Mudpuppy Zoo Animal Block Puzzle

Winner of eleven Oppenheim Toy Portfolio awards just this year, Mudpuppy recently sent me one of their Zoo Animal Block puzzles ($14.00). Geared for children ages 3 and up this six-sided block toy (2"cubes, 9 total) is six times the fun!

Mudpuppy Block Puzzles make kids think in multiple dimensions. Each puzzle creates six pictures which keeps your child entertained as well as continuously thinking. Each set is printed with non-toxic ink and comes in its own storage box that is easy for the preschool set to use. This puzzle makes a great set of colorful building blocks too. My daughter and her friends amuse themselves quite often with this puzzle set and use it to help them build towers as well.

I love that it is a neat and compact set which makes a perfect and affordable present but also travels well. It's lightweight and with its own storage box that you can take anywhere. The pictures comprised of pandas, tigers, monkeys, giraffes and more are bright and pleasing to a child too. Other sets include works by Eric Carle and a variety of other kid friendly themes. Mudpuppy makes quality products that you can trust. I love having them in my home.
