The puzzle pieces are not hand-painted; they have paper stickers glued over unfinished wooden cut-outs. My daughter has had this puzzle for two weeks and the stickers are already wearing off. I used to be a fan of Melissa & Doug, but I will not be buying any of their products in the future if they are now producing this kind of cheap junk.

I want to say first that I LOVE Melissa and Doug products. They are very durable and grow with my son developmentally. My problem with this product is that what I received was very clearly NOT a Melissa and Doug puzzle. It very much resembled one until I picked up the puzzle pieces and discovered that they were nothing more than raw wood cut-outs w/ stickers on top! There was not one drop of paint on the pieces! The board was nicely painted and has the Melissa & Doug 'logo' on it like the others that I have, so I am not sure at all what went wrong w/ the pieces.

I really wanted to like this toy! My son seems to like it so far but we've only had it for a few hours and I know it's going to fall apart soon. I'm an architect and can tell you these pieces are not handpainted. They are printed pieces of computer generated images adhered to the softest wood known as MDF. There is nothing hand made about this product- it has been laser cut and printed. I could have made this for two dollars! A beautiful concept but very poor execution-- not handmade at all! Spend your money on the more expensive wooden toys made with safe materials and longer lasting better sanded wood. I'm taking this product back!

My 2 year old daughter really loves this puzzle. She loves matching the shapes to the spots on the puzzle and she is also learning the names of the safari animals. These pieces do stand up on their own and my daughter likes to play with them separately from the puzzle. It is one of her favorite toys right now.

I'm not sure if they changed the product somewhere along the line, or if people were getting knock off items, but our puzzle is painted wood not stickers. It appears to be very durable.

My daughter received this for Christmas just before her 1st birthday. She loved the colors and enjoyed putting the animals on the board (with some help of course). The chunky pieces were very easy for her to grab and hold. She liked to crawl with the pieces and push them on the floor (crawling with them on the tile floor caused some wear on the paint though). She also liked to chew on them (which we tried to discourage), but didn't wear off the paint very much. This puzzle helped her learn/recognize colors and animals. She's now nearly 2 and still likes the puzzle. She also really likes the bug one that is similar to this one.

Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful puzzle, extremely durable, with smooth edges, and delightfully fun. I purchased it for my granddaughter who just turned two. Her speech therapist immediately spied it among her toys and used it as her educational toy for that session, so there is obvious learning value. A nice change of pace from farm animals and shapes in the learning curve.

I have had this puzzle for my children for three years and they have both loved it. The pieces are large, easy to manipulate, and very cute. It is also very durable, as it still looks nearly new. However, I seem to have the version in which all the pieces are PAINTED. There are NO paper stickers on the top on the pieces (though I do have one Melissa and DOug puzzle with stickers on the pieces (the musical instrument sound puzzle)). You might want to call first to see which version you will be getting, because the all-wood puzzles are definately more durable.

My son got this puzzle when he was 11 months old. At first he just loved taking the animals out and looking at them. Now he is 12 months and tries to put them back in. He loves playing with this toy. It seems very durable since he drops the pieces all the time. It is good for teaching animal names and also the same pictures are underneath each animal so it makes it a little easier for the baby to figure out the orientation. Great product! I will definitely purchase more similar puzzles by this company for him.
