The inventor has developed a jigsaw puzzle game that consists of pieces with different shapes and sizes. After the image is put together, the pieces can be pressed to make sounds and lights associated to the image on the piece.
The game is addressed to children aged between 1 and 5 years. The pictures on the puzzle can be about musical notes, vehicles (planes; fire-fighter, police or race cars, etc), domestic or wild animals, letters of the alphabet, numbers or any other image suitable for children.
Compared to other sound puzzle games that make a specific sound only when the pieces are placed in the right slot on the game board, the proposed game is a true jigsaw puzzle that gives the child the possibility to listen to the sounds at any time, by pressing the right jigsaw puzzle pieces on the game board.
Thus, the game is more educational as the sound can be triggered on the game board, without removing / replacing the pieces. Therefore, the game is more attractive and interactive, developing the children ability of matching, associating, listening and learning.
A working prototype of a jigsaw puzzle with farm animal sounds is presented in the attached file.
The Romanian inventor is looking for a partner company in toy sector that will produce and sell the game under a licencing agreement or manufacturing agreement.
