Yes, that monkey did start howling on it's own. Of course this happened while my oldest daughter and I where up late watching scary movies lol. It took us a bit of time but we figured out why it was howling. So I will share that with you :) The sensor that makes the animals make noise is light sensitive. So if you store your puzzle board with the pieces in it, you won't get the random sounds. If you store the board face down without the pieces, you won't get random noises. If you do not have that monkey piece in the board and turn of the lights at night to start watching that next scary movie, then yes, yes that monkey will howl. LOL!!!
The puzzle is great honestly. My son plays with it daily.
As a learning toy, they are appropriate for younger toddlers, but can still be enjoyable and entertaining for older toddlers. In our house, the near 2-year-old is learning how to place the pieces and is learning the sounds of each animal. (It's nice to have sounds beyond just the basics. Sure, they learn the farm animal sounds from Old MacDonald, but this gives us a bit more variety...which is REALLY nice when you have toddlers who like to repeat things ad nauseum ALL. DAY. LONG.
We own THREE of the puzzles in this collection: vehicles, zoo, and farm. I would love to review them separately, as I would give two out of the three a 5-star rating. As it is, I have to give it a 4-star for a MINOR issue. This is purely due to some construction error in the particular piece we own. For some reason, our zebra is mildly haunted and will occasionally make sounds randomly if the puzzle is left unattended on a table. This is the only piece out of the three puzzles that does this and it doesn't happen all the time, so I just shrug it off. Especially since THERE IS AN ON/OFF SWITCH on the back. (Thank you ever so much to the designers who put that in...some days I need a few sound-free minutes.) Another reviewer commented that you couldn't play the puzzle in silent mode. For all of the versions we own, this is not the case. I can switch those babies off at any time.
There is a small sound delay when placing multiple pieces, so you won't hear the sound of a second piece until after the sound from the first piece finishes. This can be a little frustrating for toddlers on initial use, but I've found that it helps them learn patience. A few times playing with these puzzles and they quickly learn the quirks. It's totally a nonissue for us.
So...other than our poltergeist zebra, I give these puzzles a huge thumbs up. And hey...if you need a little extra surprise in your day, maybe random animal sounds can just add to your ambiance. For our house, these will get plenty of miles and I am very happy that we have them in our toddler puzzle collection.
As a random note, our puzzle makes the Zebra sound randomly -- nobody will even be in the room where the puzzle is, and we'll hear the zebra. A relative has a different Melissa & Doug puzzle that does the same thing. It's creepy!
