Q: I can't identify some of the animals. Is there a legend somewhere?

submitted by Miro - 6 months ago
  • A: The name of each animal is written on the board in the space where the corresponding block goes so parents will be able to know what animal each letter is supposed to be. Thank you

Cute but not accurate shaped letters

Yoga Girl - 2 months ago, Verified purchaser
Cute puzzle but the letter shapes are not accurate so they are not suitable to teach letters to a young child. And as another reviewer pointed out, it would be nice if the puzzle pieces fitted deeper in the puzzle board.

Doesn't stay in place

ELEDteach91 - 3 months ago
It’s super cute and I don’t mind that the letter aren’t always exactly the shape they should be. My problem is the grooves for the pieces aren’t deep enough. My daughter will be doing the puzzle and when she puts in a new piece, she knocks over some of the ones she’s already put in. She has another chunky puzzle similar to this and we don’t have that problem. A little disappointed.

MommyWithCoffee - 4 months ago, Verified purchaser
Kind of confusing - the letters are somewhat shaped like the animals, and also the animals used were occasionally hard to recognize. While not ideal for initially learning letters, it is definitely a cute puzzle. I purchased this for my 3.5 year old, and he does love it!

Not a huge fan of the letters being shaped like animals because it makes some letters confusing to look at. Not ideal for learning the alphabet

Short Vowels

3 out of 5 stars
Thumbs up graphic, would recommend
Caralyne - 9 months ago
I absolutely love this concept! The primary teacher/reading interventionist in me always looks for short vowel examples. I realize this would be difficult for “U”; the only animal I could find was an “umbrellabird.” 😅 To me, the dipthong “ow” sound in “owl” as an example for the letter O is confusing. It’d be more beneficial to use something like, “octopus” or “otter,” for example.

Let me start by saying this puzzle is very cute. However, I am disappointed in the quality. The letters seem to be a better quality, but the board itself started chipping almost immediately after opening in multiple different places. I’m not sure I would recommend just because it could be a hazard to your little one if the letters or board start to chip.

First time mom - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
Bought this for my 2 year old he loves it colors are bright and puzzle is smooth considering it’s wood. Came in okay condition the top roll of letters had a bit of a streak going through and the letter “U” had extra wood. And as my son played with one of the blue letter it marked the wood a little. They put 2 types of Whales for “Narwhal and Whale” so maybe could of got more creative. Over all I would purchase this for another in store so I can make sure it’s in good condition.

Love it. They’re cute and a good chunky size for toddler hands. Having the back as a landscape setting for the pieces to play on was clever too.

we just started to teach our 2.5 yo her ABC. The ABC song is not working for her as she rather associate the letter with a word. This puzzle help TREMENDOUSLY not only you have the animals drawn on it, but the colors to help. it's just beautiful and she was able to do it by herself so fast!

Terrible puzzle the top of the puzzle board peeled off, creating a splinter situation. The letter shapes look nothing like the letters making it hard for my child to match/ learn. Do not recommend!
