Follow the ribbon through this rosy-coloured ballet puzzle to piece together five sweet ballerinas, each in her own special dance costume. The original watercolor artwork looks delicate, but this tough puzzle is anything but – the 48 pieces are made of extra-thick cardboard, and an Easy-Clean surface keeps them looking like new!
More Ways to Play and Learn:
- Beginners: First find and place all the pieces with the pink ribbon. Then add the other pieces until the puzzle is complete.
- Advanced puzzlers: Make the puzzle more difficult by first removing four pieces and hiding them in the box. Only take them out to use when all the other pieces are in place.
- Puzzle masters only!: Try to complete the puzzle upside-down, without looking at the artwork.
When the puzzle is complete, trace the pink ribbon with your finger, counting the times you see it twist or turn.
