You can buy this set of 10 number puzzles for £4.99 from http://www.childsplaysussex.co.uk/galt-number-puzzles-3353-0.html . It is available for similar prices from other shops too.

I think at present these puzzles come in a red box that has a carry handle, ours at work does not have this handle.

This set of ten puzzles is suitable for children aged 3 to 5 years old, or those older who have problems with recognising number. These puzzles are made of a thick card and withstands quite a bit of wear, so should last quite a time.

Each individual puzzle is a single number and is a three piece rectangular puzzle. The top piece of the puzzle is the numeral the centre piece which is the largest has a picture that corresponds to the number so for example on number 1 there’s is 1 spaceship, on number 5 there are 5 hats . The bottom third piece of the puzzle has the written number.

These puzzle pieces are linked with male and female parts so your child does need some dexterity to put them together. I have seen other puzzles link with just wavy joining edges which are simpler. However a 3 /4 year old with normal dexteroty should be able to link the puzzle pieces.

These puzzles are good another way of practising those numbers. Sit with your child let them do the puzzle say the right number for them to copy you point to the numeral and the number word then count the number of items in the picture.
Doing puzzles helps your Childs motor skills and concentration these should not be too demanding as each one is only 3 piece. There is no need to do all the puzzles in this set at the same time.

This puzzle is suitable for preschool or home.

I've used several different Galt activity packs over the years both professionally with work and personally with my own children, and always thought they well made and thought out...good review. x
