Just choose a card, there are four levels of difficulty in the card choices, and then flip and position the geometric puzzle pieces into the bug-shaped tray to match the picture. To complete the Bugzzle puzzle, your child will need to consider colors, shapes, and lengths of the 18 high-quality, dual-color puzzle pieces. The sturdy, brightly-colored pieces and 40 pattern cards will give your kindergartner’s brain a good workout in spatial reasoning, critical thinking, and problem-solving.

”While my daughter never asks to do math in a workbook, she often asks for the bug puzzle. If I leave it out on a shelf, she will pull it out on her own a few times a week and attempt the challenges.”Read the Review

”All the kids give this puzzle a double thumbs up. They love that it is a simple game they can play together or alone. It is also one that they can do without mom, even Baby Girl.”Read the Review

”I think Bugzzle is an educational toy that will also be useful for a number of years. I can see us having timed contests in the future to recreate the patterns on the challenge cards.”Read the Review
My almost 4 year old loves this puzzle game. He also enjoys making his own “designs”.
Maybe my kid just really needs to work on visual perception. He really has trouble with perceiving if the outermost tier is green, since the bug itself is green. It's good for having a talk about thickness, but he still doesn't fully get it when he's playing the game. He also has trouble with knowing to adjust the rings so that they're tilted like how the card shows. I would admit that this seems to be better fit for a kid older than 3-years-old. It's a good game, but because of the challenges he has with it, even with some of the easier puzzles, makes him less inclined to take this off the shelf himself.
My kids love Bugzzle! They will sit down and do several puzzles in a row. It's simple enough for them to work on independently too!
This will be a good addition to add to our independent play activities!
This is the cutest puzzle for little ones!
