It may be hard to believe that your little one, who has just learned to walk, and has yet to master a jump, is ready is work on puzzles, but he is. Match the Buddies puzzles with their uber-thick, extra-large puzzle pieces is a perfect introduction. And the topic, buddies, is one that this age will find fascinating. I appreciate that the designer did not mirror the buddies' images but included slight differences. This variation between similar yet distinctive animals can produce all sorts of fodder for conversation with budding linguists.
Match the Buddies puzzles will help develop your toddler's concentration, motor skills, language skills, and logical thinking. The 12 two-piece puzzles feature extra-large pieces packaged into a sturdy, handy box with a practical toddler-friendly handle.
Begin by handing your baby the matching piece and helping him push it into place. Teach him to discern the correct piece between two or more options. Continue to scaffold and increase the difficulty until he can do all the puzzles with minimal to no assistance.
