I really like this new Dinosaur Park puzzle too–all of the dinosaurs are friendly looking. Just right for young dino-holics. Just like the Busy Bugs Puzzle, this is 2′ x 3′ and comes with 24 oversized pieces.
The actual Busy Bugs puzzle from Mudpuppy is really stunning…for some reason the artwork on the box doesn’t really convey how attractive this puzzle really is even though it’s the same image. Kids will enjoy working on this oversized (2′ by 3′) floor puzzle that illustrates how busy all the bugs are in the garden. Comes with 24 large, sturdy pieces–lots’ to talk about as you work on this one. Suggested retail $17 (3 & up–but of course 3s and 4s will need help to begin).
Mudpuppy is well known for their over-sized floor puzzles that feature storybook characters. This year’s new puzzle Brown Bear Brown Bear is based on the favorite Eric Carle picturebook. The 24 jumbo pieces make this a great puzzle for preschoolers–with a very satisfying end product. At $16, this is a good value. If you don’t have the book, bring them both home!
Good news! The following companies have sent in verification forms for several of their products.

We hope now that the new toy season in underway that more companies will submit forms! We are not independently verifiying with a lab, but we are encouraged that these companies have listed their lab and signed off on the form that their products are lead and phthalates free.
