I received this product as part of an incentivized review program. I first gave the ABC blocks to my 2 year-old to play with. She loved looking at the letters, however they were a little harder for her to stack. I think if they were just a little heavier they would stack better. We also tried using them like a cookie-cutter in playdough. That worked great! I was a little worried about the playdough becoming stuck in the letter but when it did it popped right out! I also let my first and second graders use them in the classroom. They could stack them better than my 2 year-old but still struggled at times. They enjoyed using them to cut out letters from playdough to build their spelling words! Overall I think they work better as a cookie-cutter in playdough than they do for stacking. I loved that they came with a storage bag!

I received this product as part of an incentivized review program and liked the bright colors and the letter recognition for the toddlers. The 5 year old is practicing sight words so this was fun for him as well.

The reason I didn't give more stars is because we tried the play-doh idea on the box and it was quite difficult to get all of the play-doh out of the cracks and crevices. Since the box also says they cannot go in the dishwasher or be submerged, this made clean up that much trickier.

The other comment is the storage bag. While it's excellent that one was included (yay!) to keep everything in one place, it's not quite big enough for the kids to get everything in and then have the ability to close it. Maybe a ziplock type top or Velcro all across the top or a drawstring or something? You have to be coordinated enough to hold the top tightly enough to put the current Velcro strap around it and the little hands aren't big enough/coordinated enough yet which means they keep spilling out onto the floor/cabinet.

The product is well made, colorful, engaging and great for sight words (and more once they're older) but it's really tough to clean up if you try the suggestions on the box.

Comments about Learning Resources Learning Essentials Alphabet Building Blocks:

Great colors and fun to play with. It was nice to have multiple letter blocks of vowels. Fun to show kids how to stack, spell simple words and teach capital letters. It would be nice to combine the blocks with lower case letters as well. I have not tried stamping with the blocks but looks promising. I wonder if it is safe to use as cookie cutters. I like that it comes with a storage bag for easy clean-up.

    Comments about Learning Resources Learning Essentials Alphabet Building Blocks:

    Love the letters and the fact that they can stack however you cannot stack more than 3 letters easily without it falling. However that's the kids favorite part is the falling blocks!!! You can teach the alphabet and u can spell words as well. The other con is I ran out of ideas to play with them pretty quick.

      Comments about Learning Resources Learning Essentials Alphabet Building Blocks:

      These blocks are appealing with great color and easy storage bag. These blocks are used for spelling the alphabet. These blocks are sturdy and a nice size, easy enough for a child to hold but not eat and sallow. They are great for a classroom because you can use them to trace or to use in play foam. Overall these blocks are wonderful for teaching!

        This is fun toy that can be used in or out of water, in schools or at the beach! Bright and colorful, these letter blocks are loads of fun learning letters with play-do, sand, and even by themselves. A great tool for any teacher to have on-hand in daycare or pre-school.

          My 3 year old loves playing with this item. Rather it be picking out the letters or color sorting them, she is always thinking with it. The only thing I would say to change the storage bag as it comes open very easy and my daughter had a hard time closing it by herself.

            I received this block set free to review for my classroom. The blocks are very appealing with great colors and an easy storage bag. I added these to my blocks center for free play. The children have a very difficult time stacking the blocks. They are easy to topple and hard to balance more than two or three at a time. The students have enjoyed working this them putting them in ABC order and adding the blocks to the top of a block buildings they have, for example putting a D on top of a building by David. The only real draw back is that they are hard to stack on their own. They add some letter fun to the block center.

                We used the Letter Blocks to teach the children their alphabet. We also used the letters to teach the children how to spell. This set is good because it has more than one set of letters. For example, if you wanted to spell APPLE, you could because their are more than one P so they children learned to trace the stamps and spell all at the same time.
