KooKoo Puzzles offer a fun break from typical puzzles. Each KooKoo puzzle box comes with a set of four six-piece puzzles. Each piece is a roughly three by four inch laminated card. To solve the puzzle, one must stack each group of six cards so that they form a single image. In one set, these images are a colorful group consisting of a dancing flamingo, a piano playing turkey, a tutu-wearing alligator, and a penguin paired with a chicken. The cards don't line up edge to edge, and completing each puzzle requires the careful angling and stacking of each piece so that it will line up with the adjacent pieces. Once kids have mastered the four smaller puzzles, they can flip the cards over to attempt a twenty-four piece KooKoo Puzzle. It's a quick challenge that kids and parents will enjoy doing together, and the quirky illustrations are enough to entice kids to try these puzzles more than once.
