”This compact set takes up far less storage space than an equivalent number of standard wooden puzzles. And, unlike standard puzzles, your Junior Rainbow Pebble designs can still be completed, even if your kids lose a pebble or two.”Read the Review

My daughter is just starting to get old enough to play with this, but I love the different levels of card. I love the muted natural colors, and the cards are laminated so they should stand up well to use. So cool that the "rocks" are made of rice hulls.
My little one really likes these. He is getting the hang of placing the right shapes in the spaces, and the colors and pictures are soothing. He also likes stacking the "rocks" to make towers which is helping him figure out how to balance things with rounded edges.
My 2.5 year old daughter was maybe a bit old for this gift, but she loves playing with rocks, so enjoyed the set. The feel and shapes are similar smoothed river stones, and the pictures are fun to match or add to to create a unique design.
My son is a bit too young to put the rocks on the pictures, but he loves to free play with them. He builds some amazing shapes and structures with them and it has been fun watching him figure things out. It won't be long now and he will start making the pictures that came with the kit. It is going to be so much fun watching him grow with this kit.
These pattern pages are more forgiving and take up far less space than an equivalent number of standard wooden puzzles. Plus, if kids lose or misplace a pebble or two, it won't render the whole set worthless. There are enough supplies that several children can do this activity at one time. It develops fine motor skills and teaches color and shape matching as well. Though the set is designed for ages 18-months and up, my older kids enjoyed playing alongside their younger siblings and nieces and nephews.
