Learn to Dress in a Snap
Getting dressed will be a snap as kids learn to master manual life skills by helping the friendly bear on this six-piece skills puzzle get dressed! Each shaped puzzle piece features a different hands-on skill -- a snap, a button, a zipper, a belt buckle, a plastic press-and-release buckle, and a lace. Fasten the attached clothing pieces and place the pieces to dress the bear! The skills board is a puzzle, too! Both the individual activities and putting together the puzzle are great ways to help kids develop manual dexterity, fine motor skills, and hand-eye coordination, and to encourage problem-solving skills. The bright, colorful puzzle pieces encourage color recognition and teach real-life skills. Learn to tie knots or bows with the lace up sleeve, snap or buckle a shirt cuff and more. Pieces can be snapped, tied, buckled, buttoned, zipped, and fastened in the puzzle board, or take them out for extra practice.

It is a PUZZLE- you are supposed to take it apart, work on each skill seperately, then redress the bear. I think that is awesome and helps with focus. I included pics :)
Anyway, the toy is a little advance for her still in some ways. The puzzle aspect of it is a bit tricky for her age, same with the belt and laces but this is to be expected and not a negative because she will grow into the toy and it will last that much longer. The board itself is very well built out of a heavy wood material, same with the individual pieces. I suppose this could be a concern for a drop on the foot or toe while carrying, typically we are sitting with her anyway if using the entire board. More times than not, she's only interested in one puzzle piece to work on at a time anyhow.
What I believe the point is to take each of the pieces of clothes off the bear 1st, then have the child shut each item (button, buckle, snap, zip, etc.) and then once the task is completed you put each one on the bear where it belongs. My daughter is 3 1/2 and has had no trouble in using each of these items seperately. She has fun getting the bear dressed.
If anything I would say that this toy is so much better than one of the stuffed animals that has all of the zippers/buttons/shoe laces on them because with this toy there is only one task at a time and a child won't get so distracted easily.
This is a heavy duty, quality toy that I think will last a very long time. Quality I've come to expect from Melissa & Doug doesn't disappoint.
