OT Approved Toy | Wooden Knob Puzzle

Puzzles with wooden knobs make great first puzzles for babies. The knobs are easy for little hands to grasp and the shapes are often larger than other puzzles, making it easier to place the puzzle pieces in the puzzle. I personally love Melissa and Doug products, although I've noticed the Amazon reviews have been going down a bit (quality issues maybe?). With that said, I have this geometric puzzle from Melissa and Doug, and I love it! I love that it works on basic colors and shapes, in addition to developing fine motor skills!

Best for ages: 12 - 24 months

Skills addressed: 

  • fine motor
  • grasping
  • hand eye coordination
  • visual perceptual
  • matching


Where to buy:

Michaels carries Melissa and Doug products and they frequently have 40% off coupons available on their website! Michaels in-store selection can be better than their online, but it really varies by location. You can also find a wide selection of knob puzzles on Amazon.

For older kids interested in puzzles, smaller peg puzzles are great for 2-3 year old kids developing a pincer grasp, and these 12-piece puzzles are great for preschoolers!
