I've bought many Melissa and Doug toys and loved almost all of them. They're generally sturdy, colorful, educational and enjoyable.

However, no matter how attractive, fun and educational a toy may be, it's worthless if you can't use it. This puzzle (as well as the similar construction themed one) both fell apart when we opened them. And not in the way that a puzzle should.

The puzzle is constructed of lightweight laminate. However, there's a wide layer of ineffective glue between some layers. The puzzle feels more like balsa wood than the usual sturdy construction to which we're accustomed.

When our little guy unwrapped it this Christmas, he immediately wanted to play with it. So, I removed the shrink wrap and began to separate the pieces. Immediately, the laminated layers on the pieces (specifically the edges of the lumpy parts) began to separate and break off. Mostly the bottom and topmost layers.

Again, I usually find Melissa and Doug toys to be of high quality. Judging by the reviews here, others haven't had the same problem. I'm hoping that this is simply one small manufacturing batch that went amiss and not a new trend. However, I can only review based on my experience. So, although this puzzle gets high marks for fun, attractiveness and educational value, I can't give it more than 2 stars because of the construction and safety issues (small pieces of broken laminate that could pose a choking hazard).

This was my daughter's first jigsaw puzzle and she likes it. My only complaint is that because it isn't in a box, there's no copy of the image for her to look at as she is doing it. It would be nice to maybe include just a piece of paper that showed the image. If it were the same size as the puzzle, kids could even put it down within the frame and put the pieces on top of it... this would be a good way for them to learn to match the puzzle piece to the picture. I would imagine more 2 year olds could start doing jigsaw puzzles this way. But other than that, the quality is good and its a great starter puzzle.

This is our 2nd puzzle from Melissa and Doug and our 3 year old loves it!! Easy for him to work by himself and problem solve where the pieces go. These are great for several learning concepts and I have already ordered more for us and some for a gift!!

My sister gave this puzzle to my 3-year-old and within the first day the graphic was peeling off of at least half of the pieces under supervised use. I guess now "hand-crafted" is just marketing rhetoric.

We have many Melissa and Doug puzzles. Lately, though, I've been getting the more "complicated" puzzles for our autistic child, and the picture peels off the plywood BEFORE she begins to play. In several of the earlier purchases, I'd thought it was our fault. Not this time. The paper tore as I separated the pieces. Is the quality dropping in the Melissa and Doug line, or is it that the more pieces there are in the puzzle, the more poorly the laminate adheres? Either way, I am disappointed, and will be returning this item. Poor hippo. He lost his mouth and grassy snacks.

My two year old boy loves this puzzle. It is designed to be durable and to allow him to figure it out. There aren't ambiguous pieces. He can do this 24 piece puzzle all by himself. And he loves learning the animal's names. Melissa and Doug always make great products and this is no exception. We have several of their puzzles.

I got this puzzle for my almost 2 year old. He LOVES puzzles but had moved past the 9 piece board puzzles. I was looking for something that would help him transition from 9 piece board puzzles to the 25 piece free form puzzles.

The puzzle pieces are wood and there is a wood tray/border the puzzle fits into. When we first got the puzzle I pulled out sections at a time, increasing the size of the section each time. By the end of a couple of days, he was doing the puzzle without assistance. The animals are lovely and identifiable. The number of different colored animals makes this puzzle easier than the Melissa and Doug 24 piece dinosaur puzzle (which we also have but he struggles with). The pieces have become much easier to pull apart and fit together as the puzzle gets loved.

The pieces have stood up to tons of use, stepping on them, throwing them, biting them, peeing on them (twice...oh the joys of potty training boys). I love that I can scatter the pieces and get some time to myself to cook dinner or have an adult conversation. Once he conquers the dinosaur puzzle I think we'll try out free form puzzles.

Purchased to be durable puzzle that would last. Graphics glued on cheap wood, same result as cardboard puzzle. Would not recommend this puzzle.
