As children grow they need new challenges and puzzles to exercise and stretch their growing mind. Jigsaw puzzles are perfect for this and also make wonderful projects for parents and children to complete together. Working with parents or siblings to complete a jigsaw puzzle helps to enhance communication skills and social skills. We also have an array of family games such as dominoes, tic tac toe and Ludo for you to enjoy.
Adding jigsaws to your collection of wooden toys, games puzzles, and stuffed toys adds a different form of creative play. Kids’ have to work out how to make the end picture. Your children will sit for hours creating each beautiful picture. Jigsaws are a great way to wind down before bedtime providing quiet time whilst still entertaining.
Chunky wooden jigsaw puzzles are early stage educational toys that you can start your kids with. They only have a few wooden jigsaw pieces with chunky knobs that are just right for tiny hands to grasp. These puzzles for younger children help develop spatial awareness, shape matching and fine motor skills. Our first jigsaw puzzles have shaped jigsaw pieces in cute animals and funky vehicles.
From this form of jigsaw, you can look at slightly harder puzzles with more interlocking pieces that have to be fitted together. Try a puzzle such as the 16 piece, Djeco Rocket then as you build up the number of pieces the challenge of the puzzle becomes harder.
The beautiful Djeco puzzles are coloured in bright hues that blend together to create wonderful end images. Some of these are also shaped jigsaw puzzles, meaning some of the puzzle pieces are irregular making it a little more difficult.
We also stock a wide variety of educational jigsaw puzzles that depict the alphabet, numbers, and animals as well as a map puzzle and globe puzzle. These will provide your child with an extra learning tool as they complete each puzzle.
Kids jigsaw puzzles make a perfect birthday gift and high quality colourful wooden jigsaw puzzles make a lovely baby shower or Christening gift.
