Where to buy:Michaels carries Melissa and Doug products and they frequently have 40% off coupons available on their website! That's how I purchased mine! Michaels in-store selection can be better than their online, but it really varies by location. You can also find a wide selection of 12-piece puzzles by Melissa and Doug on Amazon.
For younger kids interested in puzzles, smaller peg puzzles are great for 2-3 year-olds developing a pincer grasp, and larger knob puzzles make a great first puzzle for babies!
