Rated 4 out of 5 by from Neat little puzzle. Same thing as pots and pans. I am waiting to give the gift to my grandson on his birthday in August. But, it looks like something he will love.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice idea, but it doesn't work properly I really liked the look and idea of this puzzle. Unfortunately I am disappointed though. The sounds go off randomly, even if the pieces are nowhere near the puzzle. Also, when using the pieces even if you put the wrong one in, the sound still goes off which actually makes it very confusing when trying to teach animal sounds.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Low quality, would not buy another sound puzzle The sounds stopped working for most of the animals after the first day and now it just randomly makes noise even if you're not playing with it. I'll be sticking with the battery-free versions from now on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Decals have worn off a few from lots of use. Don’t be shocked if you hear animal noises spontaneously. It goes off on its own.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work properly It all started when my 2 year old put it in her mouth and the wetness definitely penitrated the picture of the puzzle. Then, the funny/creepy part... every time we would switch a light on or off in our house, the puzzle would make one of the animal sounds. Then, every time we would walk by, it would make an animal sound. The sounds seem to be magnetically powered, (not like a push clip) so sometimes the baby will try and put the puzzle in the wrong hole and it will still make that holes animal noise. Some times it doesn't make a noise at all. If it does make a noise at the right time, if she doesn't wait to put the next animal in it's hole... then that animal won't make it's sound (it won't interrupt one animal for the next). The purpose of teaching the noises is completely lost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality is ok. My toddler loves the Melissa and Doug sound puzzles. He always takes out all the ones he has and plays with them for hours. Great way to learn about animal sounds without sitting in front of a piece of technology. Quality wise it could be better. When the kids play with the lights on and leave the puzzle pieces out, the puzzle starts making noises as soon as the lights turn off. I already almost pooped my pants because of it several times when my son left his puzzle in the living room.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I would not buy again It's the most annoying toy I have purchased. If all the pieces are not in the board will continue to make noise so if you are putting your child to sleep every piece must be in or you need to put it in another room as it has no off button. You can take batteries out but seriously who wants to do that everytime . And if you lose one piece of the puzzle it will constantly make noise. Sometimes the animals don't even make the correct corresponding noises and they don't even sound realistic . I though my child would love this but it drives me crazy. Batteries are out so it was a waste of money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from fun puzzle, but.... If the pieces aren't put back in when it's put away, it will make the animal sounds randomly! It's cute, but the child has to remember to wait a bit before putting each piece in or they won't sound. The kids seem to really like it anyway

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ok It's OK, but the sounds are a bit annoying and sometimes the animals make sound without being played with. Strange!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun for my preschoolers! This is my second Zoo puzzle. The animal sounds seem distorted in this puzzle compared to the one I used 3 years ago. My preschool students love all my Sound Puzzles!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A little loud My son was very excited to get this puzzle. He had already worked through the toddler puzzles an needed a bit of a challenge. This puzzle is perfect for those who need a few more pieces to increase difficulty. The problem arose when he solved the first piece, the lion. The sound of each animal is quite loud and frightened my son to the point of tears. We kept the puzzle and he does interact and look at it but refuses to 'solve' the puzzle himself due to the loudness. Ours looks a bit different from the one above so perhaps we have an older version. On the whole I would recommend it but be forewarned about the loudness.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good for a very young toddler Love the sounds that the animals make and makes my toddler more interested in playing and figuring out the puzzle. The only thing I don't like is that because it's either light or motion sensitive, a lion or crocodile "mysteriously" yells out if one of the pieces isn't put back. It has scared both myself and my little one a couple of times as we've been upstairs and we hear a lion roaring down in the basement LOL Another thing that wasn't great is that if you place any animal piece over another animal it will make the sound, which doesn't really teach a child anything I also find that this type of puzzle will be way too juvenile for a child older than 2.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sounds often fail to work My son received it as a birthday gift. It worked good at first, but soon the noises weren't working properly. Sometimes only some of them would work. Other times, none of the noises would work. I tried changing the batteries, but it didn't help.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great introduction to puzzles We loved the sound puzzles; they are a great way to get kids interested in puzzles. And the quality is great. Only issue is that if you don't put the pieces back in, then it sometimes make the noise on its own (usually at 2am)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Okay puzzle Makes great fun sounds but very sensitive. Make sure all the pieces are back in the puzzle before turning off lights or the whole thing starts going off. #plumreview

