Rated 5 out of 5Â by Chi-town mommy in VT Perfect size!
My one year old loves this. At first, he just wanted to make noise with the pieces--which was a fun exercise to watch in itself. He experimented with each one to see which shapes he preferred to bang together comfortably. Unlike some of the thinner versions of wooden puzzles with small handles, this is perfect for him to manage and manipulate. Now nearly three weeks after playing with them, he has begun to attempt placing them into the correct spots and has been successful. You must encourage this toy and spend quality time playing with your child to see progress with it, but it is definitely worth it!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by GiovanniJMom Wonderful puzzle
I bought a few M & D products for my son's upcoming 2 year birthday and this puzzle was one of the gifts I was supposed to give him. I actually gave it to him today instead! This puzzle is great. My son loves it. Ever since I opened it, he can't get enough. He already knows where all the pieces go and it provides him with endless entertainment and fun. It really well made. Strong, durable wood and very sturdy as well as colorful. I am very happy with this purchase and I recommend this puzzle to anyone with young children. It aids in early development and learning.

I have a son with cerebal palsy and this is his favorite puzzle. It is the only puzzle I can find with the large knobs. I also have two grandsons, 27 months and 11 months, and they also LOVE Uncle Dan's puzzle. It teaches them their shapes and colors, and is just right for their little hands. (My youngest grandson also likes it because when he holds the pieces in his hands and crawls, it makes a "cool" sound.

I have always associated Melissa and Doug with high quality products and purchased many of the products as gifts. I finally purchased something for my little one and I was shocked at how poorly this puzzle held up. The edges were not smooth on the different pieces, which can be overlooked, but when my six month old gnawed on a piece the decal/paint peeled off!
