I purchased this puzzle as a gift for my granddaughter's 2nd birthday. Inserted brand new batteries, did not work. Tried another set of batteries...still did not work. Exchanged it for another of the same and it does not work, either. I also see that in very small print on reverse side, it says "light-activated, use in bright light", which I think is ridiculous but even after trying that, there is still no sound!!! Sooo, another trip to store -- this time for full refund!!! And BTW, I do believe that most Melissa & Doug products are overrated & overpriced!

I received this toy as a gift from my daughter's grandparents. Hubby did not know the whole "light activated" thing and I just didn't read the "instructions". First time it startled me then I figured it out. Hubby did not know about the toy and. Last night after he turned the lights off it started playing. Talk about a possessed toy. Anyway, my daughter has little interest in it and the instruments don't sound like the original. Also, if you place the harmonica where the piano is suppose to go it still places. Pretty pointless toy.

I bought this puzzle for my 2 year old. The concept behind the puzzle is good. However, if you are buying this puzzle to help a child learn the sounds of different instruments, the puzzle can be confusing for a young child. We discovered that if you put the wrong instrument piece over the opening (e.g., put the piano piece over the opening for the drum), it still plays that instrument. This design flaw needs to be corrected.

I expected the instruments to actually sound like those instruments!!! The drum and the xylophone were the only ones that sounded good. The rest are just different tones of the same sound. I wanted my granddaughter to learn from this, but that won't be happening.
