100 "Addition Equation" Puzzles
Good for learning simple addition
I got these on sale and don't think I would have spent the full price on them. They are a great tool for young kids to see equations, but they don't hold the attention for long. Each puzzle piece can fit with 'wrong' answers so kids don't necessarily know if they're getting a correct answer by the puzzle, but the pictures on each problem match with the correct answer so that helps. There are 10 boxes of addition by each number 1-10 (ex: box 1 has problems 1+1, 2+1, 3+1,...10+1; box 2 has problems 1+2, 2+2, 3+2,...10+2), so overall the equations will repeat from box to box but not within the same box.

I am generally pleased with my purchases from Oriental Trading. This was an exception to that rule! First of all, the 2-piece puzzles included in each volume were completely interchangeable, so there is no way for a child to self check if he has made a correct match or not (except, of course, by counting). In addition, the puzzles themselves are made from very flimsy cardboard. Many of my pieces appeared damaged/peeling. And some of the graphics were printed off the edge of the piece. Also, this 10 volume set included duplicates of Vol. 5, and was missing Vol. 4.
The customer service rep that assisted me with my return was very nice and helpful, though!
