Matching is a prereading skill, and Faces Puzzles is a fun introduction to this essential skill. Faces Puzzles contains 8 two-piece cards with faces familiar to your toddler. The fun, brightly illustrated pieces are high-quality, thick cardboard, perfect for chubby little hands. Faces Puzzles are designed to provide just the right level of challenge for your toddler. Begin by offering just two matching pieces. Increase the challenge level by supplying more Faces Puzzles pieces to choose from. The friendly expressions will promote conversational skills with your toddler. Matching the symmetrical pieces trains logical thinking and concentration while promoting fine motor skills, eye-hand coordination, and perseverance. The small, travel-friendly box is perfect for storage or on-the-go fun.
Babies as young as 12-18 months old may be ready to help you assemble these puzzles when you hand them both pieces and assist them in sliding them together. Gradually, over the next year, help them learn to find the matching half and solve this puzzle independently.
As your toddler’s skills develop, we suggest working on a puzzle as part of his daily routine three to five times a week. Choose any of the puzzles in our curriculum, or rotate in your favorite family hand-me-downs
Whose face is it? Match the symmetrical pieces and check! This educational set features eight sturdy puzzles, ideal for developing manual dexterity, visual perception and logical thinking.
Start with 2 or 3 puzzle pairs and add more gradually. Show your child how to combine the pieces to assemble smiley faces. The elements are interchangeable, so non-obvious combinations are also possible. Every match is a success!

Review by One Luckey Wife:
”The puzzles are done in a very simple jigsaw style with one notch for the child to put together. I think this better than the baby puzzles that just have flat sides because then the child actually gets to put something together. They will get a sense of accomplishment and it helps develop much needed skills.”
”Matching is a skill that can be learned through playing with the Faces Puzzles set. With high-quality thick pieces, it’s an introductory game for young children who are just learning how to match things up correctly.”
