I love Melissa & Doug toys. They are durable and last a long time. Plus I feel like most of their toys are also educational. The Tow Truck Magnetic Puzzle is no exception. There are so many ways we play with this toy. It did not take my 2-year old son long to figure out how to pick up the cars with the magnet. But once the car pieces are out, it also acts as a puzzle to put the cars back in. And, since each car is a different color and number we are able to use it as a tool for teaching him colors and numbers. He plays with this toy at least once a day.
