You may be wondering how kid puzzles can help your child's learning and improve skills. The truth is puzzles are some of the best educational toys for any mind.
To mention a few advantages: Puzzles develop hand and eye coordination and challenge children to finish what they start. They can actually see the final product. And each piece of a jigsaw puzzle is shaped differently and cut on various angles to keep the challenge and stimulation.
The truth is... kid puzzles are THE toys almost all parents acknowledge as being truly educational. Few parents doubt the educational value of puzzles.
I've seen that manufacturers are often over-optimistic about the number of puzzle pieces any age group should build. However, I agree that some children can build puzzles with more pieces than what you would normally expect at that age.
A rough guide to choosing puzzles with the right number of pieces is...
For the young ones they come with knobs for easy handling. And to teach shapes and forms... fit-in puzzles are often recommended.
One aspect I really like about kid puzzles - they're light-weight. So shipping cost is low... which means shopping and ordering online becomes that much cheaper.
As you probably already know, one of the greatest aspects about shopping online is that you can do so at your own convenience, in the comfort of your own home. To make this experience even better, most leading online kid puzzles stores are designed to make searching easy.
Select from the many categories the stores already have listed, or type in your own keyword search.
The puzzle products that are displayed, often shows you the picture of the puzzle, the title, price, puzzle size (ex. 100 pieces), puzzle dimension (ex. 350 x 250mm), the manufacturer (ex. Falcon, Ravensburger) and finally the puzzle description. The description often informs you of the recommended age group for the puzzle (ex. 100 piece puzzle suitable for ages 6+) .
