Rated 4 out of 5 by from LO loved this This is more appropriate for little ones 9 months - 2 years. Older and you need to challenge them more. It's chunky for less coordinated hands. They love the farm theme and learning to match the pieces with the image.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much loved puzzle This puzzle was so popular at our house among the preschool crowd that we purchased another to give as a gift. Sturdy, smooth, chunky wooden pieces painted in lovely bright colours, with no weird manufacturing odors make this a winner! Great for teaching about African savannah animals, and practicing hand-eye coordination. #plumreview

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice puzzle This puzzle is great for young toddlers. It comes with seven chunky animals and a barn. The pieces are easy to grasp for small hands. They are also very vibrant colours. And added bonus is that the animals can be used outside of the puzzle as they are able to stand upright. Definitely a decent puzzle, and love that it is wood instead of cardboard which makes it last longer. Perfect gift that will help toddlers learn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Puzzle! Great Puzzle for my Two Year old Grandson I purchased this puzzle for my 2 year old grandson. Large chunky pieces. He loves them and has fun not only putting it together but also using the pieces as stand alone figures. I was amazed that he also would point to the same animals in his story books. Great buy, highly recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Super Cute! Bought this for our 18 month old nephew for Christmas and he loves it! I love how bright and colourful it is! I like that they stand up right on their own so once he grows out of the puzzle, he can still play with the pieces later on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! My 2.5 year old little girl loves this chunky puzzle, and she usually ends up using the animals in some story she acts out with them. The puzzle isn't that hard for her, but when she's done playing with the pieces, she likes that she knows where to put them when its time to clean up :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Puzzle! My son got this puzzle when he was 18 months old from his grandma and fell in love. After a few weeks he was able to do the puzzle by himself. And as he started talking it helped him to learn the names of the animals and their sounds. Now his little sister is enjoying the use of this and several more Melissa and Doug chunky puzzles. They hold up great! My kids like to put things in their mouth, and this puzzle has taken a beating and still looks good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality - does not hold up We've got two of these chunky puzzles. One of them is great, but the Safari puzzle is disappointing. The pieces are made of unsealed MDF, or particle board with stickers on top of them. They look great when new, but do not hold up well to infant/toddler play (i.e. chewing). The other chunky puzzle that we have is different in that the pieces are painted, and hold up much better. If purchasing one of these have a look at the side profile, if the puzzle pieces are painted all around it's probably fine. If the graphic is only on the top of the piece I'd stay away from it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My twins love this! This is a fun puzzle for my 8 month old twins. While they are still getting the hang of putting the pieces in the right spot, we use it together for matching, and they love to just pick up the pieces and play with them. They are chunky so I don't worry about them biting off a piece! Great toy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok Puzzle My 15 month old son got this for Christmas, and he likes to play with these animal pieces, but the quality is a little disappointing. The "wood" animals are some sort of wood composite board with paper images on top. The edges of the paper images have started to wear and tear up after just a couple weeks. I was also disappointed that the back of this "wood" puzzle is covered in a wood grained paper image. Poorly made in China from questionable products in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horizontal and Vertical play I especially love that the chunky animals can stand upright for vertical play in addition to their use as a puzzle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from multi use puzzle These chunky puzzle pieces stand up or fit into the puzzle. The animals can come "alive" and move around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Puzzle! My daughter received this puzzle for Christmas when she was 14 months old and plays with it everyday! Now, at 16 months she is able to put the animals in their proper places and loves to stand them up! I highly recommend this puzzle and will be purchasing others! :o)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My son loves this puzzle My 20 month old son has this puzzle and loves it. He likes to take the animals out and pretend that they are walking around. They will stand up on their own, so are more interactive than just a flat puzzle. He also loves to stack the animals like blocks, then knock them down. Love this puzzle so much that I bought the farm animal one for his stocking!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The Pieces are Not Painted! My daughter received a hand-me-down Melissa and Dough puzzle which we love. I was excited when she received another of these puzzles at her birthday party. She wanted to play with the puzzle as soon as it was opened, and since the pieces in our old Melissa and Doug puzzle was so durable, I told her she could take the alligator piece. Big mistake. These puzzle pieces were not painted (the old puzzle had beautifully painted pieces), they had paper stickers stuck over the wooden cut-outs. By the time I realized that these were not the same quality as the old puzzle, the alligator had taken a dive through the damp grass and the end of his nose had been rubbed off. Lovely! We still use use the puzzle, but my daughter plays with her old-style one much more as she enjoys using the pieces for imaginative play. I will not be buying any more Melissa and Doug products now since they are not the kind of durable and versatile products on which I choose to spend money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hours of entertainment My son is 10, but my neice is 2 and LOVES these types of puzzles. I've bought a couple of them for my home for when she visits or I babysit and am planning on buying her a couple to keep at her own house for Christmas. They've been a GREAT investment!
