Three Little Piggies Smart Game
Three Little Piggies
I love the thought behind this logic puzzle specifically designed for preschoolers. Each of the three puzzle pieces features a windowed house so that your child can keep track of the placement of the pigs. During the day the pigs frolic in the river, but at night, when the wolf is about, they need to be safely tucked into their homes. The challenge of the game is to place the three large puzzle pieces on the game board so that the pigs stay outside during the day and inside at night. Also included with the game is a sweet 24-page wordless picture book with their version of the story of the Three Little Piggies. This is a perfect brain game for young children.

Once upon a time...
Can you help these three smart pigs build their houses? Can you set them up so that the pigs can play outside? If you spot the wolf can you help the pigs stay safe inside their houses? Three Little Piggies is a perfect brain game for young children.
It features 3 big puzzle pieces that are easy to hold, and kids will be intrigued by the way the pigs fit inside the houses and look through the windows.

”I love the sense of accomplishment on this 4-year-old’s face when he figures it out on his own. Don’t you know he’s proud of himself?”Read the Review

”My daughter absolutely loves Three Little Piggies! ...My favorite thing is when she finds a solution that isn’t the one suggested in the challenge book. It shows me that she is really gaining the critical thinking skill.”Read the Review
Fun logic game. Comes with a cute picture story so our son can "read" it to us about the piggies. Two sets of puzzles daytime (no wolf) and nighttime (with wolf). Puzzles build on each other and increase in complexity with self checking answers on back of page. I wish that all puzzles included all 3 piggies on the board set up, as all solutions have all 3 houses on the board. Our 3-year old doesn't yet grasp that all 3 houses are used each time, regardless of the number of piggies in the setup. This, requires some extra help from Mama to set up. Still recommend this game.
What a great thinking game for all ages. It may say preschool on the box, but my whole crew enjoys this brain exercising game. It's been great for at home, and I have put the set in a drawstring mesh bag for trips to the doctor's office and other times when mouths and feet need to be quiet, but brains and hands can be busy.
This game can be played two different ways and it's lots of fun. It's an especially great game for any kids that really love the Three Little Pigs story. The game also comes with a wordless book retelling the Three Little Pigs story. All of my kids love the book.
My kids love the challenge of this game. It's the just-right amount of challenge for them at their ages.
Learning through games is always a hit in our house. My 3.5 year old son took a bit of time to catch on, but once he understood how to move and rotate the pieces to solve the puzzle, he was thrilled. Younger siblings could enjoy the wordless book, too, which included opportunities to discuss emotions as well as giving a story framework for the game.
