Your child's name puzzle with an extra piece - a darling sitting puppy!
We are currently shipping in 10 days or less. Delivery takes 2 to 3 days.
Chunky pieces - the pup can sit on a shelf. We usually make the puppy a golden yellow with a red scarf, but if you prefer other colors just let us know.Letters are stained the colors of the rainbow (red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple). On short names we drop the orange - it just looks best that way.

Up to 7 letters, no spaces please. Please type the exact spelling of the child's name in the "Note to Seller" area of your order.
If you need a name puzzle with more letters, or prefer simply a name without a shape added, cut and paste the link to our secure website onto your browser: http://www.puzzlepeople.com/

Pieces are a chunky 1/2"" thick, and rise slightly above the 1/4" tray for easy palacement and removal by little fingers. Non-toxic materials throughout.

When shopping for name puzzles for toddlers, look for these important educational characteristics:
* Meaningfully shaped letter pieces without sharp points,
* Letters spaced apart, not squashed together, tabs, or "gimmicky" shaped letters,
* Well sanded, front and back, like all our puzzles.
* Letters on a straight line, not tipped or "floating"
* Stained or painted pieces, versus laminated paper
* Tray to define and contain the pieces, versus frameless
* Unless the child is over age 4 avoid traditional "Inny-Outty" shaped puzzle pieces as they are simply too challenging

We also send you the slat of wood which was used for the pieces - this makes a cute photo frame by simply taping snapshots behind each letter-shaped (and puppy-shaped) hole.

Puzzle measures 6" tall, length varies with number of letters,) usually between 16" and 22" long), 3/4" thick.

IMPORTANT NOTE: We ship via Priority Mail, a fast (usually 3 days) and cost effective method.
Since we ship all over the country, it is difficult to estimate the actual postage. Once we do ship, if the postage is $2.50 or more lower than charged, we will refund the difference.

No International shipments.

Frequently asked questions about puzzlepeople

Sorry, we do not sell wholesale
We will happily add a 3" wooden heart with ribbon and write your special greetings on it. If the child is turning "1" or "2" etc., just mention it and we'll string that number onto the ribbon as well. Just mention it in the "Note to Seller" area of your order or send a Convo. We do not, however, gift wrap.
