I bought several Orchard puzzles (including this one) for my 1.5 year old, and was surprised by how much he enjoyed it! Of course don't expect kids to play with it for hours, but I found it to be a very good educational puzzle that attracts a lot of attention and interest from my son. The quality of the cards is also very good.
We bought this puzzle, among others of the same sort, for our daughter when she was just 1 1/2 years old. She loves playing with it and is happily telling us the words for each puzzle once she put it together. The pictures are great for small children. Colourful without being too "baby-ish", with a lot of love to detail. Our daughter has learned how a jigsaw puzzle works with these easy ones. She is now tackling puzzles with 4 - 6 pieces and loving it. I can highly recommend any of the two-piece puzzles. From what I can judge, they really are of great educational value.
I bought this for my 2 year old and she absolutely loves it. She quickly mastered it though and we've moved onto the other Orchard puzzles with more pieces, wish I had bought it when she was ~ 18 months old. However she still plays with it regularly and I would highly recommend (as with all Orchard puzzles). The pieces are the best quality for cardboard I have come across, my only slight criticism is the box is overly big for its contents (but she does loves stacking all her puzzle boxes).
