On the surface, this is a normal wooden puzzle. But wait! Look at the other side! Every piece of these unique puzzles is a free-standing play figure on one side, and a puzzle piece on the other. Plus, when the puzzle is taken apart, the underlying image is the inside or background of the play area. For example, the nativity puzzle is a scene of a stable on the outskirts of Bethlehem. But after the pieces are removed, the image reveals the inside of the manger. So, kids get to assemble the puzzle, and then play with the figures and backdrop!
