The Weizenkorn Pocket Puzzles are different to the regular jigsaw puzzles as each piece is in the shape of a square and has a pattern (instead of a complete picture) on the upper side. This makes it easier for children to put together as there are no interlocking pieces and has more than one option to match one piece to another. The 9 matching squares also come with an elastic holder which easily holds them together in one neat stack making it easy to bring along to a restaurant or on a flight. Puzzles in general are great for encouraging problem solving, fine motor skills development as well as hand and eye coordination and a wonderful reason to spend time together as a family.
Recommended Age: 2 years+
Dimensions: Each piece is 7 x 6 x 4 cm
The Weizenkorn Foundation based in Basel, Switzerland, is a social enterprise which supports and employs over 300 young men and women with psychological impairments who are unable to find meaningful work via traditional methods. The diverse workshops of the Weizenkorn Foundation are accompanied by 80 team members as well as an internal social service to help these young men and women strengthen their existing skills and to improve employability in the private sector. The structured workshops run by the Weizenkorn Foundation not only cover areas such as sales, accounting and gastronomy but also focus on wooden toy design, creation and production. Every Weizenkorn car, plane and puzzle is crafted in its entirety within the Weizenkorn Foundation, from initial idea to the end product, giving the impaired men and women a sense of achievement, acceptance and self worth which in itself is priceless.
