Its challenging but my toddler loves working on it with my help
This layered wooden puzzle is AWESOME! The layering is unique and fun and the pieces are nice quality wood that will last a long time. I was excited to give such a nice gift to my nephew.
My 3year old son love it.
Our little one has clearly moved pass the one-piece-one-hold puzzles. At the same time, he's not quite ready for ~15 piece puzzles from a major kids brand. This is described as appropriate for 1-3 yr olds so we thought it might offer a good transition. I'm skeptical that any 1 year old would make progress on this puzzle. Our recently 2-yr old sometimes puts pieces in the right place, but multiple layers means pieces from multiple vehicles... which is definitely harder.
We've also experienced a little curling of the wood of some of the pieces -- which matters more in a stacking puzzle. At 2, our little one really doesn't put much (besides food) in his mouth. These pieces must taste good because a wheel or two definitely ended up there. Perhaps that explains the slight curling on other pieces, perhaps not. At minimum, another reason they're probably not appropriate for a 1 yr old.
Curling aside, it's a really nice puzzle. Fun theme. I think our little one is close to making real progress on it, but it may fall in a bit of a limbo between 2nd and 3rd birthday. Probably ideal for a gift-giving holiday in the middle. Feels like it could be late by the 3rd birthday.
