New addition to Orchard Toys

Published on: 14th September 2012

New this month from Orchard Toys is a 30-piece jigsaw depicting a jungle train.

Children will see the trucks full of jungle creatures and their babies taking shape as they piece together the Jungle Express jigsaw.

The jigsaw will help them with their counting and number skills – with one elephant in the first truck, through to 10 turtles in the tenth. It will also help them to compare, discuss and investigate; develop hand-eye co-ordination and fine motor skills, and the jigsaw links with Early Learning Goals and National Curriculum Key Stage 1.

To encourage children’s observational skills and as a guide for parents and teachers, there are lots of ‘talkabout’ points on the back of the box.

As with all Orchard Toys products, the jigsaw is made from thick 100% recycled board with a wipe clean, glossy finish. The brightly coloured, chunky pieces are easy for little hands to hold, and the box has a handle to make it easy to carry around.
