These 50 flashcards are heavy and glossy, with bright pictures accompanying the text. We are using them with our 22-month old, who has heard Spanish from birth. While he already knows most of the words, I expect that the text will be helpful as he progresses with letters and eventually, reading. I'm thinking of attaching them to objects so that the words will be readily visible. The words are printed in English in small letters in the corner, which make the cards useful to those learning Spanish as a second language as well. A valuable and fun language-learning tool.
