Expert Commentary

“Puzzles can help your child build problem-solving skills and develop hand-eye coordination,” Emily Lehman, a licensed teacher, says. “These basic puzzles may seem easy for an adult. However, for those under 3, these puzzles can provide a lot of learning and growth. Be careful with any child who has a tendency to chew on or eat puzzle pieces due to choking hazards; supervision is key.”
