Melissa & Doug Floor Puzzle Giant Fire Truck Review
Most puzzles aren’t suitable for a three-year-old. They will often find them frustrating because they’re too difficult to put together, or they will lose or damage the small pieces. But this giant fire truck in the Melissa and Doug floor puzzles range is different.
It’s made especially for the little ones, with big pieces that are easy to put together. It’s strong and won’t easily bend. There’s a wipe clean surface for those unavoidable accidents, and it makes a big, exciting fire engine on the floor when it’s done.
The bright colours and the idea of the fire engine are perfect for little kids who almost all adore these bright red vehicles. That will give them an incentive to put it together and play with it when it’s done. At the same time, they’re learning essential problem-solving skills and learning to use their hands more accurately.
There are 24 pieces and each of them is almost as big as the box! When complete it makes a vehicle around 4 feet long.
You can set it out on the floor or perhaps on a large table. It’s best on a flat, hard surface – on a thick carpet kids may find that the pieces come apart too easily.
The Melissa and Doug Giant Fire Truck floor puzzle has a huge number of positive reviews from buyers. It’s great to find a high quality durable puzzle for children in this young age group (from age 3). A very good price for a simple, fun and educational toy.
