I will be at the Big E (in the Connecticut Building) from September 18th through the 26th and then on vacation from October 2nd until the 16th and unable to process new orders. Ready to ship items will ship in mid-October when I return and custom ordered items will be processed and created in the order that they were received starting in mid-October. Your custom order is not confirmed or guaranteed for Christmas delivery until I return your inquiry with pricing and an approximate turnaround time. It is possible that orders placed after September 26th will not be available for guaranteed Christmas delivery but I will make every effort to help.


Puzzles are a great way to create a fun learning opportunity for kids.

Simple jigsaw puzzles help children develop finger strength, perseverance and problem-solving skills.

Ask your child to turn, flip, slide and wriggle pieces into position. Picking up, moving and twisting the pieces of a puzzle helps children to develop finger strength and hand-eye coordination. As your child picks up and positions pieces, they also develop small-muscle control in their fingers.

Playing with these puzzles encourages children to look at pictures more carefully, going over them from top to bottom and from left to right. Through doing this, children may begin to notice visual similarities and differences.

Puzzles develop memory skills, as well as an ability to plan, test ideas and solve problems. While completing a puzzle, children need to remember shapes, colors, positions and strategies to complete them.

The experience of completing a puzzle can also help your child to learn to accept challenges, overcome problems and deal with frustrations.
