This review is from: My First Scrabble (Toy)
I bought this for my nearly 4year old granddaughter who knows all her letter sounds so I thought it would help with word building and reading. However this is not a game like other Scrabble but more a learning tool, as only one can play at a time. It has the potential to be excellent but is let down by a few minor shortfalls. The letter a is in the wrong font for young learners and in level 1 instead if keeping to simple 3 letter words like cat, hen, sun, etc, double sound blends such as dr, fl, oo, oa are used which is a shame and unnecessary in level 1 as there are other levels to introduce them. The letters are colour coded which is a great advantage as children don't have to search through all the letters to find the ones they need, and also makes putting the letters back in their place easy. Another downside is the cards are very flimsy and will need to be laminated if they are going to last any time.
