With these simple, five or six-piece tactile puzzles, kids can not only enjoy the game of taking something apart and putting it back together again, but they'll learn the shapes of different animals. Every piece in these all-wood puzzles is marked in Braille, so blind kids and adults alike will know which is the hind leg and which is the tail. In addition, the name of the animal is Brailled on a particularly thick spot on the border of each puzzle. You see, these puzzles aren't just rectangular. Oh no, the border of each puzzle is carved into the actual shape of each animal. In this way, youngsters will learn important concepts about animals in our world as they play. Each puzzle measures about seven inches long, and is around five inches wide. The board is half an inch thick, so it's both durable and portable. Complete with raised, tactile relief on important features, these all-wood puzzles are unique, affordable, and boast impeckable attention to detail.
Please note that your new puzzle may have slight irregularities in the Braille, as the dots are hammered into the wood with metal pegs by hand.
