Fiddly and time consuming, but can be fun.

Jigsaw puzzles used to be boring. The pictures were limited to little houses in the country, or seascapes, although over the years, what happened is that companies found that the idea of slotting little pieces of cardboard together with popular. What was not popular was the small range of...

“A Puzzling Experience...”

published 06/03/2005

The right puzzle is so much fun to complete

The wrong puzzle leads to boredom or frustration

Of all the presents that get given to my children by well-meaning relatives, the ones that cause the most frustration are puzzles. This is a shame really, because with a little thought puzzles can be a fun and educational way to spend a rainy afternoon. When buying a puzzle for your child you...

Jigsaw puzzles are - in a similar way to books - toys that grow up with you. From the simple wooden jigsaws with pegs on the pieces, through to a thousand piece 3D puzzle for adults, there is really something for everyone in jigsaws. Not only are they a nice hobby and one that is relatively cheap...

Absorbing, teaches valuable skills

Can be too absorbing

***Note*** This opinion, while containing info about how jigsaw puzzles can be great for children, is also about how adults can enjoy jigsaws, and indeed, enjoy doing them with their children as a family activity. When something is broken into hundreds of pieces, it’s very satisfying to...

When my daughter was one, we popped into the nursery where I used to work. They had the jigsaws out and my daughter showed some interest in them. She didn't have a clue on what to do with them but the interest was there. She had received some for her birthday and Christmas so I decided to get...

Don't panic - I realise that this is a family section! This is actually the cry of my 2 1/2 year old daughter after completing her latest jigsaw. She adores them and her progress up the ladder of jigsaw-difficulty is self evident! Why Jigsaws? ------------ The most obvious skill required in...

Can get frustrating, patience is needed

Jigsaw puzzles for children? Surely jigsaw puzzles are great for ‘children’ of all ages from 2 to 92!! I know that I don’t really need to say this but a jigsaw is basically a picture which has been cut up into pieces and the idea is to reassemble it using the photograph of the...

Great fun for all the family

Can be really, really frustrating

~ ~ We’ve always loved jigsaws in the “mad cabbie” household, and usually have a work in progress on our dining room table. I loved jigsaws when I was a kid myself, but kind of grew away from them as I got older, and found more interesting pastimes. (guess!!) But when my own wee...

fun and education in one

Since the age of 2 my daughter has loved to do jigsaw puzzles. Starting with the basic large 4-piece wooden ones progressing through 6, 8, 12, 24, 48+ piece cardboard versions of all sizes and themes. Now at 3 she has the ability and patience to work through much more complex puzzles with the...

Jig saw puzzles are probably the first problem solving a very young child gets to do. The baby level puzzles of perhaps two pieces which lift out of a solid wood, or very deep dense cardboard base with a little lifting handle on them can be bashed about until the baby realises that the piece can...
