Teaching your kids about vehicles is not always the first thing we think about when we want to buy them educational puzzles. But kids have always been curious about them.

Each shape comes in different colours and has a printed on an animal on top with a speech bubble that spells out the name of the shapes. So you are not just teaching your kids about the shapes, but you can also discuss the colours they come in, the animals printed on top, and the spelling of each of the shape’s names. Additionally, it promotes motor skills as they place each shape on the peg.

Other than being able to teach your kids the alphabet, the Alphabet Wooden Stand Up Puzzle by Hape allows you teach kids with spelling.
