This is from all external appearances a great little puzzle. It's certainly a great concept for a 'first' puzzle, with it's bright fun aesthetically-appealing dinosaurs and easy-match puzzle board. It is certainly educational, and when I bought it I felt pretty good about my kids playing with it.

We own the older style - painted 'wooden' pieces. When I think wooden, I think solid wood, which is what these pieces appear to be. They have a nice heavy feel to them, and when thoroughly coated in paint, considering the false advertising, you'd really have no reason to expect otherwise.

Enter time and a little rough tossing around of the puzzle pieces, and as the paint begins to chip away - the dinosaur puzzle was the worst of the three chunky puzzles we own in terms of rapid paint loss. As the paint wears away, it becomes apparent that these puzzle pieces are nothing but pressed paper-like sawdust material. When revealed beneath the chipped-off paint, this dry, dusty substance easily flakes off where it can get into little mouths and become part of the general household dust.

Okay, so Melissa and Doug fudged a little on their description, which was prominently displayed on the packaging for our puzzle. What might have been wood once upon a time is now thinly pressed layers of sawdust and resin, but it was wood in a previous life, and that still counts, right? It's intentionally deceptive marketing, but does any of that really matter in the practical sense?

I think it does.

Medium density fiberboard (MDF) is nasty stuff. Containing a higher resin-to-wood ration than any other pressed wood product, MDF emits VOCs for at least a few months after manufacture and emits urea formaldehyde for the duration of its life.

This product is ok as long as your kid is extremely gentle with toys. My son isn't, and the puzzle reflects that - lots of the edges/paint have chipped off. Good for calm children!

When my daughter was a baby, we bought her the jungle animals puzzle and loved, loved it. They were painted all the way around and so smooth. These, however, have the color on the front only and have rough, chipboard-like sides exposed. I was sad, I have to admit. But, it's still cute.

Warning! This puzzle does not fit in standard puzzle racks! Also small children who like to put things in their mouths will make short work of the edges and the pictures will start to wear off. Two years and up.

I was very dissapointed in this puzzle!! The quality is NOT "good" as in the description, but very POOR!! My one year old son received it yesterday as a birthday gift and my inital excitement over this very colorful and pretty seeming puzzle turned into mere dissapointment: in a matter of only 5 minutes a piece of the ply wood (the puzzle is made of) came off one of the pieces! My son could have swallowed it, if I would have not noticed. The puzzle is definately chunky and heavy, however it is deceiving as on a second look you will see that the wood is not very durable. Today, not even 24 hours later, the dinosaur sticker on each piece are coming off and it will be just a matter of days -if at all- until this puzzle is completely unusable. Just found half of the sticker in my sons mouth... I can't even imagine a, even more active 2 year old using the puzzle, as this is the age group the puzzle is actually advertised for. Frankly the value is a poor one too no matter as what a "good deal" it is advertised at. 10 bucks is too much in my opinion if the puzzle does not even last 24 hours. I really expected something else!
Very dissapointing for a on the first look nice seeming, "hand crafted" puzzle.

My little guy at 18 months is already quite a fan of dinosaurs, which makes his former dinosaur-loving mom and dad very pleased. We have another of these chunky puzzles Melissa & Doug First Chunky - Pets which he plays with quite a bit, so I thought the dino puzzle would be a hit for Christmas.

What I like about these puzzles is that not only are they puzzles, but they can be used in other ways. For example, my son likes to play with the figures by themselves more than he likes to do the puzzle. In 4-6 months I would imagine he would start to be interested in using this more as a puzzle. The recommended age is 2 years and up. I would say this would be good for 1.5-3 year olds. The pieces are too large to choke on, and the fact that kids can use the figures for creative play makes them well worth the 10 bucks.

I looked up these puzzles on Healthystuff.org, and the chunky puzzles all got a low rating, which is good. Low still means there is a detectable level of one of the 5 toxins the site tests for, and really there should be NONE, but I consider these to be one of the safer puzzle options out there for small kids.

I have read other reviews that claim that the figures are not painted but rather stickers placed over wood. I have not found this to be the case with either of my two puzzles. Perhaps they have an older/newer version? We received our first puzzle as a baby shower gift in May of 2012, and I just purchased this dino puzzle. Neither one has stickers. The figures are very durable and I have not experienced paint chipping or anything. My son is rather rough with his toys and has chewed the animals from the pet puzzle. It has held up exceptionally well.

I would highly recommend these puzzles. It saves from having to buy both puzzles and wooden figures. We will be getting a few more.
