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.

I will admit: I have only owned this for one day. But, I uploaded some pictures to show the overall quality and construction for anyone who is interested in details. The individual puzzle pieces are a sturdy 5mm thick. The puzzle board itself is 1cm thick. I love how the puzzle *pieces* say the name of the state, whereas the puzzle *board* lists only the state capitals. Kids can't just match up words, they have to think about what they are doing, and...so did I. :P You can't put a state piece in its place without noticing its capital. Great way to learn!

As for the east coast pieces, Main has its own piece. Vermont and New Hampshire share a piece; as do MA, Rhode Island, and Connecticut. New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and DC all share one piece. Pennsylvania has its own, as does NY. The grouping of the eastern states is great for 2 reasons. One, the pieces are bigger and less likely to be lost. And two, little fingers would have a hard time maneuvering those tiny states into place if they weren't grouped.

I like how there is a compass on the puzzle and how the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans are labeled, as well as the gulf of Mexico. Lakes Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie and Ontario are also listed *on the board*. The only things I wish the puzzle had were a depiction of where Mexico and Canada are, as well as some way to represent where the major mountain ranges are. But then, it may look too cluttered if it had all of that.

There is a nice color finish to the puzzle board and pieces, however I can't say how well it would hold up to a toddler scratching/biting it or water being spilled on it. But for my 8 year old: it looks perfect in every way. Melissa and Doug have won me over yet again.

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.

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.

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.

I could tell when this arrived, the pieces just didn't quite fit together correctly. The outside edges of the puzzle also didn't quite match the edges of the pieces. I had to take off the wrapper and make sure a child could put it back together. Not really what I expected from a Melissa & Doug product.
