Great show...please bring it back!
8 February 2007 | by ronniesmithSee all my reviews

My daughter, who is almost 13, and I were discussing shows that she watched and enjoyed as a toddler today. Puzzle Place was at the top of our favorite list. We both remember fondly watching the series on PBS. We loved it! Each show was a lesson in multi-cultural education and friendship. The series was full of songs, games and crafts from around the world. The format was fun, but not "corny". We had a "Puzzle Place" play-set and a stuffed Sizzle and Nuzzle, providing hours of fun for my daughter and I. Anyone from PBS or other children's programming network, please bring this series back for all to enjoy and to learn the all important children's lessons of sharing and caring for each other.
