Hi there, after a period of having no interest my dd has started revisiting her jigsaws again, we have alot of 12, 24 & 36 piece ones that she does with ease, I bough her a couple of ELC 42 piece ones & again they are no problem & very good quality. I had to throw out alot of the Ravensburger ones we had as the pieces broke very easily.
Can you recommend good quality jigsaws, we had Orchard toy ones when dc were younger but havn't invested in their 40 piece plus ones, is the quality the same? The Djeco ones look beautiful but is the quality the same? What is the average for a 4 year old? We are going to buy a couple of 54 piece ones so that will challenge her a bit as the 42 piece ones are done easily & quickly, would that be about right for her age group (first child so noone to compare her to!)

I think it is about right for her age as I know a few other kids who do 40+ and the same size jigsaws according to their mums, as your daughter.

The Orchard ones are good.

Galt magic puzzle jigsaws (about 40/50 pieces) are robust (box not so much in the hands of an interfering toddler...) and have 'hidden' pictures you need to rub your finger on to reveal the image underneath - although I have circulation problems so it never works with my icy fingers!

The galt toy jigsaw are lovely. Got them for my eldest and they are still lovely. Not sure where sells them but sure you can get them on line. We had a lovely one in the jungle which had big animal cut outs to fit in . So lovely - miss those days. Dd1 now 17

My 4 yo is jigsaw obsessed. The biggest one we have to date is 100 pieces. I tend to scout round charity shops and pick them up from there, then you can get a few for 20p- £1 and when you're done or if your dc doesn't take to them you can just re-donate.

We had a great quality Melissa and Doug floor puzzle which your dd is probably too old for but I have had a look on amazon and they do have more complicated ones.

That's great, thanks so much, wow 100 pieces Getnaked, that's seriously impressive! Will have a look at the charity shops, didn't even think of those, Jigsaws can be quite pricy. I'll get on Amazon now & have a look at the Galt ones, we had some Galt farm ones when dc were younger & they were lovely agree that the boxes aren't very strong!
