Great wood puzzles my son is 2 and love puzzles. He also like to rip off the top coat(on cardboard one pieces) Which He is unable to do with this puzzle. the only thing I would have changed is the fact that it fits VERY snug into the tray if you dont start off just right then you dont have enough room he just dumps it on the floor and has at it. All the Melissa& Doug puzzles we have are great quality

10 year old?

The recommended age is 10-14. Are you sure? My three year old played for several days and felt it was too simple, so we had to buy her a 48 piece set.

    Son is 2.5 and loves hippos and it's not easy to find a puzzle with them in it. So this was great and easy for him to figure out!

        My two-year-old daughter loves puzzles and this one didn't disappoint. She needed help the first few times and then she got it. We love Melissa & Doug puzzles, they are always good solid puzzles that can be worked over and over and take a beating from a preschooler without showing wear and tear.

              Comments about Melissa & Doug Jigsaw Puzzle - African Plains:

              This is a great puzzle, my daughter loves doing this puzzle over and over. When you first open it, the wooden pieces are stuck together and sometimes there are tiny splinters as you pull the pieces apart. This diminishes as the puzzle is used more and more--suggestion to parents--take the puzzle apart a couple of times before your little one plays with it to avoid these tiny splinters. I've noticed with these puzzles as well, that the picture on the wood sometimes pulls off the wood and needs to be reglued (typically at the joints); a minor issue, but an issue nontheless. Overall, it is fairly durable.

                My 4 yr old son received this from his Grandmother & he loves it. It challenges him & keeps him entertained, which is extremely hard to do! We like the bold colors, bright pictures, & beautiful animals. I highly recommend this to help with hand-eye coordination & problem solving, it's a good exercise tool for those. We are going to get more!

                          This puzzle is sturdy and will last for years. The wooden border helps children just learning how to put puzzles together, and keeps the puzzle organized when not in use. The colors and pictures are attractive designs as well. This puzzle is not a teething/ choking hazard, and can be left out in the open without worry. Children develop great eye/hand coordination and the ability to brainstorm. Great, fun learning tool.

                                As I said, my son is 23 months and he LOVES this puzzle. He is obsessed with animals and puzzles so I bought him this for his 2nd birthday, but couldn't resist giving it to him early. He can't work it out on his own yet but loves to play it together and try. He just loves playing with all the pieces and saying the animal names. It's a great puzzle.
