I bought this for my son when he was around 18 months old as the next step up from the 2 piece jigsaws (also orchard toys) he had been playing with. He loves these! He gets them all out every day and sits and plays quietly with them - bliss! He has had the set for a couple of months now and he has not lost interest at all. The pieces are very strong and well made and fit together perfectly. The images are bright and clear and he loves pointing out the little details in all the pictures - highly recommended!
