    We're all familiar with puzzles of the U.S. that consist of the 50 states of the Union (I love the ones where they never fit back in quite the same way they came out… just try to fit Connecticut back in!). I have not however, in all my puzzle-working years seen an equivalent world puzzle, consisting of country-shaped pieces to fit back together, until I saw this one. This beautiful global puzzle consists of 600 pieces, and when finished, measures 36" x 18". 193 countries in the world have all been carefully cut and crafted to form whole continents, and each is clearly labeled with its name as well as its capital city. In the case of the U.S. and Canada, most of the states and territories are even cut into their own pieces as well, except for the very small ones. Well, great, you might say, it'll really help me learn my geography, especially in regards to which countries are neighbors, but the earth is, after all, primarily ocean. What will I learn from linking all those blue pieces? I'm glad you asked! The interlocking ocean pieces each contain the name, capital, population and area of each of the 193 countries… alphabetically. This takes the "guesswork" out of the oceans, and imparts a little more information to the puzzle worker as well. Also, this forms a great framework to finish the puzzle by adding the land masses last, as most of the country shapes are not exactly conducive to interlocking. Pull this out for a family evening together, or for geography class… if you're anything like me, you won't be able to tear yourself away from a good puzzle, and the geographical knowledge will sink in almost automatically! - Jess

    Sudoku puzzles have exploded in popularity in recent years, and this product allows you to enjoy the logical puzzles with colors instead of numbers. Instead of using numbers from 1-9, Colorku uses nine differently colored wooden marbles on a large wooden board. The high-quality wood board measures 13.5" x 13.5" and is divided into nine rows, nine columns, and nine 3 x 3 squares. It has 81 wood marbles in 9 vibrant colors. The board and marbles are covered with a plastic tray that holds the balls on the board when storing, and flips over to serve as a ball holder while playing. The board comes with 100 different puzzle cards that come in four different difficulty levels and tell players where to place the first few marbles. The solution to each puzzle is achieved when the player ends up having one and only one of every color ball in each of the nine rows, columns, and 3 x 3 squares. Solutions are included. There's even a color conversion card that shows you how to alter any Sudoku puzzle from any book or news-paper and solve it using your Colorku board. Think the 100 puzzle cards that come with the game won't be enough? Luckily, there are a few Expansion Packs, which offer additional puzzle cards at a variety of levels. Each pack offers 100 puzzles with solutions. The Beginner Puzzles are fairly simple, the All Level Puzzles offer puzzles for four different difficulty levels, and the Advanced Puzzles will drive you crazy. The durable wooden game and fun yet challenging puzzles will be enjoyed by new and old Sudoku fans alike. ~Rachel

    Don't just learn the pieces of a human body - put one together for yourself! This high-quality floor puzzle contains 100 pieces, and when completed, is 4' tall. It's double-sided, with the skeletal system portrayed on one side and the major organs and blood vessels portrayed on the other, in bright, eye-catching colors. Major bones and structures are labeled with a number and identified at the bottom of the puzzle. The pieces are made of heavy-duty cardboard, which the manufacturer claims is 20% thicker than that of other puzzles, and have an easy-to-clean surface, which is always a plus to something lying on the floor of a busy household!

    Your kids will enjoy working on their U.S. Geography skills as they assemble these fifty-one large puzzle pieces that come together to form a finished 2' x 3' floor puzzle. The puzzle pieces are larger than your average puzzles (great for little hands) and are easy-to-clean as they have a special surface allowing you to simply wipe them down if they get dirty or sticky. Larger states are individual pieces, while smaller states are clumped together. Each state is brightly colored and clearly identified with the name, capital, and representative illustration. You will be "floored" at how quickly your children will learn their U.S. Geography with the help of this fun and educational puzzle! – elise

    Another great manipulative from Lauri! This set includes 55 Tall-Stacker™ Pegs, puzzle numbers 1-10, and 10 orange and vivid green, rectangular Crepe Rubber number boards (7 ¾" long). The child puts the puzzle numbers into the blue number board on one end of the rectangle, and there is an equal number of holes in the green peg crepe rubber board at the opposite end. Pegs are multi-colored: red, yellow, green, orange and teal. Number puzzles can only connect to the peg board with the correct number of holes. These are good for number recognition and counting practice. Note: colors vary from box picture. Latex-free and washable! ~ Donna

    Recent Toys has added another great puzzle to their line of brainteasers. The Gear Ball has 6 sides, and each one is a different color. The ball twists and turns smoothly because of the gear action within. You can even see the gears moving on the outside! Grasp the ball in both hands and twist in opposite directions. This will scramble the pattern and then you can work to match up the colors again. Better yet – have someone else scramble it for you! I love puzzles that are contained in one piece - great for travel. Get 'geared-up' for hours of fidgety, twisty, and turny fun!

    Ready for a real brain puzzler? The simple word search concept has been turned on its head in this book – literally! Letters are oriented in four different directions, and depending on which way you're looking at it, some letters change into a different letter. For instance, it might be an "E" when right-side up, but an "M" or "W" if you rotate it to the left or right. And it might be used as any or all of those three! When you finish a puzzle, the leftover letters will spell a quote and its author. 72 of these puzzles will probably take a while to get through! And yes, don't worry, solutions are included in case you get stuck. 96 pgs. – Chad

    Looking for a little more excitement from your dot-to-dot puzzles? These puzzles add color and a few other elements to make things interesting. Six colored pencils (with erasers) are included in a pouch in the front of the book. The dots in the puzzles are all different colors. After picking a puzzle, start with the pencil that matches the first dot and keep using that color until you reach a dot of a different color, when you will switch to the pencil that matches the color of the dot. With several color-switches in each puzzle, you'll have lots of fun creating pictures that are colored appropriately. Another feature of this book is that some puzzles include stars among the dots. When you reach a star, pick up your pencil, find the next number, and start drawing again from there. Puzzles have anywhere from 100 to over 300 dots and make all kinds of fun scenes. Eighty-four puzzles are included in all, with answers provided in the back. 96 pgs, pb, spiral-bound. ~ Rachel
