Rated 5 out of 5 by from For toddlers and preschoolers Its very easy for your toddler to figure out how to operate each locks. It's nice to build a story with each door and the animals behind it. Only downside is the latches are hard and sticks out, requires adult supervision.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A different puzzle This is a great quality toy. My son (20 months) loves it. He can't yet open all doors by himself but will figure them out soon. He loves the animals behind the doors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will be buying more as my grandson gets older I have a 13 month old grandson that loves latches and open and shutting doors so he was really happy and all smiles when I gave him the board. He plays with it on a daily bases and loves looking for the animals hidden behind the doors.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My boy loves it, but it broke My boy loves to play with it. It is a little bit more challenging than the regular toddler puzzles. However, with the time, the hinges got damaged and some broke.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Busy Keeper! My daughter was gifted this for Christmas and it has been great at keeping her busy! She loves to open the doors to see the animals behind them. She has started to count while playing with this and it has helped her develop her fine motor skills. Some of the latches are more difficult than others more so because they have more moving parts and are quite stiff. This may get better the more it is used. All in all I think it is a very durable and great quality toy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice idea This is cute and durable. My son only plays with it for minutes at a time, but I can see how some kids would spend longer periods playing with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great idea and want to love this toy but.. The idea of this toy is fantastic and my son loves it and gets so excited when he plays with it but it is not very durable. he got some slobber on it (as all babies do with their toys) and the picture is just glued onto the wood and is already started peeling and lifting, keep in mind we have only had this toy for a couple hours, a toy this price and recommended for babies who put their mouths on everything should be made a little bit better...... overall my son likes it but I am not impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting, Entertaining and Useful Once our 2-year old opened this gift, he was not interested in anything else. A month later it's the first thing he runs for when he gets up and he returns to it many times a day - no latch can keep him out!
Date published: 2017-01-14
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a big hit. Some of the latches are hard to work/turn. My daughter played with this one only once. Maybe when she get's older, she will like it. She is 26 months old now.
Date published: 2017-01-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for dexterity My little one loves opening and closing the doors to find the animals. She cannot open them all yet which is good as she will continue to grow into it.
Date published: 2017-01-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun for everyone. This latches board is amazing! All different ages, including parents, wanted to play with it. By far the top gift we gave this year!
Date published: 2017-01-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This toy is so versatile! This learning tool is very appropriate for a wide range of development/ages. I purchased it for a fifteen month old, who will play with this for a long time! As fine motor skills become more developed, she will be able to master more complicated latches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun to Explore Little one loves to explore the different types of latches,Takes a while for them to figure out how to undo the different locks. Makes them think. It's a favourite at school.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Fine Motor And Learning Board Awesome latch board. Our daughter is 18 months old and loves it. She really enjoys this type of activity, and loves to open the latches and the different doors. It is a great tool to learn numbers one to six, as well as colors. Great quality and sturdy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would definitely buy this product again My 2 1/2 year old grandson loves all of the different latches and locks and then the animals hiding behind each door is an added fun bonus!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can grow into this toy, lots of learning from this board! This is great! My 18 month old likes to open the doors once the latches are all off, so he will definitely be growing into this toy. He likes the clanging of the locks, the colors and the animals behind each door. Super fun and multi-learning tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great item! My son really enjoys this. A great little toy for fine motor development. Nice pictures. Itvalsonworks on some colour and number recognition. My 2.5 year old doesn't play with it for long during a single sitting, but always gets excited when we take it out of our toy closet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A hit! We got this for my sons second birthday & a year later this one still gets pulled out and played with. At $35 it is expensive so I highly recommend waiting until you have a coupon to use or there is a sale on Melissa and Doug products. Otherwise I highly recommend this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All kids love this toy! Everyone who visit gravitates to this toy, from the age of 12 months to 6 year old kids. Good quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most popular toy we have! I bought this for my 4 yr old non-verbal autistic nephew. He loves it! So does his 6 yr old brother, my 3 teens, and my mother. Who would have known that one toy would have them all fighting to play with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great toy! My 4 year old Grandson loves it... A great way to learn about various locks and latches
Date published: 2016-03-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Teacher Approved! This product is meant for 3-year-olds and above. However, it doesn't have choking hazards, so I chose to use it with my 8-month-old while he has close supervision. Within one week, he has learned to unlatch 3 of the 6 doors. He never passes up a chance to play with this puzzle! The various latches are perfect for fine motor strengthening and problem solving skills. They make the child use pincer grasp, movements in all four directions, and turning 180 degrees at the wrist like one would to turn a door knob. Even if the child needs help with or has mastered the latches, he can still practice colors, animals, shapes, numerals, and counting. Overall, it's a toy a child can grow with for a long time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too Realistic - Not for Special Needs So many autistic & special kids Just leave their house and wander down the street. Why make it easier by teaching them how to unlock the window or un-chain the door? Found this toy in my sons preschool classroom and insisted it was removed. Sorry- high quality just not for us!
