My son received this as a gift for his 4th birthday. Coincidentally, he got four USA puzzles! This one was the worst. As others have noted, you can put a state in the wrong place and it will say the name of the state that should be there. The borders of the states are incredibly inaccurate (simplified). My biggest problem is that it looks like the country is floating in the middle of an ocean, with no reference to Canada or Mexico. My son's biggest problem is that it will randomly announce states in the middle of the night. There is no reason why you need a puzzle to talk to you. Buy a traditional floor puzzle instead and talk to your child yourself.

    I got this puzzle to use with my kindergarten students and they absolutely love it. It's very interactive and meets the needs of visual, kinesthetic, and aural learners. Within a week, they were able to tell me some of the names of states and capitals. Thanks Melissa and Doug, for a truly awesome product for teachers and students!

            Not a very good one

            About Me Parent

            Comments about Melissa & Doug USA Map Sound Puzzle:

            We got this for our 4 year old, and were disappointed with it. even if you put the wrong piece on a state it will tell you the state, it is not a good way of teaching a child the states and its' capitols. He was very confused (recommended age is 5) but even I was confused. It might be good just as a puzzle to make, but certainly not educational. We are returning it. It doesn't even come with batteries for that price, def not worth it!

              We have LOVED every Melissa & Doug product we have ever bought, and that is a lot! This one is was such a bust. The sound is activated by covering the light sensor. Our puzzle is SO sensitive that when you reach across the puzzle to place your piece the shadow of your arm activates a random state. It was so bad we had to take the batteries out. We still use it, but I could have paid a lot less for puzzle without the sound feature.

                  Comments about Melissa & Doug USA Map Sound Puzzle:

                  Was very excited to see that Melissa and Doug made a United States Sound Map but when I got it out of the plastic and FINALLY got the screw out (it kept sticking and wouldn't open the battery compartment) I quickly realized it wasn't reading the states. It would randomly announce a state I wasn't even touching and then it wouldn't even talk when I did put a piece in. On another note I realized it is NOT self correcting because it (if it did decide to work) would say the state name for any piece that is put there because it doesn't appear to have specific sensors. I called Toys R Us and they are going to send me a replacement, if it doesn't work I am going to try out a different one. Sorry Melissa and Doug, unfortunately I am dissapointed!
