My Review

For as long as I can remember, I have always loved doing puzzles! My mother will tell me stories from when I was a little girl and my determination to finish a puzzle, no matter how difficult it was. So when I discovered the Geopuzzle, I couldn’t wait to share my love of puzzles with my six year old daughter. I thought this would be a great opportunity to introduce the states and countries to her with a fun product and was anxious to get started. Once we received our Geopuzzle, I was surprised to see that my two year old son was also very intrigued by it. The box comes with two separate puzzles, which consist of a world map and the map of the United States. We quickly scattered the pieces for the United States puzzle and worked together to get the pieces in their proper place. My favorite feature of this particular puzzle is that each state is an individual puzzle piece, making it great for your child to get an idea of what each state looks like. I was very impressed with the quality of the puzzle and how well the pieces fit together. 

We then proceeded to put together the world puzzle, which was a bit more challenging than the first one, but not impossible! I am actually thankful that this puzzle was not easy to put together because it gave me time to explain the map to my daughter. It forces your child to slow down and really take a look at the map. The puzzle’s difficulty makes it so that your child has to think, discover, and learn where each country is located. Once again, the quality of this puzzle was very impressive and the pieces go together very smoothly. I have owned many puzzles in my lifetime and this is a top quality product that will most definitely last for many years to come. I can already envision the benefits of this puzzle, I keep thinking of the homework my children will bring home and how wonderful it will be to have this puzzle to teach and guide them! This is an all around great product and I have nothing but good things to say!

  1. I have a 5 yr old daughter, and I love to do puzzles, I think I might have to get this one for us to do together!

  2. My 4 yr old son loves puzzles and right now he’s really interested in animals and where they come from. I’ve been looking for something to teach him geography that would capture his interest. This would be perfect!

  3. My grandpa used to teach me the states and capitals using an old framed map. I have been looking for a great way to work with my kids on learning this and having fun with it. My 6 year old is a huge puzzle fan right now and is starting to understand about states, countries, etc. and this would be so much fun for him/us to use as a learning tool. What a great product!

  4. This looks like a well made puzzle. Puzzles are so much fun – what better way to help learn geography?! 🙂

  5. Thanks for the review! It’s great that your 2 year old was so interested in it, as I’m thinking of this for a 2 year old myself, who is bored with the simple wooden puzzles and would be excited by these puzzles. I know that I wish I’d had one of these as a kid, I’d be a lot better at geography today!

  6. I always wanted a map like this to help my 3 year old learn states.. Amazing chance to learn and have fun at the same time
