Typical of this manufacturer, the graphics are high quality and the cardboard is thick and durable.
The cuts on the puzzle are divided so that one piece is one train car. (Other puzzles by other manufacturers can be put together without ever knowing or dealing with the alphabet.) The only way to construct this puzzle is to know the proper order of the English alphabet and attach them in that manner. Each piece contains both the upper and lower case letter and an illustration to go along with that letter.
My son began playing with this when he was three and did not yet know the letters by sight. He did know the alphabet song. I found the way to play this with the least frustration and the most educational value is for me to play alongside him. I let him piece them together until he asks for help (before he is angry). We sing the alphabet song together to find the next letter in the alphabet. If he doesn't know it by sight he asks for help and I give phonetic clues such as "G makes a sound like "gg", what do you see that starts off like that sound" at which point he finds the goldfish. One complaint though is that the goldfish is sometimes mistaken for just a fish and the F. I wish something more blatantly "g" was chosen for that one. We progress in this manner until it is done. I feel this has helped him learn the letters by their sight.
The appeal for my son was that this is a train related toy. Learning the alphabet was a byproduct that he was not aware was actually my key motive in buying this.
I also appreciate both upper and lower case letters being shown as sometimes alphabet toys and activities use just one or the other.
If you like this type of learning activity I'd also suggest the numbers puzzle by this same manufacturer to help learn the numbers by sight.

I have 2 boys with autism ages 5 and 3 1/2. We are currently working through a program called Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to help educate them and try to pull them out of their autism. This program consists of different activities such as letter matching, counting, self-help skills, fine motor, puzzles, etc. When I saw this puzzle, I thought that it would do a lot for my children: recognizing letters, sequencing, and problem solving through puzzles.
My 3-year-old has been able to recognize his letters, upper and lower case, since he was 2, but he did not know the alphabet song or how to put them in order. He loves puzzles, and this puzzle was able to teach him those things. He now can put the letters in order without missing a beat. We pile them up and mix them up, and he is always looking for the next correct letter. He is so proud of himself when he finds it, and brings it to me to show me. Then, he will tell me what the picture is on the piece that he brings me. He loves it, and I love the fact that this puzzle is educational in such a way that even children with disabilities can easily learn from it.
The pieces are very hard and durable, and stand up to the test of very rugged play. My boys can be pretty destructive, and this puzzle looks new.

We bought this Alphabet train puzzle for our two year old for Christmas. We already have 9 other puzzles by Melissa and Doug and my kids love them. This puzzle is a 10 foot long train and in two different places the picture doesn't line up between two pieces. It is the alphabet, so I know that the pieces are in the correct order but you try to teach kids to line up the picture when you do a puzzle and you can't with this one.
This definitely is not the quality that we expect from this company. We are disappointed.

My 4 year old still likes to put this puzzle together even though he has been able to do it for awhile now. We have had it several years and it is still in excellent shape. Fun, educational and very well made.

This is the best puzzle! My son learned his ABC's at 27 months by playing this puzzle. It's a fun way to educate your little loved one!

I bought this puzzle for my 2 yr old daughter for Christmas and she loves it. She doesn't know her letters yet, but she can find all 'passengers' on the train and we say the letter for the piece that she is looking for. Now, she is starting to know what letters we are looking for. This is a step up from the alphabet song and leading into letter recognition. The pieces are thick and durable. She stands on them and there is no wear and tear. This is a great toy for any preschooler! Wonderful 'hands-on' toy!

My 4 yr. old grandson who is a train enthusiast really enjoyed the puzzle. I do think there is a problem with the choice of pictures such as a G for goldfish. He kept saying G is for fish and several other symbols like that were confusing. I did like that they put upper and lower case letters on each piece. Good for getting a child interested in learning the alphabet.

This is the worst alphabet puzzle ever. Apparently, the designers have no friends that care about them enough to say, "hey pal, 'X' isn't for 'Fox'." There are even animals with names that begin with 'X.' Even if it's a relatively unknown animal, it still would make more sense and my 3 yr old wouldn't be saying "X is for Fox." On top of this ridiculous (and confusing) inconsistency in the pattern, the puzzle train is made up of ALL animals EXCEPT in the case of the letter 'U', for which they used "Umbrella" for the picture reference. I don't know about you but I aways thought umbrellas were not animals. The best part is there is actually, a bird called an Umbrella Bird but the designers decided putting two Tigers in succession on the train would be less confusing (T - for Tiger followed by, U - for an umbrella propped over another tiger). Why would anyone make an entire puzzle clearly dedicated to animals except for a random umbrella insertion? If the puzzle was supposed to be just random objects and a corresponding letter, that would be fine but it isn't... It's all animals except one piece!! This is just laughably stupid. It's another example of how poorly thought out and careless everything is these days. Save your money, teach your kids the alphabet song.
