Wooden Puzzles

Wooden puzzles are a great way to challenge your little one’s mind

There’s so much value in a simple wooden puzzle! Not only is it a fun and engaging pastime for your little one, but it can significantly help them develop their fine motor skills, finger strength, perseverance and problem-solving skills.

You can sit back and watch as your child works to solve the puzzle and watch them turn, flip, slide and wriggle the wooden pieces into position. Once the puzzle is finally finished, your little one will have an incredible sense of accomplishment, encouraging them to solve more challenging puzzles and problems!

What are the benefits of Montessori-inspired games and toys like wooden jigsaw puzzles?

At My Happy Helpers, we believe wholeheartedly in the Montessori learning philosophy, allowing children to guide their own learning and education independently. Wooden puzzles and toys are a big part of the Montessori learning experience, which is why we stock such an amazing range!


As per the Montessori philosophy, Montessori wooden jigsaw puzzles are designed with simple shapes and colours so your child can discover their meaning and purpose independently. Instead of toys that make lots of noise or move around, Montessori toys are passive learning toys so your child can play in a way that suits them and helps them to learn at a self-guided pace.

We want every child to grow and learn at their own pace with toys that are both fun and safe. We’re proud of the products we design for Australian families and have a variety of Montessori-inspired toys to help your little one learn.

Why buy wooden puzzles for your child?

The Montessori philosophy is based on supporting the complete development of a child from birth to adulthood, and offers the view that knowledge is not gained by listening to words but rather by experiences in the child’s environment.

Hands-on learning, collaboration and self-guided activity are three of the main pillars in the method of teaching and are all aimed at letting the child make creative choices in the pursuit of reaching their maximum potential. 

My Happy Helpers has a range of Montessori wooden puzzles for your little one to play with and enjoy benefiting from the Montessori way of teaching.

The puzzles are purposely made from natural materials so your child can connect with nature and understand different textures and weights. Doing so helps refine your child’s senses and gives them more to feel and learn about when holding the puzzles. Meeting the Australian safety standards, the Montessori wooden puzzles are non-toxic, so they are safe for your little one’s mouth.
