5.0 out of 5 stars Great set for young children. Very detailed pics and well made product, December 14, 2015
(I just wrote a long review for this item and went to submit it, and the words disappeared!! So this will be much shorter and to the point!!)
My first impressions:
1.) box was much smaller then I expected, especially for the price I paid.
2) seemed heavy and very well built

Christmas morning:
1.) when my son opened this present, he was ECSTATIC!!! At age 2 he was a puzzle master and dinosaur obsessed! He wanted to stop opening presents right away and put these puzzles together!

Opening the box:
1.) The plastic this box was wrapped in was easy to get into, the wooden lid on the box itself, not so much.. My son couldn't get it open himself so he needed help with that.. It took some effort on my part to get it slid off as well, because the places that are cut out for the lid to slide in and out of are pretty stiff.. I guess that is a good thing though because after lots of use, you don't want the lid to just start sliding off on its... Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice! Definitely for 3 and up, but well-made, May 3, 2017
Nada Chance (Carrollton, MO United States) - See all my reviews
The numbers on the back of the pieces make sorting them out very easy; no mixing puzzles. Pieces were a little small for my 2 year old but these were bought at an awesome price 6 months before her birthday and she should have no problem with them now.
Box is easy to open and close, not extra large, and the tray on top for assembling the puzzles was a huge help.
Colors are bright, box is well-sanded, pieces are smooth and fit together well. This is a good buy for any dino-nuts!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best puzzle I've found for 3-5 year olds!, December 4, 2016
I bought this for my grandson, who turned 3 in November. He loves any kind of puzzle, but these Melissa & Doug puzzle collection is wonderful! First of all, each of the puzzles are marked on the back with either a triangle, a diamond, a square and a circle, and each puzzle has it's own square inside to put the pieces in. So, it's easy for Evan to sort the pieces if they get mixed up, He puts the pieces in the box upside down so he can make sure they are all separated correctly. Second, you put the puzzle together on the lid, which has wooden edges that keep the puzzle contained. We're teaching Evan to do the corners first and then the outside, which is easy since the perimeter of the puzzle stands out. Third, the pieces are thick enough for little hands to manipulate easily. I heartily recommend these puzzles for 3-5 year olds, because they make the child think rather than just plunk a piece into a space that is shaped exactly like the puzzle piece.
