We have had fun with the FlipStir puzzle, but I must say that it is much more challenging than it appears! It took me a while to assemble the puzzle, much longer than I expected. Out of the kids, only 1 of mine have been able to put the puzzle together, but not for a lack of trying! It’s definitely been a challenge. A couple kids did get frustrated with it but have kept going back to try and complete the puzzle.
The FlipStir Puzzle is a great toy to take along on car rides or traveling to keep little hands busy. We are happy we had the chance to check out this puzzle and are eager to see if Enlivenze LLC brings out more puzzles in the future.
