Otherwise you might have to deal with, “Are we there yet?” before you’ve even left your neighbourhood.

We’ve come up with special magnetic puzzles that will provide hours of fun for your little ones. The series consists of 10 animal magnet boards, each featuring a different region in southern Africa with magnets of the animals that occur there. For example, Hermanus, the Drakensberg, the Kruger National Park and Table Mountain.

Every set also includes interesting facts about the animals and birds. Did you know that seagulls can drink fresh water as well as sea water, and that an ostrich can live up to 75 years?

Every set also includes interesting facts about the animals and birds.

These puzzles were designed in co-operation with Kobus Galloway.
