Geopuzzle Complete Boxed Set of 6
The Global Puzzle we carry is an incredible teaching tool. But why wait until your child is 10 years old to teach him geography, when children as young as four can learn with amazing accuracy the countries of Europe, Africa, Latin America, and Asia and the states of the USA, with Geopuzzles?
Pieces Shaped Like Individual Countries
Just like The Global Puzzle, pieces of Geopuzzles are shaped like individual countries or states, so children learn as they put the puzzle together. Geopuzzles are made from durable cardboard. Jumbo-sized and brightly-colored Geopuzzle pieces are easy for chubby hands to manipulate. Winner of a Dr. Toy Smart Play/Smart Toys Award, these puzzles are perfect for ages four to 12.
Learn the Name, Shape, Capital and Location
As children assemble Geopuzzles, they learn not only each country's name, shape, and capital, but where it is located and how the entire continent fits together. Retail is $14.99 each.

I really enjoy using these puzzles to teach geography. It's fun and doesn't feel like "school work" and even I learn/review while helping my student. They're pretty difficult for my first and second grader they need help and my older kids like working on them independently.
This is a fun learning tool!
Fun and easy way to learn geography! We have even used them while spending time with grandparents. Fun for everyone!
I love the idea of having educational puzzles, but I wish these were better quality. Some of the cardboard pieces were stuck together and others were bent. After opening the bags containing the puzzle pieces, cardboard 'dust' and fragments were everywhere. Also, it would've been helpful to have separate reusable bags or boxes of some sort to store the pieces in so they don't get mixed together.
Not a hard puzzle (my daughter's 10), but effective for helping you learn the shapes of the countries and where they fit in with each other. Good geography practice! I was impressed by how sturdy the puzzle pieces were compared with other puzzles we have. The smaller countries are combined into single larger pieces, rather than being individuals.
