Carson-Dellosa Publishing Dinosaurs Activity Book & Floor Puzzle Combo Review & Giveaway (Christmas Wish List 2010)
This year while searching for unique Christmas gifts for our little man to have on under the tree on Christmas morning, we have it quite easy he is really into reptiles, bugs, trains and dinosaurs so I know what to be on the look out for but with all the options available I want gifts that are not only going to be fun for him to play with but can also be used as a learning tool! So when I was contacted about featuring a couple of products from Carson-Dellosa Publishing in my Christmas Wish List 2010 and after spending some time looking over their huge selection of not only fun but educational products I was defiantly on board to give them a try!

I was given the opportunity to also review the Dinosaurs Activity Book & Floor Puzzle Combo and again this is going to be under the tree on for “Bug” on Christmas morning so he hasn’t seen them yet but of course for a fair an honest review Chad and I checked these out as well and I’m telling you they are great! “Bug” may be a bit young for the activity book, but with they help of me and his daddy I think that he will be able to have a great time following the mazes and coloring all the awesome dinosaurs in the book!
Now, the puzzle is a completely different story this thing is awesome!!!! I love that once the puzzle is put together it makes a giant T-Rex in the same shape as a T-Rex I know as much as my little man loves dinosaurs that he is really going to love this puzzle! I also love that the pieces are large enough for his small hands and I think that makes it much easier for him to work on putting the puzzle together by himself without much help from mom and dad!
Here is a little more information about the Activity Book and Giant Puzzle Combos:
Get smart with planets, stars, rockets and other spacey things! Kids will practice basic skills as they complete mazes, hidden pictures, dot-to-dots and other activities in the colorful activity book. Then, when they put the puzzle together, the will develop visual discrimination, eye-hand coordination and motor skills while strengthening their imaginations and storytelling abilities. The Solar System and T-Rex are 3’ x 2’ giant floor puzzles with dozens of extra-thick jumbo pieces tough enough for little hands. These book and puzzle combinations are the perfect mixture of learning and fun. Appropriate for children ages 3+. Grades PK-2. $17.99 MSRP.
Additional titles: Dinosaurs, Ocean Creatures, Alphabet Train
I’m super excited to give these to “Bug” on Christmas morning and I’m looking forward to helping him put the puzzle together and helping him with the super fun activity book! I know that he is going to love them and since they are dinosaurs what more could we ask for right?
