    Highly Recommend

    I think everyone has played this at some point in their life. I love the classic look and got it as a Christmas gift for the family. It was a great hit. Everyone was trying it throughout the day.

    I love my puzzle!

    This puzzle is a nicer version of the old school, cheap plastic ones I had when I was a kid. I've always loved this puzzle and now I have one that will last forever! There are, however, two drawbacks: One is that you have to use the puzzle somewhat flat because the pieces will just slide on their own. Ironically, the second drawback is that the pieces sometimes get stuck. Regardless, I am still happy with my puzzle and would recommend it for anyone who's always loved playing this game.

    No interest from our 8, 10, and 13 year old granddaughters, who we bought it for.

    Bad choice for us.

    Brought back my childhood!

    I remember having a plastic number puzzle game as a child. So when I saw this new metal one I had to have it. I had fun playing with it and introduced it to my daughter who had no idea what it was. It's a fun, mindless game that passes the time.

    Greatest sliding puzzle, very nostalgic, high-quality.

    I've bought three of these puzzles as gifts. The teens I bought them for really like them even though they are not electronic. The number games are nicely-made, sturdy.
