Injini Puzzle Game
Your toddler or preschooler will squeal with delight as she moves pieces to complete whimsical pictures such as a playful sea turtle, a family of candy-colored snails, or a cowboy driving a covered wagon. Simply drag the pieces to fill the missing parts of an object or scene. When the last piece is moved into place your child is rewarded with a beautiful storybook-quality picture that comes to life through fun animation and sounds. Text and voice-over identify the scene or object to add to the learning experience. With 90 puzzles of varying degrees of difficulty, your child will enjoy many hours of fun while developing cognitive and fine motor skills.
Developmental Benefits: The Injini puzzles practice fine motor skills and help to develop the understanding of spatial concepts. Children begin to understand spatial location terms – e.g., “in” – around age two, according to nineteen studies performed by Johnston (1988). As the understanding of spatial concepts increases with age, this also influences their development of handwriting. Furth and Wachs (1974) recommend puzzles as a medium to practice sorting combined with the use of verbal analogies. Injini puzzles implement verbal analogies by introducing vocabulary upon completion of the picture.
