Fantastic quality magnetic letters
on 26 November 2015
I searched high and wide for a set of magnetic lower case letters for my 14-month old girl, to promote letter recognition and first experiences with the alphabet. These are sold as "wooden" letters, but are really compressed plywood with a thin plastic coating, but this is being pedantic really, as they are fabulous quality with a nice sheen. Some say the patterns are too busy; I disagree, they are fun! A great feature is that they do not have a round magnetic disk glued to the back, which may fall off and pose a choking hazard, but rather the whole reverse of each letter is magnetic, via a layer of magnetic coating. Another plus is the extra helping of vowels, so you can actually spell some words out with your child. We use them on the fridge freezer door, but plan to buy one of the magnetic notice boards when she is a little older. Letters also have dots above them, where appropriate (e.g. "i" and "j'), unlike some sets. Overall, a happy customer, 5*.
