A fun learning tool!

I love how the puzzle *pieces* say the name of the state, whereas the puzzle *board* lists only the state capitals.

Like most puzzles of this type, you don't really get 50 pieces -- some of the New England states get lumped together on one piece so you won't be losing Rhode Island as soon as you open the thing. And the cutting lines sometimes fudge the geographical boundaries a bit. So what? The kids won't care. A puzzle is hands-down the best way to teach a grade-schooler his state capitols, and this particular one is as sturdy & well-made as some I've seen for three times the price.

My husband bought this puzzle for our 2 year old daughter. He and I had similar puzzles when we were children. She loves puzzles and this is her absolute favorite. She plays with it at least 3 times every day (for the past 3 months). She knows all the states and the little factoid pictures on each state. She even has fun telling us what state her food looks like (i.e. a bitten piece of cheese becomes Utah, etc.) I highly recommend this puzzle for all ages. The only downside to the puzzle is that the little Northeastern states are lumped together - so I have to review those with her each time. BUt now she knows them! If you want your child to excel at US Geography, invest in this puzzle! If my 2 year old can learn all 50 states, anyone can!!

My 4 1/2 year old enjoys this puzzle and she is learning the state names. Unfortunately the puzzle pieces have been poorly cut, and the pieces do not all correspond to the underlying state shapes as drawn on the map. A chunk of Virginia, for instance, is on the Kentucky piece. Some of the NE states are lumped together and have been cut so that it is hard to understand which way to insert the pieces into the frame.

It's okay overall, but being a detail oriented person, I think that a little more care could have been put into the cutting and shapes of the states.

It's been hard to find puzzles that keep my 2 year olds attention and challenges her. After one week, she mastered this puzzle. It's rated for 5 and up, but if you have a very inquisitive younger toddler, don't let the age it's rated for steer you away. Now, we can challenge her in different ways. She's learning which states relatives live in and the state capitals. Such a good quality puzzle, too.

First let me start with the cons - the pieces are not cut precisely along state lines, and the pictures clutter up the states. Could you find a better state puzzle with nice knobs on each piece and no "crap" drawn on the pieces? Sure! But be prepared to shell out $50-$100.

For ~$10, this is a great substitute! After a month or so of practice, my puzzle-obsessed 2 year old can do it on his own, naming most every state as he places them in. It's sparked great conversation for us, as he wants to know more about each state (who in our family lives there, what states it's near, etc.), even when he's not around the puzzle. When the pieces are removed, the base of the puzzle has the state outlines drawn in simple black lines, so it's easy to match up by shape, even if you don't start with an edge piece. I don't even mind that a few NE states are grouped together - the pieces are small enough as it is, and separating DE from MD or VT from NH would make them impossibly tiny.

I bought this toy because I'm trying to buy items that were manufactured in the USA this holiday season. It says that it's origin is the USA, but when it arrived it's marked made in China.

Overall, this puzzle is sturdy and my children are enjoying it. However, I rate this only 3 stars due to poor workmanship and sliding pieces. I expected the pieces to lock together but found that they only slide next to each other. My 5 and 7 year olds are able to piece the puzzle together anyway, but they do have to fix the pieces frequently after they've already been placed. Also, each piece is not cut exactly along state lines. For example, Oklahoma and Texas overlap such that part of Texas is on the Oklahoma piece. This is also true for Kentucky and Virginia, Tennessee and North Carolina, and Nevada and Arizona. This just seems like poor workmanship, which surprises me for a Melissa and Doug product. I will not be returning this puzzle as my kids are enjoying it, but I would not purchase it again.

Our 2.5 year old loves this puzzle. He enjoys learning the states and reciting them back as we search for its resting place. Our favorite state is "me-tah", which we constantly correct is "Utah". It's colorful and has the capital of each state under the piece. A good puzzle for 3+ (because of the small NE states).
