Although this is rated for ages 3 and above, I tested it out on my 18 month old before wrapping for Christmas presents for the older toddlers. She was a HUGE fan of the bright colors, and since she has other Melissa & Doug puzzles, she first tried to pull the puzzles out by hand without any success. Once we showed her how to use the magnetic fishing pole she became very studious and was able to work them all out on her own, giving them to Daddy to put back in, and started all over again. I was really surprised that she was able to do this, and it held her attention for a good two hours before I had to pack it up because it was bedtime. The shiny metal "buttons" on the puzzle pieces made it easy for her to know where to stick the magnet, that was VERY well thought out by the makers. Knowing my two older "toddlers", it's going to be a huge hit with them as well and there will probably be a bit of fighting over them since I have three little ones and only two puzzles! :D

Really, my only concern with these is that my older boy toddler may swing around the pole and with lots of littles in the house, we may have a whack or two. Thankfully the magnetic plastic part and string is actually VERY lightweight so it won't do any serious, if any, damage... obviously they put some thought into that. So I think all will be well in spite of this, although I still wish the string was a tad bit shorter to discourage this.

REALLY bright, cute puzzle pieces; well thought out concept; solid wood construction; quality puzzle... what else could you ask for? I HIGHLY recommend this one, absolutely perfect for Christmas presents!

My son is 3 and got this for Christmas when he was a little under 2.5 years old. This is an awesome idea, fun, BUT I/he really wish the pictures were underneath the puzzle pieces. I know on our other M&D puzzles - they offer the picture under the puzzle to match. I also understand just trying to match the puzzle pieces by shape and memory - but, my son wants to use the magnet parts and catch his bugs/sea life and I looses interest when it takes him a while to put them back together. I would buy this again, but every time he uses it, I also think how I wish the pictures were matching......

...and not give these games the lavish praise that other reviews have.

They are IMO, very much in the "Just OK" category (3 stars), no more no less. I really don't get the gushing.

I think Melissa and Doug make decent wooden toys (we own quite a bit of their stuff), but they aren't the highest quality by a long shot (and I am sure they would admit as such), in terms of craftmanship or materials used (quality of wood, finish, etc).

These particular games are interesting for about 5 minutes *(typical attention span for this age I guess) for my almost 2 year old. I showed him how to use the magnet (after searching for the wand for an hour), and he tried and tried, finally getting it. Sometimes he would use his hand, which is ok of course, as they are honing/learning motor skills.

PROS:
- good tool for teaching a specific motor skill, and probably teaches patience, and carefulness as well
- colorful, interesting shapes

CONS:
- would be nice if wand could attach to board somehow...can easily get lost
- seems spendy for average quality wood and finish
- finish not that great...cheap, lightweight wood, rough-ish edges

Overall, I can recommend this, but personally, we have an overabundance of toys in our house (our fault), so I am VERY picky now about what gets to stay and what doesn't (or ideally, what gets bought and what doesn't). A one time, 5 minute toy does not cut it anymore, to be thrown in the toybag, taking up space and causing toy overload in the kiddos.

New toys need staying power if you know what I mean, but that is likely a specific scenario that you may not be in (but let it be a friendly warning to new parents! This is an easy trap to fall into). Not sure it will be a toy that they keep coming back to, but again, I seem to be the contrarian voice here, so YMMV.

I purchased this for my 5 year old son for Christmas, and he enjoyed it for a few minutes. It is really more appropriate for younger children, which the package indicates, but I thought he would still like it. The excitement of the fishing pole and bug net wore off very quickly when he discovered that they are just used to lift some pieces of wood up and down. It is very cute and great for hand-eye coordination. Bright colors and durable wood materials. Manufacturer recommends ages 3+ but I would say ages 1+.

My 2 year old loves puzzles. She has mastered most of the wooden peg puzzles we have, but is not ready for interlocking puzzles yet. That is where these great magnetic puzzles come in.

They are on a similar skill level to regular peg puzzles but they add the fun element of fishing/catching the pieces with a magnetic pole. This feature adds a level of difficulty to the puzzles too because you have to guide the pole and steady it above the piece you want to pick up.

This pack of two features a fishing puzzle and a bug catching puzzle. These puzzles are very durable and well made. They have been enjoyed by a lot of kids that have come over to play. I highly recommend them.
