Introducing Jigsaws To Toddlers

(Gifted product) If Little was going to choose her absolute favourite TV programme at the moment it would be Peppa Pig. Frequently when we are watching something else she will start demanding “Peppa”. I don’t know what it is about that little pink pig, but she sure holds a lot of appeal to little people. It’s not just the programme either everything becomes more attractive once it has a picture of Peppa or George added. I’ve even managed to persuade a reluctant Little to put socks on thanks to the Peppa characterisation so the Peppa Pig Jigsaw we were sent to review from Ravensburger was always going to be popular with my toddler.

What Makes A Good Jigsaw For Toddlers?

The Ravensburger My First Floor Puzzle range is suitable for aged 2 years up and they make a great introduction to jigsaws because the pieces are thick and easy to put together. The 16 pieces in this puzzle are chunky cardboard so reasonably resilient to toddlers, as long as I stop her chewing them they should keep looking great. When put together the Look and Find Puzzle the image is of Mr Fox’s shop, but the fun doesn’t stop there as the completed jigsaw turns into a look and find puzzle. Around the edge of the image are 14 mini pictures which are all hidden in the main image.

At very nearly 2 Little struggled with assembling the jigsaw due to a combination of not having the dexterity yet and because the detail is quite small, but she enjoys looking for items in the shop. By 3 she could easily put it together. If you are looking for a more simple jigsaw then check out these 2 piece jigsaws from Orchard Toys.

This Peppa Pig jigsaw is a great sturdy first puzzle for toddlers. I love that the Peppa Pig My First Floor Puzzle from Ravensburger is more than just a jigsaw and it has been a lot of fun to review. I’m looking forward to seeing Little’s assembly skills improve over the next year. She is already a pro at taking the pieces apart.
