Puzzles teach kids fine motor-skills, hand- eye concentration, problem-solving and close observation. I started both my kids as young as 24 months with puzzles and slowly over the years carefully increase the number of pieces. Some of the puzzles here I photographed are our own.

Crocodile Creek 12 Piece Puzzles
Crocodile Creek is one of the best puzzle brands on the market and a favorite in our house. They are high in quality, available in different sizes for kids 3 years and up. The images are imaginative, simple, modern and beautifully illustrated. I love the fact that Crocodile Creek products conform to all appropriate safety standards. I personally love their high quality sturdy boxes which over the years have gone through a lot of wear and tear but still look “pretty” on the shelf. Made in the USA.

Djeco Primo Puzzles
This puzzle box was one of the first puzzles I bought for my older son a few years ago when he turned 2 years old, and my little one is now enjoying them just as much at the same age.
This puzzle box consists of 3,4,5 and 6 piece shaped puzzles. The illustrations are fun and engaging. My kids kept coming back for these puzzles for quite some time now.
