I purchased this puzzle for my 97 year old grandfather who can no longer manage more than 12-14 pieces without assistance and cueing.

Pros: It is very difficult to find puzzles (or any other activities) for adults with cognitive deficits without resorting to childish images or pop culture icons that are usually completely irrelevant. This set of four puzzles, 12 pieces each, are colorful, durable, and though would certainly be enjoyed by kids, are not juvenile pictures. The fact that the sea creatures conjure up memories of the years he spent in Florida is a bonus for us. As his full time caregiver, I appreciate that he developed mastery with this set very quickly and can do them independently for about an hour every evening without getting frustrated or bored. (He is sitting with me at the kitchen table working on them right now as I write this review!) These puzzles have become part of our regular quiet time activity before bed.

Cons: The images on the box were too small for him to see easily for reference, but I assembled each puzzle and made a color photo copy for him to refer to as a guide while he is working. This was an easy solution. The box is great for storage, but the pieces must be 'just so' for the cover to fit, and it is impossible for him to slide it in place by himself. I am sure this would be an issue for most kids under five.

I've just ordered two more Melissa & Doug puzzles "in a box" to offer him more variety, though I think this may matter more to me than to him at this point. If you are looking for an activity for an adult with memory impairments or other cognitive limitations, this could be just the thing. Good luck to you.

I purchased these puzzles for my 3-yr old, and she LOVES them... they arrived today, and she has been playing with them non-stop!! While the puzzles are on the small side, the illustrations are beautiful, and the pieces are of a very good quality...I like the fact that the 12 pc puzzles are challenging without being overwhelming for her like a 24 or 48 pc puzzle would be!! I am definitely buying more of these!! So far, these are getting more playtime than her Dora dolls!!..lol...

Beautiful artwork on these puzzles and they are perfect for the 3-4 year old age group. My five year old still loves them but she is a puzzle fanatic. They come in a little box that they can easily be put away in, that helps if you are worried about losing pieces. The pieces are very durable and large enough to not be too complicated.

I purchased two sets of these puzzles for my son because he loves the 12 piece transportation M&D puzzle he already has. Putting four puzzles together with a divided area beneath the top of the box is a brilliant idea, but my son doesn't keep them separate from each other, so the pieces are all mixed together. This causes him to not bother with sorting them. I think it's a great product, but maybe I'll put it away until he's a bit older and less annoyed with "not having all of the pieces". (As an aside, he's 3.) As always with M&D products, the quality is terrific. I love their stuff, in general. Also, having the 12 piece transportation puzzle, I thought this 12 piece would be a similar size...it's not. I didn't look at the dimensions, but it's a much smaller puzzle than the other one that my son loves so much. It's absolutely worth buying, but wasn't perfect for my son like I thought it would be.

Bought a few of these for my 4yr old daughter for Xmas. She loves them, they are complicated enough that it takes her a few times, but not so complicated she gives up on it.

The quality of wood is exceptional for the price and you get multiple puzzles. I highly recommend this product for age groups 3-6.

I did not understand from the photo or description that each of "the box" contained four puzzles in tiny little squares in which the pieces have to fit just right to close the lid. That is very annoying. I thought I was buying a puzzle in a box, as in "framed," so there were edges a toddler could use to learn about side and corder pieces. However, being able to teach sorting by the symbols on the back of the pieces that indicate which puzzle they go with, is very nice, the quality is excellent and 2 year old granddaughter can sort them and put them together with almost no help at all, after the initial explanation/demonstration.

We bought this puzzle and several others for a family member
with Alzheimer's. She was diagnosed with AD 2 years ago
after it was starting to become obvious that something
negative was happening to her thought processes.

When she got her first puzzle, a 12 piece one, she said that
she used to do puzzles when she was a child, but they were
not as hard as this one was.

She has done several of these simpler puzzles of 12 to 45
pieces and seems to really enjoy them and she feels a
true sense of accomplishment after each one.

We would recommend these as entertainment for anyone
with dementia or other mental challenges.

I have three beefs with this product:

1. The lid doesn't have any way to keep it closed. It slides in place, but doesn't lock. This both makes me worry that it can accidentally come open in storage, and it makes it frustrating for my son when he's putting the puzzles together on it and he accidentally slides it.

2. Little wood splinters keep breaking off the bottom of the puzzle pieces. This is dangerous for little ones. Thankfully no one has gotten a sliver.

3. Some of the pictures on the top of the puzzle pieces have already started coming up; I'm going to have glue them back down.

My son does enjoy playing with these puzzles, and at only 12 pieces a puzzle it's something he can do by himself. But the product could be higher quality and better designed. I am disappointed that the pieces are coming apart after less than one month of play.
