The Giraffe is approximately 13-1/4 in. high, 8-1/2 in. wide, and is Lime Green in colour.The design of our Giraffe is based on the same principles as the Mother Duck (W-1117). Referring to the body structual components that make up the puzzle.THE PUZZLE-MAN TOYS Our wooden toys are created for the safety and education of all. We started designing for young children, but soon found that every person in the family was the kid having fun. While having fun, learning skills are very apparent. These wooden toys help develop dexterity, hand/eye coordination, colour, shape, size identification, problem-solving and reasoning skills, plus many others.All of our jigsaw Puzzles are created without a frame to insert the pieces into, as most others are. We want the child to match and compare body parts that go together or structural shapes to each other, in order to reassemble each design. Not put a piece into a frame that matches the frame, having no consideration for the relationship of the components that make up the design. The grain of the wood plays an important part as all designs are cut from a solid piece of wood.
