TLC Woodcrafters #Farm Friendly Puzzle Review #Personalizedgifts

TLC Wood Crafters
I love personalized gifts because they just have that extra fine touch so when TLC Woodcrafters contacted me regarding their hand crafted items, it was something I needed to check out despite my booked up schedule. They offer personalized wooden children's gifts made in the USA. They also specialize in quality Name Puzzle Stools, Wooden Name Puzzles, Personalized Coat Racks and lots more. I had to take a look, they really make some adorable stuff.
Farm Toy Puzzle
They had contacted me regarding their Friendly Farm Puzzle but I really had no concept of it because it was to be a brand new design. After viewing some of their other designs, I thought why not, I'm sure my nephew would love this. LOL, I got it for 1 of my 3 nephews. I'm going to be in a lot of trouble with the family. Oops! I was told to submit a name for the personalization and to pick the colors, either pastel or primary colors. I chose primary colors. The Friendly Farm Name Puzzles are made out of Baltic Birch plywood. They also feature the option of personalizing your puzzle with a child's name, which is what I got. The puzzle pieces are also made from wood and the puzzle letters and the 5 farm animals are also raised up above the wooden base. The puzzle measures 14.5" long x 9.25" tall x 1/2" thick and come in a natural gloss finish.

When it arrived, I was happily surprised. It didn't look hand made to me, that's how high quality it is. The colors really pop and the artwork is really something. I ran my finger around the edges since I was worried about the wood and the slivers it may give a child but was pleased to find nice, smooth edges. It's an unique piece and I like how you can use it for educational purposes too. The child can learn about farm animals and even spelling their own name while working on their hand-eye coordination. So, educational toys are a plus in my books.

I had even taken my own pictures but then realized TLC Woodcrafters were going to use this one as their "poster child" for the Farm Puzzle design...teehee, so I decided to use their picture instead. How cute, right? Preston's going to end up being their ad. Overall, a neat item and worth looking into for your child.

I love this because puzzles help the child to work their brain, and figure things out. Plus with it being personalized, they would love it so much more!
