Kanoodle Jr. offers 60 challenging puzzles to help build critical thinking and spatial-reasoning skills in children as young as four. Players use combinations of the six colorful segment pieces to solve three different types of puzzles: color matching, path, and wall. Difficulty levels are marked by stars from one (easiest) to five (most difficult). Solutions are provided on the last page of the instruction booklet.

Whether playing solo or collaboratively, the self-contained easily transportable puzzle set had our testers (from five to sixty-five) scratching their heads and high-fiving as they worked their way through the challenges. When playful thinking sessions are over, there's a bonus challenge: fitting the pieces back into the case.

Parents' Choice Foundation's PlayAbility Scale® rates Kanoodle Jr. very strong on building cognitive skills including, critical thinking skill, spatial reasoning and persistence.
