NZ Native Bird Jigsaw Puzzle
We love this New Zealand themed puzzle. Designed and made in New Zealand. How sweet is that!
Featuring New Zealand native birds, this puzzle is simply stunning. Being showcased and with a backdrop of New Zealand fauna is the Kākā, South Island Tomtit, Shining Cuckoo, Yellowhead, Parakeet, NZ Creeper, Tūī, Stitchbird, Pukeko, Kea, Kererū, Morepork, Fernbird, Wren, Rifleman, Pīwakawaka, Bellbird, Kingfisher, Shag, Penguin, Brown duck, Pukeko, Pied Stilt, Kiwi, Kākāpō and Weka. Wow!!!
Can you spot the Kākāpō? She is quite well camouflaged. And did you know she is also known as the Owl Parrot? She is a large, flightless, ground dwelling Parrot endemic to New Zealand and wait for it, lives for 40 -80 years! Of course these facts mean they face a tough time against introduced nasties. As of writing, there are only 199 alive today. A concerted recovery effort is underway, but gee what a challenge it is.
The jigsaw comes packaged in a sturdy cylinder tube with metal cap, perfect for gift giving and storage.
This puzzle is available in 500 standard size pieces.
Finished size is approximately 50 cm x 35 cm.
Jigsaw puzzles are timeless and they are such a wonderful way to "unplug," especially these days. Excellent for connecting with family and friends who can participate at whatever pace suits them. Puzzles actually exercise both sides of the brain at once meaning you are being logical and creative at the same time. This can help improve problem solving skills and attention span. Puzzling is actually a great meditation tool and stress reliever. Focusing on one image for an extended period of time, without extraneous thoughts entering your mind, is in itself, meditation. No need for yoga, just start a puzzle.
