3.0 out of 5 stars Four cute puzzles, but..., January 21, 2013
I have three beefs with this product:

1. The lid doesn't have any way to keep it closed. It slides in place, but doesn't lock. This both makes me worry that it can accidentally come open in storage, and it makes it frustrating for my son when he's putting the puzzles together on it and he accidentally slides it.

2. Little wood splinters keep breaking off the bottom of the puzzle pieces. This is dangerous for little ones. Thankfully no one has gotten a sliver.

3. Some of the pictures on the top of the puzzle pieces have already started coming up; I'm going to have glue them back down.

My son does enjoy playing with these puzzles, and at only 12 pieces a puzzle it's something he can do by himself. But the product could be higher quality and better designed. I am disappointed that the pieces are coming apart after less than one month of play.

5.0 out of 5 stars love this product, May 30, 2012
Fantastic product! We have 3 sets of these and my son LOVES them all. I purchased the first set when was about two and a half. At this age he still enjoyed his peg puzzles, but I could tell he was ready for more of a challenge. These puzzles are perfect! Each puzzle contains twelve pieces. Assembled they are approximately 5" x 7". The wooden container is divided into four sections for storage; the container has a slide on lid. The back of each puzzle piece is stamped with a shape (different shape for each puzzle) for easy sorting. We have not had any problem with the wood splintering. The pieces are a little tight at first, but, after several assembles, they loosen and are easy for him to snap together independently. My son is three now; this is still not an independent activity for him. We have to do about 3 or 4 pieces together and after that he can do the rest himself. I see this as something that will definitely grow with him. Several reviewers commented on the small... Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars My niece enjoyed them, January 18, 2014
Daniel Ramirez (West Babylon, NY) - See all my reviews
Once I saw my three year old niece jigsaw puzzles I went out and got her a few. This is one of the sets I got. Pretty standard in terms of the quality of the pieces. I like it though because it had four puzzles in one small package and it had very nice and colorful pictures of sea creatures which my niece is into. I took away two stars though. One, the box it comes in is a wood box with a sliding top. It would be MUCH better if the top locked in some way to avoid having pieces fly out when you move it. The other thing is that inside the box there are four compartments (one for each puzzle). However, because of the spacing in the box pieces can move from one compartment to the other. It would have been nice if the box dividers were taller or of the back of the pieces were labeled. What I ended up doing was that after the first time my niece put one together and before we took it apart, I labeled the backs (like 1-12) with a sharpie so I knew which puzzle it belonged to and what piece...
