Our kids (2 and 4.5) love the Beleduc layer girl, and even the 2 year old learned to reassemble it quite quickly. Then we ordered this one too and found it to be quite a bit more challenging. In particular, you often have to infer which pieces go together from the mother's clothing, whereas for the basic anatomy puzzles you always have a body-structure cue (i.e., this is the muscle layer). Our 4.5 year old girl can just do Mother Layer, but the 2 year old can't quite yet. So if you have younger kids you might get the girl/boy puzzle first. Otherwise we love these products because they kids eagerly learn how to name different body parts and are fascinated by the three-dimensionality.

We have four children whose moms are pregnant this year. Our Montessori class is a multi-age class (3 to 6 years olds) in the same classroom. The children loved the stages of pregnancy the puzzle presented. I made a little booklet to go with the puzzle stages that I present to them as I give the lesson. They compare their moms' pregnancy to the puzzle. They can see how the baby grows inside the moms. A great teaching tool! We also have the boy and girl puzzles for our anatomy lessons. I would recommend all three puzzles for any classroom.

My 27-month old and I work on this everynight as part of our routine...she is really starting to understand that the "baby-in-Mommy's-belly" will "come out" soon...We love it! She is too young to complete all the levels alone, but it makes it more fun to do it together...while we still can!

Got this for my 20month old to illustrate the idea of the "baby in Mommy's tummy". It's a beautiful puzzle that educates at many levels. I can adapt it to my 20month old's current abilities and use it throughout the last few months of pregnancy. It has helped his comprehension of what is going on and what will happen.

I did have to make some modifications... changed the color of the mommy's hair from blond to brunette.

The Hape Mother Layer Puzzle is a well-made, durable layer puzzle that allows children to see the various stages of human development. I was surprised at the high quality and larger than expected size of this puzzle!

Puzzle will help gently introduce children to the idea of "baby is coming" and better understand that "there is a baby in mommy's tummy." It is a great education tool that is directed at young children and is very tasteful and appropriate.

Highly recommend this for families expecting additions to the family.

I bought this for my daughter when I was pregnant. At the time she was only 2 and I was starting to show. The recommended age on this is 4 years old but is great discussion tool for a younger child. I think 2 was the perfect age to start using this. Although, if your child is one that puts a lot in their mouth, make sure to only used it supervised because a couple of the pieces are smaller.

My daughter really enjoyed it and we would play with the puzzle and discuss her upcoming baby sister. While she doesn't have the coordination to put this puzzle together by herself yet we would work on it together and now at a few months shy of 3 she is almost able to accomplish it.

Now that the baby is here we still work on this puzzle and without me saying anything she named the baby in the puzzle the name of her baby sister. Having this really gave me a great tool to help her understand what was going on.

The quality is also excellent and this puzzle is one that should last through multiple kids.

I find it very important for children to know about this. My daughter is 6 years old and she loves the puzzle! She likes to put it together because "it helps her learn." We're not going to be afraid of the human anatomy (especially the female anatomy) in this house! :) Amazing product! I want them all!

We bought this puzzle for our toddler after finding out we were pregnant with our second child. We wanted a method of teaching her about what was happening in mommy's tummy. This puzzle was very effective in showing the progression from little belly up through holding the new baby.

The only recommendation I have is to mark the back of all the pieces to each corresponding layer with a common number like: layer one - number one, layer two - number two...etc. Without being able to separate each layer into its own pile to then start building the puzzle from the bottom up it can be quite challenging to put it together. Our 2.5 yr. old can put it together now that the numbers are on the back.
