Kids puzzle (KidsPuzzle).


Description: PC version of the classic puzzle game: Try to place the image pieces in the correct order to get a given picture. The application is intended for young kids; thus the number of puzzle pieces is kept small (between 12 and 60). 10 puzzle pictures included (here again: children motifs): Easter, Hippo, Aquarium, Santa Claus, Dinosaur, Disney princesses, Mickey Mouse, Little Red Riding Hood, Clown, Pokemon.
At the start of the game, the puzzle pieces are at random positions. Try to recreate the picture with pieces ordered correctly, by moving them to the position, where you think, they fit. To select the piece to be moved, click it. Then click the position, where you want to place it (the piece at this position being moved to the position, where it was before).
