A Mommy Review (in my words)

What I Like -

  • The pieces are easy to move and even for little unsuspecting fingers to accidentally pop into place.
  • The pop sound effect when a piece is placed into its home is a nice motivator.
  • When the puzzle is completed a little laughing baby fishie floats from the bottom to the top of the screen. Super cute.
  • The picture screen is simple and clear. Less is more for easily distracted boys who also have vision issues as a result of brain surgery.
  • The puzzles are simple and quick. Which helps if one is forcing a little boy to First Do Puzzle - Then Watch Pooh.
  • I was able to hold Trevy's left arm which required him to use his (weaker) right hand without too much fussing. Which means he was engaged. Engaged is good. Even if its for 2 minutes or less. Which is about how long he stuck with it.

Trevy Friendly Rating


2 thumbs up and 3 1/2 stars

(less stars because it held his attention for 2 minutes of less and required some hand over hand assistance)
