FlipStir Puzzles Reviews

My kids love mental challenges and puzzles, so we were happy to review FlipStir Puzzles by Enlivenze LLC.  Since we’re currently studying astronomy for science, we chose the Solar System puzzle.

About FlipStir Puzzles

This puzzle comes in a clear tube with a lid on it that you can’t remove.  Through the center of the top is a wand with a plastic foot on the end.  Inside the tube are 10 puzzle pieces, in our case with the solar system on them.  To play with the puzzle, you shake up the pieces and then use the wand to put the puzzle pieces in order.

These puzzles are suggested for kids from 7 years old all the way to adults.  However, my 6 year old happily played with this without much frustration.  (I think the appropriate age range depends on the kid and his or her temperament.)

Currently, there are several different FlipStir puzzles available–Rainbow Pencils, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Statue of Liberty, Periodic Table, and, of course, the Solar System that we tried out.

The puzzles come in two levels.  Level 1 puzzles are a bit easier because they have straight sides and the picture is easier to follow when assembling the puzzle thanks to bright, varying colors.  Level 2 puzzles (which our solar system puzzle is) have wavy sides and the picture is a bit more difficult to piece together because the colors of the puzzle are similar.

Our Experience Using FlipStir Puzzles

I was the first to try the puzzle, and I couldn’t believe that I couldn’t figure it out!  I worked on it for awhile until my frustration got the better of me.  Then the kids tried, and then my husband.  Of course, my husband was the first one to complete it, in pretty short time, too.  Next my kids completed it, and finally me.

We received the puzzle several weeks ago, but the kids’ enthusiasm for this puzzle has not waned.  They each do it several times a week.  My daughter also used the completed puzzle to help her memorize the order of the planets, so the puzzle is not only fun but educational.
