    Identified Special Needs Challenges:
    ADD/ADHD, Hydrocephalus, Learning Disabilities, Traumatic Brain Injury, Vision Impairment
    "Puzzles with nature, and wildlife scenes appreciated. Brain injury wise, our son maintained his long term memory. He was 16 at the time of his accident. These puzzles work out well for Jeff. He has initiation deficit. Very few things he's able to stick with. Jeff will actually request to make a puzzle. They're easy for him to put together on our kitchen table. He's learning from them. The 1st time he makes a new one...help is needed. Afterwards, he's slowly able to figure them out by himself. "

    Information about Solar System Floor Puzzle

    My 5 year old grandson loves the solar system and puzzles. This was a perfect match for him and he was excited to be able to put this together and show it to me. He doesn't want to take it apart because he likes looking at it.

    Product review of Solar System Floor Puzzle
    Posted 5/13/2014 by Paula Gooch

    The floor puzzle is brightly colored and indestrutable for a 4 year old boy, but interesting enough that his twin sister also likes to put the puzzle together.

    fantastic for so many kinds of learning
    Posted 4/15/2014 by Ben

    this is just great for 2 year olds. i bought it for my 2 year old's birthday, and it's still the first thing she goes to whenever we come home. so far she's learned a couple of the names, and asks about the others so she'll remember those before long too. so far she's gotten the idea of rotating pieces to make them fit, and is beginning to understanding about finding the right place for each piece too. the design is appealing, size is just right for the age group, the piece are strong enough to resist being stood on over carpet (though they're made of thick, good quality cardboard, not ply, so there'd be a limit to that), and it's also scientifically accurate within a certain degree of artistic license, planets are basically the right colour and comparative size. it's also good that includes some moons, asteroids, nebulae, and a galaxy, promoting further inquisitiveness. labels also should mean there's more to learn as kids get older. at first i thought the perspective of seeing the earth over the moon wasn't a good idea, since kids are used to seeing the moon from the earth, but thinking about it maybe having these positions switched is good for introducing other perspectives - the idea that you could be up there looking down here.
