Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor quality Unlike a lot of Melissa and Doug toys, this one was very poor quality. The wood splintered easily and the pictures chipped off. We ended up throwing it out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for Learning This puzzle is a fun and engaging way for pre-schoolers to learn their letters and sounds. We like that the pieces only fit together if they are correctly paired.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would not buy this item again I was very disappointed with this item. The display of counting the items should have been put in rows so it it easy to count especially the higher numbers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice puzzles for a toddler I am surprised of negative reviews for this product. My toddler puts with these puzzles together a lot. It is not complex to put two pieces together so she learn very quickly. It indeed helped her to learn letters and connect them to right pictures. Maybe it is not the best quality wood but it definitely helps quality of learning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love I love how children can count the images on the side and try matching it with the correct number on the puzzle piece. They can correct their own mistakes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great Idea, poor implementation. For a Melissa and Doug toy, the wood quality was disappointing. Got 3 splinters upon opening it, and the puzzle inside groove part started chipping upon play. Had to sand each piece by hand before giving it to my little one. Pros: Great colorful pictures. My little one loves counting and playing with this toy. Cons: Unfortunately she is unable to play by herself because the grooves are not a perfect fit, so some pieces sort of fit with the wrong combination. Also, would be nice if the pictures were drawn in even rows, right now it's hard for my little one to know which one she's already counted, and which one she has not counted yet. Can't just go from left to right up and down because it's all over the place. The concept is great, better quality of wood and better puzzle connections would help a lot.