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Soooo disappointed!!!! I purchased this last week. The animal sounds are not consistent. I changed the batteries twice. Adorable concept but very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grand daughter loves this! My grand daughter loves trying to get the pieces back into their spot in order to hear the animal sounds. Very cute!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed My son loved listening to the animals and taking the pieces off the puzzle. At least he did until it stopped working after 1 week. We exchanged that puzzle for another, and that one stopped working not even after 5 hours! Batteries were tested and tempered with to insure it wasn't a simple fix. I'm incredibly disappointed by the technology of the puzzles. 2 strikes is enough, I won't be buying sound puzzles by Melissa and Doug any time soon. Very sad.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from GREAT toy when it decides to work properly My one-year-old grandson loves to place the pieces so he can hear and mimic the sounds, but there is a lot of frustration because it doesn't always work. This thing has very erratic behavior. Place a piece, no sound. Repeat, no sound. Repeat, appropriate sound. Dump them all out, place all pieces - no sound from any. Try that again - all works fine. Sometimes it all works fine right from the start. And yes, the batteries are fresh! Maybe we just go a defective one, but it is fun for him when it works right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We Love This Puzzle! This was my son's very first Melissa & Doug product and we still put it together at least once a day! He loves the animal noises and it has helped him differentiate between the animals and the sounds they make. Great Product! Would highly recommend to others!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing Sometimes the animals make sounds when we put the pieces into the puzzle, but more often than not, they do not. It's still a cute puzzle, just disappointing. I expected more out of the quality.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It makes sound on its own We bought this puzzle this weekend, and I don't know how, but every time we turn off the lamp in the living room (which is the room's only source of light, so it always has to be on), the puzzle makes sound. I think it's the zebras. It is very freaky. We keep the puzzle and its pieces completely separate from each other at night when we aren't using the puzzle (puzzle on the table, pieces on the floor or chair) and every single day and night when we turn the lamp off, the puzzle makes noise at us. It has frightened us on more than one occasion. Now I know to expect it. How is this happening? I would like to return this puzzle to the store if they will accept it and get a non-sound puzzle. Also, the puzzle makes sound when you bring the pieces close to their spots, they don't even have to be inside the puzzle exactly. My daughter cannot get the pieces in since she is only 19 months old, but she makes the puzzle roar and squwak plenty while moving the pieces around on the board near to where they are supposed to fit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very bad and unnatural sounds! we like animals and my child played just with them without using sounds which is really terrible.
Date published: 2013-02-01
Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Bit Disappointing The puzzle is fun and my son loves all the animal noises but...when you hold the Elephant over the spot for the Lion (or any other animal) it makes the Lion sound (or the parrot or alligator or monkey etc). So it is not really teaching the kids proper sounds and it makes nosies even when the pieces are not back in the "correct" places.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work I was traveling to visit my granddaughter in another state. We stopped at a mall on the way and I saw this puzzle. Over the years I have purchased MANY Melissa and Doug products so I had no concerns about the quality. The puzzle was shrink wrapped in plastic so I did not try it out in the store ... but, why would one need to try out a Melissa & Doug product? I paid cash, and the following day when we arrived at my grandchild's house, I was excited to give her the new puzzle. Sadly, it did not work. We checked/changed batteries ... I mean there were four adults in the room with many degrees ... it did not work. I lost the receipt ... but, I wouldn't be back in the city where i purchased it anyway. I phoned the company (Melissa & Doug) and told the story. They NEVER responded. I was willing to discuss ways to return the puzzle, but, with no reply from M & D, the puzzle just became another wood puzzle. I was VERY DISAPPOINTED in Melissa and Doug.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A good idea, but, oh dear!! half the time the sounds don't work. Other times half of it works / the wrong sounds come out. Just occasionally... success!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 2 year old loves this... My 2 year old daughter loves this puzzle. She knows the names of all the animals on the puzzle. I plan to buy more of these puzzles for her. The only con is that my daughter chews on some of the pieces, but that is an issue with my child, not the puzzle, hence the 5 star rating :).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stopped working after only 2 days I have to give this a very bad review because after just two days the puzzle broke. Either the noise that is made is from the wrong animal or no sound sounds at all. I would not recommend this toy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Farm Sound Puzzle The best puzzle around. This is my third puzzle bought for my grandchildren. Fun to watch them learn and say the sounds.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Seriously needs an off switch Generally a fun toy - our 22 month old likes the sounds and placing the animals in their place. From a parent perspective - it needs an off switch. Turning on (or turning off) a light sets off the sounds - not good when you have just put your little one to bed.
