It almost doesn’t seem right calling the Giant Road Jigsaw a ‘jigsaw’ as we’ve discovered it is a lot more than that! Made up of 20, beautifully designed pieces Children can create numerous different types of roads and junctions by connecting the interchangeable pieces together. It can then be used race toy cars round!
What did we like about it?
- Interchangeable Pieces– my favourite aspect of The Giant Road Jigsaw is that every piece fits to every piece-making it easier for young children and much less frustrating. Because is this, The Giant Road Jigsaw is the first Jigsaw my youngest has been able to do.
- Detailed Illustrations-we loved the detail of the pictures on each piece, featuring everything from pigeons to police officers. This feature is fantastic for developing speech, language and communication skills- as it prompts discussion and inspires intrigue.
- Reinforces Road Safety– The junctions and crossing a on the jigsaw allow parents and educators to reinforce the rules of the road and road safety through play.
- Develops Imaginative Play- Imaginative Play is important for helping children to make sense of the world we live in. The Giant Road Jigsaw transports (!) children into a pretend world of roads, where they can be the construction workers building the road and drivers navigating their toy cars around the bends and junctions.
