There is no clearly defined age from which a child should be encouraged to reach for games. Puzzles for preschoolers will be slightly less complicated than projects dedicated to older children.

There is also no shortage of Polish accents, as the Bajo company creates beautiful and minimalist products that tempt with charming aesthetics
Egmont Publishing offers a first strategy game for toddlers. Four in a Row is a project that will teach players to anticipate their opponent's moves and plan their own. Strategic and analytical thinking will get a real workout - on a punched, vertical board you have to arrange a horizontal, vertical or diagonally running row created from four tokens of your color. This is an excellent puzzle for children who are at least five years old and have mastered the basics of mathematics. The game is made entirely of wood - a safe and durable material, which makes Egmont's design extremely sturdy. It will be a great gift for birthdays - it will develop many valuable skills and teach your child patience.
The Tetris wooden puzzle from Bajo is a Polish design that impresses with its simplicity and minimalism. The colorful pieces need to be combined to fit into the wooden board, but you can go beyond the toy and also use them to build structures and create a variety of shapes. The game from Bajo is great for developing spatial imagination and the ability to analyze. The free combination of elements is also a display of the toddler's creativity - he can create architectural wonders and play with them in many ways. They were created from wood painted with non-toxic paints, so the blocks are completely safe for children.
Fat Brain Toys offers a strategy game Morphy that relies on perceptiveness to find similarities and differences.

The Tulum strategy game involves playing archaeologists and searching for valuable treasures on the grounds of an ancient Mayan city. Each turn consists of discovering more areas of the jungle, but it's easy to lose them due to an erupting volcano. Tulum will be a great game for the whole family - it guarantees many moments of laughter and the development of a positive competitive spirit. In turn, another proposal of the Parisian brand - Sheep Logic - is an addictive strategy game, which consists in arranging the board in such a way as to finally get rid of as many elements assigned to the player as possible. What counts here, however, is tactics and good planning of the next moves. The game shapes strategic thinking and spatial orientation. It will be perfect for children who are at least seven years old, as it requires players to be able to anticipate moves or think analytically.

Memo Labyrinth is a proposition from the world-famous bestseller "Press Me" by French creator Hervé Tullet Color Memo, which involves memorizing colors and figures in such a way as to collect the same cards in pairs, and Black and White Labyrinths, where you build your own paths and twisted paths, are two puzzle games that spark imagination, teach color and shape recognition or inference.
