Timberdoodle's review Learn more
This is the same great puzzle as The Global Puzzle, with the singular exception that 100 skillfully rendered animals are superimposed over areas where they would be found naturally. The advantage of course is that the puzzle now becomes a bit easier as a child is able to match a bit of an animal to the rest of his parts.

Is that good or bad? The results are not in yet. It would seem that relying on an artificial aid would hamper the learning process. On the plus side, it may help a balky puzzler stay on task, and over time grasp the information. Would we use this puzzle? Absolutely, especially with children under the age of 12 who might otherwise be overwhelmed with the original Global Puzzle.

    Our First "Big" Puzzle Together January 27, 2011
    Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Oberlin, OH United States  
    The Global Animal Puzzle is our first attempt at doing a "grown-up" puzzle together (parents and 8 year old daughter).  DD has already learned quite a bit from doing geography puzzles for children, so I was thrilled to see her eyes light up when she recognized the name of a country and knew which continent it was part of.  It is slow going (mainly because we have to keep stashing it in the sewing room when her younger siblings are up...they are definitely not ready for the Global Animal Puzzle!), but we are loving the time spent together and the learning involved in doing this beautiful, high-quality puzzle together.

    Excellent More Advanced Puzzle January 12, 2011
    Reviewer: Cari Dierking from Simpsonville, SC United States  
    The Global Animal Puzzle is a well made jigsaw puzzle with 600 pieces.  It is a world map with 100 exotic animals depicted that are indigenous to each part of the world.  The name of each animal is printed by the animal.  The puzzle can be challenging, but it is great way to learn perseverance along with learning so much about world geography.  Excellent jigsaw puzzle that is well worth the price.

    Challenging but great! December 29, 2010
    Reviewer: Jamie Worley  
    The pieces are tiny & definitely a challenge to keep it all together as you are working on it, but it is a beautiful puzzle and we all learned some geography in the process of putting it together. Highly recommended!

    Reviewer: Renee from California Foothills  
    Our family has really enjoyed playing with this puzzle. It has been quite educational, too, trying to find where the little pieces fit into the entire world picture! Highly recommend!
