Poor quality unlike most Melissa & Doug toysMay 13, 2005
By Aurora's Mama
I just purchased this cube puzzle for my soon to be two year old daughter. I was so very excited to introduce my little one to one of my favorite types of puzzles as a little girl. I was even more eager because she seems to love puzzles as much as I did. As soon as we got home from the store we ran to open the package and play with it together. She abosolutely loved them! I was very happy for all of two minutes when I realized the stickers were peeling on almost half of the puzzle cubes. I don't understand how the Melissa & Doug Comapany let this product out to the public. It is terribly contructed. I am sending these back immediately and will be searching for a similar replacement of better quality. I was genuinely surprised at the disappointment from a company that usually provides high quality learning toys. I definitely suggest you pass on this toy...

Paper on cubes peeling offMar 21, 2005
I bought this puzzle for my 2 year old daughter and within a few days, the paper on the cubes started peeling off. My daughter loves puzzles but she hasn't been interested in this one. I'm very disappointed in the quality of this product.

Great design, poor finish qualityFeb 04, 2004
By J B W
I gave this puzzle to my daughters (age 1.5 and 3.5) for Christmas. Practically the first day, the stickers started to peel here and there. It wasn't terrible, but it's obvious that over time this isn't going to hold up.
I'm terribly disappointed because I wanted such a neat puzzle to last for the grandchildren. This puzzle is advertised as a wooden puzzle, which implies quality construction. It may be made of wood under the stickers, but that doesn't mean it's going to last.
After purchasing the Cutting Food Box by Melissa & Doug, (which is a fabulous, durable, awesome toy) I foolishly assumed that this would be of the same great quality, probably with a painted-on finish. Or at least a layer of lamination over the stupid stickers to protect them!!!
Well, it's just typical cheap "made in China" junk.
I called the company to complain. The first lady I spoke to assured me that this was absolutely not supposed to happen, it must be that I just got a bad one. She told me she'd send me a new one right away.
Here I am, over a month later, no new puzzle has arrived. So I called again and spoke to a gentlemen who wasn't so helpful. Apparantly, they just entered my information today, so my puzzle should ship tomorrow. I can't believe it's taking them so long to ship me a new one. But I guess, since they've already taken my money I'm not a priority anymore.
To top it off, my replacement puzzle will be of the same construction, no improvements. I don't really even want it anymore, but the customer service guy "didn't know what else to tell me."
Well the bottom line is, don't waste your money on this one, at least not if you're expecting something long-lasting.

Great Idea - poor workmanshipMay 03, 2005
By W. Wise
I had a puzzle cube like this when I was a child and loved it! So I was anxious to get one for my 3 year old who loves puzzles. The idea is cute, but the pictures peel very easily. No point in having a cute puzzle if you can't see the pictures. Don't buy it! I'd hold out for something of better quality or get another kind of puzzle.
