Galison

This giveaway is now over with 195 comments. Thank you to all who entered. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ donna444444!

I had the pleasure to review a great company called Galison. I love puzzles for my kids. It keeps them busy without having to use the television or a video game. It stimulates their mind in a creative way and they really love doing them.

I received their Collectible Tin Puzzle - Ocean Life. It had 100 pieces and was the perfect size for my soon-to-be 7 year old. Once put together, the puzzle image was beautiful. It also came is a really nice tin box. I find most puzzle boxes of ours get bent and damaged and soon my kids can't see the photo of the puzzle they're trying to create!

My daughter had the chance to try their Bold Patterns Constructibles Learning Set. It was really neat! It came with 25 interlocking slotting card pieces that were super study and came in a nice hard box as well. The patterns were fun and it will be great for hand-eye coordination and reinforcing principles of balance and spatial relationships. Both of my children loved this one too.

I encourage you to head on over to Galison and see all of their wonderful educational toys for all ages. They also specialize in fine art stationery and paper gifts. Go ahead and get something for yourself while you're there!

Galison is generously giving one of my lucky readers a Constructible Kit of their choice. You'll really love this addition to your toy box!
