A Brief Word on Puzzles

A brief word on puzzles, just because the theme of the next two days will be TOYS!!!

If I had to do it all over again, I think I would have put fewer "academic" Melissa & Doug puzzles (ABC, 123, colors) on my baby registry and instead asked for more of the "chunky" piece puzzles. Yes, the knob puzzles are supposed to be good for developing pincer-grasp, but as we age up, I realize that the chunky pieces of the various puzzles could have been harvested for stand-alone play toys. Big fat wooden dinosaurs, farm animals, shapes, butterflies, etc., are always of the good, even after the fun of the puzzle itself has dissipated.

In other news, Merry Holidays everyone. XOXO, ~j
