Puzzles are great for helping young brains develop and grow...that's why we made a lot of them!
Solving puzzles by pattern matching is the foundation of reading, math and logic skills so when your kids solve a puzzle, they are doing one of the best brain building exercises for those skills.
With 50+ puzzles your kids will have an opportunity to learn and play at the same time without getting bored of solving the same puzzle over and over again.
Our three groups of puzzles allow kids of all ages to start simple and progress to a more difficult group as they get better. Having 50+ puzzles also means they won't get bored and abandon this valuable activity altogether, instead they'll move to more challenging tasks and further develop their skills…and all the while having fun!
Three groups of puzzles include:
- Sliced puzzles
- Drag n Drop puzzles
- Classic Jigsaw
Drag 'n Drop puzzles: Distinct pieces and shapes allow for quick pattern matching and easy solving. Familiar images and scenes make for a fun but rewarding experience.
Sliced Puzzles: Big pieces and small quantities let your kids dive right into solving more complex puzzles. Cute characters hold their attention as they progress from one to the next.
Classic Jigsaw puzzles: A new feel to an old classic. Each of these puzzles have 20 pieces and provide a greater challenge. Pattern matching skills are really put to use here as pieces will often look similar in shape to one another. Kids will really have to engage their problem solving skills to successfully solve these puzzles.
Ratings and Reviews
The puzzles are very entertaining and educational for children ages 2-9. They can also be used for very elderly people who are fascinated by the I-Pad and these puzzles give them some idea of what these new gadgets are about. I have used them with several of our residents who have dementia or even Alzheimers patients. They are fascinated to realize they have learned o do something new and can do them with grandchildren . They are simple if they are just used for matching but they can also be used to learn to follow directions for finding the pictures. e.g. "Look in the North East Corner, Look in the South West corner. Now look in the North West Corner or in the South East corner. Other directional words can be used as well--up and down, left and right, top and bottom etc. For numbers they can learn to count 1-10 or finding objects learning by saying the colors to look for. There are so many different ways of using many of these puzzles.
I teach kindergarten and pre-k. I bring my iPad to school for the children's use. They love the puzzles, especially the younger ones. They are wonderful for eye/hand coordination and manual dexterity. Believe it or not, they help with reading skills. My children are able to sound out words at a younger age.
My 2 1/2 grandson can do these puzzles by himself, but wishes there were more with increasing level of detail. Thanks.
I am trying to submit this review, but the program won't accept it. Please fix or let me know what I'm doing wrong.
