Single Wire Puzzle Rack
For ages 2 & up
I can’t find this on the Target website, but it’s the Target brand Circo. The one pictured is from Melissa & Doug. For Christmas, one of the gifts I got Melody was a puzzle rack with 4 puzzles. It is the simple ones with the little knobs on the pieces. The rack holds up to twelve 9″x12″ puzzles. The recommended age is 2+ but we found that after a few times Melody had no problems with taking the pieces out and matching them with the correct slot. We had to think of creative things to do so we wouldn’t feel like we’ve wasted money. We’ve worked on learning to say the names of the pieces (animals, shapes, etc.), and the sounds that the animals make. We’ve added 3 puzzles to the rack recently for ages 3+.
It holds the puzzles pretty well, but it is a little difficult to put a puzzle back if the rack is empty. The rack does a good job of holding the puzzles in so they don’t slide out when the rack is tipped forward. It is a bit hard for a 2-year-old to slide the puzzles back into their slots after playing with them. Overall, I think it’s a great deal for what you get. (It was under $12 for the rack and 4 puzzles.)
Melissa & Doug 9″x12″ chunky wooden puzzles also fit in the rack, but is more expensive.
