Holiday Gift Guide: Colorado Color Pattern Puzzle

Holiday Guide

This is 128 solid wood triangular shaped pieces. I think it is sort of like piecing together a quilt. Making repeating patterns and shapes. This has been at our house for a number of years and still is in good shape and is played with on a regular basis.

If it is sitting out, even my older kids will play around with it. I consider this a coffee table toy. The sort that will be played with endlessly if it is sitting out, but quickly overlooked if put away in a cupboard. It is one of my favorites.

Made in the USA.

Available here.

    Great ideas! Just to share, i think we will be giving alot of music this year. I picked up a great kid’s cd for my 6 yr. old at Borders by MILKSHAKE. It’s awesome, we both love it.

    Thanks so much for doing this. . . I’m such a big fan of classic, timeless, inventive toys, and really appreciate you sharing some of your favorites for us. Hopefully, as in the past, you’ll continue to share holidays traditions/ideas with us as well. This may be your red headed stepchild of a blog, but I’ve always been a big fan of it!

    I just have to say that I’m a 5th grade teacher, and every year, I am stunned at how my “old” students still want to play with geometric shapes. They love to make patterns and shapes using them. Great suggestion.

    Um. Sorry if this is stupid, but… These toys with all the little parts? How do you keep all the little parts? My kids drag things all over the house and then I yell and it’s generally unattractive. Thoughts?

    When I called HearthSong today to order this product, I was disappointed to learn that this particular puzzle is now made in Thailand. Perhaps yours was purchased before the manufacturing of this toy and every other toy in the world was moved overseas?
