Jigsaw puzzles are “vitamins for the brain”
For a certain period of time, it is necessary for children to put together a pile of very chaotic and clueless pictures into a fixed, beautiful pattern that cannot be mistaken. It is indeed a matter of keen observation and considerable patiencework.
Finding connection points that can be connected in mutually independent pictures is a very good exercise for cultivating your baby’s thinking ability.
Therefore, some people liken the jigsaw puzzle toy to the “vitamin for the brain”.
When choosing a puzzle for your baby, be sure to choose a puzzle with a simple pattern, large pieces, few pieces, and thick texture.
For example, the pattern is a baby animal, a fairy tale character, an animated cartoon, or a familiar means of transportation.
Those puzzles with a large number of blocks and complicated patterns are beyond the scope of the baby’s age, and soon lose interest. Do not buy them.
Choose puzzles for babies of different ages. Babies who are 13-18 months old will be gone. This frees their hands and it is time to start some hand-eye coordination games.
Playing jigsaw puzzles is a very good choice, so that children can learn something while playing.

Children of different ages should choose different jigsaw puzzles, and two-year-olds should choose to place small pictures in suitable puzzles.
Children aged 3-4 can rotate small pieces of the puzzle and insert complex pieces together.
A 3-year-old child is more suitable to play one side of the jigsaw puzzle. The number of puzzle pieces is preferably 5-8.
Children 4 years old can play 12-18 puzzle pieces.
A 5-year-old can play 18-35 puzzles.
School children can play more than 50 puzzles.
The graphical choice of the puzzle should be attractive.
The size of the puzzle should be inversely proportional to the child’s age.
The patterns of the puzzle are mainly food, cars, animals, boys, girls, and scenes.
Children can become familiar with triangles, circles, and squares by playing puzzles.
Also learn a lot about these puzzles.
For example, a racing jigsaw can tell children about various parts of the car, as well as the technical data of the car and the awards.
Architectural puzzles can teach children a lot of architectural knowledge, including architectural styles and architectural history.
