Added play value

Children can put the 20 large pieces together to design a wide range of different road layouts; they fit together in lots of different ways, with corners, junctions and straight roads. The pieces fit together snugly - I wondered how well they would stay together on carpet, but they keep together well, giving a smooth surface for toy vehicles to travel over.
The Giant Road offers lots of educational value - it promotes imaginative play and encourages observational skills. It gives plenty of opportunity for children to play together, as the generous size means there's lots of room for everyone; as children play, their conversational skills will grow. This set offers so much to talk about - there are lots of bright pictures showing all manner of things that will be encountered along the road, so make good use of this by encouraging your child to talk about them - and then look out for them while you are out and about, encouraging observation even more.
This is a super way to make playing with toy vehicles even more fun, and the different layouts add to the value; it;s really well produced, with shiny pictures on sturdy card. A fantastic toy/jigsaw that will give many, many hours of happy play.

My 3-year-old son was given this by his grandma for his birthday. That was 4 months ago. He's played with it practically every single day since then and is completely obsessed with it.
He loves building roads and can now create different layouts all on his own, and particularly likes to keep on remaking the road until he can make a complete layout using every single piece. It's perfect for him to create traffic jams using his dinky cars.
Given the use he has had out of it so far, I think it's fantastic value for money. Grandma is so pleased with it she's bought him the railway jigsaw and i'm going to get him the extra junctions so he can build more complicated layouts. A fantastic gift.

I bought this jigsaw for my grandson at the request of his parents, who loved its appearance and versatility but were disappointed with the quality of the card - the pieces are too flimsy to hold together well.

A jigsaw that you can then play with - brilliant idea! The pieces are fab and easy to put together, and the kids love it! It is durable enough to play with your cars on it too.View All Reviews
