The puzzle is a brightly coloured 35 piece tray puzzle with pieces large and thick enough to be easy to handle but not so large that they don't look like jigsaw pieces. The pieces fit together in a tray that has a grey image of the puzzle printed on it and each piece outlined to show its placement, but the real magic is in the colour sequencing.

The puzzle pieces come pre-sorted into groups according to their placement on the puzzle – top, side, bottom, etc. Each group of pieces is presented to the person individually. By following the coloured clues on the tray and the sequence of steps in the instructions, the person is guided to successfully place the pieces without help. This is repeated for each group until the puzzle is complete. Because the person is generally able to select and place the pieces on their own, they have a great feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment (often accompanied by a big smile).

As the person becomes more proficient, more than one group can be presented at once, making the activity more challenging.

Included in the package is a laminated sheet showing the finished puzzle in full colour to use as a guide. Also included is a discussion sheet and key guide that can be used to lead a conversation about the completed puzzle. Not only are these puzzles colourful and fun to do, they are great conversation starters when selected to match the interests of the person.

Package Includes: 35 piece sequenced tray puzzle measuring 14" x 10", laminated full colour picture showing completed puzzle, laminated discussion/key guide and full instructions conveniently packaged in a zippered envelope.

Suitable For: A great activity for people with dementia or Alzheimer's who always liked jigsaw puzzles but now find standard puzzles too challenging. Also great for people with more abilities looking for a new and fun pastime.

Brilliant idea - and no frustration for brain injury patients!Review by G.S.

My husband suffered a terrible stroke. Therapists tried puzzles but they didn't work - he couldn't figure it out and got frustrated. I tried this one and he enjoyed doing it and was successful with no help other than identifying colors of pieces. I'll be getting more. (Posted on 12/10/2016)

Who wouldn't love our Rocky Mountain wildlife?
Lots to identify, even some camouflage!
This puzzle has easy to distinguish critters if people have vision issues

Excellent quality and fitted pieces.I bought children's puzzles first because they were cheaper, but these fit into a tray with cues, and the pieces fit well and are not 'one tab fits all'. These are well thought through, and can be used with no extra help or step by step help. Glad to pay a tiny bit more for much better value (Posted on 8/9/2016)

I have rated another puzzle and I say the same for this one they are both great at helping my Mother in Law who has dementia, she loves doing them with help from us and they make our visits much more enjoyable. We find that she actually has become more aware of her surroundings since she has been doing jigsaws and word puzzles. Sadly her short term memory does not improve but she is in a very happy place when she is kept busy. (Posted on 2/10/2016)
