Great for fine motor skills because the pegs are easy to grasp, but the pieces are milled well enough that she has to place them carefully compared to cheaper puzzles. We talk about what goes on the ground or the sky, what color each vehicle is, etc.
This is a nice, big, colorful puzzle with plenty of visual detail to help little kids find the right pieces of the castle, dandelion field, sky. Our daughter (3) loves puzzles, and by the second time out of the box she was putting pieces together and verbalizing her process-- "let's find the froggy, where is the lady's nose?, this looks like a bridge", etc. The pieces fit together easily and come apart cleanly. The smarmy look on the deer's face cracks me up!
I ordered this for my niece for her 9th birthday. It arrived BEFORE her b-day. (I was worried that it would be late ... but actually arrived in 2 business days) Not only my 9 year old niece loved it, but her older sister and parents have enjoyed playing with it also. Well worth the money. from Rita, Atlanta, GA
