The In the Forest Glow in the Dark puzzle is a classic puzzle with a fun twist: Piece it together, then turn out the lights and see all the nocturnal animals wake for the night! This 100-piece puzzle is just challenging enough for little ones to tackle on their own, but parents will have fun working on it, too.The pieces are small enough to make assembling the puzzle a fun challenge but large enough not to get lost easily. Well-made and beautifully illustrated, this forest scene features six different animals, including favourites such as the owl and racoon. Plus, we like that the puzzle is made of 90 percent recycled materials, too, so it's eco-friendly and entertaining.

This great puzzle challenged my six-year-old, but didn’t frustrate him. He loves seeing the glow-in-the-dark surprise. A great reward for his efforts!” —Michelle, mom of two
