My 4year old daughter loves jigsaw puzzles and its amazing how she can complete a 100-piece board, in less than 20 minutes without looking at the pattern. She has shown her penchant for puzzles even when she was still 2years old. At playrooms, she would go for the puzzles more than the rides and slides. We bought her more boxes of puzzles and 1 with 1000 pieces to challenge her. She hasn't started it yet, because it's schoolweek, but we'll see how fast she can finish it during the weekend. And, earlier tonight, I challendged her in a puzzle race, and she beat me to finishing her puzzle set. What a whiz kid.

Children these days are full of wonders . They are so adorable and clever and gosh I wish I have my own kids now. Well, that's not bad at all for her to complete a puzzle of 100 pieces in less than 20 minutes. And the fact that you said she got you beaten just surprises me even more. One month has passed now and I really wonder how long did she take to finish the 1000 pieces puzzle you bought that day. Tell me .

Oh, the 1000piece set hasn't been opened yet. I don't want her to open it without our supervision, because she might just end up losing them one by one. I'm sure she won't be able to finish it in one sitting, because those are very small pieces, less than an inch per side. So, it's easy to lose them when not kept properly. We'll open it once, we have free time and a long one, so we could supervise her, and even play with her.

I congratulate you for your sweet little girl!!! She is amazing! I bought a first puzzle for my youngest granddaughter (2 years old) for this Christmas. I hope she gets interested in that as it is so important as a way of learning. I think that I`m going to tell my grandson, her brother, to ask her to lent it to him. The only toys she likes are the ones he`s plating with .

I think it boosts their logic and analytical skills. It is indeed a good educational but fun game for kids.

Exactly! Whenever she starts playing with non-toys, like combs, books, and other stuff she'd find in our room that she shouldn't be touching, I would tell her to go get her puzzles and play with them instead.
