Are you looking for your child's first wooden puzzle? Not sure where to start or what is good? Are you overwhelmed by the wide variety of options? Here at BabaMe we have lots of different brands of jigsaw puzzles, games, and wooden toys for kids. To help with your selection we have narrowed it down for you with the best wooden puzzle brands below.

A few factors that contribute to picking the best puzzle to work on, that Baba Mes best selling brands may have are:

  • 1. Quality: The best quality puzzle is one that has good edges and is made of strong, durable materials.. This is particularly important in children's puzzles, as they need to be super sturdy and able to withstand rough and tumble play! The younger the child the puzzle is aimed at, the thicker and sturdier the pieces should be. The pieces should be perfectly sized for young children to be able to grasp and slot together.

  • 2. The images: The image or artwork is the first thing that a child notices. Are the images attractive? Clear? Does the artwork appeal to children? Childrens puzzles should be bright, enjoyable, catch the eye and educational. However, this doesn't mean that they should be childish.

  • 3. Ability Level: Does the puzzle match the age/ability level on the packaging. If the puzzle is too easy, children will bore of it. Also if it is too hard, they will become frustrated and this is not a good educational experience. Always match the ability level to your child.
