GREAT ALPHABET SOUND PUZZLE
My two year old daughter loves sound puzzles which it's fun, unique, and a way to reinforce cause & effect for early vocabulary and matching skills.

I'm so irritated with this product and surprised other moms with toddlers liked it. Maybe it's just mine in particular. It says when you remove a letter it will tell you what it is and a word that starts with it. What it did was sense something over it and recite whatever letter that was. So while my 2 yr old took out all the pieces and went to put them in, even the shadow from his arm made the stupid thing recite letters. He would be holding the T and putting it in but because his arm was over the Z it would say Z which is really confusing for a toddler learning his alphabet! I hate it...I'm taking it back.

Comments about Melissa & Doug Learn Your ABC's Wooden Sound Puzzle:
This puzzle is going back! What a waste of money. The voice box is terrible. Reminds me of what Doogie Howser's PC used to sound like when he talked. There is absolutely zero animation in any of the pronunciations and the letters don't have to be matched up in order for the base to read out a letter. My son can hold a T near the D and it's sensor reads the D. C'mon! I also agree with the mom that wrote the letters could stand to be a little larger and to top it off, once all the letters are in place, it doesn't even sing the ABC song as it reads on the bottom. For a $20 price tag, this puzzle should have been %100 better. Extremely disappointing.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

WASTE OF MONEY
This puzzles stinks! I bought the ABC, 123, & Shape one & they did NOT work. The ABC one would work when it wanted to, the shape one did NOT work at ALL & the 123 one would say another number.

The worst Sound Puzzle for teaching!
By Stay @ Home Mom previous Educator

About Me Child Care Provider, Educator, Parent
The least of my worries was that the puzzle would go off whenever it felt like it but rather that you could put any letter anywhere & it would tell you the name of the letter in the spot you are placing it!For Example: If I wanted to place the A in the Z spot the puzzle would say: "Z is for…" This is true for any letter combination! Talk about confusing for a toddler who is just learning their letters!!! The concept is great but I'd suggest you go with a company who is known for educational toys & not just for their wooden products! We've decided to go with the Leapfrog Fridge Phonics/Magnet line. If you are purchasing this item for educational purposes I strongly suggest that you do the same!

I love wooden puzzles for my daycare.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Unfortunately the sound quality is extremely poor. Not the quality you'd want your kids to learn the alphabet from. Remember those "string pull" voice dolls from 35 years go...well the sound in this is even worse than that! Very very very disappointing.
Love Melissa & Doug but......

This puzzle goes off all hours of day and night when it is not even being played with!! Quite unnerving.

You can't understand the voicebox at all, it sounds very muffled and many times says the wrong letter that's in it's spot. I could have paid half the amount of money I did for a regular ABC puzzle, but instead opted for this one in hopes that it would teach my children their ABC's. I had to take the batteries out because it was confusing them more than anything.

I bought this puzzle for my 2 year old daughter @ Toys R Us. I love Melissa & Doug puzzles my daughter has almost all of them!!! This one looked really neat because it teaches them their letters & what it starts with. I had it for about a day & my daughter lost the letter A. The puzzle started to go off all by itself, even in the middle of the night!! It would say A is for apple & we couldn't even find the letter A!!! LOL!!!So I returned it & got her a Melissa & Doug jigsaw puzzle instead!!
