GeoPuzzles are jigsaw puzzles that make learning world geography fun! The pieces of a GeoPuzzle are shaped like individual countries, so children learn as they put the puzzle together! Geopuzzles help to build fine motor, cognitive, language, and problem-solving skills, and are a great introduction to world geography for children 4 and up. Designed by an art professor, jumbo sized and brightly colored GeoPuzzles will soon be available for all 5 major continents. GeoPuzzles are durable and come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. They are made from recycled material, because we wouldn't want to tear up the earth to teach kids about it :-)

The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because over half the board is Canada, I have no objection to Canada but its inclusion meant that several little states were combined in one piece. I would have preferred just the US but I can see from a marketing perspective why they did both.
I am really disappointed in this puzzle and Amazon has issues with the Product Features and description. (I will let them know)...
I was looking for a good useable puzzle that has the shape of each state in the US... (ie..trying to re-create a fun family pastime of putting the US puzzle together in the quickest time and once you were so good at it you got blindfolded and had to do it all by shape.)... The product features mentioned Jumbo sized pieces (not true)...but since I ordered both the US/CDN and World puzzles I see the box top of the World Puzzle indicates "Jumbo" (still not true) but the US/CDN does not reference "Jumbo sized".
Each US state does not have its own piece shaped like the state. (VA & WV are together, MD,DE & NJ are one piece hooked to the Atlantic Ocean , VT, NH & MA are all one piece as well).
The cardboard stock of the puzzle is not thick and out of the box we have many pieces that are warped or "popped-up" - making it extremely frustrating for a 7 and 9 yr old to put together.
The puzzle is 17" x 17" but from the top of ND to the bottom of TX is only 6.5" ... I believe the designer was trying to stay true to actual sizes of land mass - but since GeoPuzzle doesn't have a USA puzzle alone I didn't think this would be as much of an issue as it is. More than 2/3 of the depth of the puzzle is NOT the US. Also since many of the CDN territories are divided on solid lines, there are minimal "jigsaw interlocking" pieces in this puzzle. There is no way you could move it after assembling because many pieces are just aligned next to each other. This is the drawback of puzzles shaped as the state/territory.
The colors are brilliant, I appreciate the State Capitals printed on each state, and the labels on the Oceans. My kids do love putting it together but I think I need to buy a wooden puzzle for possibly three times as much money to get what I am remembering from childhood.
My three star rating is in response to the quality of the cardboard - and the fact that the USA is only 1/3 of this puzzle. I really think GeoPuzzle should look to make a USA alone version in addition to their existing line. They already have HI in a small box on the side - they could do the same with AK.
Also a word about the customer service...fabulous. Our puzzle happened to be missing a piece down in the Pacific Ocean. All it took was a quick call to the company and they're dropping the missing piece in the mail without question.
