What our experts think
It was lovely seeing the children really thinking hard about where the objects should go, and celebrating when they had got it right! Puzzles like this are good for challenging children’s logical thinking to fit the pieces in the correct place.
What Goes Where also has familiar themes, like a kitchen or a city, helping develop children’s understanding of the world. We found our testers were naming objects as they placed them, and it also gave them the opportunity to discuss the scenes. Some of the pieces are quite small and need more focus and coordination to fit correctly, supporting preschooler’s fine motor skills.
It would be even better if...
Some children had trouble working out what they needed to do at first, as there are no instructions to tell children that they need to drag the objects to the scene (we found the help button wasn’t very helpful!).
The game was enjoyed briefly by our testers, but once the puzzles are finished there doesn’t seem to be a lot to keep children returning to the game. It would also be good to have hints when children are struggling too, as younger ones were put off when they couldn’t figure it out.
