Which toys can give children a real sense of accomplishment? Puzzles do more than entice with their bright colors and interesting shapes. Finding the right place for each piece exercises hand-eye coordination and improves motor skills and develops shape recognition. Children also learn as they work. Look at a math puzzle for example. Put pieces together and your math problem is solved! What better way to familiarize a child with the alphabet or US geography than to let her feel and examine every letter, or each state? Puzzles designed for very young children can teach about animals, motor vehicles, or even the human body. As children grow, their puzzles become more complex, so a dinosaur fan can learn about specific meat-eaters and butterfly lovers can see how species vary by piecing together the big picture.
