Here at Coombe Mill we strive to provide holidays where learning and fun are combined. Children love to drive the tractor with farmer Nick, feed the animals and learn about their habitat, care and life cycle in the process. Our friends at Orchard Toys have the same ethos of striving to balance education and fun in their cleverly designed toys. We are lucky enough to have been sent one of their latest puzzles to review. World Map giant Jigsaw Puzzle is a beautiful bright and colourful map with plenty of visual picture fun as well as being packed with geographical facts.
More about World Map Giant Jigsaw and Poster.
Each continent is colour coded making it easy to gather jigsaw pieces together. Pictures on the continents show significant buildings, animals and national dress. Our alpaca are shown in South America while an Eskimo and igloo are up in the top of North America. Penguins huddle on the shores of Antarctica while the famous Royal Opera house of Sydney dominates Australia along with Bruce our Coombe Mill Wallaby. Even the tropics are labelled and marked as well as the seas, oceans and countries.
What we love.
We see this jigsaw as really engaging way to help kids get ahead in Geography and science at school developing a good understanding of our planet and where people foods and animals come from. My 14 year old confessed to learning a thing or two about where countries were completing the jigsaw, though it is actually intended for age 5 – 10. As with all Orchard toys jigsaws the pieces slot together easily but take some dexterity and concentration to spot the right shapes and colours and turn them the correct way round.
Support learning with a wall poster.
Keep the world map puzzle learning fresh with a giant matching wall poster. Great ways to ensure kids really know countries within continents and the seas from the oceans.
We were sent our world Map giant jigsaw and poster for the purpose of this review. All thoughts and opinions on the product are my own. Our puzzle is available to borrow from the Coombe Mill games room for our holiday makers.
