Happy h.o.
Great way to learn about scientists

It was fun to learn the names of some new scientists. I was glad the names were included inside the puzzle box. My only complaint is that some of the pieces were bent and they don't stay together as well as some other brands of puzzles. If they did, it would be a 5 star review for sure!

Great Puzzle

Another winner from Mudpuppy!

Great addition to our puzzle collection during quarantine

We ordered the Little Scientist puzzle to go with the Little Feminist puzzle, which we already owned and was a favorite of our 7 year old. The quality is great and it arrived surprisingly fast, although I wish the design was the same as the Little Feminist puzzle with the names printed directly on the puzzle (although the names are on the included insert). I also wish the Little Artist puzzle had the same design with 16 artists rather than 12. It’s just a silly thing that I’m sure no one else cares about but me. What can I say, I like consistency and symmetry lol. Great company & I’d definitely purchase again!

Love the puzzle!

My family enjoyed doing this puzzle and it was a perfect challenge for my 7 year old. We came to the website to see if we could find a list of the scientist names. Some are obvious and some we could find doing an internet search but a few the descriptions are vague and so we couldn't figure it out. Would love to get a list if anyone has one!

Thank you for your review!

Here is a list of the individuals included in this puzzle:
Top row (from left):
Marie Curie, Albert Einstein, Jane Goodall, Lene Hau

2nd row from the top (from left):
Isaac Newton, Vera Rubin, Jacques Cousteau, Rosalind Franklin

3rd row from the top (from left):
Carl Sagan, Mary Anning, George Washington, Carolyn Porco

4th row from the top (from left):
Louis Pasteur, Katherine Johnson, Edwin Hubble, Charles Darwin

An Adorable, Simple Puzzle for Adults too

I'm 24 and I live at home with my parents. I do mostly 500 pc puzzles because larger ones can cause my adhd and anxiety to get in the way. This puzzle made me happy, taught me about a few female scientists I didn't know. I suggest it for anyone that enjoys puzzles. I have the Little Feminists puzzle on order at B&N and I'm very excited.
