Who would love this: Parents looking for light-weight and portable learning puzzle for young kids
Remember the classic Montessori knobbed cylinders and the fun little game of “sensing” our way around numerous wooden cylinders of varied measurements in diameters, heights, weights, and sizes? This “Narrow-Wide Knob Puzzle” by Qtoys is a reinvented version of the Montessori learning tool, and we are absolutely loving it!
Why I love ❤️ this toy:
(1) Narrow To Wide - I love how QToys modified the traditional knobbed cylinders, and made it into a flat, light-weight, and easily portable (5x15x28cm) puzzle with 6 removable pieces, ranging from the “narrow”, in-between and medium, to the “wide”. I love how chunky the pieces are. The round button-styled knobs are perfect for training up the pincer grasp skill of young kids. My two-year-old enjoys sorting and matching the pieces to fit into their corresponding slots. I love that the simple puzzle encourages “self-correcting”; kids get to figure out the correct positions through multiple trials and errors, logical thinking, and process of elimination. This is a beautiful toy for young age to learn about the concept of narrow and wide, distinguish varying sizes, polish up their visual discrimination and hand-eye coordination. I love that this is a “solvable” puzzle, not too difficult, but with a hint of challenge for toddlers.
(2) Colours - I love that the colour of the puzzle pieces changes progressively, from a darker shade to a lighter grade. I like the very calming and gender-neutral lawn green colour of varying gradient.
(3) Materials- All QToys are made of plantation timber using non-toxic, child-safe and recycled materials. This quality knob puzzle is solid, durable, and natural. I love that Qtoys aims to work toward zero waste target, and how it emphasises on the eco-friendly value, and complies with the strictest global safety standards. I love that each of the product is crafted with immeasurable passion and love, with the planet and environment in mind.
This is an awesome product!
