Natural wooden puzzles, and colourful magnetic toys for fun, creative, and STEM play.
Encouraging creative play in children is important to enhance development in various key skills. Fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, problem-solving skills, colour recognition and pattern making amongst others will all be improved as children play with our gorgeous wooden puzzles. Cognitive development should be nurtured from a very early age, so providing wooden jigsaw puzzles and various brain teasers for kids to solve is important.
As adults, we love Jigsaws, Rubik's cubes, burr puzzles and Kumiki puzzles. Introducing our fantastic range of children's puzzles to your kids will encourage a lifelong love of problem-solving, creation and imaginative play. Your child could be the next Nob Yoshigahara, and could even inspire a future career in puzzle design, mechanics or surgery! Based on the traditional art of mosaics, our beautiful Grimms wooden jigsaw puzzles make great educational toys, and have been designed to create an infinite number of different pictures and patterns. Children will love fitting the different interlocking wooden pieces together to see what shapes they can make, and how the colours flow into each other. Grimm's wooden toys encourage open-ended play and their wonderful colours make them well-loved children's toys. Grimm's (Grimm's Spiel und Holtz Design) wooden toys are handmade from Beech wood, Alder wood, Lime wood, and Maple trees, they are all natural and stained with non-toxic water-based stains. As these toys are created from wood they often have knots and grain that show through the stain, these marks make each piece unique, and only add to the charm. Grimm’s are well known for their wooden rainbow coloured toys, that have been lovingly created to inspire different play ideas by using different shaped wooden blocks and stacking toys. Children will love these wooden puzzles as they not only look gorgeous but the pieces are wonderfully tactile and even smell lovely making these a real multi-sensory toy. The magnetic wood puzzles add an extra element for children to enjoy as they stick, and slide the magnetic blocks around the board. Magnets are great toys for kids who will enjoy sticking them to various surfaces, finding out what they will attach to and what they won't. Small children can begin learning basic science as they watch the different shaped tiles repel each other as well as attract. Magnetic toys are perfect for use whilst travelling with young children as the pieces stay where kids put them and won't get lost. The Inmotion 2 bodies will provide hours of fun and intrigue as children can create people, and animals out of the different shaped magnetic tiles. These could be used in conjunction with another of our magnet sets such as the puzzle rainbow wheel so that kids can create a scene for their characters. Magnet toys come in many shapes and sizes and these puzzles would also work brilliantly if coupled with one of our Tegu magnetic playsets that consist of different magnetic building blocks. The interlocking puzzles that come in a frame, such as the butterfly improve eye-hand coordination whilst providing different elements of play. Children can create their own pictures and patterns but are also challenged to find the solution to fit the pieces back together. These jigsaw puzzles are more like blocks than flat mosaic pieces, therefore, can also be used alongside building toys to create all sorts of towers and environments for children to play with. This form of pretend play and imaginative play is vital for a child’s cognitive development and they will enjoy playing for hours. The Grimm's creative set square comes with puzzle plans so that your child can practice following instructions, and matching the pictures, in order to make the various sculptures they depict. The pieces of this set are also basic cube puzzles so your child's creations don't have to remain 2D.
