Our 9-year-old saw one of the kids at school play with this. So of course the nagging started as soon as we got home. Fortunately, I remember this puzzle since when I was a kid and had no problem giving in.... :-)

Also:
- it is inexpensive (unlike the playstation and x-box); which is a huge benefit, since we have 3 kids and things like this have to be bought in triplicate
- it is made of metal, so that even our 5-year-old couldn't break it
- IT IS GREAT FUN

I never thought I'd think that plastic would be better than metal, but in the case of a 15-puzzle, it certainly is.

Growing up, I loved playing with the cheap plastic fifteen puzzles I'd get going to birthday parties. I was very good at them and very fast at solving the puzzles.

In the 2000s, as a teen, I spent years looking for the plastic slider puzzles, but couldn't find them anywhere. At last, I found a metal 15-puzzle. I figured it would be an upgrade from the flimsy plastic of my (younger) childhood, so I spent 4x as much for this same product as it is shown here.

I was more than disappointed. The reason I loved the plastic sliders was because the pieces slid well and fast. These metal ones are wobbly and frequently get stuck--it's pretty aggravating when I have to unstick each piece several times when attempting to slide a whole row in one direction.

If you are buying for looks, the metal one definitely looks more regal.
If you are actually wanting to solve the puzzle and have fun doing it, buy the plastic version, which is no doubt worth five stars.

This is a great game to carry with you when you go out. I bought it for my 4 year old son initially because he likes the 3x3 puzzle game we bought for him before. This one is a little more challenging than the 3x3 puzzle but overall my boy still likes it when he moves the number around. He does need a lot of help to solve this puzzle. I have a lot of fun playing it myself and would carry it to play sometimes when I go out. Overall this is a great toy for both adults and kids.

This puzzle was and still is a winner. Some things never change and this one is still great. I've given an extra star for the nostalgic "retro" attention to detail.

Its a puzzle ==you get the numbers mixed up and then have to move them one at a time to get them in order. This is very high quality and will last a lifetime if you take care of it. Comes with a vinyl envelope to keep it clean.

This puzzle looks fantastic and unlike what other reviewers have made out, in my experience, it rarely has functionality problems. And when it does have issues, they can typically be resolved by moving the piece a different direction, then moving it back in the direction you originally wanted--not too difficult to manage on the rare occasion that it has a problem.

I had this little game when i was very young, and decided to buy it again. It is still the same little toy i had long ago, and i love to see if other people can figure it out. Great gift for pre-teens and young kids. Also a great gift for a gift basket. This product is also metal, so you cannot remove the little squares to cheat (which i like).

I have another one of these puzzles as well. This is my second one. I want to first say that for those of you who have issues with the numbers not sliding smooth, the more you play with the puzzle the smoother the slides become. I find this a little handy game to keep in your pocket, it helps pass the time and relieve stress. I gave this 4 stars because the color of the puzzle was slightly darker than my original one. The image in the listing shows the color I of my other puzzle (so that's what I had expected to get). However The color was not as pictured (see customer review photo by "FROSTY") It's just a personal thing but overall a fun little game/toy to pass the time.
