Orchard Toys has been a brand that I have admired for a very long time and I couldn’t wait until LP was big enough to play with their games properly. Orchard Toys are a leading brand when it comes to educational games and puzzles and even after 40 years they still design, produce and ship all products from the UK.
We were sent the Orchard Toys Big Alphabet Jigsaw to review and I immediately loved it. The pieces are made of really thick, good quality card and come in a sturdy box for storage but what stood out for me was the inclusion of a large paper version of the jigsaw – that could be used as an educational poster too!
The jigsaw going from A to Z made it easy for LP to follow where the next pieces went and having a letter and image on each jigsaw piece helped LP to find the relevant jigsaw piece. At the moment she doesn’t know many letters but being able to pick out the images and see the letter will really help her to learn the alphabet.
The Big Alphabet Jigsaw had some easy to recognise images like balloons or lemons but had some more obscure ones too, helping to expand their vocabulary. From the jigsaw LP has learnt violin and igloo – where at the start she thought it was a guitar and an ice house!
This is a really lovely jigsaw that’s well made and easy to keep in good condition. The addition of the poster is something I really love and it would make a great gift too.
The Big Alphabet Jigsaw has an RRP of £9.75
