These educational puzzles offer lots of ways to learn and play! Pieces are slightly raised above these number and alphabet puzzle boards for easy grasping. As each piece is placed correctly, children are rewarded with a corresponding sound. Colorful pictures underneath each piece help reinforce important ideas like the relationship between letters and their sounds, and quantities and numerals.

Uses light to tell which piece is being put in. It does not work well at all. Shadows, arms, and hands cause the puzzle to say the wrong letter or number being used. The light sesnors far too sensitive to be used in any practical lighting setting. You need to be in really, really, really bright light. Melissa and Doug should consider discontinuing this item. Or Target should stop selling it. Honestly, it is not a good product. Great idea, but horrible execution. Disappointed in Melissa and Doug for putting their name on this product.
Bought these for my son last Christmas. The only reason I'm buying them again is because he lost some of the letters and numbers because he takes them all over the house. These things get LOTS of playtime. Other than that, both boards work just fine and he still loves them. I'm sorry to read others have had issues. :(
Bought these puzzles as a Christmas gift. was disappointed with the fact that only a few of they letters and numbers worked. Sometimes the whole thing wouldn't work at all. Was disappointing, my 1 year old daughter really liked playing with it but it doesn't say the letters and numbers like it was suppose to .
