We have many different kinds of puzzles – everything from puzzle to magnetic puzzles, puzzles that are easy to take along on the trip, puzzles covering a large area on the floor, 3-D puzzles, puzzle mats, etc.!
We have chosen to take the puzzle from different manufacturers -because everyone has different advantages, focus and themes.
But how do you choose when the right puzzle?
The best puzzle is that everyone can benefit from them – from 18 months up to 100+ years!
As soon as the child can recognize the shape and color, it can start with simple puzzles. Since the puzzles can vary so much in severity, adults may also find it fun puzzles! All puzzles of Bridgat have a clear recommendation on the appropriate age.
2) THE NUMBER OF BITS
It is common to look at the number of bits when choosing a puzzle, it is a good indication of the puzzle difficulty. Puzzle with fewer, larger pieces are suitable for children from about 18 months to 3 years. As the concentration and fine motor skills developed fit puzzle with more individual ingredients maybe 30-60 pieces for 4-5 year olds, 60-200 for 6-8 year olds, and up to 2000 pieces of puzzle-crazy teens and adults!
It is not just the number of bits determines if a puzzle is difficult or easy to add. It is good to also look at the puzzle shape and how the pieces are cut. Some puzzles with very few pieces can be much more difficult than puzzle with hundreds of pieces!
Puzzles that are square may be easier for children (and adults) to add. Then you have an edge to begin with helping puzzle-taker to get an idea of how the other pieces fit. Djeco has a series of “discovery puzzle” that have clear edges in white with different things that you then will find in the puzzle – but the edge also makes it easier for younger children to put the puzzle.
Puzzles for the little ones are usually made of wood because it is more durable for younger children and little hands. We have puzzle 3-48 bits. Wood can also be a good choice for the puzzle to be used by several children. Puzzle of the foam is a popular option for puzzle with larger pieces.
When the number of bits increases, the most common materalet cardboard. It would of course have thick pieces with a surface that is easy to keep clean. Djecos puzzles, for example, is coated on both the front and back, Melissa & Doug cardboard puzzle has a durable finish on the front.
Echo is also popular when selecting puzzle. MudPuppy, Ceaco, GeoPussel and eeBoo manufactures its cardboard puzzle of recycled materials.
5) THE SUBJECT
It’s fun to have a subject that the child thinks is fun – when they want to feel free to complete the puzzle! Some subjects may be more educational – GeoPussel have geographical puzzle with pieces shaped like different countries. Djeco are puzzles with animal, dinosaurie- and historical themes where the books with more information and facts supplied.
Is the puzzle conceived as something for the whole family or more people to work at the same time, it is best to choose a subject that makes some parts may be a little easier for younger children.
Younger children may find it is more fun if the puzzle is really big – a floor puzzle is a challenge for the whole body and not just the fine motor skills!
A 1000-bit puzzle take much space on the table and will take longer to add, so then it might be good if you have a special table to piece on. The dinner table malfunctioning …
Other puzzles suitable for small areas, even on trains or aircraft. MudPuppy has a series of simple puzzles that are intended to take on the trip.
It’s not fun to miss pieces to a puzzle! Should puzzle added again and again, it is good if it can be kept in a good way. Fine, durable boxes comes with most puzzles, many very decorative. Some wooden puzzle comes in its own wooden box, others come with a tile puzzle can be put on and kept.
