I bought this puzzle for my three year old for Christmas. (He loves it!) The puzzle pieces are wooden, which makes them sturdier than his other puzzles. His cardboard puzzles are beginning to split and peel from excessive use, so I suspect that the wooden pieces will probably last much longer. Each puzzle piece is also marked with a specific shape (square, circle, diamond and triangle) for easier sorting of all the pieces as well. Normally, with multiple puzzle box sets, I would have to help him separate the pieces into the various groups, but because of the shapes on the back of the pieces, he's able to manage on his own. Over all, this was a good buy, and I would definitely recommend it to other parents.
