This could be due to a wood knot, too shallow/too deep divots, hairs inside the engraving that couldn't be sanded, engraving not centered, letters off focus, etc.

This Moon phase puzzle grows with your child. First, like any other puzzle, it starts aiding with fine motor skills. Put the different moons in their place, work on hand eye coordination and sizes. After that it becomes unique in the way it guides the child through lunar wonder.

Your child's journey will take them through all the different phases of the moon. As they move the moon piece every day, they’ll see it travel around the earth and what it looks like on that day. At this point, your child will see that the moon orbits around the earth and that the orbit is elliptical. Use can use a candle and shadow play to intuitively demonstrate why the moon is the shape it is on any particular night. As your child explores the puzzle more, she/he will learn about: Phases of the moon, elliptical orbits, super moon, micro moon, perigee, apogee, solar eclipse, and lunar eclipse. If you want to aid in this exploration, we’ve included a moon watcher guide that explains all the concepts and how to use the puzzle to demonstrate them.
