Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy to have purchased. I purchased this for a special needs child. His family has said it is helping with his grasping therapy. Also, helping with speech.....said the word sheep, etc.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from My son love it but......... If you put the wrong animal piece over the opening, it still plays that sound. This design flaw needs to be corrected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great puzzle I gave this to my neighbor for his second birthday he loves doing the puzzle the sounds help him find the correct space and seem to provide the extra push to continue working on the puzzle.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Makes noises when not in use. Its annoying how it makes noises all the time , even when not in use! nights when my son is asleep, etc..its just too creepy! And when he puts together Dog, Cow makes the sounds instead of the dog! i think it is too light sensitive and poor design. (Or i am not sure if the piece i received was faulty)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT puzzle Let me start by saying this thing quit working for us....AFTER 10 YEARS! We bought this for our son when he was under a year old and it has traveled with us over to West Africa and lived over here in the heat and rains for almost 10 years and used and loved by all three of our kids. It FINALLY gave up the ghost the other day. Now I have to hide it from my 3 year old so she might forget about it and not cry missing it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from surface should be sealed Any moisture on the surface of the product causes the print to delaminate. Looks good but not good for kids. Also makes it hard to clean.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Better without the sound The puzzle is a neat idea, but the makers put very little thought into the practicality. Thus, for short, supervised use, it's not a bad toy. Of course, there are a million other things you could purchase that your child will love and you won't regret owning. Biggest problem, as others have mentioned, is that there is no off switch. If your child takes off with a piece and fails to place it back in its spot, this puzzle will sound off all night. And it is loud. Lord help you if there is more than one piece missing as there will be a chorus of "animal sounds" emanating throughout your house. You'll notice I put animal sounds in quotation marks. That is because most of the sounds do not mimic the conventional utterance associated with the corresponding animal. Very odd. So, unless you plan on playing with the toy exclusively with your child, or you keep a screwdriver handy, this may not be the puzzle for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute but... Really cute puzzle my mini me enjoys finding the animals and hearing the sounds. More often than not with a 2 year old a piece goes missing from time to time. With that being said as the sun or light shifts in mini me's room the animal sounds randomly go off. Sometimes it just goes off with all pieces in place too. Great product I just wish it had an on/off switch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Puzzle The kids really love the sounds that this puzzle makes. They love to mimic it and it helps them to learn the animals & their sounds :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Neat concept, poorly executed I love the concept of this puzzle that it is interactive and calls out the animal sounds, but my issue with it is, the sounds will go off when any puzzle piece touches any of the spaces. (i.e. when you put the pig near the opening for the cat, the puzzle "meows". That is dissappointing! So it really can't qualify as educational in my opinion.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What's with you people? Would be a nice puzzle if it didn't make noises.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing This seemed like a great idea, but there were two big problems with the implementation. First, the sound quality is poor, at least in ours, and the noises made do not sound like the animals. Second, sounds are triggered by a photoreceptor (light sensor). Consequently, if the puzzle has not been completed and the room gets darker, either because of reduced sunlight or because we turn off the lights, we start hearing animal noises. Actually, this part is kind of funny, but could become an annoyance, wake a light sleeper, etc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Puzzle My 14 month old is really facinated by this puzzle. She pulls the pieces out and puts them all back in. The only down side to this puzzle is it does not have an off switch. It will randomly "moo" or "meow" when you have not touched it in around 10 minutes. We had to take the batteries out of it to shut it off. Great puzzles, disappointed it does not havve an off switch.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy with product My daughter was given 3 sound puzzles for Christmas and the sound doesn't work properly. I went out and BOUGHT and put in 2 AAA batteries since they were not included. Sometimes the sounds will go off for a different animal or don't work at all. I like how my daughter can use the puzzle to learn animal names. But am Not happy with this expensive educational puzzle since it won't make sounds with the batteries in. How can my daughter learn when the cow makes noise for the cat?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible I was so excited about purchasing this puzzle because of the sounds. Three of the animals do not work after one night of playing with it and the sounds are terrible, very muffled. The [...] brand sound puzzle which was cheaper sounds so much better! And none of the animal sounds have died.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed buyer I agree with the last review. Disappointed that the puzzle would sound when anything was placed over the animal spot--correct animal or not. Also, at times, the puzzle would not even sound when piece was place over or in it's correct spot. I have heard people raving about this line of toys and at this point, I am not impressed yet. I am glad that I bought it for my daughter before purchasing it as a gift for another child. Not the educational puzzle I thought it would be.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Such a great idea for a wooden puzzle! This is such an amazing idea! Much better than the boring wooden puzzles that make no noise. My 2 year old daughter absolutely loves it! The only thing that I don't like is that you can just touch your hand on the animals and they will make noise or if the wrong animal is in the wrong place, it still makes an animal noise. Overall, I love the quality and the product is genius!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great puzzle but annoying sound! This is a great and educational toy and my daughter loved playing with it but the sounds are so annoying! It is so hard to hear what kind of animal it is supposed to sound like because there is a strange grating noise that comes out at the same time, and it isn't the batteries. And it goes off by itself at all times during day and night, with or without the puzzle pieces in the slots. It is so annoying and terrifying at times during the night!! I guess I could take the batteries out everytime she is done playing but that would be a hassle. I have bought two toys from this company and both have been just a little dissapointing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sometimes animals make wrong sounds "Each happy farm animal "sounds off" in its own voice when the animal puzzle piece is placed correctly in the puzzle board" is an inaccurate description because the puzzle piece doesn't necessarily have to be placed correctly. If my 19-month old daughter is placing the pieces, sometimes she'll be holding an animal piece over a different animal hole, and it will make the animal hole's noise as if she found a match. That's disappointing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great puzzle but... The day after my son opened the puzzle it stopped working properly. The rooster became the dominant animal on the farm and sounded whenever any of the pieces were put in their proper places. Therefore, the cow, the dog and all the other animals were all making the rooster noise. I contacted the company and they apologized and are going to be shipping me a new puzzle [...]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst toy EVER. I was surprised that with a name like Melissa and Doug, that this was such a poor quality toy. The electronic device they use to 'sense' the puzzle piece in place are poorly put in with nothing shielding them from the elements....hammering, drool, etc. The puzzle pieces react ( I can only assume) with light sensors. All of the pieces need to be in place or the animals will cry out for no reason. They react to the TV flicker, the shadow of her playing with another toy, someone walking by it, even in the middle of the night, we can hear it going off in a pitch black room. I can't stand this toy, I am shocked that Melissa and doug would ruin a classic like this. We took the batteries out and now she'll pay attention to it to some degree.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from special needs children I am an occupational therapist in the school setting. I love these puzzles and the reinforcement/motivation they give special needs children for so many reasons. The only wish I have is that when the attention of a child is difficult to maintain, sometimes they put the pieces over the wrong spot and the sound is reinforcing still. I wish it could be where the right piece has to interact only with the right hole in order to make the sound work. Otherwise I love these puzzles!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product! We bought several of these puzzles for my daughter, now 2 years old, and she LOVES them. We play with them everyday. The only negative thing about these puzzles is the sound is sometimes triggered by lights going on and off in our house (we had a few creepy mooing cows at 2 am!)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun and eduational My son loves the sounds the animals make. Although he is only 13 months, he can point to the correct animals if we make the sound mostly because he has played with the puzzle for several months.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good learning toy Very nice toy. Sometimes the sounds go off for other animals for no reason. But a great learning toy and interactive!
