This Elephant Puzzle design was my very first design of any of the toys that we started manufacturing in 1974 within "THE PUZZLE-MAN TOYS" line. Its conception was based on my childhood. In 1947, when I started kindergarten, my teacher was telling us stories about animals of the world. My favourite was the elephant, because of its size and character. But most importantly was how we were taught to imitate the elephant. We were shown to clasp our hands together, and to hunch over, hanging our arms down, with clasped hands swaying back and forth, left to right, to imitate the swaying trunk of the elephant. This was cool. I have shown this to my kids and then my grandkids. So, in my design, the trunk is down, because this is how a child sees the elephant, even though many adults believe that the elephants trunk should be up for good luck.
THE PUZZLE-MAN TOYS Our wooden toys are created for the safety and education of all. We started designing for young children, but soon found that every person in the family was the kid having fun. While having fun, learning skills are very apparent. These wooden toys help develop dexterity, hand/eye coordination, colour, shape, size identification, problem-solving and reasoning skills, plus many others.
