4-D Torso Puzzle
Our price: $20.95
It was the 4-D Torso Puzzle that was the beginning of our addiction to these collectible-quality puzzles. While a mere 32 pieces, it was challenging for the entire family and remains one of our favorites today. There are many torso models currently on the market, but none are as demanding. Put this together a couple of times and you will definitely know your basic internal anatomy!
The finely-detailed sculpturing with hand-painted parts ensures that this puzzle is up to medical-school quality. Not quite five inches tall when assembled, so fine motor skills are a must, but even the youngest child will enjoy studying the various components and their placement. For those who want to know, a bladder is depicted but there are no gender-related details.

CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.
Got this for my 2 autistic kids ages 16 and 10. The 16 year old has heart issues so I thought this would help him and his sister better understand what's happening. It's a great size. Easy to do. She loved it right away. He's like really mom lol. I would recommend this to anyone who has kids. Especially with special needs. Definitely would buy it again. Have fun.
This was smaller than I expected. However, he had fun taking it apart. And was a little frustrated putting it back together. But it did get done.
It doesn't stay together very well.
My biggest complaint with this puzzle is the size (difficult for clumsy hands to place everything just so) and the directions. After becoming completely frustrated with it, I had to put it together for my son. Even I had a tough time of it. While it shows the major placement of parts of the body, there are no labels. This renders it more of a puzzle and less of a learning tool. If it was 3 inches taller and came with a poster like diagram with labels and brief descriptions of the functions I would give it a five but as it is it just isn't good enough...
"Not sure" says the little guy... Mom says, "It is ok for teaching younger children about inside their body but may be better for a little older child.."
