Farkash Toys Handmade Wood Puzzle Review

About Farkash Toys:
Farkash Toys is a family business located in Naples, Florida. All their puzzles and toys are handmade. They are safe, non-toxic and eco friendly. They use clean recycled wood and finished projects are left natural or treated with food grade seed oil.

Farkash Toys was kind enough to send me two wonderful puzzles to review. One is a beautiful, intricate Mammoth and the other is a cute, simple three piece heart. The Mammoth can be a bit of a challenge even for me. The heart is perfect for my 3 year old. He enjoys putting it together by himself and holding it up to his chest. I keep it up on the desk and he pulls it down several times a day to put together. It is perfect for his short attention span.

What do I ♥ about them?
I am in love with these puzzles! They are so soft and smooth. The wood smells great! I love that farkash toys uses recycled wood that is left over, giving it new life.

What would I change?
Some of the piece in the Mammoth are a bit thin. I would make the pieces a bit larger to be able to handle every day wear and tear. It looks like that is the only puzzle with that problem though. All theyir other designs are well constructed.

What do I think overall?
I think handmade toys are the best kind to own. I know we will cherish these for years to come. They are so beautifully made with lots of care. Farkash Toys offers a great selection and even take custom orders. The possibilities are endless. They even make natural wood teethers!
