3D Cityscape Jigsaw Puzzle

Playtime is just starting for kids who get their hands on this jumbo puzzle of streets and 3-D buildings. Made from recycled paper it gives new life to old paperboard, and it’s safe with soy and water-based inks and finish. Soy inks are based from plants and a great alternative to common petroleum-based inks. When kids get a hold of these colorful puzzle pieces they’ll be grasping a host of useful skills--honing fine motor control, recognizing colors and shapes. Once this tabletop city is in place it’s ready for cars, dolls and the occasional dinosaur to stroll down its streets. (Alex, $12.26) Where to Buy
