As you probably know, natural toys are very popular these days and for good reason. I found a great company called Hazelnut Kids that provides natural, earth-friendly, wooden and organic cotton toys for children and babies. They carry popular brands such as Haba and Plan Toys, as well as many others.
I was excited to receive a Hape Prizm Puzzle to review. We don't have anything like this in our house, so it was something new and unique that captured all 3 of the boys' attention as well as mine. I must confess, I sit and play with it sometimes while we're watching t.v. and create little pictures. I'm pretty much just a big kid anyway.
The puzzle comes with 56 colorful trapezoid and triangle pieces as well as a base to arrange them on. Something I really like about it is that it comes with a drawstring bag to keep everything in, instead of having to keep it somewhere in a bulky box. It also comes with two little booklets. One booklet shows you different patterns you can make and one tells you games you can play with the puzzle.
Asher and I have had a lot of fun looking at the pictures of patterns and picking one and then I point at the shapes and he tells me the shape and the color and then finds it and places it on the base. He loves it and it's fun time spent together while doing something that is making him think at the same time. We've been able to incorporate it into our homeschool time, so it's been great!
Here are a few other toys they offer that I think are super cool!
Plan Toys Chalet Wooden Dollhouse with Furniture
Plan Toys Water Blocks
Challenge and Fun Balance Board Labyrinth
