Puzzles are a Lot of Fun

The first puzzle introduced to me as a young child comprised a little piece of paper stuck to each thumb on someone's hands. They recited the words. " here is peter and here is paul . . ." Well you probably know the rest. Not that I remember how old I was but it was never forgotten.

There were no commercial puzzles for kids in those days in the quanityt and style of today and we often made up many ourselves. We were led to do wire puzzles and to undo and replace things in boxes that completed the task when done correctly. Today there are literally thousands of all types of puzzles and a special market in them for babies that can start off with simple little jig saws made of wood. This helps them discover objects, shapes, colours and soon. So puzzles have always been educational and great cognitive developers
