Puzzles and a giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Logan is now getting to the age where he is really starting to understand a lot and his motor skills are quickly advancing. Some of our favorite things to do each day are work on using a fork and spoon during meals, take apart and put together this Melissa and Doug train and play with puzzles and shape sorters.

I got one of the typical knob puzzles and a few fun ones with safari animals and vehicles (this one makes noises when you put them in the right spot). He loves taking everything apart and I'm slowly teaching him to put them back in their correct spots.

I will show him once and then sit back and watch as he explores putting them in the wrong places and how they don't fit everywhere. Watching a kid learn is one of the craziest experiences, it's truly miraculous to watch their little brains taking everything in and even better are the smiles and claps once it clicks and they truly understand what they are doing! I, personally,  love reading and working on puzzles. I'm hoping that as he grows, these will be some fun activities that we will be able to do together.

Needless to say, I'm always on the hunt for fun activities for us. We have mounds and mounds of snow outside and are having our fair share of cabin fever days (longing for warmer weather, long walks and getting the mail without having to search in the snow for our mailbox).

I was lucky enough to be able to try out a puzzle from Piczzle Photo Puzzles through Tomoson.

A little bit about the puzzle-
Piczzle's Cardboard Puzzles are made of outstanding materials, top craftsmanship and the highest print quality. They are constructed of a premium grade cardboard that has been laminated with a glossy finish. Our cardboard puzzles are precision press cut so that all pieces will be perfectly match one another and they are printed using an advanced digital printing technique that results in sharp, multicolored prints.

Basically you can make a picture puzzle out of any of your favorite photos! 

It was so simples. I went onto their websites, picked out my puzzle, uploaded a photo and put in my information. A few days later, my puzzle was at my doorstep.

There were quite a few sizes but I picked a medium puzzle with larger pieces (16 total) in the hopes that larger pieces would mean we could put this together with Logan sooner. I wanted a fun photo of himself that would make him excited to take the puzzle apart and put the pieces back together again.

When it arrived, I was so excited to see that all the pieces came in a box with the main photo on the front. Easy to know what we are putting together and to know which puzzle we are getting. The pieces were good quality and easy to lock together. The photo on each piece turned out really nice- there was no funny color to it and it looked just like the photo I sent them.

I really want to send them one of my travel photos to make into the largest puzzle!

Now here is the fun part for you- I am giving away one small Piczzle puzzle!
Just check out their website here and write a comment on your favorite puzzle on their site between now and Monday.  ;)

You can check out more of Piczzle Photo Puzzles on Facebook and Piczzle Photo Puzzles on YouTube. 

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Very cool! I'd pick the Basic 15 piece wooden puzzle for Allie.
