Recently we were offered the opportunity to test drive some toys of our choosing through Childsmart, and for this review we selected the Crocodile Creek 72 piece Dinosaur Puzzle.

I’d been wanting to get Raf a slightly harder puzzle for a while, as the 24 piece one he has at my parents place was way too easy for him, so this 72 piece one would be perfect. Currently aged 5.5 he can do a lot of it himself, but does need a bit of help still (the puzzle is recommended for ages 6+).

The puzzle is a good size, it fits nicely on our kids table from ikea and the pieces are nice and big so it’s easy to pack away! The colours are vibrant and the puzzle board has a good thickness to it, it’s not thin or flimsy or easily bendable (so little toddler interruptions are not too much of a hazard).

Raf has done the puzzle probably more than 10 times now and is still very happy to keep doing it, it’s a great thing to bring out when I think he’s had enough screen time for the day! It also comes in a cool shaped box which is fun =)

I would recommend this brand to a friend, for sure.
