Rated 5 out of 5Â by A Happy Mum First rate!
My son, just turned 3, adores these 4 puzzles - he loves the pictures, and keeps wanting to do all 4 over and over again. I am thrilled he has managed to master the idea in about 3 sessions, and that he enjoys them so much. These encourage his visual development, creative thinking, fine matching skills, and fine motor skills (just putting the pieces together). We do these together for fun -he puts the pieces together and I comment as he does them, and only give him clues when he asks for help. This size is just right - 12 pieces, enough to challenge without overwhelming -then another 3 puzzles if he has the energy. His little face beaming with a sense of achievement every time he completes one warms my heart. EXCELLENT!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by StrestnBlest Great puzzle, just one dislike.
Love Melissa and Doug products, especially puzzles! Nice wood box and wood pieces. Pics are delightful to look at. The only thing I don't care for is that my son didn't really have a good pic to look at to try to copy to make the puzzle. The only pics of each puzzle is on the side of the box that holds all the pieces and we would have to hold up the box upright to see the pic of the puzzle. It's just a bit inconvenient, especially for my special needs child. But I would definitely NOT let that stop you from buying this puzzle!!!

My mom bought this and the sea animal set for my boys 3 and 4. They spent hours putting them together and taking them apart. They seem to be high quality and are easy enough for my 3 year old to put together without help. I also like that each puzzle has a different shaped stamp on the back so if they get mixed up they are easily sorted, which also adds to the challenge for our 4 year old- mix them up and let him sort them as he puts them together as the puzzles are a bit easy for him. I love the little storage boxes!

My son is 2.5 and he puts your puzzles together almost every day. the pictures are concise and easy to recognize. He is able to recognize which pieces goes with which picture - without looking at the back label. It is great the that puzzle pieces are not interchangeable with other pictures. the Size of the puzzle is perfect for his little hands, not too big and not too small. I am going to buy a few more for my friends and relatives.
