Wooden Peg Puzzles

1. GREAT GIZMOS 4 PIN WOODEN PUZZLES

Puzzles are essential in the development of any child and help with both hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. They are also incredibly fun and keep little ones entertained for hours as they attempt to place the shapes in the corresponding holes. These 4-Pin Wooden Puzzles by Great Gizmos include transport, farm, and pet puzzles that promote abstract thinking and shape differentiating.

2. DALMATIAN RIDE ON TOY

As children learn to walk, they will become much more interested in getting around the house and discovering their surroundings. This Dalmatian Ride-on Toy by Great Gizmos offers kids aged 1 to 3 a great way to get around. The solid wooden ride-on has a comfortable seat and strong wheels, making it robust enough to handle the inevitable bumps and scrapes.

3. GALT ALPHABET PUZZLES

By the age of three children are rapidly progressing in their development and will be confident using both hands to sort shapes. They will also be able to recognise letters and identify animals and objects, which make these Alphabet Puzzles by Galt a great toy to educate and stimulate. These colour puzzles encourage letter recognition and matching skills and are designed so that only the correct pieces fit together.

4. GALT 6 POSTER PAINTS

Once children are confident in using crayons to draw and colour, it’s time to let them express their creativity further by introducing paint. Like drawing, painting is an excellent activity for developing fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination and lets kids really explore their imagination. This six-pack of Poster Paints by Galt can be diluted or used directly from the box and – don’t worry – they’re washable!
