Flipzles - a unique and educational puzzle! Review & Giveaway!

*please note* there have been off & on problems with the rafflecopter widget for this giveaway, if you do not see it now, please continue to check back and try again! so sorry for this inconvenience, I'm working on it now!

I think it's safe to say that most kids love puzzles, right?? Except of course, Bennett. He's always the exception. He tends to get bored quickly and move onto other things, so puzzles are really hit or miss. Recently, a personal friend of mine, Vicki, started a business called Flipzles. She asked to send one for Bennett to try out. And the truth?? Bennett LOVES this puzzle. It's unlike anything else, and it engages him in ways that other puzzles don't. They're so innovative and imaginative. I'm super excited to tell you more about these!

 
"Flipzles are excellent educational puzzles for children of all ages. Each unique design combines three layers of fun for children. They are not only educational, as they provide play opportunities for kids, but also challenging as kids flip the pieces back to solve the puzzle."


Each puzzle has between 20-25 pieces, and each of the pieces is two sided. On one side, is the face of the puzzle that they will assemble together. And on other other side of each piece, is a character or object that fits right into the puzzle theme. This aspect of the puzzle encourages kids to use their imagination and create play scenarios.

The Flipzle that we played with is the Pet Mansion. This was perfect for Bennett because he loves animals. Each puzzle is made of thick wood, so the pieces stand on their own and are easy to set up to play with. Bennett had a blast arranging them around the table and calling out what sound each of the animals made.

Sorry I'm about to get really picture heavy on you, but I couldn't decide which photos to include so you get a bunch!


There are six different Flipzles available, there's a Rescue Station, the Pet Mansion, a Farm, Castle, House and a Pirate ship. Vicki designed them all herself and I promise you won't be disappointed, so go take a look!

I highly, highly recommend these puzzles. They are challenging in such a positive way, yet super fun at the same time. I've never seen Bennett so excited over a puzzle before, and it made this Mama's heart so happy.

And she's offered to give one away to one of my readers, and the winner gets to choose which puzzle they want!! This is just in time to stash away for an awesome Christmas present, don't you think??  YAY!

This is an awesome idea! On our family vacation last week, one of my twins brought over a 500 piece puzzle and said he wanted to put it together. Obviously it was way too difficult and I felt horrible that we don't have any puzzles appropriate for their age. I would choose either the rescue one or the pirate one and then I would buy the other so that each of them received one.
