I chose the Jungle Animals Finger Puppets (£4) and the Alphabet Paper Blocks (£5) as I thought these were more age appropriate for Jack (now 2 1/2 yrs old).
We were sent ours in the post as they were samples to review. When you order and payment is confirmed you will be sent a link to print yours at home. It gives you a guide on what paper to use, etc. You will definitely need a thicker paper or card that will go through your printer to make these stable enough to play with.
The first think I noticed were the bright, engaging colours – they definitely caught Jack’s eye.
Cutting out the finger puppets was a bit tricky. I cut out the monkey first and made the error of cutting the bit off that wraps around your finger !!! I got a little carried away but I just cut a strip of card and stuck the monkey to that. Sticking was easy and I used pegs to hold together while it was drying.
Cutting the blocks out was easier but sticking together a little more tricky – I left that to Jack’s Daddy 🙂
Cutting and sticking would be OK for an older child to do but I recommend a parent gives a hand as some cutting/sticking can get tricky.
Jack loved the finger puppets and went into his house in the garden to play with. Jack loves stacking blocks and these were no exception – he was a very impatient little boy as Mummy wasn’t making them quick enough!
I think these are a great little idea. Great for story telling with bright colours. They are a good price, especially as you have to factor in printing on your own colour printer.
