Floor Puzzles Work The Brain In Multiple Ways

Floor Puzzles help stimulate brain activity by working on problem solving, coordination and imagination. Most floor puzzles are recommended for children ages 3 and up and help with hand eye coordination and fine motor skills.

The circle floor puzzle is a simple circle shape that has eight boldly colored pieces and is 11 inches in diameter. This puzzle is intended to increase the child's connection and association with the space around him or her. This particular floor puzzle is even sold at the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., so you know it has to not only be useful, but beautiful as well!


There are floor puzzles geared towards boys and girls both individually and together. Brothers and sisters can both work on the ABC floor puzzle, the Solar System floor puzzle or the Under the Sea floor puzzle. Girls may prefer playing with the Fairy Tale Castle floor puzzle. For the boys there is a Construction floor puzzle.

Floor puzzles also make great individual activities as well for older children. Children get a great sense of accomplishment from completing a floor puzzle. Working on a floor puzzle can also encourage the early desire to complete tasks.

Melissa & Doug floor puzzles are 20% thicker than the cardboard used in competitors puzzles. The floor puzzles are also thickly coated to ensure easy cleanup.The extra thickness means that your child will enjoy the puzzle for years to come.
