Why we love it
Perfect for minibeast and puzzle enthusiasts, we love this Hive Wooden Puzzle. It is a great educational toy coming with a set of 30 hexagonal wooden blocks representing parts of a honeybee colony. Each block has a dowel and holes to slot them together to form 3D honeycomb structures for learning about honey bees and the structure of a beehive and the importance of bees as pollinators. Each member of the hive has a very specific role to play and this set of blocks will introduce children to the key players in this fascinating family. There are yellow blocks to represent the cells that hold honey, worker bees on natural beech wood, eggs, larvae, drones (male bees) and the queen on a red hexagon. Children will love exploring the different roles within the hive, learning about beekeeping and the importance of protecting our precious pollinators.
These fascinating blocks will stimulate creativity and special awareness as they slot together to make 3D structures and can be combined with other blocks in open-ended play. This 3D puzzle is perfect for exploring problem solving, practicing fine motor skills and developing creative thinking with many possibilities for learning through play!
