Spelling puzzle activity

This type of puzzle is a great way to teach baby phonics and spelling. This also is an excellent motor activity as puzzle pieces are thinner than normal. This is self correcting puzzle. I love Montessori idea about self correcting toys so the baby will be prepared to work on these activities by himself. 

My Eaton needs some help with these puzzles from time to time so I stay with him whenever he grabs them from the shelf.
There are 18 puzzles of different animals: cat, horse, mouse, monkey, toucan, snake, cow, goat, sheep, turtle, lion, dog, owl etc...



Here is the video of Eaton doing his favorite animal puzzle.
