The Tiger Who Came to Tea – Floor Puzzle review

The Tiger Who Came To TeaWe love books here as you know, one of Monkey’s favourites is The Tiger Who Came to Tea by Judith Kerr.  So when we had the chance to look at a jigsaw puzzle from Paul Lamond Games this one jumped right out at us!

The Tiger Who Came To TeaThe Tiger Who Came to Tea Floor Puzzle has 24 pieces and is aimed at children over the age of 3 years.  Perfect for a nearly 4 year old Monkey.  He couldn’t wait to get started when we unwrapped the box.

The Tiger Who Came To TeaI love to encourage Monkey to spend time doing jigsaw puzzles, getting him to concentrate and develop his problem solving skills.  Puzzles are great for improving hand/eye co-ordination and offer great discussion points.  What can you see?  What is happening? Where does this go??

The Tiger Who Came To TeaThe jumbo jigsaw puzzle pieces are made of firm card, they’re not going to bend easily and get damaged by little hands.  Jumbo size floor puzzles are a great introduction to the world of jigsaw puzzles for smaller children, the pieces are so much easier to manipulate.

So Monkey set to work, he didn’t need my help, we just talked about what he could see as the picture emerged.

The Tiger Who Came To Tea puzzle picture is instantly recognisable to any fan of the Judith Kerr book.  The quality of the finish is good; as you would expect from Paul Lamond Games, a company who have been in the business for over 25 years.

The Tiger Who Came To TeaWhen completed the puzzle measures 49 x 68.5cms.

The storage box is made of sturdy cardboard (always a plus in my mind, especially when storing puzzles) and comes with a plastic carry handle.  Monkey was soon packing his new The Tiger Who Came To Tea puzzle away in its box and pretending he had a suitcase.  He was off on his travels – maybe to the Zoo, to see if the Tiger was waiting for him to bring him a cup of tea perhaps?

Monkey really enjoyed this puzzle, I liked the quality, and for around £10 we give this a big thumbs up – would make a great Christmas present for someone!

disclaimer:  we were sent this puzzle for the purpose of review, our comments however, remain our own honest opinions.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.
