Product Description

This CD contains 25 interactive jigsaw puzzles which can be played on a personal computer or laptop.

These jigsaw puzzles are of South Australia's Outback in the Flinders Ranges and Gammon Ranges. They depict the various aspects of the Outback - a flooded creek bed and brilliant Sturt's Desert Pea wildflowers after welcome rain, an old settler's hut and wagon, mother kangaroo and joey in Wilpena Pound, and a stunning lookout in the Gammon Ranges near Arkaroola. They really bring back memories for people who've travelled or lived in the Outback. Great for armchair travel.

Here's a Review about the jigsaw puzzles. 

"Hi Fran, I think your beautiful digital jigsaw puzzles are fabulous and easy to use. I work in community and have begun using them with a number of clients, including 1 client who has quite advanced Dementia and has never used a computer. We put the disk into his wife’s laptop and asked him to have a look. He immediately pointed to pieces and showed where they should be placed (correctly). He has a past history of years of doing jigsaw puzzles, but no longer able to manage too many pieces. This was a lovely way of being able to reconnect with his jigsaws but also an enjoyable activity to undertake together. I have shared this information and your contact details with some colleagues (who also had a bit of a play) with a very positive response. Well done." Fay, Korumburra, Victoria, Australia
