How did this product make your life easier?

Sharon: The number street puzzle is well designed for the age group in that the colours and numbers and animals used to enable it to be a puzzle that can be put together on its own or a great way to sit with your child and talk about the numbers, colours and animals to aid their development and learning. It's got a handle at the top of the box which I love as they can bring it with them in the car or around the house and if there are spillages (food/drink etc) as long as it's not been sitting in a puddle too long it can be easily wiped.

Jessica: A great puzzle with bright colours. Good for independent play. Good for learning numbers and counting. Used and liked by both my 2-year-old and 4-year-old. 2-year-old able to do so as included in the box is a scale picture of the completed puzzle which she uses as a template.

Sarah: I think this is a very good quality game and it has a lot of nice features (it stores well, has nice illustrations, has some educational value in assembling a puzzle and teaching counting, shapes, colours etc). I like that it’s made of cardboard and not plastic, and I think the company is a good one in that they will replace any missing parts for free.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Rachel: I would recommend this to other mums as I’ve found it really useful to encourage counting and recognising numbers

Jessica: I believe the product is definitely a winning one as it is great for independent play and promotes number learning and counting. It’s a bright and colourful puzzle and is very good quality.

Sharon: As I'm currently working with my child specifically in relation to their speech it's a great interactive way to be able to play with my child without it being a chore or homework- doing a puzzle but working on colours, numbers and animals in a fun child friendly way is perfect and makes things easier for me than having to print out exercises off internet and cut them out and trying to make paper colourful and fun!

Would you choose this product to win?

Sarah: This product has a lot of nice features. It’s well made, reasonably priced, has educational features, packs away in a small space and is easy to travel with, doesn’t have so many small pieces that it’s easy to lose them. It has cute designs on it and feels wholesome and nice. The company is great in that they will replace pieces for free.

Sharon: As interactive puzzles go, this one is fantastic as it's durable, easy to put away and carry around with the handle, suitable for children to play with on their own to develop their own skills or along with others to aid learning in colours numbers and animals.

What changes would you make to this product?

Jo: The box could be a little stronger/sturdier, especially the lid. The girls love carrying it around and being able to open and close it themselves but this means that the wear and tear is showing already, over a short amount of time. I know that this happens to most boxes, but I feel with reinforcement to the lid this would protect the puzzle and make the appearance better for a longer period of time.

Rachel: If I’m honest I would prefer it to be slightly smaller so we could take it away on holiday.
