The puzzle introduces logic, matching, spatial relationships, critical thinking and an understanding of cause and effect. It also promotes dexterity, hand-ey coordination, and general manipulation.
With all natural finishes and solid wood construction, this puzzle is a perfect combination of problem and delight to challenge developing minds.

This peg stacking puzzle helps the developing mind discriminate, order and sequence. These are underlying skills for math, science, reading, writing, problem-solving and more.
Clutching and manipulating pieces requires the use of fine motor skills. Placing a piece on the spindle requires eye-hand coordination. Children discriminate between color, size, and shape. They will sequence pieces. All of this supports the brain's development of problem-solving ability.
This toy is self-correcting meaning children can play on their own, building confidence as they learn to sort, sequence and solve the puzzle.
