Find the Rhyme with TopToyBox

The Boy is a genius, at least I think so (as does the Man)! He doesn’t really enjoy playing with toys for any length of time and has always been more interested in books and more lately the TV and computers (sigh). About six months ago he suddenly “got” jigsaws and since then there has been no stopping him. He has single handedly completed a 150 piece jigsaw for ages 8+ (my chest is proudly puffed out writing that). Continue reading

So here are our results… Continue reading

Toyjeanius review – Djeco opposites puzzle

We received our second Toyjeanius toy a couple of months ago now but have been having far too much fun playing with it that we have only just got around to reviewing it! We received a Djeco opposites duo puzzle which was suitably timed as the Boy has just started enjoying jigsaws and becoming much more capable with them. Continue reading
