I love educational toys so I couldn’t help getting excited at the sight of this wooden jigsaw puzzle where each piece represents a different county in Britain. What a fantastic way to learn geography this is.

After learning about UK geography kids can move on to the Map of the World, another beautifully handcrafted jigsaw puzzle in the same manner.

Both the Map of Britain and the Map of the World jigsaw puzzles are available to buy from Eco Centric.
