Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Educational and FunMy three-year-old loves this puzzle! She has had it for several months now. At first it was a bit tricky for her, because the states would move around on her, but now she has figured it out and can complete it by herself. Yes, it is made of a heavy-duty chipboard, so it may not last for years and years like many of the wooden puzzles, but she loves putting it together, and I love that she is learning her states.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AEich from Vibrant Colors; Cute GraphicsI bought this puzzle for my nephew. He enjoys puzzles and since my favorite as a child was one with the states, I thought I'd gift him with this one. I really liked the colors, graphics, and overall modern look. I was very satisfied with the size, quality, and look when we received it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mama42 from Amazing!I bought this puzzle after my kids showed interest in learning the states. Love this!! My 3 year old now recognizes several of the states by shape. She recently identified Maine on a refrigerator magnet. I am so impressed with this product. The kids enjoy playing with it and I love that they are learning!

Rated 4 out of 5 by jeeplant from Good for the priceGood basic states puzzle. Information on the pieces difficult to see due to the size and seams on the pieces.

Rated 4 out of 5 by OakCliffMom from Fun & EducationalLove the graphics, colors, etc. and I'm looking forward to introducing geography to my 2-year-old. Disappointed that Oklahoma City is located improperly on the map; it is labeled where the city of Tulsa, OK is located. Otherwise a great puzzle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Cute PuzzleI bought this for my almost 4 year old after she was learning about the US in school. She is pretty good at puzzles and she usually does 48 pieces. This is 45 pieces and she had a little trouble with the smaller states. She has fun asking me what the names are all the states are.

Rated 4 out of 5 by fabwon from Learn the StatesThis is a fast way to get your school aged child to known their states. Each puzzle piece gives a unique tidbit about it's state.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JaneJasmine from Nice puzzleMy 4.5 year old enjoys learning the names of states, although it's a little tricky for her to pop out some of the pieces. The pictures are super cute, and the chipboard is relatively durable. Over time I can see this puzzle getting frayed at the edges, but for now, it's been a fun game for her.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kalliebrynn from Best States MapI love this map. The color coded states are even easy for my two year old, who is starting to recall state names and just enjoys fitting all of the pieces back together. It's lightweight, which is great. And the little illustrations on each state are interesting for my tot. I wish the construction was a little better, however. The top layer of the puzzle has come off of some of the pieces, which I use permanent double-sided tape to re-affix. And from the pieces being used over and over, the cardboard edges start to wear, which makes the pieces more difficult to fit together. But so far, it's still in pretty good shape, and at this amazing price, it wouldn't be a terrible thing to have to buy another one after a lot of wear and tear.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MW321 from You get what you pay for.It was $8, so I shouldn't complain, but the scale is a little off. I bought this for my friend's kids, who I discovered have no idea where anything is in America. This will be a start but I will have to explain a few things...

Rated 2 out of 5 by lauralb from hard to handleThis is a cheaply made puzzle. The states were hard for little hands to manuver. It won't last to repeated use.
