I don’t know how many of you have both older and younger children, but I don’t remember it being this hard as a parent when my son who is in his 20s was Low’s age. They were happy to have TV every once in awhile but filled their days with toys and imaginary fun. Now it is all electronics and tech beyond belief. I swear what 4 year old know how to hook an Xbox up? Well mine does and I am ashamed!
So whenever I find something traditional in both the classic and quality sense that grabs their attention, I hold onto it for as long as possible. That is what I found with the BeginAgain Skeleton Puzzles that they sent to us for review for the holiday season.
The BeginAgain T-Rex is king–inside and out!
The BeginAgain Dino Skeleton Tyrannosaurus 19-piece puzzle is created eco-friendly rubber wood with child-safe stains. Skilled at ages 5+. However in the event that they do stick a piece into the mouth, you can breathe easy with the safety of this piece. Not to mention wood is the best for beauty as well as long standing quality.
The pieces themselves are chunky enough for small hands to maneuver without issue. This helps develop those fine motor skills and the puzzle skill is just right for little one’s problem solving abilities.
With a dual sided pattern, Low can spend 15 minutes plus working on both side of the BeginAgain Dino Skeleton Tyrannosaurus. It is like a game to put him together inside and then out and inside again! It is also a rare find to see a puzzle in full color on both sized.
Make it a game to discover what is on the other side or even develop language skills while teaching how to pronounce Tyrannosaurus. This is even an excellent piece to lead into a bit of science education.
All in all the BeginAgain Dino Skeleton Tyrannosaurus is a big win. In fact so much so, that I now proudly own all three of the series. Oddly enough even my 8 and 9 year old enjoy playtime with this piece.
BeginAgain was founded on the principles, ideas, and inventions of Benjamin Barlowe, an early 20th century inventor from Fort Collins. Ben’s fantastic tales and astute observations of his grandchildren, Zadie and Fuller, are the inspiration behind our products. His archive overflows with tinkered toys, playful mechanisms, and incredible stories filled with nostalgia, history, and lessons on how things used to be.
Created by toymakers David Bowen and Chris Clemmer–two of the co-founders of Sprig Toys–BeginAgain is focused on thoughtful product design and imaginative storytelling for today’s kids. It is our goal to inspire children with stories of invention, adventure, and good old-fashioned fun. BeginAgain toys teach through play and nurture the development of the whole child.
