I received this as a gift to use in my church nursery education program. I played with a toy similar to this when I was 4 and I'm thrilled that my Sunday school kids will have this experience. My mom, who got it for me, thinks asked for it for myself, which is partly true. I love it and I know the kids will too.
When the pound a peg we bought didn't live up to expectation, I called melissa and doug and they sent the pound and roll, no questions asked. My kid loves it. Wants to play with it throughout the day, and is certainly developing hand eye coordination as a result. Love the company, Love the toy.
My granddaughter loves to simulate her day at preschool and pretends to be the teacher while the other family members pretend to be her students. At three years old she's already learning the different states and asking more about telling time! Just wish it came with more maps that incorporated more variety in them! Otherwise it's great and very engaging and educational and something that can serve as independent play or involves the whole family!
