Amplify your child's learning and play experience with this fabulous U.S.A. Map Sound Puzzle.

Colorful illustrations on the map pieces depict images associated with that state, and under each piece you can see an outline of the state's border. It includes 40 puzzle pieces made of top-quality wood to ensure durability and longevity. This Melissa & Doug sound puzzle provides kids with a great introduction to the states while they practice motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and problem-solving skills. It makes an exceptional gift for boys and girls ages five and older for hands-on, screen-free play.

My 3 year old has played with this puzzle off and on for about month and parts of it have already stopped working. This is extremely disappointing given what I spent on this present for my daughter.

There is no top on it once you open it. Little pieces go all over the place.... Some States are not by themselves, sometimes attached to something else. Don't really care for it . I should send it back, I just don't have time to do it.

I understand the necessity to group some small states together but was disappointed that some larger states were cut into two pieces and grouped with other states. I hope my grandchildren will learn the states and their capitals when they play with the puzzle. I think it will be fun and educational.

Love the concept! As a teacher, i was disappointed that some state borders are on a differentpuzzle puece! also, the sound for the wrong state is activated if you put the piece in the wrong spot ( ie if the North Dakota puzzle puece is placed on SouthDakota, it will still activate the language)

Gave this to my five year old great grandson for Christmas and his Mother tells me that as he learns from it she does too. Wonderful way to teach a bit of history to children as they learn while having fun playing.

Unfortunately the puzzle is very sensitive. When my daughter is completing this puzzle, it's constantly blurting out states/capitals that she hovers her arm over. We like it better with the sound off.

Glitch with Sound Makes This Annoying

4 out of 5 stars
- 3 years ago
originally posted on Melissa and Doug
Our grandchildren love this puzzle but we cannot leave the batteries in it because it starts "talking" without being moved, usually in the middle of the night. One particular piece repeats the state name and capitol again and again... I would love one that works properly. My daughter purchased this and gave it to us.

Hi: Thank you for taking the time to comment on the USA Sound puzzle. We take the quality of our toys very seriously and i am sorry to hear that you are having trouble with your puzzle. Please give me a call at 800 284 3948. I would love to speak with you and help you with this right away! Here are a few tips about our sound puzzles. Our sound puzzles are light activated. Once new batteries have been installed, it is best to use your puzzle in a brightly lit room. When you remove a puzzle piece from the board you will see a little circle - that is the light sensor. Once the sensor has been exposed to light, you will hear the sound when you replace the puzzle piece back into the board. Best, Chelsea

mom - 5 years ago, Verified purchaser
horrible puzzle. super dissapointed. if you put a piece in the wrong spot, the sound still goes off and tells you about the state anyways. misleading. would return it if it wasnt already open. the pieces are also cut really poorly so they arent even the shape of the states.

Scary old lady - 5 years ago, Verified purchaser
I bought two puzzles for my great grandchildren (two families). They are great tools for learning and they love they puzzles. However, one sound works fine but the other says the wrong states and several at a time or nothing at all, or rambles on and on. We don't even use the sound at all on that one. The children are learning about the Coasts, North & South, landmarks, Oceans, products of each state and much more while having fun. The quality of the parts are fine with the exception of the one with the sound/speech issue. The price is ok for the product.
