Really nice product, colourful and very pleasing on the eye. This was great for our family as we got dual use out of it for 2 different children. My 3 year old enjoyed fitting the correct shapes in the correct places whereas my 6 year old enjoyed ordering the alphabet to practice his learnings from school. The pieces were easy to hold and slot in. This did help them with the alphabet and my 6 year old loved sorting the alphabet. We have not tried spelling words yet but will do and I can foresee that it definitely help with spelling words.I think it is very educational for shapes colours and the alphabet. I am not sure if it will help build vocabulary. My child did enjoy learning letters and words. The children played with this a lot and enjoyed building towers from the bricks also. This was played with in the playroom. Definitely kept them entertained as there are multiple ways to use the toy for a range of ages. This is a great fun educational toy. I think this would be a great toy to have in nurseries and schools for children. My 3 year old loved sorting the shapes. I liked the fact it could be used for multiple purposes for different ages. I think the age suitability is ideal. I think the price for this is very reasonable. I would buy this toy. I would recommend as I think it would be a long lasting toy that benefits multiple stages of a child’s development. Overall I thought this was a really good toy. It can both be used in fun ways and educational. It was also great that it suited multiple age groups. My 3 year old loved sorting the shapes and my 6 year old enjoyed sorting the alphabet. They also used them for free play building towers and other games. It is very reasonable for £14.99 and I think it would be long lasting throughout child’s development.

The packaging was underwhelming but probably better for the environment. I think the concept is good to develop recognition of the Alphabet and to encourage an understanding of the order and how to create small words. The blocks are a good size. But maybe the slots could be slightly deeper so that they stay in place. As my son already knows the letters of the alphabet I wouldn’t say it helped . But was a good test of his letter recognition. This has not helped him sell words just yet but as he learns to read this toy could be helpful. I think he enjoyed the fact the blocks were different shapes but I believe the font of the letters could be more distinct so that you can differentiate certain letters that appear similar in lower case. This was played with a few times each week. Mostly played with on the living room floor. Without adult assistance or interaction, his level of entertainment was limited and so play time was fairly short. For me personally I think it is okay but it could be improved. The colours and shapes used are nice touch. Possibly suitable for nurseries, as the colours and shapes will attract the attention of smaller children. But maybe they would need to consider having a booklet of activities and ways to use the toy. My son liked the shapes and slotting them into the holes. I liked the bright colours used. I think you could possibly use it at age 2 for letter recognition and understanding shapes. It is not a bad price but not much to it so could be a little cheaper. I think the font used on the blocks had myself and my son, having to double check which was which. And seeing as he knows his alphabet, had me concerned that this could be a setback rather than a support tool. Also I feel that he was not interested in playing with it that much. I would not recommend as I am not sure it stands up to other products in terms of competition or is a particularly helpful product. The idea behind the product is good, but with multiple similar toys in the market I am not sure this stands out above the rest. The product is a decent concept but maybe a few adjustments could be done to make it a little more exciting and engaging for children. Julia Roye – Kanan 4 Years

I liked that it was wooden, it’s nice to have wooden toys instead of plastic and it was very colourful. I think it’s nice to have it all on a slot tray the different shapes are fun too. The blocks were easy to hold and fairly easy to put in the slots although some of the shapes trickier than others and perhaps the tray indents could have been a little deeper so they didn’t slip out. I’m not sure it helped him learn the alphabet we talked about the letters and he could recognize them but the order was a bit tricky for him to master he got a bit distracted by putting the right shape in the right hole versus the alphabet itself. We spelt some short words with the letters but we find flash cards more helpful for learning words. I think it’s a good educational toy I’m not sure vocabulary is so helpful again we’ve found other games and flash cards more helpful. My son does enjoy learning letters and words and we talk about the sounds they make. This was played with about once a week he enjoyed playing with the blocks as much as the letters. This was played with at home in our living room on the floor rug. It did keep him entertained as he enjoyed matching the shapes and playing with the blocks. It’s a very nice quality toy and helpful for identifying letters, we made some words but I didn’t find it as easy as a teaching item as flash cards, word snap etc. It would be nice for nurseries but they’d have to be careful not to lose any of the blocks I wish it had a box or case to keep them in because they easily fall off. My son liked the different shapes of the blocks and slots. I liked the wooden quality of it. I agree the age suitability is ideal but my one year old also liked playing with the colourful blocks. I think this is reasonable value but I’d have liked a box or case too. I would consider buying this. I would recommend as a complimentary learning toy but not as the main method. I liked the board and the bright blocks but I wish the slots for the blocks were slightly deeper so they didn’t easily slide or fall out and I would have loved a case or box because I’m always checking we still have all the letters and they easily get lost which would be a shame.
