Re: At what age can children do this type of puzzle?

Between 18mo and 2 yrs? Poppy is 26mo and she LOVES puzzles so she does them frequently and she could do a puzzle like that on the first try w/ no trouble.

Depends on the kid. DS1 maybe 18 months, but DD would need help still at 2.

Re: At what age can children do this type of puzzle?

I'm in my 40s, and I still have a hard time with those.

The wooden ones are much harder than jigsaw puzzles.

Re: At what age can children do this type of puzzle?

I'm not sure if escapethevillage is serious, but I also find the flowing line puzzles harder than traditional jigsaw puzzles. It is harder for me to visualize the picture. Of course, I get it quicker than my child does, but I have to really pause and think first.

My daughter has trouble doing the smooth edge ones too - but with a bit of experimenting she gets it - though she tends to give up with them much sooner than jigsaw puzzles. She was good at the 9 piece jigsaw ones at 2, and in two months or so became "fluent" in 24 pieces. She is now at 3 okay with 48 piece puzzles but needs some help. The 100 piece one is really too much for her right now.

No..I'm not really serious. But, they are harder than a jigsaw puzzle. Try leaving a whole shelf of those out and having some kid dump all of them. That's a whole evening project.

LOL ok, yes gotchya.

My kids have a "puzzle book" with like 10 different puzzles in it.

Try explaining to a 4 y/o how to open it without it dumping all the pieces out of EVERY SINGLE PAGE

I have spent hours putting that stupid thing back in order. It now lives up on the highest shelf of the bookshelf.

totally depends on the child. I have had 2 kids be able to do that type at around 15-18 months by themselves and quickly move on to 30 piece puzzles before age 2..my other 2 kidos did that type by 2 1/2

We "had" one of those dastardly puzzle books....then one day it mysteriously disappeared.

Re: At what age can children do this type of puzzle?

DS could do those kinds of puzzles sometime between 18 months and 2, but now at 3.5 he is doing 100 piece puzzles, so I think it probably depends a lot on the kid.
