Maria Montessori created materials that focus on one skill at a time. This allows your child to focus on one learning aspect. This prevents your child to be distracted and potentially overwhelmed by the material or activity.
Those puzzles are for young toddlers after they have mastered peg puzzles. They are an introduction to jigsaw puzzles with a picture cut into parts.
Those puzzles are simple on purpose. We took weeks to design our puzzle pieces so they have the right amount of "snap". They are neither too easy nor too hard to slot for a toddler's little hand.
Young toddlers need to repeat activities. Repetition leads to more concentration. This material will help your child focus on the connecting action without the pressure of representing a picture.
The puzzle pieces are 100% natural. They are made of plain, European beech wood and varnished with raw linseed oil.

Amazing company. Brilliant service as always. Item arrived quickly. Product is beautifully made and the children are going to love it. Will definitely be buying again.
Chuffed to bits with our Christmas tree toy! It’s absolutely beautifully made. High quality finish and adaptable too. I love that it came with a guide on how to use it and it’s variations for different age groups. Thanks so much!
