Rated 1 out of 5Â by Pre k Kate Disappointed with quality
My daughter received a version of this for christmas that looks slightly different than pictured. This is the first M and D product that I have been completely unhappy with. As a mom and preschool teacher I have purchased and used many of their materials and love them but this puzzle falls far short of M and D's usual high quality. Several doors will not close flat, many of the animals are chipped and or broken which is due to the fact that they are extremely difficult to remove from the barn. They fit so tightly that my daughter has to work to get them in and then my husband or I have to try to pry them out. Disappointed with this product but can see how the concept would benefit young children.

I am a first time grandmother who likes toys with an educational element and gave my children Melissa and Doug puzzles. My grandson loves to open and close things. I gave my grandson the Hide and Seek Farm for his first birthday in October. He loves to sit opening and closing the doors on the barn and taking the animals out of their hiding places. Manipulating the doors and magnetic animals improve his hand-eye coordination and motor skills. I am extremely satifised with the product and will be buying him more Melissa and Doug toys.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Shelley Great Purchase!
Tis product is GREAT! The Easter Bunny brought this for my son who is just shy of 2 years old. He LOVES it. We talk about the animals and where they live. He likes to be praised after he locates the correct home for each animal. He will also try to play tricks and try every door but where the animal actually goes.....just to see if he can pull one over on mom and dad! I wish there were more available like this!

I bought this for my 2-year-old grandson. It is very nice. The fact that the pieces don't get lost from the rest of the puzzle because they are magnetic is a bonus. He enjoys opening the doors to find what's behind them.
