This is cute and seems like it'll hold up (we'll see; it's for our nature center's exhibit area!). I'd call it a 4.5 if I could, but can't. The nit-picky thing that I would bring up is a small thing and I'm not sure how *I* would design it differently, given the chance, or if would be better.
The two puzzles are connected together in a three-panel folding style thing. For one of the puzzles you open up the flaps and your pieces are on one "page" and the spot you would transfer is right next to it. The other puzzle, however, you have to flip things around back and forth. It's just a little awkward for small hands, I imagine. I wish there were "blank space" around the edges of the puzzle workspace, though that makes the booklet larger so that there's somewhere to put pieces that you're working on besides on your lap (otherwise you simply move the lower right corner from the one page onto the lower right corner of the next, for example) BUT! It seems good quality and fun.
We're having a forest animals themed party and this pair of puzzles is too cute. I like how they're magnetic, which makes it easier to keep all the pieces together!
