Galison/Mudpuppy Review & Giveaway

Puzzle blocks are a lot of fun, especially when they are Curious George puzzle blocks. The thing I like about Galison/Mudpuppy puzzle blocks is the number of puzzle you can make. 9 puzzle blocks can be changed into 6 different puzzles.

My 3 year old really enjoys the Curious George puzzle. Each puzzle has a different color border, so once he learned that, he was mastering the skill. It is a great problem solving educational game for him to practice. We work on it together and he shines with pride when he accomplishes each picture.

Puzzle blocks are recommend for children 3+ of age, but I feel better knowing it is printed with nontoxic inks. Sometimes my 1yr comes though and investigates his brother's puzzle.  Puzzle greyboard contains 90% recycled paper. Packaging contains 70% recycled paper. Printed with non-toxic, soy-based inks.

Galison/Mudpuppy not only offers Educational children's toys and games, they also carry Fine Art Stationery, journals, Christmas cards, clocks, and address books.

Coupon Code for Galison/Mudpuppy. They would like to offer my readers 15% off any order. Just enter ZZZ2 at checkout.

One of my readers will win the same puzzle I reviewed.
