Farm Animals Puzzle Train: All Aboard!!! What child doesn’t love trains? The Puzzle Train is just what it sounds like: a puzzle in the designed with a train. At Christmas, we featured Puzzle Adventures for Toddlers with the Christmas Puzzle Train. That one combines everything a child loves: trains AND Santa!
Now we’re back again with two fantastic Puzzle Train sets! The Farm Puzzle Train and the Alphabet Puzzle Train! During our adventures with two of our grandsons this summer, we took them to the zoo so the Farm Puzzle Train was a perfect quiet time activity when the weather wasn’t cooperating for outdoor adventures.
Kids are Funny….
Recently, we took our grand-kids to the Zoo. They had a dinosaur exhibit with 25 foot tall dinosaurs, along with all of the other beautiful Zoo animals. What were they the most excited to see? The goats at the petting zoo! Now, my friends, I am from Oklahoma. I could have taken them to pet goats, calves, sheep, horses, pigs and all sorts of farm animals. For FREE!!!
Instead, we spent $72 to get into the zoo, $6 for tolls, $30 on food and $70 on souvenirs! One day, these boys are gonna drive me to insanity. They did have fun though, so it was all worth it. I keep telling myself that, eventually maybe it will stick. Please, anyone, remind me next year they are just as happy going to small places!
One day, they’ll be too old to be easily entertained by little things, they’ll want to do super expensive activities. Right now, they are happy with the simple pleasures in life and I love that. Just wish I’d remembered that before we went 2 hours away to pet goats!
If your little one is into farm animals, I highly recommend this adorable story book: Under the Barnyard Light!
About this Train Puzzle
Moo moo! Oink oink! All aboard the Farm Train, now a durable, oversized, 26-piece, 50-inch floor puzzle! Packaged in an adorable box with a rope handle, this sturdy puzzle is perfect for little hands. From the friendly farmer revving the tractor engine to the neighing horse in the caboose, this colorful puzzle will teach fine motor skills and animal names and sounds on its way down the tracks!
Clearly, there is lots of fun to be had with the Farm Animal Puzzle Train! We had fun making the sounds of the animals as we put the pieces together. My youngest grandson is 3 and hasn’t quite gotten the concept of how to put a puzzle together, but we still had fun. Big brother found the correct piece, then we let the little one press them into place.
It was a great bit of quality time, and maybe we learned a little along the way. I loved the challenge for big brother to find the pieces without actually trying them, it added an extra angle of learning and cognitive development! What a challenge to look at the pieces and find the right one, without picking them up! He’s almost 6 and is learning a lot. Of course, the puzzle was way too easy for him, but that extra little challenge made it enough for him to have to really think.
Familius has been a favorite for us for quite some time. Their products are always family friendly and educational! We’ve had lots of fun with their books through the years, but this is our first bit of puzzle fun! We’ll definitely be getting more in the future to play with (for the kids…. of course….) haha.
You can see all of our book reviews, including all we’ve done for Familius, on our Books & Film Page.
