Mudpuppy Day/Night Puzzle Review & Giveaway CLOSED

CLOSED
I used to love doing puzzles as a child, and I'm eager to introduce the twins to the joy of puzzles. When you finish a puzzle, whether 10 pieces or 1000, there's a feeling of success and pride that you can't get from other toys. For a child, that can really help their self-esteem along with just being fun.

Mudpuppy has puzzles for all ages, including ones I'll be able to give to the twins once I know they won't try to eat the pieces. Mudpuppy was nice enough to send us their Day/Night Puzzle, which won the 2003 Parent's Choice Approved Award and the 2003 Creative Child Magazine - Seal of Excellence Award. It was also named one of Dr. Toy's 100 Best Children's Products in 2003.
My Take
Mudpuppy's Day/Night Opposites Puzzle is one of Mudpuppy's collection of Two-Sided Puzzles. It has 9 beautifully decorated pieces, combined with a bold border, to help children see which piece belongs on which side of the puzzle. With this puzzle, you can teach children about opposites and concepts of time, such as the length of a day and a night. This puzzles also helps to build pre-reading and fine motor skills.

I really liked how thick the pieces are, so once the pieces are put together they won't fall apart easily. When puzzle pieces come out of place, it can be very discouraging and aggravating for a child, so having them stay put is so important. The pictures on each side of the puzzle are colorful and engaging. I also love how the puzzle is two sided, so it's really like having two puzzles to put together. The puzzle pieces themselves are nice a large, so small fingers can easily manipulate them. I am all for going green, and this puzzle contains 90% recycled paper and is printed with non-toxic, soy-based inks. The outer packaging also contains 70% recycled paper. I feel really good about giving this puzzle to my kids to play with because of how it's made.

Cost: You can buy Mudpuppy's Day/Night Opposites Puzzle for $10 + $6.50 shipping ($$$$$).

Overall: We give Mudpuppy's Day/Night Opposites Puzzle a 9.5/10!
