Simple Shapes Puzzle for Toddlers

Not an original idea; taken from a book god-knows-where. It’s a challenge to little kids because the pieces go in only one way, in order. It’s simply three layers of cut out plywood, a bottom and a hinged lid. The three-year old recipient I gave it to, played with it for days before becoming bored, and I’m no expert (unless Grandmother of nine can be an expert) but I think it’s an excellent teaching tool for learning reasoning skills!

That’s a clever toy, whoever designed it. kudos to you for a good job on the fit and finish. I agree that things like this must help shape early reasoning skills develop.

If I had that when I was three, It would have outlasted all my other toys.
Built tough for sure. Great toy too.

Hi Pete- No, this was for a grandchild. I’m afraid I make many more ‘give-aways’ than items for sale!
