Piece together the magical adventure of Camille Saint-Saëns' Carnival of the Animals with this unique musical jigsaw puzzle.

Begin with a musical tray that tells the story of The Carnival of the Animals – from the elephants' double-bass waltz to the gently plinking melody of the aquarium, and from the clacking xylophone of the fossils to the swan's rippling rolled chords.

Using the full puzzle image on the poster as a reference, piece together an enchanting illustration showing two brothers discovering The Carnival of the Animals and joining in the animals' parade. As you slot the shaped pieces into place, press the musical notes to hear the vivid sound of an orchestra playing from Saint-Saëns' original score. Hear the herd of elephants' heavy steps, imagine a school of fish glimmering and gliding and follow the swan's majestic glide through its calm, cello-led melody.

Turn the poster over to find additional details on the story’s happy ending, as well as a brief biography of the composer and how the music connects with the story.
This musical jigsaw puzzle is the perfect gift to introduce children to classical music.
