Begin Again Dinosaur Skeleton Puzzle
(Begin again $20 Score:)

Such a clever two-sided wooden T-Rex puzzle! An eleven-piece dino fits into the puzzle box along with eight background pieces. On one side the T-rex's bones are shown; on the reverse the bones go under cover. It's tricky, but we even got the dino to stand up after it was all put together. Marked 3 & up, we think this will work better for kids who are a bit older.

(eeBoo $8 Score:)

One of four nine-piece puzzles with delightful illustrations by Kevin Hawkes.

Build a Bug Sorter
(Hape $19.99 Score:)


There are four bugs on this wooden board and eight puzzle pieces. The trick here is for tots to begin to see fine differences. Here the playing pieces fit over pegs only each bug has a different number of pegs. So this is a puzzle that calls for looking at finer details and seeing the difference between one, two, three and four pegs. 2 & up

SNAP: matching up the puzzle pieces to the on, two, three and four pegs calls for looking at details. Before you play, put some of the puzzle pieces away. Start with just one set and talk about where the pieces will fit. Add another set and put them on the post. Next mix up the pieces for two posts and work on sorting them. By going slowly, you are giving strategies for how to proceed with still more pieces.

Jumbo Forest Friends Puzzle
(Mudpuppy Press $14.95 Score:)

It's autumn in the forest and the animals are all out under the colorful trees. This jumbo floor puzzle has 25 big pieces that beginners can handle. When put together it is a big 22 by 22 inch square. Also fun, their Jumbo Pirate Puzzle, though this one is older in look and subject. They say 2 & up; we think twos are not ready for this many pieces. It will be enjoyed by  older 3-4's more.

2014 Award
Ravensburger Disney Planes Puzzles
(Ravensburger $14.99 Score:)

Kids can put together images of four different planes with these four shaped puzzles. They range from simple 10-pieces to a 16-piece one. Introduce them one puzzle at a time so all the pieces do not get mixed together. These are real jigsaw puzzle pieces that call for more dexterity and visual discrimination than typical preschool puzzles, though the pieces are larger than they are pictured on the box graphic. That said, this is a challenging set. You'll want to show them how to sort the colors into four different piles and then work on one puzzle at a time when they first start. Like all puzzles for younger kids, this will be probably be put together a number of times, since kids like to redo their puzzles, getting confidence as they do them with greater ease and mastery. This set comes in a sturdy storage box for safe keeping between uses. Marked for 3 & up, we think this may be a better choice for experienced puzzle builders of four and five.
