My 2 year old really loves these jigsaws! and is now very quick at doing them. We already had farm animals and diggers, so bought these to expand our collection.

The pictures are great but this time the quality was really poor. Lots of splinters and the pictures have peeled off in several places. The jigsaws are badly cut and dont lie flat when they are together. My son doesn't seem to notice, but I was really quite disappointed

Four nice looking puzzles in a great storage box.
The pieces lack finishing and will give you splinters. You have to use force to piece them together, so not a good learners set.
Cute pictures and varying difficulty.
I would have preferred colour coding rather than symbols.

I have bought it in 2014 and so far the quality seems quite good. The pictures look painted directly on wood -- not glued-on pieces of paper. Puzzle pieces fit together nicely. They are a bit thin, so a very determined 2 year old might snap them, but you are supposed to watch 2yo playing with it anyway. Anyway, there were no such attempts from both of my daughters. Being made from wood some splinters appears on the edges, particularly if pieces are 'forced to fit'. But again, I did not have a cause for concern so far. Box will almost certainly crack, if dropped from the table to the hard floor, but wouldn't?

As to 'playability' and 'educational value' they both are excellent. I showed this puzzle to girls about a month before their 2nd birthday and they grasped the idea pretty fast (they were confidently assembling 4-pieces jigsaw puzzles by that time). 3 months later they are still enjoying it -- trying to assemble them almost every evening after dinner. They are close to assemble them completely on their own by now.

Finally, as there are four puzzles in box, if you are (un)lucky enough to get twins you can get away with buying a single set for both of them. I introduced first two puzzles, then another two in couple of weeks to maintain interest. I certainly going to buy at least one more set (of different animals) in near future.

The handy storage box keeps the pieces together, and the fact that each piece has 1 of 4 symbols on the reverse is very useful when trying to put them back into the correct section of the box.

although the size was on the description I didn't think to actively measure. It is very small and very fiddly and not very well made

A little small and tricky for 22mos, but usefully compact for travel and a good puzzle for the future.
