Puzzles are great for developing early cognitive and problem solving skills, as well as fine motor skills and coordination. Although solving puzzles can feel like second nature to adults, for young children there's a surprising amount of thought and effort involved; it's a bit like learning to draw or ride a bike. This beautiful 25x25cm 49-piece puzzle by French toy maker Vilac features Noddy, created by Enid Blyton, who's become one of the world's most beloved and recognisable characters. This puzzle is generally suitable for ages 4 and up, though skilled younger children may be able to give it a go. It packs away in its own 29x18x6cm case.
