Bigjigs Mosaic Tray Review

*sobs* This is our last review as part of this team of Bigjigs Play Patrol Agents. Syd has loved each and every toy he has been sent to test out, and we have really enjoyed being part of the team. Keep an eye out on the Bigjigs facebook page, as very soon the search will begin for a new team of toy testers!


Bigjigs Mosaic Tray


This month we were sent the Mosaic Tray to review. Syd is going through a big puzzles phase at the moment, so he is really enjoying this toy. He did take a little bit of persuading that freestlying was allowed though, he was convinced the only aim was to try and fit it back in! With a little encouragement we have made houses, rockets, flowers and all sorts of patterns.





Only then do we move onto the challenge of fitting it back into the tray. My elder two have both been utterly bamboozled by this, and it is quite entertaining watching them getting flummoxed by it!




The toy encourages manual dexterity, and colour recognition, as well as making your child think creatively. It is a lovely colourful and eye-catching toy, and at only £5.99 provides a good value for money addition to the toy box. Another thumbs up from us!

    This is a lovely puzzle, Georgie got given one for Christmas by my great aunt and it has been a big hit. She loves trying to make pictures with the shapes, and my Dad was addicted to making patterns with it!

    I am sad to see the end of this years’ play patrol scheme too, it’s been fantastic.

    I love toys like this that give you the chance to think and play. I have found that toys like this that ‘just getting on with it’ is not easy for the little one either and I end up playing with it for a bit to show him the potential and after a while he gets the idea and catches on. Great price too, would be lovely as a gift.

    I do love these. It’s such a basic and traditional toy, but it’s been around forever because it is so elegant. It’s a really good price for such a large and colourful one too 🙂

      No, we aren’t re-applying either, feels fairer to let someone else have a go! Maybe we will reapply next year though as I do love their toys!

    I love good quality timeless toys for kids like this. Don’t tell anyone but these puzzles use to always confuse me – the kids could get all the bits back in the box- but not me!

      Dont tell anyone, but I have the photo of it before we took it out of the packaging, just in case I get stumped!

    I’ve not seen this toy before but I like the idea of being able to build with the different shapes and the bright colours of it all. x

    That looks like a great puzzle and what a superb price too. POD would really enjoy this too, she loves putting things back together!

    Perfect pocket money toy, and I can totally see my teens flummoxed (great word) by it too!

    Kaycee would love the challenge of getting this back in the box while Ella would love to just play with all the pieces.
    I like the price and think it would make a great birthday present for some of my nieces and nephews 🙂

    Another great toy from Bigjigs. I think my son would probably struggle with the idea of ‘just making shapes’ too, he’d want it all to fit back in. A great toy to encourage the imagination though.
