Orchard Toys First Farm Friends Jigsaw Puzzles Reviews

The item looked very inviting for young children. It was bright with clear pictures of the farm animals. The puzzles is bright and appealing. I liked that each puzzled had a different colour on the back of the pieces so you could easily separate out each individual puzzle. It also came with an image sheet which matched the puzzle size. This meant my daughter was able to build the puzzle on top of the image initially to help identify where pieces should be placed. They are a perfect size for small hands. The size of the pieces and the additional printed imaged helped with putting the pieces together. Looking between the image and the pieces around her, then picking up the piece she has chosen had all aided in the development of hand eye coordination. Once she completed the puzzles she was very proud. She shouted for both myself and her dad to come and see the animals. We also discussed what other animals you might find on a farm. She enjoyed building them, them breaking them up to build again, usually starting with the opposite puzzle to the previous time. She would also take some parts out of the completed puzzle and ask us to decide which one fits in. These were used most days, we would tidy them away just before bed, but she would often take them out again in the morning. She liked talking about the different parts of the animal and the other images around them, such as the bees, butterflies and flowers. I liked they are designed to aid independent play. Once my daughter had built them a few times using the picture provided she was able to do so without support. I could make dinner while leaving her to build the puzzles knowing she wouldn’t need any help or get frustrated with it. The puzzle is good quality and has already been used many times, it still looks new. These are educational as they support hand eye coordination, independent play and leads to conversations about animals and the farm. Age suitability good as it has been great for my 2 year old. I have always enjoyed using Orchard Toys, I believe they offer great products at a good price range for all. I would buy this as it is a great product for young children. I would recommend for the same reason. It has been a great product to engage with. From first arriving the packaging was engaging and after multiple uses the product still engages my daughter well.

When this arrived thought it was colourful and instantly appealing for the preferred age group. Fantastic as it states its aimed to help develop early learning skills with simple image recognition and colour matching. We haven’t done many puzzles as he’s very focused on books and art/creative skills but with encouragement we worked together on creating the puzzles. He worked out how the pieces went together, got them into position and smacked them down, with them being larger pieces it definitely made it easier. It not only helped coordination but also problem solving, working out correct placement but turning the pieces until he thought they were in place correctly. Once completed big smiles and claps rom both of us. We did talk about the full images and make little rhymes to help him remember for example “the piggy likes apples crunch, crunch, crunch, the piggy likes apples for his lunch” which also encouraged him to want to eat apples with his lunch. Jonah has a very short attention span so we had to only do one at a time before he was busy off doing something else. These puzzles were played with a few times. He liked the animals, colours and rhymes we created. I liked how the puzzles kept him engaged on a single activity for although a short amount of time, he took the time to focus on something together. The quality is adequate for the pricing but children like Jonah especially are as I said before very busy and quite clumsy so could have benefited being wooden. This is educational as helps with image recognition, motor skills, colour matching and helped him focus. As my son is two this is a good age to introduce these activities and can be used and loved probably up until the age of four if the puzzle quality survives the hands of a toddler for that long. As mentioned above, most toddlers are very heavy handed so would have been better to be more robust but for the price it’s adequate. For the price the quality and the education usage of the product match the value of the item adequately. We have already purchased ‘heads and tails’ from this range. I would recommend as it was engaging, educational and a fun activity to be shared or independently as the child gets older. Had the puzzle been wooden it would have had full marks.

Product Tested By Georgina Froggatt-Jury – Jacob 2 Years

Georgina Awarded The First Farm Friends Jigsaw Puzzles 5/5

This looked bright bold and colourful. The pieces are perfect size for his age to be able to put together. With the big design in the jigsaw he was able to work out what was the frame and what was the inside. I was impressed he manged to put the jigsaw together independently as our normal jigsaw he normally asks for help. He was so excited to show us once he had completed. Jacob is obsessed with animals at the moment so this was a great gift to trial out. He was able to sue the picture and tell me the colour of the animal, noise they make and there features i.e. legs nose eyes etc. This did keep him entertained and he enjoyed taking it apart to start over again. When he doesn’t play with it my eldest gets it out and has ago and she’s 7. My son loved the animals. I liked the pieces are big enough for him to do this by himself. Great quality strong material as he can be a little heavy handed. This is educational as my son was able to hold a conversation just by doing the jigsaw. Perfect age suitability. Quality is fantastic. Great value and we have a few other games from this brand as we all enjoy playing with them. I brought this item for a friend’s daughter as a birthday present. I would recommend this. Great product thoroughly enjoyed by the family. Kids loved playing with this product which kept them entertained for ages. Georgina Froggatt-Jury – Jacob 2 Years
