Perfectly darling puzzles for teaching early skills!
Puzzles precise in targeting developmental skills are a rare find. If they are chunky, beautiful, and well-made too - that's even more reason to celebrate. 5 darling selections - Silly Squares, Circle Garden, Swish Fish, Big & Little, Shape Parade.
These first puzzles range from easy, easy, (every piece fits everywhere)... Happy toddlers pick up a piece and put it in whatever space fits their fancy! Your child is guaranteed success with their puzzle attempts.
To the next step up - match the shapes, match the sizes... More advanced puzzles encourage shape discrimination and size relationship awareness.
All circles, all the same size. Fill the garden with patterned posies and smiling blooms.
All squares, all the same size. Lively animal travelers switch bus seats all day long.
Fish all the same shape and size. Fill the tank with fish swimming right and left. (A little more difficult, requires turning of pieces for correct fit.)
Big and Little:
Eight squares, four big & four little. Place the animals and their babies in the right size space. (More difficult, requires size differentation.)
Seven unique shapes. Circle, Square, Rectangle, Triangle, Oval, Heart, Diamond. (Most difficult. Requires greater reasoning ability and fine motor skills.)
For tactile learning, size differentiation, visual recognition, and all kinds of sensory excitement, the Green Start Chunky Wooden Puzzles are a perfect fit.

As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 1 years of age.

I bought this puzzle for my daughter's first birthday. I loved the colors & designs of the flowers. With other puzzles she gets frustrated when the shapes of the puzzle pieces don't fit the way she wants it to. So, I really like the fact that all of the pieces are the same size & shape & they are perfect for her to hold in her hands. She has been getting out & playing with the puzzle on a frequent basis. She also loves to stack up the pieces & rearrange them over and over. The only negative thing I have to say is that the edges of the puzzle pieces are a slightly worn. Overall, I love this puzzle!

I was a little concerned about the price point but I went ahead and ordered it anyway. I was so pleased when the item arrived. It has everything a great toy should have. Bright colors, fun flowers faces, easy pieces to place, great play for baby. Oh and it's own carrying case which keeps the puzzle pieces in place when not in use.
