Puzzle and Map in One
It’s a puzzle and a map in one! Explore the geography of the United States from the comfort of home with this beautiful map of the U.S.A. cardboard jigsaw puzzle. The 51 jumbo-sized pieces are coated with an Easy-Clean surface to keep the puzzle looking like new. Each state is shaped and brightly colored and features the state name and capital; the Great lakes are labeled, too. Most pieces are illustrated with the primary industry or hallmark of the state, such as a space shuttle on Florida, the Statue of Liberty on New York, and skiing on Utah. The puzzle map, pictured on the cover of the box for reference, measures 3 x 2 feet when completed. Puzzle play is a wonderful way for children to have fun while developing physical, cognitive, and emotional skills. As kids work at solving puzzles, they are developing fine and gross motor skills and hand-eye coordination. They develop problem-solving skills and learn to think logically. Puzzles also help with shape recognition and help to enhance memory. Puzzle play encourages goal setting and patience—both of which are rewarded when the puzzle is completed!

At first, he loved making piles of each color and a pile for ocean and looking at the pictures. Then, he started matching the "picture" on the box with the pictures on the states. I worked with him and would ask him to pick a state to start with and continue with one touching that state. I named the states without thinking much of it. After a Few weeks, my baby picked up a state and started chewing on it and my son said "she is eating Iowa, mommy!" And I was pretty surprised because he can't read. He explained that Iowa is a pig. I asked him what is the mountain and he said Colorado. We walked through a California section of the zoo and he pointed to the state and said "that's California". So by memorizing the picture and shape of each state, and kinda sounding out the first letter (this was later on), he knows every state. After a month, he puts it together himself.
-spending time with me
-learning how to match a picture or map to a puzzle
-memory (shapes, pictures)
-conversation and learning about each state (eg Statue of Liberty is in NY, Colorado has mountains, etc)
-great for all ages
Ocean where Canada and Mexico are. My son was confused when I told him it's not actually ocean above and below.
My one complaint is that the pieces aren't traditional puzzle pieces that fit and stick together, but instead just "float" within the frame. That makes it more difficult for our daughter to do on her own vs. other puzzles she owns, though I suppose it's nice she gets exposure to different styles (and it allows the shapes of the states to be properly represented).
Some of those dinky states are combined and I kind of wish they weren't but that's not a big deal. The size of this puzzle is great.
