Digging dirt, moving earth or just driving down the road, construction vehicles are captivating. This extra thick wooden puzzle includes six easy-grasp, chunky vehicle pieces. Each vehicle has a full-colour, matching picture underneath and can stand upright for pretend play. Encourages hand-eye, fine motor and creative expression skills.

Extension Activities: More Ways to Play and Learn:

  • Ask the child to place all the pieces in a line, either flat on the play surface or standing up (depending on the child's abilities).
  • Ask the child to point to all the machines that are red. Then, one colour at a time, ask the child to find machines that are yellow, blue and orange.
  • Line up the machines and count them aloud with the child.
  • Identify each machine, and describe the way it moves or works. (A cement mixer spins. A water truck carries a tank and rolls on lots of wheels. A bulldozer moves on tracks and pushes dirt with its dozer blade. An excavator lifts heavy rocks and dirt in its scoop. A truck has wheels and can carry big loads. A dump truck brings dirt, rocks and debris to a different place and dumps them in a pile.)
  • With all the pieces on the puzzle board, ask the child questions to make up a simple story about the construction site. For instance, "What do you think the machines are building here?" or "Which machine will finish its work first? Where will it go after the workday?"

Measures approximately 9” long and 12” wide.

  • Ask the child to line up the pieces, and count them aloud together.

For example, collect all the pieces with swirls and place them in a stack. Then return them to the puzzle board and stack all the pieces with circles or dots.

Animal rescue rangers to the rescue! With this rugged safari truck, two cheerful people are ready to zoom across the savannah to help their animal friends. The alligator, zebra, rhinoceros, elephant, giraffe, hippopotamus and lion fit into the truck's sides through die-cut slots, so this exciting toy is perfect for imaginative play and fine motor skills . . . and much more! Lift and remove the cargo door to unload the colorful animals, then count, sort and stack the solid-wood pieces before loading the truck and securing the door in its track. One male and one female ranger fit in the cab of the truck, or come out to tend to the animals on the preserve. Play ideas are included to reinforce basic skills and inspire creative play.

Extension Activities: More Ways to Play and Learn:

  • Line up all the animals side by side and encourage the child to name each one.
  • Ask the child to point to the correct animal when you give clues about its appearance. (For older children, place the animals face-down first!)

  • Set up an "animal hospital" using blocks or an empty box. Ask the child to be one of the rescue rangers who picks up sick animals, nurses them to health in the hospital and returns them to the wild.

This popular preschool-friendly clock gets a cool update! A larger face, exposed natural wood, and pops of vibrant colour on match-able chunky pieces make for a fresh modern look . . . but the classic play value and top-quality construction remains the same. Kids love the colour-coded minute and hour hands that spin around with a simple push. (No matter where they point, it's always time for learning and fun!) Children can match the colours, sort the shapes, and solve the puzzle as they manipulate the colour blocks and turn the hands, building cognitive and motor skills and laying the groundwork for learning to tell time. Extension activities printed right on the box encourage parent-and-child play, helping children begin to master early-learning concepts as they gain familiarity with the form of a clock and concepts of time.

Clock measures approximately 10” in diameter.
