What Are the Best Wooden Puzzles for Young Babies?

The best wooden puzzle is the one that is the most ability appropriate (or age appropriate) for your child, which will engage them and make them want to play more. Learning through playing is one of the most effective ways to develop an understanding of the world around you. For younger children, start with big large puzzles which should be easier for them to play and put together. As they grow up, you can start gradually reducing the size of the pieces, while increasing the complexity of the puzzles. Our best wooden puzzles for young babies would be, in no particular order:

  • Shape Sorters
  • Baby Sensory Toys
  • Stacking Toys

Repetitive play and engaging with your children, taking time to show them the puzzle and how it works, then letting them learn their own problem solving skills to solve it is the best play experience for a young toddler. The more they play, the more their hand-eye coordination is developed. The more their fine motor skills, puzzle solving and memory skills are enhanced. It's amazing to see how happy they are when they solve a puzzle; it's priceless to see how much joy they get out of solving these kinds of problems. It is important to be patient when looking for the perfect puzzle for your child because most puzzles are educational in nature. We've worked with lots of local schools, nurseries and care givers to make sure that we have a wide range of puzzles to help people of all ages in our shop. Here is our list of our top 3!

Shape Sorters

A shape sorter is an excellent way to learn about the world around you. The toy can be played with endlessly by children, as it has many shapes and colors that they can identify. The toy will help them learn the basics of mathematics and science. If you want to build your child's knowledge of the world around them, consider using the toy as a method of solving problems. The best shape-sorting games are those that can be put together in a few minutes; they're not complicated, but they're easy enough for a child to master. Learning patience is one of the most important things when you're teaching a child to play a game; it's going to help him or her learn the skills necessary to excel in the future. When you show your child how to count the pieces of a puzzle, he or she'll become a great number-cruncher.

Baby Sensory Toys

These toys can be used to teach your child how to recognize sounds, touch, smell, taste, touch, and other things that are important. You can tell that your child will be able to identify the colors of the toys by how they're finished; they're going to be able to identify them by how they feel when they're touched. You can also find some fun toys that can be used to teach children how to recognize sounds or shapes. Your children will be very happy when they get some new toys for Christmas, because they're all made out of quality materials, such as wood, which is also an excellent choice for children because it is so easy to clean up after them, and it also helps them feel more connected to nature.

Stacking Toys

Stacking toys have been around since.. well who knows but probably thousands of years as young children love to stack items on top of each other. Stacking toys provide children with wonderful fun play experiences which teach them lots of skills including concentration, fine motor, memory, problem-solving and simple logic. These are perfect to teach them basic maths and counting, shape recognition and even colour sorting. A great first wooden puzzle for young children!
