Why have a boring puzzle that is silent when you can have a Melissa and Doug Sound Puzzle? Remove the pieces from the puzzle and the sound relating to that piece will play. With 8 pieces to place and remove, there are loads of sounds to hear.The puzzle has light activated sensors so it works best in a brightly lit room.Many people don’t know but Melissa and Doug are real people – they started the company and are still the main driving force behind it. They have 6 kids of their own and all of their toys go through product testing from their harshest critics! From their offices in Connecticut in America, they make all of their prototypes from design to the completed item, before it goes off to the factory to be made. Their mission in this technological age is to bring back childhood and toys.
