I have come to rely on the quality of Melissa and Doug products. This is a sturdy puzzle with an added challenge due to the curvature of the pieces. One thing that might be helpful is having a better unobstructed picture of the completed puzzle. The front of the box features certain design elements that make it difficult to see which sea creatures inhabit which oceans. The picture on the side of the box, which is small, gives the best view.
Our puzzle-loving toddler was frustrated that while assembling this puzzle it was easy to knock pieces out of alignment because they don't interlock. I thought it was cool that the continent of Africa or of South America are each one piece but it turned out to be a design choice that he's not enjoying. He usually loves big floor puzzles and this one is a good quality, I just didn't know or read closely enough that the pieces don't interlock or are not uniform sizes like many other puzzles.
My 3 year loves puzzles. Got it for him and although he loves it he gets frustrated as the covering box does not have the whole picture on the top. He looks at the whole picture to complete the puzzle but it does not help that the picture is not complete . A complete picture is on the side of the box, inconvenient for kids to look at. It misses a star there.

The colors on this map are bold and bright and the animals placed near their home countries are realistic and provide even more learning outside the geography of the world. The pieces are sturdy and the printed portion does not seem like it will peel off with normal classroom or home use. As stated by other reviewers, many interior pieces have curves rather than the traditional interlocking style but my preschool grandson was not frustrated and quickly learned the more pieces he placed correctly, the tighter everything fit. The map is not to scale, but if South America and Africa had been placed as far apart as they really are, this puzzle would have been far too big and with lots of empty ocean between them. For the target age group, the distance accuracy is probably not necessary.

Perfect size, well designed. A piece of Antarctica is broken after 10 times-play or so because of the U shape.

We’ve used this puzzle for group rotations. My kids loved building this puzzle and answering questions about continents and oceans. The puzzle is very durable.

The pieces are abstract and can be difficult for beginners/younger children but still a great learning activity that involves the whole family.
Easy to complete. The continents are each a different color so easy to complete. Was a great tool to introduce granddaughter to the world layout.
