This is the perfert puzzle for 6 year olds and so hard to find in this range. Just the right number of green or brown pieces to keep them trying with out being so overwhelmed that they give up or so easy that they don't have to try and think. Wish could find more like this!

This is our third 60 piece puzzle and second from the Melissa and Doug brand. My son is a puzzle addict and he outgrew the 24 pieces some time ago. We leveled up to 60 pieces (ideally 48 piece would be more ideal but there are not many options in that range.)

Melissa Doug puzzles offer excellent product quality with vibrant colored images and durable material. This one is no exception. Our previous 24 piece puzzles were relatively lower quality and after going over them many times he managed to bend quite a few pieces. But so far nothing of that sort happened in this one. He does not treat them in the most gentle way but they stand the pressure great.

The age range is advertised as 5+ but a 4 years old can overcome this challenge with some help and encouragement. My four years old son first got discouraged due to the huge number of pieces compared to the 24 piece ones, but when we sat down and helped him a little, he got his confidence and managed completing it. I only put 5 out of the 60 pieces and it took him 36 minutes to complete it all. Puzzles (if your child is interested in solving them) are the best way to get him focused on a project and they are great exercises for problem solving too.

If I say a few words about how this puzzle compares to our other 60 piece ones: I can say that the image is lovely, depicting a mother and its child and my son loved the concept. But in terms of solving the puzzle I have to say it is in the harder side of the scale with a dominant brown color and not very prominent landmarks to use as hints for solving it. Besides that I think over 30% of the photo is background which might be quite a challenge to complete as well (since most pieces are very similar.) If you are on the market for your first 60 piece puzzle, I would recommend those with more distinct figures and less background.

Last words go for the price: I bought this from amazon at $10.39 in july 2014, yet a few days later found out that it is sold on melissa doug website for $6.99 (free shipping over $45). If you have other toys or puzzles to buy from melissa doug, it might be a good idea to visit their website. For sure, I will not be buying our next puzzle from amazon unless they come closer to that price soon.

I gave this to my niece for Christmas. She is a little over 4 years old, and she loved it. She was able to do the whole thing pretty much on her own. The pieces latch together well, unlike some puzzles that keep falling apart. She loves horses, and I would recommend this puzzle for any "little one" that does as well.

Although there is nothing wrong with this puzzle, I have since learned that my child prefers puzzles with more colors and images.... rather than just brown and green. Saying that, this puzzle does challenge ones ability to find the right pieces without relying on the images as much.

My son LOVES puzzles and has quite a few, but this one isn't a favorite. I think this puzzle would be a good choice for a kid who really likes horses, but it's not as much fun or as interesting as other comparable puzzles.

Daughter loved this beautiful puzzle. Was a beautiful picture and very thick cardboard. Easy to see details make it easy to find pieces.

My daughter has put this puzzle together many times now and it is holding up very well. Better than my son's Johne Deere puzzle!

Granddaughter is three and loves horses. She worked diligently to solve this puzzle. Melissa and Doug always pleases.

This puzzle was fun for me and my 5 yr. old. She loves horses, and really loves making the baby and it's mother.
