Rated 1 out of 5Â by April Poor quality - does not hold up
We've got two of these chunky puzzles. One of them is great, but the Safari puzzle is disappointing. The pieces are made of unsealed MDF, or particle board with stickers on top of them. They look great when new, but do not hold up well to infant/toddler play (i.e. chewing). The other chunky puzzle that we have is different in that the pieces are painted, and hold up much better. If purchasing one of these have a look at the side profile, if the puzzle pieces are painted all around it's probably fine. If the graphic is only on the top of the piece I'd stay away from it.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Nonna Love this Puzzle! Great Puzzle for my Two Year old Grandson
I purchased this puzzle for my 2 year old grandson. Large chunky pieces. He loves them and has fun not only putting it together but also using the pieces as stand alone figures. I was amazed that he also would point to the same animals in his story books. Great buy, highly recommend.

My 15 month old son got this for Christmas, and he likes to play with these animal pieces, but the quality is a little disappointing. The "wood" animals are some sort of wood composite board with paper images on top. The edges of the paper images have started to wear and tear up after just a couple weeks. I was also disappointed that the back of this "wood" puzzle is covered in a wood grained paper image. Poorly made in China from questionable products in my opinion.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Brie a busy mom of two Great Puzzle!
My son got this puzzle when he was 18 months old from his grandma and fell in love. After a few weeks he was able to do the puzzle by himself. And as he started talking it helped him to learn the names of the animals and their sounds. Now his little sister is enjoying the use of this and several more Melissa and Doug chunky puzzles. They hold up great! My kids like to put things in their mouth, and this puzzle has taken a beating and still looks good.
