A gorgeous wooden puzzle which makes the perfect first puzzle for young children. Jigsaw puzzles are fantastic to teach spatial awareness, fine motor skills and colour and shape recognition. They help young children learn to recognise objects, and later to discuss and use them for storytelling. Behind each object is a black and white version of the object, allowing children to match up the cut-out shape, without the aid of colour. Children soon learn to manipulate the correct pieces into their slot. The objects all have a chunky wooden handle for young hands to grasp and control the object, helping with dexterity. Made from sustainable wood with non-toxic paints.
