I bought two of these puzzles for birthday presents (for a 5 and 6 year old).
My first thought was, I wish they had pacakaged it in a "puzzle box" instead of a pouch, so that it would have a photo of the completed puzzle...like when you buy a puzzle at the store. Then the child would have a picture on the front of the box to reference as they work on the puzzle. It is a little to hard for young children to figure it out without a picture. So, I put the puzzles together myself and took pictures of them to include in the pouch before giving them as gifts.
Also, I had to glue the corners of two pieces because the cardboard was already splitting.
I paid $12 each because they were on sale (plus shipping--total $30 for two) and probably wouldn't buy them again for that price. They are only worth about $4-5. So, it's spendy for what you get, but the kids will probably like having a personalized puzzle.
