January 10, 2014. San Jose, California. Ever since we downloaded TozzleHD--an iPad app featuring varying styles and skill levels of puzzles--Hazel can't get enough of puzzles, including traditional ones. I tried on several occasions to sit down with Hazel and get her interested in putting together this Winnie the Pooh puzzle, but with little success; concluding that it was too complicated for her 2-year-old mind. Now that a simple puzzle app (and some of her Dad's patience) has sparked her interest (and given her success on smaller puzzles) she's interested in attempting this larger puzzle too. I place the pieces face up on this floor mat and she can successfully pull out all the pieces belonging to one particular character. Once I get two pieces put together (per character) she can stumble through the rest. And when there's about five pieces left to the entire puzzle, she can figure those out too...with a little encouragement.
