My daughter is very fond of puzzles, and this fondness started when she was nearly 6 months! She started with simple stacking puzzles, and then progressed to Melissa Dogh knobbed puzzles relating to shapes, animals, etc. And, now that she is 3, she has switched to more complex silhouettes puzzles of real world objects that see can relate to, as well as floor puzzles where she needs to use the critical thinking skill to solve the entire puzzle.
More than everything, she loves the puzzle apps that we download from Apple Store, every now and then. I find these app to be more economical way to let her learn and master the basic skills, rather than spending hundred of dollars in buying wooden puzzles which she solves and looses interest soon. At present, her favourite Puzzle app is Puzzingo.
