Every child should have 2 sets of these. My 15 month old grandchild already know the alphabet. You can use these in so many ways. On the frig, or put them in a bowl and have them pick out the letters. Just making letters part of daily life helps them learn, they aren't even being taught a formal lesson. You should also buy 2 sets, so when the child is in school, you can use them to practice spelling words. Children are able to feel the shape of th letter in their hands which helps learn faster through another sense, not just visual. Highly recommeded!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sydney's Mommy Great letters. Very durable
These letters are great. We are only using the upper case set of letters right now to try to get my daughter to learn her alphabet, but she loves playing with these on the fridge. We starting using these during a period where she was putting things in her mouth. I was a little worried with them being wood how they would weather being chewed, but they stood up surprisingly well. They are easy to attach for small hands, and I love using these to teach her letters instead of all the "talking toys" out there, and there are no batteries to replace!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by GramSquared after reading other reviews about missing or double letters, I took a chance and ordered them. All letters were included in the box to my relief. My 2 1/2 yr old grandson knows his whole alphabet with all capital letters and is now learning his lower case. We make an "Alphabet Train" on the floor with the Capital letters and have him match the lower case letters to the Capitals. They are of good quality as all Melissa & Doug Products are. The magnets are thin but strong and and are very well secured to the whole bottom of each letter so no worry.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by ETolbert Poor Quality
Upon the first use of these magnets the front colored panel started to peel off. (no, we weren't rough and no we did not get them wet) When it peels a piece of the wood comes off which can be dangerous. At first I thought just one of the letters was defective, but after a couple uses the other magnets also started to separate. Normally, I am pleased with Melissa and Doug products but this one was incredibly disappointing. Based on the price, I feel the consumer deserves a safe, quality product and we certainly did not get that.
