Buying toys for your children is not as easy as it first may seem. Your choice can have a significant impact on their development as well as how they view the world around them.
By opting to purchase eco-friendly educational products — like wooden puzzles — you will teach them about the impact of their choices on the environment and other people while also improving their cognitive and fine motor skills.
Alex and Moo is proud to stock a comprehensive range of sustainable toys and clothing for babies and toddlers, including quality children’s puzzles. Puzzles are amongst the best toys for growing hands and minds, teaching problem-solving and dexterity whilst being a super-fun way to spend the afternoon.

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.

Doll is as described, her hair covers the implant a bit much but that is a design thing & I can cut it so that my cochlear implant wearing 2 year old can see that her doll wears a processor too - and doesn’t take it off! Thank you for making these available.
These plates are fantastic! We use them all the time - for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The colours are gorgeous and fun. The quality is high - easy to clean in the dishwasher too.
We love these little soft dolls which we all call "sisters"
Well made and so soft - really beautiful
These are delightful soft dolls (which we have called sisters) and to have the Organic Cotton Doll Carrier adds so much to my granddaughter's (and my) play each weekend. We love them!
I would like to say what wonderful service I received from Alex and Moo and am very happy to have dealt with your company. So far I haven’t seen the erected bike but look forward to seeing my little one enjoying her birthday present.
Products are great and delivery was really quick.
Love these wooden toys, previously bought the ice cream cart and it is still a favourite toy
My two grand children love these cups for their morning smoothies when they come to visit Nanny
Very happy will be ordering more
Interesting and activities useful for curious children
With the original 6 pack, there were two cups slightly smaller and made different around the rims. My daughter in law noticed this. I did send a message but no reply as to why this was being in a set of 6. In addition I brought an extra 2 cups to match the 8 plates I akk K do brought. I’m very happy with these products but really thought someone could have acknowledged my original question as to why 2 cups in a sold set of 6, were obviously made different.
Great quality. Will purchase more again soon
Awesome little dummy's, great quality and a much cuter natural rubber option than the little orange ones you can get. The colours and cute little shapes cut out around the mouth piece are just adorable and suit every outfit. Not to mention bub loves them, the Orthodontic Teat is slightly more exaggerated than a normal one which I think is making it easier for bub to keep in her mouth without dropping. Overall 5 stars - can't beat 0% toxins with 100% cuteness.
Couldn’t be more happy. Free delivery and quick. Trike arrived on time. The crate was a great addition and so was the personalised name plate.
This was for my grandsons 1st birthday and he absolutely loves it! He’s not a big kid and I was a bit concerned it may be too big for a while but it’s perfect. He can get on and off of it with ease and was so proud of himself in front of his little friends. Would happily recommend this for any small child. Love the fact the shipping was free and quick so it arrived in plenty of time.
