Product Description

CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.

Colorful wooden letters in their proper places to spell words on the cutout 8 inch two-sided wooden boards. Sixteen playful pictures with three and four letter words keep learning fun!

This toy has also been evaluated by National Lekotek Center, a nonprofit organization dedicated to making the world accessible to children of all abilities. Lekotek offers the following additional information:

Place each wooden letter in its proper place on the recessed game board to form three- and four-letter words. This activity also helps develop and refine fine motor skills as children practice placing each letter correctly. Reduce the frustration of seeing too much information at once by using only one board at a time. In addition, colorful graphics provide visual cues to assist with word association and inspire learning. Set includes 10 two-sided boards with letters. Caution: Contains small parts.

We bought this for our 19-month old son, despite the recommended age levels. There are eight three-letter words & eight four-letter words on wooden planks. Each plank features a word on each side & brilliant, colorful paintings of the items--i.e. cat, dog, hen, pig, cow, bus, car, sun. The toy has cut-outs of individual alphabet letters to insert into the plank in a puzzle-like fashion. This is a wonderful tool for tactile learning, & I was impressed with the number of activities to devise using the toy.

For our son, we get out one plank at a time & only the letters that spell those specific words. It would be best to provide guided instruction--not just hand a child every piece of the set & expect him/her to figure it out on his/her own. It can be overwhelming to younger children, but if you take it slowly, one word at a time, it is an effective sort of training for recognizing letters & how to spell words.

The only improvement that I would suggest is to somehow add a sound button inside the puzzle fittings. That would provide an auditory element that may be helpful for certain types of learners.

This product would be better if it didn't spell the words for you. I use it more for my 2 1/2 year old, but it even seems to easy for him. He doesn't have to try to sound out the word and guess "what does bus start with" because it's already spelled for him. With that said, I think it's a great beginning tool for young children just beginning letters and sounds.

      Comments about Melissa & Doug Deluxe Wooden See and Spell:

      We have these in my early childhood classroom and I purchased these for my friend's child's birthday. Even without the picture cards, the child can use the letters to form words and makes great language work. I do recommend it with one caveat. The letter 'a' isn't the written 'a' most people use and the 'i' is connected. I would have hoped the 'i' is disconnected so the dot and the letter is separated. Otherwise, makes a decent spelling tool.

          My 2 year old is identifying all of the pictures on each board, naming the alphabetic letters that spell the word, then using her fine motor abilities to place each letter in its own puzzle spot. Great for learning!
