9 Piece Australian Birds Heads and Tails Puzzle

Approx. 7.5 cm square 

3yrs +

This enchanting 9 piece puzzle features various Australian birds or animals and will keep children engaged as they have to match the heads and tails in all directions!

Edge-matching puzzles are quite challenging compared to standard jigsaw puzzles because there is no overall image to guide you, nor do two pieces “matching” guarantee that they should go together. Only by completing the entire puzzle does this guarantee that each “match” is correct.
