THE JIG IS UP!
(Buffalo Games; buffalogames.com)
We like jigsaw puzzles, and Buffalo Games' 300-piece puzzles have a lot to choose from (you can also get puzzles with up to 4,000 pieces). We put together the Country Snowman Puzzle and the Peanuts puzzle: The World War I Flying Ace.
Tricia wrote about the Snoopy puzzle: "This puzzle shows Snoopy as a World War I flying ace. It looks like there are supposed to be gunshots going through his doghouse, which he is pretending to fly on. It shows him wearing a scarf, goggles and a helmet. I really like this puzzle because I like to be challenged. It is harder than the puzzles I normally do, which are 100-piece puzzles. The World War I Flying Ace puzzle is so difficult I crashed and burned trying to do it!"

ROXX SKULLZZ GAME
(Imperial Toy Corp.)
The Roxx Skullzz Game is much like the old game Skullzz. It is fun and addictive. The tricks are kind of hard, so you just want to keep trying. Sometimes, though, the game gets really boring when it goes too long. If kids try to collect all the different Roxx, it will be a lot of fun.

BUILD YOUR OWN ROBO-PUP
This was a really fun toy. You have to be cautious not to lose any of the parts and screws. I liked putting it together, and it had detailed instructions that were easy to follow. The instructions had words and photographs that made it easy to visualize where to put things. Once the dog is together, it walks, barks and wags its tail, and its eyes light up. It was great to see what was inside a toy like this because I always wondered how toys like this worked.
