Our puzzle sets depict traditional scenes from countries in Africa - showcasing the diverse, vibrant and colourful cultures across the continent. These original puzzles are backed by research showing that cultural education fosters creativity and innovation, unlocking vital skills that drive creative industries.
Included in the South Africa box, is a progressive learning offering of 2 puzzles ranging in difficulty from 12 to 24 pieces, aiding the developmental stages of 3-5 year olds. These areas include problem solving, fine motor development as well as key cognitive skills. This means the varying levels included in one box can serve the needs of more than one child both at home and in a learning environment, making this box multi-functional.
With short stories using words from languages local to South Africa to describe what's happening in the image, they are a great learning tool to broaden a child’s understanding of cultural diversity. Why don't you find out what Lehlohonolo & Mpho are up to, and what happens on Shaka's Day in the KwaZulu-Natal Province of South Africa?

Founder of Sheni and Teni Folasayo Williams wants to diversify the children's market, creating fun and educational ways for children from all backgrounds to gain an appreciation of African cultures. Named after her kids, the Sheni and Teni brand was created with the main goal of expanding horizons in the world of play and education through toys.
She always loved jigsaws as a child, and when Sheni approached the age of three, she began to search online for puzzles but could only find brands which did not reflect the beautiful brown skin of her family. She thought she could create a fun, engaging and age-appropriate way of introducing children to African cultures and this was her main driver for designing the products.
Looking forward, Folasayo aims to build on the foundation she has already created, design and develop even more exciting products and create the bridge between play, culture and education.
