What It Is
The Brilliant Basics Activity Puzzle is a traditional preschool puzzle in which shaped pieces fit into matching openings on a puzzle base. Fisher-Price adds a new level of play by creating six activity pieces that are engaging preschool toys in themselves and that jingle, rattle, squeak, and engage baby with things to look at, textures, and working pieces for little fingers to explore. The dog makes a jingling noise when shaken. The house has a door that babies can really open to reveal the mouse inside. When babies press the blue button on the cat, the cat squeaks. The heart has a mirror. The frog is a rattle. And the bird has wings made of cloth. Babies can determine where the pieces fit in the puzzle by matching the colors and shapes. This puzzle is designed to help children develop problem solving as they determine how the pieces fit into the shapes and hand-eye coordination.
Why It’s Useful
