Rated 5 out of 5Â by UpstateNYMom Excellent Product
I got this puzzle for my daughter when she was between 3 and 3.5 years old. She is advanced for her age at puzzles and I had difficulty finding a puzzle that was challenging enough, yet with peices she could handle. This puzzle fit exactly what I was looking for and she still asks to do it. It has taught her many of the states, and I relearned them while helping her with it. My daughter has many puzzles, and I'd say that this is a favorite for both of us. She loves learning about the states and I love that she is being educated and that the product is so sturdy. I like this product enough that I am considering getting the world map puzzle that is similar to this for Christmas or her 4th birthday.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Ed New Jersey is terrible
Big fan of M&D products but I must say I was disappointed by the representation of New Jersey on the map. This is our state so I naturally wanted to show my daughter NJ first. First, it is lumped together with 5 states. We couldn't even get our own piece. Second, there is the mis-shape. Come on people. It looks like a telephone receiver. This is not the shape of NJ. Lastly, we have no representation for what the state is known for. It is the garden state. Show me a tomato! I am saddened by what has transpired here.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by jes2010 We LOVE this puzzle in our home!
I love that the puzzle pieces are the shapes of the states. My 5.5 year old son has played with this on and off (he goes through phases) for over a year. Thanks to this puzzle he knows where all the states are, can recognize them by shape, and even knows most of the capitals. Even I can't claim that! GREAT PUZZLE!!!
