These are just awesome toys for the little ones as the promote hand and eye co-ordination, colour recognition and help them to start recognising shapes and animals. Originally selling for £7.00 at Debenhams they’re now down to only £3.15.
I can’t recommend these enough. I got a couple in when my daughter was about 18 months old and we spent many happy hours putting them together. The expression of delight on their faces when they first start seeing how puzzles work is just magic.
My daughter also loved it when she first managed to finish a puzzle without any help from me. I think I’ve about twenty photographs of the occasion too. I also used them as a way of teaching her the names of animals and matching them to letters of the alphabet.
Of course one of the biggest advantages is that you don’t have hundreds of tiny pieces to pick up. Oh, and when your kids eat the pieces instead of slotting them, you know that they were designed to endure such hardships.
