Rated 5 out of 5Â by Rocket City mom Fun!
My husband picked this up for our little girl (2 1/2) because we just love M & D toys. She has hours of fun with it! We sit and discuss what the numbers are and where they go. I ask her to count the number of pictures associated with each number and find the piece that fits. She likes to sit in the floor with mommy and show me she can put it together. When we call MiMi, Nana, or GiGi on the big tv web cam, she sits in front of it showing them the pieces and telling them what the piece is and asking for them to help her put the puzzle together.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Puzzle Mom Lacking Quality
My son loves Melissa and Doug chunky puzzles and mastered his letters before the age of two. For his second birthday we ordered him this numbers puzzle so he could master those as well. He has and he loves the puzzle, however this particular one is of a much poorer quality than his letter puzzle purchased a couple years ago. Instead of the pieces being painted all around, there's just a paper coating with the number on the front of an exposed rough wooden block. Not as durable, as the paper on several numbers has already peeled back.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Rhonda Pretty enough to hang on the wall
This is for my 15-month-old. We sit on the ground and name the numbers, count and name the animals, name the colors...it a nice puzzle that keeps Mommy...er, my son occupied. It's a little big for him to lift and carry easily, but it's made for an older kid to handle.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by ButterBeer Taught my 2.5 year old how to count to 20
My 2.5 year old toddler had no problems recognizing and counting till 12 but could not get beyond that. I was thrilled that after 2 weeks of playing with this toy, she was able to count to 20 for the first time. Excellent toy and great quality!
