    Why Are Puzzles The Best Playtime Toy For Growing Kids?

    At Alex and Moo, we're passionate about providing children with toys and products that will help them learn and grow, which is why we believe puzzles are amongst the best playtime toys for children.

    ​​As children grow, it's important that they engage in activities that stimulate their minds and develop their problem-solving skills. Puzzles offer a unique creative challenge for kids — they must think critically and use spatial reasoning as they work to fit all the pieces together. 

    Puzzles also provide an opportunity for children to practice patience and perseverance as they continue searching for missing pieces or try different configurations. 

    Plus, with such a wide variety of puzzles available from Alex and Moo, there is something to interest every child — from simple shape sorting for younger kids to complex jigsaw puzzles for older children. 

    So next time you're looking for a fun playtime activity for your growing kid, consider reaching for a puzzle instead of traditional toys. You and your child won't be disappointed!

    What Are The Best Puzzles For 2-Year-Olds?

    When it comes to puzzles for 2-year-olds, size and simplicity are key. Look for puzzles with larger pieces that are easy for little hands to grasp and manipulate. Chunky wooden puzzle sets with just a few pieces or large knobbed puzzles are great choices.

    It's also important to consider the puzzle design — opt for bright, colourful images that will capture your child's attention and hold their interest. 

    The Djeco AnimaBasic Wooden Puzzle, for example, is simple, visually engaging and perfect for 2-year-olds, particularly those that love animals.

    The Tender Leaf Toys — Colour Me Happy Wooden Worm Puzzle is another excellent option for 2-year-olds, teaching both shapes and colours to young minds while also building fine motor skills. 

    What Are The Best Puzzles For 3-Year-Olds?

    By the time your child is 3 years old, you might want to invest in puzzles that have an added educational element to them.

    Take the Bigjigs Inset Wooden Puzzle — Lowercase Alphabet, for example. This puzzle makes learning about letters and words easy while helping to develop dexterity, matching skills, and concentration.

    At 3, your little one has probably started to develop certain passions and interests — like animals! The Sassi Book + Giant Puzzle — Jungle Animals is perfect for kids who are fascinated by all things animals. The 30 giant-piece puzzle and complimentary 10-page hardback book feature lions, zebras, snakes and more in a colourful and inviting setting.
