Wooden Surprise Puzzle
This is an amazing toy. It is a puzzle cut from one block of wood.
When you take it apart you find a table, two big chairs, two small chairs, coffee tables a foot stool and a chopping board. Children look at it and see a set of blocks and wonder what they can make with them.
They can be arranged to be a bed and pillow, a high-chair and a desk and seat. Or you can lie the high-chair down, rearrange the bits and you have a train, or Santa’s reindeer and sleigh.
The combinations are limited only by the imagination!.If you give it to a one year old they are not interested in the puzzle at all but they still recognise the pieces and play with the blocks to make simple buildings.
From 3 to 10 years of age kids tend to make up more elaborate games. It is usually around 5 to 7 years old when they start trying to figure out how it goes back together.
