Though Cutting Meat by Angeli Patel may at first appear like a wooden puzzle game for children, it also doubles as a learning tool for adults.
Each pegged piece outlines a part of the animal's body that is used to create slabs of meat from the illustrated animals. Once the pieces are lifted, there are also interesting little facts that advocate vegetarianism -- something most adults would not expect seeing in a children's game. Heart-wrenching facts like, how many baby chickens are killed because of their inability to lay eggs, or the amount of cows slaughtered each year mark the wood in black lettering.
The Cutting Meat puzzles are meant to prompt adults to rethink their meat consumption. The cute animal puzzles along with the facts are able to get even the fiercest meat eater to rethink what they eat.
