Jigsaw puzzles are an important educational toy! Children should be encouraged to build jigsaw puzzles at home and at school from a very young age.

Tinkle-pea stocks a selection of quality jigsaw puzzles including the Green Start range for younger children and both Melissa & Doug wooden and cardboard jigsaw puzzles.

Below is a guide to age of child vs number of jigsaw puzzle pieces. Please note that this is just a guide and some children master jigsaw puzzles more quickly while others take longer. Before buying a jigsaw puzzle for a child find out how many pieces they are able to do.

2-piece jigsaw puzzles – toddlers 18 months+
4-piece jigsaw puzzles – toddlers 2+ years
12-piece, 24-piece & 30-piece jigsaw puzzles – children 3+ years
