This wooden bear is always smiling, but he's happiest when fully dressed! Getting dressed won't be such a puzzle once zipping, buckling, snapping, lacing and tying, and other dressing skills are mastered. Each skill is contained on a separate, wooden puzzle piece for easy practice. Develop fine motor and life skills with this great activity.

Customer Reviews of Basic Skills Board


Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun puzzle for learning dressing skills! When I saw this puzzle I knew my son would love it because he loves fastening the latches on his sister's swing and I was right! I love that each piece teaches a new basic dressing skill that they can practice with over and over and even though he may not be ready for every piece just yet he enjoys learning about it and comes to me to show him how. Plus, it's an adorable puzzle that is fun to put together. Only complaint is that the button and zipper are kind of tight so it's a bit difficult for little hands but they will definitely loosen over time. Overall, great teaching puzzle! Btw I never make reviews but we love this so much I had to because it's that great!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good idea, but a few flaws... My son likes this alright but there are a number of flaws. The pieces come out which makes it difficult for him to get a firm hold on them in order to operate the button/zipper/snap, etc. The button is a little too big for the hole and fabric which makes undoing it hard. The zipper is plastic and is really tricky to do up. the lace is too short for kids that are just learning. This is just frustrating for kids. There are many other toys similar to this that do a better job at the same task.
