Geography comes to life in this cardboard floor puzzle, featuring 51 pieces cut to the shape of the state or region. This colorful map is 2 feet x 3 feet when assembled, with extra-thick pieces and an "Easy-Clean" surface that keeps it looking new.
This puzzle is better than I thought it would be. My 4 year old loves puzzles and has been interested in learning about maps and finding where we live so I thought this would be good for her. I didn’t realize the pieces are actually in the shape of each state! The little pictures on the states are a nice touch and helps her figure out where they go by looking at the picture on the box. Much cooler than our other more simple floor puzzles.
pretty much a state on each
It is as colorfully bright as on the website. The pieces are kind of big; pretty much a state on each. My age 6 grandson put it together by himself within 30 minutes. Then I had him match the state quarters with the states.
Great puzzle to use while learning the States and Capitals
I bought this puzzle along with a smaller board puzzle, this was the most helpful for my 10 yr old. He has to know the states and capitals for Core Curriculum testing in 5th grade. He liked this puzzle because the pieces stayed together once attached. I liked it because it was easy for him to take sections of the puzzle, like they are presented in school, and study just that section of the US (NW, SW, Central, SE etc…)
They love it.
Bought this for my 7yr old son and daughter. They love it.
Very durable, home school resource
I bought this puzzle – Melissa and Doug USA Floor Puzzle, 51 “Easy Clean” Jumbo Pieces – to replace a wooden one I have had for years. The dog chewed up a piece of my wooden one, and every piece is important when you are teaching geography. I looked for another wooden puzzle, but didn’t find any I liked. I was worried this one would be flimsy, but the pieces are as thick as the wooden puzzle I had!
Fun AND educational!
I bought this for my granddaughters for Christmas. Pre-K and first grade, the pieces were perfectly sized for their little fingers and the layout was such that they learned a couple of facts about each state as they put the puzzle together! Fun AND educational…this Mimi was pleased and would definitely buy again.
Extremely Well Made!
This is a great puzzle. The pieces are very strong. They do not fit together, they fit side by side so you don’t have to worry about the tabs breaking. The colors and printing is vivid and clear. I bought one years ago when my grandson was three. We had such fun and I was so amazed how this little guy could put it together. He memorized where all the states went. That was 10 years ago and the puzzle is gone. Now I have a new grandson and just bought this one for him. There is nothing not to love with this puzzle. It’s an excellent buy and thoughtful gift.
Good learning tool
My kids love the puzzle and it’s a great learning tool to help them focus on geography. Several of the larger states should’ve been separated but were included with the tiny NE states (shown in the photos.) Overall the puzzle is a great size. The state pieces shift often while trying to put it together but once the majority are in then it lessens.
Son loves it but just not holding up quite as expected
Let me start by saying that my son loves this puzzle. I love how big it is and that he is able to work it by himself just by looking at the picture. I think that this is a great introduction to all of the states. My only complaint is that it is not very durable. We have only had this puzzle for about 3 months and the edges of several pieces are already starting to fray. We have the firetruck floor puzzle which we have had for well over a year and a half and is still showing no signs of fraying despite frequent use. I am not sure if it is the way these pieces are constructed or what but they certainly don’t seem to be holding up as expected.
