When I bought this, I was envisioning a book made of light cardboard with animal shapes that could be punched out and assembled. I kept hoping the price would drop, because it seemed kind of expensive for a "punch and assemble" book. However, I finally decided to buy it anyway since it had been on my wishlist for so long.

I was surprised and delighted to receive an oversized box - not a book - full of thick cardboard panels. Not corrugated cheap cardboard, but very sturdy and heavy, printed on both sides. The animals are easy to assemble and are about 12" big on average. They have a fantastic modern look. I'm an adult, and have a few displayed on my shelves; the colors are great and they have a retromodern appeal that isn't childish. They are a great inexpensive way to decorate shelves, especially high-up shelves where you don't want to put books or items you'll need all the time.

I think kids would have an easy time putting these together because each animal only has a few pieces. It might be fun to jumble the parts and have them make funny imaginary animals on their own, or see if they can find all the parts for one animal. The only downside is that the slotted pieces come apart if you lift the animal off the table, so play value of the finished piece isn't as high. However, you might be able to use glue if you wanted something your child could lift or carry. Still, the fun is in the puzzle and putting them together. These would make great party decorations or favors if it's a small party. It's a fun put-together project that isn't messy. Best of all, you can easily put them back in the box and save them for later.

I highly recommend this set to anyone who likes jungle animals, not just kids. It would make an excellent gift.

Artsy game that can become a permanent decorative ensemble in the child's bedroom. East to assemble, more suitable for older children (e.g. 7/8 and above).

To be honest I was expecting smaller pieces. BUt when I noticed that they were bigger I used them as decoration for the main table at my nephews birthday party!. THey were very fun and easy to install. The only things it bothered me a bit, was the fact that some of the pieces were a bit lose so I used tape (no big deal) But of course I bought them used. Now they are at my nephews bedroom and he loves to play with them. My favorite one is the crocodile.

These are very stout! And have a nice feel to them! Very colorful and well made. Some of the grooves seem a little to big making some of the pieces not fit snugly (so when you pick up the animal a leg falls off) But come on if kids are going to play with them all the pieces will be that way in a matter of hours. I purchased them originally for baby shower decorations and then thought my kids will enjoy them a ton after they are finished being used as decor! My 3 1/2 year old had fun helping me put them together!
