Children go through huge developmental changes between the ages of one and three. Their mental development and dexterity grows astronomically during this time so it is important to choose the best wood puzzles for toddlers in order to keep them challenged and entertained. There are many different types of wooden jigsaw puzzles perfect for every stage of toddler development.
I'm a mom who thoroughly believes in challenging my child and I tend to offer toys geared for slightly older children provided there is no safety hazard. In this article you'll find the progression my toddler has gone through with puzzles and my age recommendations as well as some of our favorite puzzles. These have been chosen to encourage her development, keep her challenged yet not overwhelm her.
I hope this guide helps you to choose the perfect wooden puzzle gift for the toddler in your life.
