Rated 5 out of 5 by Concerned Grandma This is an excellent product for a 1 year old.
This is for my 1 year old grandson, and I know he will love it. They pieces are large and easy to handle and are not a choking hazard. It is bright and colorful. I have no negative comments about this toy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mom Quality is lacking
Bought several Melissa & Doug puzzles for my son. Two were of the old style--handpainted-now very hard to find as Melissa & Doug no longer use paint for the puzzles. Instead, they use thin, uncoated stickers that easily start to flake off with minimal play. That was our experience with this puzzle, and I've read other reviews complaining of the same problem. Melissa & Doug name used to stand for quality; now their products are no better than any other brand, so why pay more for them? I understand not wanting to use paint due to lead concerns, however, I wish they would've put some kind of safe clear coat over the stickers to keep them from disintegrating so easily. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Magen I would recomend to anyone!
My son got this for Christmas and he is a year and a half. He loves it. He wont play with other toys because he wants to play with this puzzle. I have a parents as teachers come to our house and they said he is so much more hand eye cordinated. I like how it has the picture under the puzzle to, it help him know where it goes and how it goes. I GIVE THIS 10 STARS!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Frustrated Mom Do not buy for 1-year old.
My mom purchased this as a gift for my son for Christmas. He is 1-years-old and she liked the fact that it has large knobs for him to hold. It has only been a week and while I try to stop him from sucking on the pieces, everything ends up in his mouth. After only a couple of days, the puzzle images started scraping off. Very disappointed!

We bought this for my daughter when she was 16 months old and she LOVED it. She still uses it at the age of 2; however, she can now do the puzzle very quickly so we are now looking for another M&D puzzle that is more challenging for her. I would recommend this to any parent.

This is a great first puzzle for kids. The knobs are large, so kids can easily grab it. The subject is great, you can make the animal noises with your kids as you do the puzzle.

Son loves to play with puzzle, but wooden layers separate in middle (intentional cuts through top two layers). He was able to rip off the top two layers of wood - resulted in splintered areas and rendered puzzle completely unusable.
