Wooden Geographic Puzzle – Set of 4
This quality wooden set of 4 puzzles is beautifully handcrafted in Germany by GRIMM’S Spiel und Holz. GRIMM’S puzzles and building sets vary in complexity and are designed for experts and afficionados aged 1 – 101. One puzzle can create many different forms and colour combinations with ease. These puzzles are often used in therapeutic work for both children and adults, promoting creativity and awakening the artistic capabilities within us, whilst helping to create a balance for concentrated thought and repetative work.
The Geographic Puzzle Set is a brilliantly coloured set of building cubes in four different colour schemes. Each of the four wooden frames measures 22.5 x 22.5 x 4 cm and contains 25 cubes x 4 = 100 cubes. All cubes have a print on one side. This very versatile puzzle can be as challenging or as easy as you want to make it. Either way, an enjoyable and failure free activity that will promote self esteem and create a sense of achievement. This is a delightful puzzle for young and old to enjoy together making this the perfect intergenerational activity. GRIMM’S does not use lacquer in order to preserve the natural feel of the wood. Unlacquered blocks are easier to build with as they are less likely to slip, making them ideal for people who may have difficulty with dexterity.
