Dadu's puzzles are open-ended, developmental toys that can be used in a wide variety of ways

The most obvious use is for children to rearrange the mixed-up elements to recreate the picture, which helps develop their shape and color recognition, fine motor skills, concentration, hand-eye coordination, and spatial awareness. However, this only keeps them engaged as long as it presents a challenge, and that's not what makes these puzzles open-ended. These puzzles offer many more possibilities.

More Than Just Putting Pieces Together

Children use their own imagination and creativity to use the puzzle pieces for various other purposes. They create unique characters, beautiful flowers, funny vehicles, castles, landscapes, cook with them, use them for role-playing, play board games with their own rules, and build anything they can imagine from their favorite stories. Through play, they enhance their fine motor skills, spatial awareness, and get familiar with colors. Older kids can find a challenge in seeking balance while creating exciting and unusual structures.

Dadu Wooden Puzzles: Play and Development at Once

Dadu's puzzles range from very simple ones with just a few pieces for the very young to more complex ones recommended primarily for preschool and early elementary school children.

Inspiring Ideas

For most of our puzzles, we also share photos featuring such figures or structures that often have little to do with the original design, but these are just inspirations.
We show them only to spark your enthusiasm — or for those who need it, courage — for free and unconventional play because creativity and imagination are fueled by unrestricted imagination.

Characters for Role-playing and Stories

Figures crafted from various puzzle elements ignite the imagination. Since the elements used to assemble them were not designed to precisely shape the characters or animals that your imagination brings to life, often very distinctive, funny, irregular, and peculiar beings are created. With a bit of imagination, these beings can easily become the protagonists of unique stories and magical tales.

Quality Time Spent Together

You surely know how important shared play, conversations, paying attention to each other—essentially, quality time spent together—is for a child's development and deepening your relationship.
By personifying figures created from Dadu puzzles in free, unstructured play, both younger and older children, as well as adults, can together build a unique, personalized world to which everyone can connect.

Unique, Original Wooden Puzzles: No Two Alike

Each of Dadu's toys is uniquely designed: we draw them directly onto the wood, cut, sand, and paint each one by hand. We couldn't replicate them even if we wanted to.

Our Tray Puzzles

Many of our puzzles come with custom trays that not only make storage easier but also serve as a stable base, especially when kids play on carpets.
