Review from customer (Oct 21, 2020)
My friend Jane purchased the Animalloys and Animal Connections games from your booth at the Farmer's Market as a 3rd birthday gift for my daughter. I just wanted to give you some feedback - they are both awesome!
The Animalloys tiles are perfect for use on an easel whiteboard. My daughter really enjoys trying to figure out how to put the animals together but she also thinks it's hilarious to mix up different heads, bodies, and tails and create "new" animals. The animals are also quite interesting - it is neat for her to see new and different animals that she hasn’t seen before.
The small connection tiles are great for learning different animal characteristics. I have to help her with the words since she doesn't read yet, but she can already make various connections between animals and descriptors. I think these are great learning tools and they will grow will her as she learns to read. I also love the little wooden box they came in - it’s so cute!
I have attached a few photos. Thank you for these great products - I'm really glad my friend purchased them!
All the best with your games,

Great pictures and the quality is perfect.
This Seller was great to work with!! I explained the set of cards was for my adult brother who is recovering from a brain injury. I mentioned that he raises sheep on a small farm. The Seller customized a set based on my comments-which he did not have to do! I’ve seen the cards through zoom and they appear to be of great quality. Delivery was as promised.
This is my new favorite puzzle, so much fun to do!! It is clearly handmade, with beautiful colors, and clever cutting, including hints. The five layers added a wonderful level of challenge. It is so much better than I thought it would be. Mark is wonderful at communicating as well, and even offered me a couple of extra choices. I highly recommend this!
Impressed by the availability and good advice of Mr Mark, completely satisfied with the quality of the work and the speed of manufacture & delivery. I bought 3 "Memory Match Card Games", made of wood, for individual games, and with the goal of bringing them together to add to the challenge, it will work very well! I will surely watch for other equally interesting games, for all ages!
