It's unusual to find this quality of printing on such a durable foam puzzle. The brilliantly colored images are virtually locked into the surface, making the picture as durable and long-lasting as the foam base. The foam is soft and lightweight, but will certainly survive even the harshest treatment by kids. The thick foam base allows each piece to stand upright on its own, allowing the pieces to be used outside the puzzle for quiet play, storytelling, and other instructional and dramatic play activities. Use them in the tub, at the sandbox, anywhere kids go. Easily cleaned with mild soap and water, or a 1% bleach solution. Includes activity ideas. Large 11'' x 14'' size. For ages 3 and up. 8 pieces.
