I almost didn't order this puzzle after all the negative reviews about the old quality not being kept up anymore. I am happy to report that it is still painted solid wood. I don't know if they tried to cheapen their production for awhile or what. It is still a quality product.
Good quality. I like that the pieces easily stand on their own as well so they can be played with separately from the puzzle. Nice addition to the toy box for our nieces and nephew.
I got this puzzle for my two year old girls and they absolutely love it.
Bigger than I thought but small enough my girls can still carry it no problem.
The puzzle is made of wood.
The pieces are chunky and can stand up. They are the perfect size for little hands and has a good feel to them. Smooth and no rough edges.
The puzzle spaces have the same picture as the pieces so they can find the right spot easily.
Over all I love this puzzle and would most definitely recommend to a friend.
My two-year-old grandson loves this puzzle. The pieces are nicely done, and painted. The puzzle is made of wood. He repeatedly dumps the pieces and puts them in. These pieces also can double as toys by themselves. There is a lot of play value to this puzzle because of this. My grandson will play with it for half an hour at a time. He is not sick of it at all. This is a great learning toy, play toy and self-esteem builder. Little ones like that they can figure out easily where the pieces go. This was a winner of a choice for my little guy.
this is my son's first puzzle , although it is somehow expensive but I say its worth it because each block is big ( toddlers /babies can easily hold it),
the colors are very attractive. it promotes learning in a very fun way . this puzzle is very durable and the paints are not peeling off ( even being wet at times) . during his 2nd birthday we had a barnyard theme birthday and I used the animals from this puzzle to decorate the table .Im very satisfied with this purchase.
I love this puzzle. My daughter's speech therapist brings it with her when she has her visits. My daughter loves doing it over and over again and she has gotten so good at it. The animal pieces are thicker than the board so they stick out making it easy for those little hands to pick them up. I had to order one because it makes me so happy to see my daughter doing so well with it.
I have been searching for good puzzles for toddlers. I am a developmental specialist and work with infants and toddlers with special needs. I look for easy puzzles that have pieces that are easy for toddlers to pick up. I need puzzles that are sturdy and hold up well. I toss them in bags and in my trunk so they have to be able to take a good beating.
I have been using this a ton and the kids really seem to love it. I can use it to not only work on the fine motor skill of putting the puzzle piece in but also the cognitive skill of matching the animals, the language skill of learning animals sounds, names and colors. There is just so much I can do with this puzzle with really young children and ones with delays.
