Tiny Me

Personalised name puzzles are always a hit and you can now buy a high-quality version of this timeless puzzle at Tiny Me! With an exclusive range of beautiful designs, educational benefits and integrated storage for easy pack up, the puzzles make for brilliant Christmas gifts for kids.

Aside from developing fine motor skills, colour and shape recognition, a personalised puzzle is also a keepsake that children will love even as they grow up. These name puzzle blocks are double-sided. The first side allows your little one to create their name by matching letters and colours. Once they've mastered this step, simply turn the blocks over to reveal the black and white text version. No colour prompt means that matching needs to be based only on the letter.

With over 19 charities and counting, your friends and family overseas get a chance to donate to a cause and part of the proceeds go towards a gift for your child. What’s more, you’ll be able to send thank you notes to all after the event too.  Less physical gifts, more mindfulness all the way!
