This attractive set of 33 painted wooden blocks of 3 sizes (13 2″x2″, 16 1″x1″ and 4 1″x2″) displaying letters (upper and lower case) numbers 0-9, as well as basic punctuation and mathematical symbols. All blocks store easily in the storage bag, or function as a “puzzle” to put back in the cardboard package.

Our youngest testers practiced grabbing, and the toddlers started stacking. Preschoolers hunted for letters and numbers and colors. Some PreK-ers wanted to make the alphabet into a line, and others wanted to count all the blocks. Older siblings demonstrated their addition and subtraction skills and made up games of “what’s missing?” to try and stump anyone in sight.
