Fanciful Friends 4 x 12 PC Wooden Jigsaw Puzzles in a box by Melissa & Doug
This Portable Puzzle set includes four wooden, 12- piece Jigsaw Puzzles with four different pretty characters including a Princess, Fairy, Ballerina and mermaid.
Each mini-puzzle is stored in a separate compartment of the sturdy wooden storage box, but just in case they get jumbled together, all the pieces are coded on the back for easy sorting!
The set is great for travel too. The compact box keeps everything organized, and its lid works as a portable puzzle board.
Wooden Jigsaw Puzzles in a Box promote creativity and imaginative play, and help teach hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills, visual perception, memory skills, problem solving and sorting skills.
