Recently we were sent a jingle puzzle to review and here is what we thought.....
Chester loves nursery rhymes and can often be heard singing away to Millie, he does like puzzles but his attention span is short so normally I have to finish them off for him! So when I was told about a new range of puzzles by Music for kids I was intrigued to see how long they held Chester's attention for!
We received The Wheels on the Bus Jingle puzzle. In the box was a metre long floor jigsaw puzzle, a sing a long CD with a bonus story, an activity booklet and some stickers.
When I first showed Chester the box he was very excited, he instantly recognised the Wheels on the Bus design and started singing it too me! We opened the box and put on the CD, Chester recognised nearly all of the nursery rhymes and I learnt some new ones! Whilst we were busy singing along to the CD we were also busy putting the puzzle together. The puzzle is a little different to your average pre school puzzle, it is a metre long and rectangle in shape. The puzzle pieces were of a good size and they were only 2 deep, which made it difficult enough to be challenging (with it being a metre long) but at the same time it was simple enough for your little one to work it out for themselves. Chester soon worked out that the top pieces were mostly orange and the bottom mostly blues/greens. See I told you it was easy enough for little ones!
Once we had finished the puzzle Chester wanted to pull it apart and start again, typical Chester! But I managed to change his mind with the bribe of a sticker! We got out the activity book and I started asking Chester the questions that related to the puzzle, he was happy to try and answer them and even happier when I gave him a sticker as a reward! The stickers were supposed to be to put in the activity book, but every child is different and Chester is a child that would rather be wearing the sticker!
