Little ones double the fun as they assemble their zoo animals and then start the play. As soon as kids lined up the slots and gave the moose his striped legs and antlers, I heard, “I’m a rainbow moose, what’s your name?” as he introduced himself to the checkered elephant. Sturdy, chunky pieces with lively colorful patterns fit together adding 2-4 pieces to the bodies of 10 animals, including a lion, giraffe, whale, octopus, squirrel and a mobile bee and parrot to tag along on any of the pack. As kids animate their completed puzzles, language comes alive. This make and play toy was loaded back into it’s box with a handle as a 3 year-old took off to a new location for fun.
