I love these puzzles. Because of there sturdiness, my 2 year old grandson has learned how to separate the pieces and even to collect the ones that go together. They are the perfect size for little hands to try and then succeed at puzzle solving. The shapes on the back distinguishing the four different puzzles makes for a great game in and of itself. The box is perfect, so much better then the flimsey puzzle boxes normally sold that he rips and tears right away, leaving the pieces to be lost and destroyed. Highly recommended!
I originally purchased this puzzle for my 2 1/2yr old granddaughter. She and her 5 year old sister played with it. The younger needed help with it, but the older seemed to figure it out quite nicely and could do the puzzle independently. Great educational toy, and that's what I love about Melissa and Doug
My 3 year old granddaughter loves Melissa and Doug puzzles! She started with 24 pieces and mastered them in no time. Now she loves the 48 piece puzzles! And the bright pictures make them even more fun!
