Until now, picture puzzles have been pretty self-explanatory. They're fun, challenging, and develop visual and spatial reasoning skills that will serve kids well in the long run. But with their small, irregular pieces, puzzles also equal messy play spaces and lost pieces. Until now! The "pieceless puzzle" is as good as its word. Dump it out, and you'll find one big interconnected mass of flexible puzzle waiting to be solved. The puzzle is two-sided, and since each strand is twisted and twirled around the others, kids will need their wits, as well as their eyes and hands, to make the picture whole. Easy clean-up and portability make this a top pick for puzzle enthusiasts, and parents, too! (Ceaco, $11.99)
