This Animal Alphabet puzzle has clear cut letters and exceptional graphics. The inclusion of a few rare or endangered species broadens a child's mind. Encourages dialog on environmental awareness and being a responsible caretaker of our planet. Fun for teachers who are tired of "X is for x-ray".

DO NOT BUY THIS PUZZLE! I initially purchased it because I loved the chunky letters and the beautiful animal illustrations. My 21-month-old reached for it among all of the others on the shelf. Then we got it home and the trouble began.Let's start with the ones that we could at least figure out - The dog for the letter "B" was apparently a Bassett Hound. Chameleon for C was another tough one (what happened to Cat or Cow???) The lobster looking creature for S was I guess a scorpion. And it took us hours to realize the rodent for M was a Muskrat, and the Moose-looking creature for W was a Wildebeest. My daughter also had a hard time that the "monkey" for O was actually an orangutan. And then the research began. The squid thingy coming out of a shell for N was a Nautilus. What? A Nautilus. Exactly. And then there was the X - looks like a squirrel with chipmunk striping. Took 3 teachers, 2 mothers and several of my older children's 6th-grade classmates to figure out X was for Xerus - a small ground squirrel found in Africa, and the X sounds like a Z for this animal.So hooray for the letters - they are wonderful!!! But I can't help thinking I could be a millionaire, or at least have the gratitude of mothers and fathers everywhere, if I had an ounce of talent to produce a puzzle with bright chunky letters and beautiful illustrations that would include a cat, dog, monkey, snake, octopus, walrus and turtle (as opposed to toucan.) A puzzle with common sense associations.My daughter is at the age where she is constantly asking what things are -- I'd like to be able to answer her, and not have her pre-school teacher wondering why she thinks squirrel begins with the letter Z and is spelled Xerus.....

Comments about Melissa & Doug Super Chunky Alphabet Puzzle:
I bought this puzzle to help my 18 month old with recognition and teach him the alphabet. I thought it would take a few weeks for him to master it, but it only took a few days. I like that similar letters (such as A and V, W and M) are the same colors and shapes. That teaches him to look closely at each one before placing them on the board.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Just wish it had something to store the letters in .. Or maybe keep hem stuck onto the board .. Velcro maybe?
I WOULD BUY THIS PRODUCT AGAIN
from JESSUP PA
I PURCHASED THIS FOR MY THREE AND A HALF YEAR OLD GRANDSON. THE WOODEN PIECES FIT NICELY IN HIS HANDS. THE PIECES MATCH THE SAME PICTURE ON THE BOARD WHICH MAKES IT EASY FOR HIM TO REPLACE THE PIECES. VERY COLORFUL.THE WOODEN PIECES DO STAND UP MAKING IT EASY TO SPELL NAMES, ETC.
It's great she loves it!
Great Learning while playing!

Cute puzzle. Easy for tiny hands to pick up the pieces. So far and been able to take a toddler's beating. A few of the animals are hard to identify. Letters N and X to be specific. But I do like it and so does my daughter
