1. Trucky 3 is a puzzle and a game all rolled into one, also called a multi-level logic game. These Smart Games are awesome! And since Caden loves anything with wheels I think he is going to love this game! Caden also loves building things which is another reason I think he will enjoy this game.

2. Melissa & Doug Alphabet Express Floor Puzzle – Caden has mastered wooden peg puzzles and is ready to move on to more difficult puzzles. I think this puzzle would be the perfect next step because he would only need to match up two sides of each puzzle piece to build the train.

3. Eeboo Preschool Color Puzzle Pairs – Eeboo puzzles and games are fantastic! They are cute and durable! I am hoping that this puzzle will help Caden to solidify his color recognition while having fun at the same time!

8. A to Z Capitols Crepe Rubber Puzzle by Lauri Toys – We have other alphabet puzzles, but I keep hearing that these are the best. They are made of durable crêpe rubber and have an image under each puzzle piece that matches the letter to reinforce letter sounds. And best of all Lauri Toys will replace any missing pieces!

9. Jumbo Bananagrams – Need I say more? Even though Caden won’t be spelling for some time now, these jumbo letter tiles are durable and can be used for all sorts of other games! These would be a fun way to learn the alphabet!

BONUS! HABA: My Very First Games are great games for little beginners. They are for children ages 2 and up! There are the only games I have ever seen that are for two-year olds. They are very well made, mostly wooden and pose no choking hazards. We have the First Orchard game and Caden is just now getting the hang of it!
