Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from Two Puzzles, One that works. Because our Christmas has been delayed due to illness, I just opened the puzzles today, put batteries in, and checked them out. In the Musical Instruments Puzzle the zylophone piece does not work. I need to contact you about getting my money back, or you sending me a new working puzzle. I also bought Sing Along Nursery Rhymes Puzzle which is working fine. However the two puzzles - which look very similar work differently This could be confusing for a two year old. The musical instrument puzzle sounds after you take out, THEN REPLACE, the piece. For the Nursey Rhymes, the song starts immediately when you take out the piece.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from Very Disappointed! I expected the instruments to actually sound like those instruments!!! The drum and the xylophone were the only ones that sounded good. The rest are just different tones of the same sound. I wanted my granddaughter to learn from this, but that won't be happening.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Fun Play Time My grandson and granddaughter have enjoyed this puzzle. Not only is it good coordination practice in placing the pieces but we've played with each piece individually to create our own 'band'. I would buy it again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous from Scared the living daylights out of hubby I received this toy as a gift from my daughter's grandparents. Hubby did not know the whole "light activated" thing and I just didn't read the "instructions". First time it startled me then I figured it out. Hubby did not know about the toy and. Last night after he turned the lights off it started playing. Talk about a possessed toy. Anyway, my daughter has little interest in it and the instruments don't sound like the original. Also, if you place the harmonica where the piano is suppose to go it still places. Pretty pointless toy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from Wiorthless! I purchased this puzzle as a gift for my granddaughter's 2nd birthday. Inserted brand new batteries, did not work. Tried another set of batteries...still did not work. Exchanged it for another of the same and it does not work, either. I also see that in very small print on reverse side, it says "light-activated, use in bright light", which I think is ridiculous but even after trying that, there is still no sound!!! Sooo, another trip to store -- this time for full refund!!! And BTW, I do believe that most Melissa & Doug products are overrated & overpriced!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous from sound puzzle - musical instruments I bought this puzzle for my 2 year old. The concept behind the puzzle is good. However, if you are buying this puzzle to help a child learn the sounds of different instruments, the puzzle can be confusing for a young child. We discovered that if you put the wrong instrument piece over the opening (e.g., put the piano piece over the opening for the drum), it still plays that instrument. This design flaw needs to be corrected.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from Don't Bother I and my family are big fans of Melissa and Doug toys; however, I was completely disappointed in this one. The instruments pretty much all sound alike, with the exception of the xylophone and maybe one other. Your child will NOT learn how instruments sound via this game. Any instrument makes any one of the sounds - they don't have to be placed in their respective places to sound off the right sound. Furthermore, if one of the instruments is held, say, 2 feet away from the puzzle, the sound goes off. It's hard to say which one, considering they all sound alike. Last, but not least, the constant refrain of "Old MacDonald" is extremely annoying. Couldn't they at least have used a different tune for the different instruments? Bottom line: Not recommended, needs lots of work.
