Unique high quality wooden Montessori puzzles handcrafted with non toxic paints and finishes. Knobs on pieces encourage development of pincer grip in preparation for holding a pencil and learning to write. Knobs are the same as ones found on other common Montessori puzzles and puzzle maps. Images are silkscreened with water based, non toxic paints on Baltic Birch plywood and finished with water based varnish. Matching nomenclature cards available separately. Solid plywood construction ensures corners will never get rounded or look “frayed”.
