Scramble Squares Product Review & Give A Way!

As a family that loves puzzles, I can say that Scramble Squares are by far the coolest and most challenging puzzles we have ever done.  With only 9 pieces, one would think no problem, right?  WRONG!  The hubs is likened to a puzzle master and let me just tell ya he couldn't figure it out and still hasn't. 

I believe the words "this is simple" actually flowed from his mouth as he first sat down.  "Hey Honey, how is that puzzle coming along?"

I came across Scramble Squares when I searching online and I found AblePlay.org.  Able Play is a company that reviews products that are user friendly for children with learning and physical disabilities.  They have a rating system that rates products based on the special needs that some children have.  Many of the toys on the Able Play website would be great for workboxes.  That was just my thought for the Scramble Squares. I know this will be a great puzzle to keep Alpha Boy happy and content while I am working with one of my other children.  The Scramble Squares are great for critical thinking too!

Scramble Squares are recommended for ages 4-104, I think that covers everyone, right?!  There are 140 Scramble Square to choose from.  They have everything from Roosters to Rodeos.  The Lil' Chef got the Ice Cream you Scream puzzle.  Computer Girl got horses.  Alpha Boy got Dinosaurs.  The hubs got Football.  I got Sea Shells.  We also got Noah's Ark, Frogs and Insects.  Please do not ask which one is our favorite because they are all really great! 

After an afternoon at the beach the girls pulled out the Sea Shells puzzle.


Not only are these good for workboxes, I thought because the age range is so wide that these would be great to just have on hand for a last minute gift.  Scramble Squares can be purchased for only $9.95 plus s&h. 

Now for some great news!  b. dazzle, the company that has created Scramble Squares, has graciously offered to host a give a way for one Scramble Square Puzzle (of your choice) to 5 of my readers.  What a Blessing!  Please DO NOT FORGET to leave me your email address so that I may contact you if you are a winner. 


Oh, so close!

I am going to run the contest until June 1st.  Here are the ways that you can enter.  Please leave a seperate comment for each way that you enter.

    I spoke with the owner/creator of Scramble Squares this evening and I told her we haven't been able to solve one yet.  I then asked her if we were normal?  She assured me that we were!

Oh I'm the first - maybe I'll be lucky and win!!! My 10 kids love puzzles, and this would challenge even my best puzzle-doers! And, I hadn't considered using them in a Workbox!

I've just subscribed to LSG. I learned about your giveaway through the Workboxes group. I'd probably have to pick either Ancient Egypt because we're all fascinated by Egypt, or Volleyball, as my husband is a college volleyball coach. I bet we could get his players hooked on the puzzle when they come over to our house!

These are so neat! It's hard to choose just one. I think my girls would love the Ballet Scramble while I think my little man would prefer the Diggin' Dinos Scramble.

Michele said...

These look very cool! My boys and I spent alot of time looking at all the scramble squares and we loved the Washington DC one. They are all so neat!

How fun!
I just became a follower, I got your link from the Workboxes group.
There are so many great ideas for these, and it is hard to choose one favorite! One of my kids does have a thing for owls right now, however, so I'm thinking the owl one would be great for him!
