We are excited to share a new range of enchanting puzzles and playsets just unboxed from Acorn Toys. Beautifully made and designed in Europe from the finest birch timber, they are hand-painted using only ecologically friendly non-toxic paints. Pictured above is one of a range of puzzles inspired by European folk tales. The puzzles are designed to be assembled upright to create a three dimensional interactive scene from the story with separate characters for role play. You can narrate the story while using the puzzle pieces to enact the scenes, bringing the fairy tale to life!
This visual method of storytelling not only provides a fun and interactive learning environment, but it has several unique advantages over other methods of teaching: your child will learn and remember the events contained in the story more easily when they can be associated with visual actions; and your child will be able to use the puzzle pieces to repeat and reenact the story or to create their own variations and new stories – thereby improving the development of their verbal skills, hand-eye coordination, cognitive and fine motor skills as well as their creativity and imagination
