The range includes twists on the classic games; bingo, dominoes, flashcards, a jigsaw and also a giant alphabet and number floor puzzle all aimed at supporting early years learning for children aged three and upwards.
The Into The Wild Alphabet and Floor Puzzle will hone wild animal knowledge as well as their alphanumeric skills by creating a giant 10-foot long puzzle with favourites from the animal kingdom.
