If you have toddlers at home, who are just learning to string sentences together, then the Funskool Alphabet Train floor puzzle would be a wonderful educational tool for them. Learning the alphabet, with the help of the three metre long illustrated train featured on this Alphabet Train puzzle, becomes a more fun exercise. The 56 puzzle pieces are large enough for your child to identify the design elements they contain but small enough for little hands to hold. They are also self-correcting, which means it doesn't take too much effort for them to slip into place.
The puzzle tests and develops you toddler's cognitive abilities, helping them differentiate between the various letters of the alphabet. This educational game for kids also improves their spatial intelligence, as they have to match a particular protruding element of a piece's design with its corresponding cut-out in another piece. Playing with puzzles also involves a process of trial and error, which helps your child develop better hand eye coordination. The best part about the Alphabet Train floor puzzle is that once all the pieces are in place, you can use an adhesive to turn this into an educational mat for your child's room.
The Melissa and Doug 28-piece Alphabet Train Floor Puzzle (£7.99) is a beautiful piece of art, in a way. The puzzle pieces are two train parts and then 26 cargo carriages with animals on each carriage. The pieces are really large – about an adult hand size each – making them ideal for little ones. The pieces are made from extra-thick cardboard so they’re sturdier than most and they have an easy-clean surface to make them easy to wipe down and keep looking good.
