What an amazing toy my son has received from his nanny! Just around his birthday, we were all excited about the possible presents for my 5 yrs. old son Michael, who is a proud pupil of an Oxford primary school. He is growing so fast and developing his skills so dynamically that we are following him with pleasure on his home time and also before & after school time.
Michael was thrilled to play with this Elephants Jigsaw Puzzle
Michael was thrilled to play with the GEORGE LUCK puzzles, representing a different kind of wooden elephants placed in 3 levels. The company, which has produced the puzzle, is HAPE INTERNATIONAL AG GERMANY. On the 1st, top level, we can see 3 elephants: green, red and blue, 2nd, the deeper level has orange and dark green elephants, and on the 3rd, bottom level, we can see only one white elephant. All the animals have cute shape and funny positions, friendly standing, sitting or lying near each other. One blue elephant has closed eyes.
A good introduction for the bedtime routine
The blue elephant was a good introduction for the bedtime routine. I said: “See Michael, our blue elephant is sleeping already, what about us? We need to go to bed now.” He agreed with me at once and it was so much easier to put him to bed. The next day, when he came from school, the elephant puzzles were again with him and he was learning to put them tin the right order. When I asked him: “Which is your favourite elephant?” he said: “All of them!”
This toy is, for sure, the great way to spark your child’s learning and curiosity. You can describe with your child the colours, the shapes, the order of scale (bigger, smaller) and many other vocabularies and logic exercises. We need to mention that the toy has all the usual European Child Safety Standards for small toys (CE mark on the package).
I can recommend this toy to parents of young children!
CE Marking is the symbol as shown on the top of this page. The letters “CE” are the abbreviation of French phrase “Conformité Européene” which literally means “European Conformity”. The term initially used was “EC Mark” and it was officially replaced by “CE Marking” in the Directive 93/68/EEC in 1993.
