"My son is 18 months old. His grandparents got this puzzle for him about two months ago. At first, I thought he wouldn't understand how to do it, since the age recommendation was 3 years and up, and you have to have pretty good fine motor skills and control to swing and hold the fishing pole magnetic just right over the pieces in order to pick them up. After about a week, he was a pro with it, picking up the pieces patiently. I was impressed and started teaching him the names of the sea creatures. This toy is entertaining for him and teaches him patience and fine motor skills. It is well made and not noisy!! We love it." - Shanti
"I am an early intervention speech-language pathologist. I work with children aged 0-5 and I use this puzzle with all of my children who are old enough to sit up independently. For very young children, it helps with fine motor skills like grasping and visual tracking. For older children who are able to play with the toy independently, we work on turn-taking, labeling the creatures and matching. I would recommend this product to parents and caregivers. It's lots of fun for bigger kids too!" - Sheila
"Each puzzle piece is made of thick, durable wood with a small magnet attached to the front of each piece. This game is well constructed and works better than most fishing games do. It really helps to develop fine motor skills and has not lost its appeal to my son even after months. It has also helped him learn the name of all the sea animals in this puzzle which has been great to see. I love the educational value! Fantastic fun and a great toy for any toddler!" - Ben