Date published: 2013-11-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple But Very Interesting Toy A great learning tool. My 3 year old great-grandson loves it, as most kids like to lock and unlock things. Animals, colors and numbers easy to teach. Will be handing down to another great-grandson expected in July. Saw this in doctors office and was immediately impressed so went online to find and order one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Puzzle Board This is a nice toy to give your kiddo when you want them to have some self directed play time. No pieces to get lost, no batteries to replace, no loud beeping or music. Ahhh. Good toy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I couldn't believe my eyes When I saw my 2-yr-old granddaughter playing with this at CDC I was appalled. I gave them my opinion, and now I give it to you. We put locks on things to keep the little ones out ... away from dangerous items ... out of refrigerators, cupboards, medicine cabinets, storage areas, gun cabinets, etc. ... and THIS teaches them how to unlock all the locks we use to try to keep them safe. What were you thinking?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun for all ages! We gave this latch board to our daughter for Christmas last year after she played with it at a friend's house. Even though she is only 18 months old (and it says it's for 3 and up), she has been able to find a lot of ways to play with it. We use it to work on color and animal recognition and she's actually gotten pretty good at the latches too!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from oops..How'd he get that not the best thing to teach toddlers how to get out or in to things that are locked by these options. big fan of all others though. my 2 yr old loved it but now mommy has to be careful that he can now open many locks that used to keep him safe.
Date published: 2012-02-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect gift! My 2 year old just loves this toy. It is the first he grabs in the morning and the last thing he touches before bed. Some nights we need to hide the board so he will go to bed. He will sit forever and play, and because of the pictures and numbers it has also helping teach him numbers and counting. He carries it around so much that he needs a handle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So much fun! I got this for my son, and even though he's only /almost/ 2, it is one of his all time favorites. he likes me to hold the board for him while he works at the latches. he can't quite get the window latch, but most of the others are doable. The one we have is slightly different, it appears to be based on farm scenery, but at any rate, it's awesome. Totally cute.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this!! The latch on house 2 is difficult to turn. Maybe if it had more of a tab on it or maybe a rubber gripper it would be more manageable. My kids STILL love this toy even after all these years. My two year old has a GREAT time with it even though it says 3+.
Date published: 2011-02-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wrong Age recommendation Love the product but not for average 3yr olds as recommended. Our daughter received this for her 1st birthday and it was a hit from about 15 months to 36 months. Too simple for a 3+ kid. Exceptional toy for a one or two year old.
Date published: 2011-01-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for toddler and for special needs My 12 month old and 2 year old love this board. We purchased it for their great-grandfather (who has had a significant stroke). He likes this board very much, and it seems to entertain him and keep his mind busy. I think this board would be a great gift for someone with ahlzheimer's or dementia. Of course, toddlers are fascinated by it as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a Must Have! This is a wonderful puzzle! I first saw it when one of my friends had gotten it for her classroom, I had to have one too. I've had mine for about 5 months and it is still in great shape. I figured it being in a room with 22 preschoolers it would get broke fast, but not yet. The only thing that is diffcult is some of the locks aren't the easiest to open, you may need to help the children. But other then that it is GREAT!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Fine Motor Toy! My 2 year old loves this! She quickly learned how to manipulate the latches. It's also great for learning colors, numbers, animals and animal sounds! Every preschool classroom should have one of these on their manipulatives shelf!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great toy, but difficult too The latch on house 2 is difficult for even an adult to master. Friction on the latch seems a little high for a 3 year old.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love this for the car! We got this for our 18 month old.(Yes, we know the label stated for 3+, but he is very bright!) Brady LOVES his puzzle! It is great for in the car. He can rest it comfortably on the sides of his car seat and all the pieces are attached. It is GREAT! We keep it in the car at all times. He asks for it as soon as we get him strapped in his car seat. Great product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My kids love this puzzle My 2 year old loved this from the minute he touched it. He quickly learned how the latches worked, but is still perfecting how to open a few on his own. My Five year old also likes playing with the latches. Every child that visits loves to try it out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Escape! All of the latches and locks work just as they do in the real world. The grand kids like to play and find the characters behind the doors. The board is very realistic and could be used by parents and educators helping children adapt to the world around them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good product but has glitches I think all your products are great! My daughter is 16 months and always runs to play with your toys first. I just find that for this toy the latches on house 5 get stuck on house 6. Also the latch on house 2 is very diffcult to open even for me. Other wise I think it is a very well made toy. thanks
