Pros:It is big and easy to organize and read the letters and the board itself is thick enough that it will not get torn apart by kids easily.
Cons: It lists only continents and not countries.For the size it is, it would have been better if it listed countries.
SUCH a pointless toy. No child would ever complete this unless they have monumental patience to keep putting the pieces together and having them move around. What was Melissa and Doug thinking?
With an educational angle such as this, the Melissa and Doug World Map Puzzle would seem like an excellent puzzle that every child should own. However, there are a few problems with this puzzle and one will be obvious to anyone who opens the box for the first time and begins to assemble the pieces: The inner part of the puzzle does not include interlocking pieces. The frame of the puzzle does include standard, interlocking pieces, but the interior part of the puzzle does not. The interior pieces just lie there, next to each other, causing them to slide around and possibly adding to the frustration of the young person trying to assemble. This is certain to bother parents and children alike.
The second problem I have with this puzzle is less important, but still deserves mentioning, and that would be the lack of labels on the countries and large bodies of water. The only places with names are the seven continents and the major oceans. National boundaries are shown, but there are no names for the countries. Some would say that this would make the puzzle too complicated, but considering this puzzle is aimed at the upper- elementary school ages, I think it would be a wise addition. It would add greatly to the puzzle's educational value.Read more ›
