Velcro matching activities (aka Busy book pages) are perfect for developing minds. It is never too early to introduce toddlers to shape matching games, as it will help them prepare for future learning in school. Games like this one will help them develop their visual discrimination skills, reasoning and problem-solving skills as well as their coordination.
