Let me start out by saying, I LOVE Melissa and Doug products. If you read my other reviews, you'll see that I LOVE their Chunky Puzzles.

But I DO NOT RECOMMEND this one at all!

1. This is not a good Chunky puzzle. It is much more flimsy and the stickers peel off the pieces.

2. The pieces are NOT shaped like the letter. So more than one letter will fit in more than one spot... Like the O, G, and C will all fit in the same spots.

3. The pictures used to describe the letter are ODD choices... The first time I did the puzzle with my son, it took me a few seconds to figure out what the pieces were supposed to be.

4. These pieces are a lot smaller than most of the Melissa and Doug puzzle pieces.

I was very disappointed with this puzzle and bought the other Melissa and Doug alphabet puzzle to replace this one!

I bought this for my 2 year old who has done other similar puzzles, but this one was almost impossible because the letters are not cut out in the correct shape (more like a cicle/square). So, this is way too difficult for her to do. I put it into storage until she is older. I would not buy this alphabet puzzle, but one that has the letters actually cut out and matching the background.

We like Melissa and Doug puzzles, but this one is a little different. The alphabet pieces are easy to maneouvre, like their other puzzles, but the ideas that they chose to represent each letter are sometimes weird/confusing.

A is for apple, B is for basket, C for carrot, D for duck, E for egg (why is the egg blue? My kid thought it was a balloon), F has a picture of a bird, implying 'feather'. Too off-track for my 2 year old.
Other unusual ones: I is for insect. J is for jumprope, Q is for Quail. T for tie, V for vine, Y for yarn.

Why didn't they choose items that weren't so 'obtuse', like F is for foot, I is for ice cream, Q is for quilt, or 'quack' (duck)T is for toes, V is for vaccuum, Y is for yam/yogurt/yellow...why didn't they hire me? ;)

By the time my kid knows these words himself, he will be too old for the manipulative side of the puzzle.

So, you have to be ready to do the puzzle with your young child, if you are practicing words.

I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my son (17 mos at the time) and thought maybe it would be a little difficult for him at that time but we gave it a whirl. By the end of January he knew all of the letters and their respective places. We also reinforced "B is for Basket" "H is for House" etc. and he really understands the objects underneath. Now, less than 2 months after starting this, he is starting to show me letters in all the different places we find them, his Car's cup said "DOC HUDSON" and he could tell me where each letter was, along with his Elmo slippers that said Elmo. This puzzle teaches fine motor skills (the pieces aren't the easiest for little ones) and is a lot of fun to learn the letters of the alphabet, I can't speak highly enough of this puzzle.

My daughter is 28 months old and loves this puzzle. She has played with it for a few months and is now able to do it all by herself. I haven't had any issues with peeling stickers (these get used A LOT) nor have we experienced confusion over the pictures under each letter. I also like that there is a picture under each letter piece instead of an identical image of the letter; I feel like it's more of a challenge for them to remember where each letter goes (picture/letter association)and it makes the puzzle that much more interesting. We haven't run into a major issue just because some letters fit into the same space. I mean, V and A will be confusing to kids no matter what, but you just walk them through it and offer gentle corrections. Sometimes she tries to make the E face the wrong direction, but again, it's a common mistake and one I can work with her to correct now.

Some reviews complain that parents need to spend time with their little ones while they work on the puzzle. Well, I would hope that most parents would take the time to work with their kids while they learn their alphabet. Sit down next to them, say the letters aloud, make their sounds, ask them to point to certain letters or pictures, etc. This is a great learning tool, but young children will benefit from your interaction while they play with it.

This puzzle combined with Leap Frog's Letter Factory DVD was all it took for her to learn her capital letters pretty darn quick. The sense of accomplishment and confidence she gets when playing with it makes me very happy with the purchase and I give it a full 5 star recommendation.

The pictures underneath the letters are perfect for beginners because they are pictures common enough that even a 2 year old can identify them. So its great for letter association skills. The shapes are easy for a 2 year old to take in and out without getting frustrated but challenging enough that it takes some time to get it sorted out. Great for a 2 year old.
