I bought this puzzle for my father who has Alzheimer’s Disease. He’s now living in a care facility where the caregivers work to keep the residents alert and engaged in activities. Some of the residents don’t track well enough to do even this level of puzzle but Dad and several others enjoy it greatly. Today 4 residents (including Dad) and I worked the puzzle and they were thrilled to be successful in placing the states where they belonged. While doing the puzzle each participant would add bits of their personal history when a state name was familiar to them. Once the puzzle was complete each participant stated (and located) the state in which they were born…the state where they attended university…and other states they’d lived in or visited. To get this level of interaction required my assistance but they all had a great time! A plus is that the next time we do the puzzle most of them will have forgotten they’ve already done this and so will experience the success of using it all over again. (Family members of AD victims look for the small victories.)
I’m going to take them the solar system one next.

I have to disagree with the review that says that this puzzle is not good for little kids. I have a daughter who just turned 4 a couple of weeks ago and is also autistic. She loves this puzzle and has learned how to use the box cover to properly place the states. I am glad that they are in the individual shapes of the states. It’s not a jigsaw puzzle. It teaches kids where the states are located and is terrific for little ones and older ones. Even I have a good time with this.

My 3 year old received this puzzle as a gift for his 3rd birthday. I wasn’t so sure if he was ready for the puzzle at the age of 3, but within couple of months together with his cousins he started putting the pieces together. He is now 3.5 yrs. and knows how to complete it all by himself. it takes him less than 10min to complete the whole puzzle. I give ten stars.
