4.0 out of 5 stars More "Precious" than Practical, July 14, 2016
This is my "I paid full price" honest review.

The puzzles are nice and the box is nice. My son likes to do the puzzles. However, they're as small as they could possibly be for toddler puzzles. Even if the whole thing was just 15 percent bigger, it would be a vast improvement.

The box is separated into quarters, and the puzzle pieces to the four puzzles go in each section. These sections are juuuust big enough to hold the dozen pieces of each puzzle. The top of the box slides into grooves to cover the box, and in the case of my almost-three year old, it often gets jammed. Pieces fly out as the box is closing. If you're feeling trepidation about giving your barely-preschooler a box of 48 not very big puzzle pieces, you have good reason. Of course, with my boy, he's the age where I am there with him as he does a puzzle; but, you know, they do find a way to get into things (unless of course you're a perfect parent with pinterest-worthy organization skills--I...

2.0 out of 5 stars This is SMALL!!, February 1, 2018
So I failed to check the product dimensions. I assumed it was like a normal toddler puzzle size. It’s not. It’s about as small as it could possibly be and still say that preschoolers can use it. I almost always read reviews, but I didn’t this time. I mean, it’s a puzzle. And I have some of their other stuff, all normal size. I’m not sure why this is so tiny but it is. My advice is to check the dimensions before you purchase. My oldest just turned 3 and I feel like this will just be a lot of frustration with the pieces so small. I’ll probably put it away for later use and find a better option.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great first jigsaw puzzle, March 27, 2016
I bought this for my 2 1/2 year old. I think it is great first "real" puzzle for her. She was getting bored with toddler puzzles and these are excellent jigsaw puzzles for young children. The puzzles themselves are only 12 pieces which are enough of a challenge that it takes her a few minutes to put together, but not enough pieces that she is frustrated. The pieces are wood, not just cardboard so they stand up better to little fingers trying to force them together. She is very interested in animals and has not grown bored with them yet. She will get excited and insist on finishing all 4 puzzles before moving on to another activity. Another HUGE plus: the pieces all have symbols printed on the backs so they are sorted easily. Wonderful idea! So not only do you have a nice sturdy wooden box with lid and four partitions to keep the puzzles in, if they do get mixed up it is easy to correct. One thing to note, since this is a bundled set, the puzzles share the same four symbols... Read more
