About this item

Highlights

  • 8-piece wooden sound peg puzzle with realistic household sounds
  • Sounds play when pieces are lifted, stop when they are replaced
  • Lift a piece to reveal new picture of an activity happening in each room of the house
  • Encourages motor and auditory processing skills, problem solving, and narrative thinking
  • Makes a great gift for toddlers and preschoolers, ages 2 to 4, for hands-on, screen-free play

Description

Lift one of the eight peg puzzle pieces to see and hear what’s happening in each room of this busy house! This unique sound puzzle lets kids two and older discover an alarm clock waking up a child in the bedroom, the car engine roaring to life in the garage, breakfast sizzling on the stove in the kitchen, and much more. Replace the piece to immediately stop the sound and move to the next room! Kids two and older will love exploring the house and discovering new, full-color pictures under each piece, and learning what is making the realistic sounds. Our interactive, sturdy wooden puzzles for toddlers help develop fine motor skills and auditory processing skills, and encourages problem solving and narrative thinking.


Pediatricians say play with classics like blocks and puzzles can support early math skills. Puzzle play encourages logical thinking, goal setting, and patience. This puzzle makes a great gift for 2-year-olds, 3-year-olds, and 4-year-olds. Add the Melissa & Doug Farm Sound Puzzle to round out the puzzle play experience and give kids another engaging option for screen-free fun.

This item works for a few minutes before nothing working. I saw many comments show similar complaints. I did try playing with the puzzle in a well-lit room but it does not work as there is no sound.

Thank you so much for taking the time to email us. We take the quality of our toys very seriously, and are sorry to hear you are having trouble with your sound puzzle. Here are a few important details to know about our sound puzzles: They’re light-activated, and once new batteries have been installed, it’s best to use the puzzle in a brightly lit room. When you remove a puzzle piece from the board, you’ll see a little circle, which is the light sensor. Depending on the style, once the sensor has been exposed to light, you’ll hear the sound OR when you place the puzzle piece back on the board. If playing with your puzzle in a well-lit room does not make each piece “sound off” consistently, please reach out to Target directly for resolution with your issue. Best regards, Your Friends at Melissa & Doug

Be aware this puzzle functions with light/ bright area!! I’m saying this bc all the bad reviews saying it doesn’t work, and there is nothing indicating that in the description or images. The puzzle looks good quality and fun but my 2 yo doesn’t seem very interested, I keep putting it away and re-introducing in toy rotation but she doesn’t seem to be into it. Maybe it’s more fitting for younger kids?

Great puzzle, makes learning fun. Sounds are so true to each piece. Your child will love it. My granddaughter's favorite is the door because the door bell rings do loud and clear.
