This nautical puzzle is great for helping kids learn to identify the different things that live in the ocean. With 26 pieces, it can be a great activity for big and little kids! Be careful though, this puzzle is over 10 feet long when completed, so make sure you have the floor space!

This is a massive underwater puzzle. With over 100 pieces, this puzzle is great for older kids to explore with! This puzzle shows creatures that live just under the surface, to the very depths of the ocean. Beware of what lives in the deep!
