To my joy, we were chosen to review this puzzle! When it arrived, I was happy to notice that it was nicely packaged and showed no signs of damage. The kids were super excited when it arrived in the mail, and I was intrigued by the concept of FlipStir Puzzles. You see, the entire puzzle is contained in a plastic tube, and our children took turns using a stick to line the pieces up correctly. They also shook the tube to better align the pieces when needed. This is ingenous in my opinion, because puzzle pieces are constantly going missing in our home! With FlipStir puzzles, this is no longer a worry. It is nice and compact, and doesn’t take up much space in our puzzle and game cabinet, which is awesome.
My six-year-old Maverick was the first to give it a try since he adores dinosaurs, and unfortunately, it was just a bit too difficult for him. He then passed it on to his older sister who is ten, and she had a great time working on it. My thirteen-year-old son even enjoyed playing with this puzzle (which I must admit surprised me a little, ha)!
For at least a week or two, this puzzle was heavily played with in our home. It seemed to always be in someone’s hand. The puzzle is very durable, and I can attest that it can withstand drops on the floor, ha! With two toddlers in our home they were sure to try to play with it as well.
As a homeschooling mom, I’m always on the lookout for items that complement learning in a fun way. This Tyrannosaurus puzzle fits the bill perfectly, and we continuously use it as a supplement once busy work is completed. My daughter Morgan has probably gotten the most use out of it, but it really is perfect for most children who are in elementary school. Once my first grader grows another year or two in his fine motor skills, I believe he would have absolutely no problem completing this puzzle!
Our puzzle is considered a “Level 1” puzzle, but there are also more difficult puzzles available for purchase. At the moment, you can purchase the puzzles for $24.95. This seems like a fair price to me for a durable product with no worries for lost pieces! The Rainbow Pencils, Statue of Liberty, and Solar System puzzles also look fabulously fun.
