I like the skills it teaches but I didn't read closely enough they are removable pieces. My 2 yr 10 month old looked at it and walked away. The skills are perhaps early for his age but despite being a puzzle lover, this one didn't pull him in. It is well made and I suspect he will have it for a couple years.
The latches work great and my grandson loves it! I was disappointed in the quality of the puzzle board itself. There was a chip out of one side of it.
I bought this toy to replace an old version by another company that was missing the balls. This updated toy is beautifully made. It is sturdy and colorful. It was perfect for our 25 month old grand-daughter. Preschoolers love repetition. Our grand-daughter exclaimed "I pounding!" This toy will provide many opportunities for fine motor development, including eye-hand coordination and strengthening.
