One of the best activities that keep my kids busy for long periods are puzzles. Both kids have loved puzzles from an early age and now that Olivia is six she's already doing 200 piece puzzles, but Jackson is still loving the board puzzles. When I was offered the opportunity to review handmade board puzzles for Kid Puzzles, I was thrilled because I knew if any kids would love them, it would be mine.
But let me tell you about the company first because they are pretty unique in what they offer. Kid Puzzles are custom-made, high quality puzzles made with premium grade, maple-faced laminate. Designed to last for generations, Kid Puzzles’ non-toxic creations are a perfect gift for that special child in your life – whether your own son/daughter or grandchild, niece, nephew or family friend. Varieties include personalized wood name puzzles, child’s puzzle stools, 3D multi-layer puzzles, etc. They also are really affordable and the least expensive puzzle is around $17.
What really impressed me though? Was how I received the puzzle. It came wrapped in a great padded envelope so the puzzle wouldn't be damaged, a business card, a $4 off coupon for my next name puzzle, a little note from the company owners thanking your for your purchase, and then the best? A postcard that gives you instructions for puzzle care and (wait for it).... instructions on what to do if you lose a piece. They will replace any piece for $4.
If you are a parent of a toddler (or a very high energy little boy named Jackson), you will appreciate this. How many times have you hunted for that one last puzzle piece? And then never found it and the puzzle isn't as fun to the kid anymore? Lots. Seriously, lots. I'm currently on the hunt for pieces to three puzzles and I'm starting to think maybe someone ate the piece. But Kid Puzzles will replace your piece and that is amazing.
Here is a picture of the puzzle we received and all of the extra things I told you about. We received the Dragon Fly puzzle and it was adorable.
And they played with this puzzle for almost an hour. And it's sitting on our coffee table because they are seeing how fast they can put it together without help.
Each puzzle is specifically handmade for the order and they are made with eco friendly materials. Marvin cuts the wood pieces and Margaret hand pants them. The puzzles are also lead free, which is a HUGE thing to watch for in children's items. You know what else I love? That they have puzzle stools. These are great for other uses too, but they fit the puzzles so you can sit your little one on the couch and put the stool on their lap, they can play on the floor with it too.
Also? They have personalized puzzles, which is what they are really known for. Raise your hand if you know a kid with a wonky name that you can't find personalized stuff for? Yeah, we all know at least one of those poor kids. But these puzzles can be customized so it'll be the spelling of their name and then it makes for a cool decoration too in their room.
Are you loving these as much as I am? Do you want one for your very own? Well one lucky reader will win a $69 credit toward any of their products, which will cover any of their single layer puzzles and shipping within the U.S. If the winner would prefer a more elaborate puzzle, the credit can be applied so they just have to pay the extra amount. How do you win this?
