Sound quality is poor, but otherwise niceOct 01, 2004
My son loves this and enjoys the realistic animal noises. The pictures are attractively and realistically painted. There is a good selection of farm animals.
- the sound quality is very poor. It sounds tinny and distorted.
- the sounds are activated by a light sensor, which is covered when the puzzle piece is replaced. Unfortunately, this means they will also sound when the lights are turned off unless the pieces are in place. It has scared the bejeesus out of me when I've turned off the light in his room.

Cute toy, buy annoyingJun 13, 2007
By S. Montana
We bought this puzzle for our daughter, who loves farm animals. The sounds are great, and the quality high, but there's one problem. The sensors in each piece's slot that cause the sounds to be made are way too sensitive. We found that turning off the lights (in either the room the puzzle was in, or an adjacent room) would set off one of the sensors, and a "mooo" would inevitably be heard. You have to cover up the entire puzzle (a heavy floor pillow works) to avoid this. I don't know why they didn't make the sensors mechanical - otherwise this is a great puzzle.

Great customer service!!!Jun 29, 2006
My parents had purchased this puzzle at a children's boutique a few hours from home. We discovered once it was open that the sounds did not work. I was disapointed because there was no chance that we would drive back to return it. Instead I called the 1-800 Melissa and Doug number and described the issue to the person on the phone. They were very nice and appologized for the problem. They shipped us a new puzzle at no cost. Great Customer Service!!! The new puzzle works great and my 18 month old loves it. She has learned all the sounds and it really keeps her entertained better than a "regular" puzzle.

Poorly manufacturedJul 18, 2005
By DJ Joe Sixpack
We got one of these as a gift, and couldn't get the back panel for the batteries to open. Tried using a small philips screwdriver, a safety pin, etc., and it simply would not open. The lack of sound was disappointing, though our child still liked the pretty puzzle. We got another battery-activated Melissa & Doug toy that was also a failure -- the "Vehicle Sound Block" toy that is supposed to make the sounds of the vehicles when the blocks are lined up correctly. We could get the batteries in, but the toy simply didn't work. No sound, no nothin.' This company seems to do well with plain wood toys, but when they branch out into electronics, the products are fairly shoddy. I plan to avoid their products in the future.

Nice!Nov 19, 2005
Bought this for our 15 month old son. He loves it! Really enjoys the animal sounds and has learned them quickly...esp. the dog! No trouble with the battery compartment opening or with noise distortion...but the animal sounds are a little interesting! But, BEWARE...am agreeing with a previous review...when you turn out the lights, any open puzzle spot will sound! Might give you a slight scare or might wake up your sleeping child!
Otherwise, a really nice learning toy!
