of the edge pieces. I knew he could do it if he tried and before long he started piecing bits together. He loved the achievement of joining up sections that he had made and had fun identifying which animal each piece came from. It also gave us talking points about the various pets on the front of the box.
When the 9yr old got home, she couldn’t resist joining her brother and helping him find the inside pieces. In fact just a few hours later they had completed it all by themselves! I’ve always enjoyed doing puzzles and I’m pleased to be able to share this pastime with them. I think it’s great for their brain and makes them think, identify and match pieces which are great skills for adapting into other things.
Overall we loved the puzzle. The animals are all so cute on the front and having different sections gave each child a different pet to focus on so they weren’t arguing over who was putting which pieces in. The 9yr old did get to put the last piece in though!
A really lovely puzzle from Ravensburger, with their usual high quality of pieces. It was a pleasure watching my children complete this and gave them just about the right challenge to do without being too easy. My First Pets Puzzle is cute, fun and perfect for animal loving children.
