You Name It Toys

When it comes to children I love puzzles and books. I want to surround my child with things that help him learn and grow.  Puzzles are a great way to do that.  Their are so many benefits to letting your children learn to manipulate a puzzle.

Here are some of the skills puzzles help your child with :

1. Hand Eye Coordination - As a child puts each piece into the puzzle they are manipulating it to get it to fit and working on hand eye coordination
2. Fine Motor Skills- Puzzles teach children to pick up and grasp as they are fitting pieces together.
3.  Cognitive Skills- Problem solving and reasoning skills, giving them a variety of themed puzzles teaches many different topics.

Puzzles are a type of mind teaser and with each completed puzzle a child's confidence will grow.  It's so fun to watch the excitement spread across your child's face when they've accomplished something new.

I recently received the step stool puzzle for review.

  • the fact that the puzzle slides out easily for a change
  • the brightness of the colors
  • the sturdiness of the stool itself
  • how well made it seems to be
  • that it was made in the USA
