This is a great sensory learning toy
I really love the concept of this activity. The playfoam beads are a great sensory tool for helping young kids learn how to shape their ABC's. It is very interactive, and promotes learning. I especially love how easy it is to clean up. I did this activity with my daughter who is 2.5, but I would recommend it for kids a bit older- 3.5 and up.
Fun toy that enhances learning!
From the moment my 5 year old saw this he was asking if he could play with it. It was easy to use and made no mess. I love that the foam does not dry out so it can be left out. Aside from making the letters on the car he enjoyed making shapes out of it that started with the various letters such as a banana for B, Really great toy. I would recommend this for anyone who is Pre-K to kindergarten age.
My 2.5 year old LOVES this product!
This is a great alternative to Play Doh and 100 times less messy. My 2.5 year old loves it. He's able to sculpt, build and play without a hardening, sticky mess. The alphabet cards are a great tool to continue learning/practicing our ABC's. My husband and I even enjoy it as well! I would highly recommend this product for those with younger and older kids as well - it is stress-free fun!!
Great for toddlers! Educational & Fun!
It's a rainy day today so we finally got to try out our @educationalinsights Shape & Learn Alphabet Set! It was a huge HIT in our house! My 4 1/2 year old daughter LOVED it! She has autism and has often struggled with varying textures and also staying focused on certain learning activities. Today she immediately grabbed for the foam without hesitation and commented how soft & squishy it was. She picked out a letter card and correctly identified it and the coordinating picture on the card. I gave her direction and she immediately understood the concept of squishing the foam to shape the letter by following the numbers & arrows on each card. My 2 1/2 year old didn't want to be left out so he quickly scooped up a card and yelled out "Elephant!" and made an elephant noise for the E letter card! The recommended age for this product is 3+ so I knew he was a bit under the recommendation but he LOVED playing with the foam too and he liked looking at the picture on each card and identifying what it was so we were able to use the cards in many ways. My daughter also used the cards for sounding out each letter and she thought of other words that also begin with that letter while she worked with the foam to shape it. My kiddos loved it and played with it for a long, long time. The good news for parents is that the foam NEVER dries out!!! NEVER! There's no mess like play-dough has and the clean up is so FAST and EASY! My kiddos loved this product so much that I will definitely be purchasing the Shape & Learn Numbers Set as well! This is a must-have product to help kiddos have fun while learning their letters and learning how to write them too! Fun, educational, and mess-free! YAY! Everyone wins! Thank you @educationalinsights for a great product that we will be using again and again!
My Kids Love It and No Mess
My little ones love this. They will sit for an hour at a time spelling out their names in their favorite colors. I love that they are learning while playing and also learning practical skills with shaping the foam. My favorite aspect though is the fact that there it is so easy to clean up. I dont have to worry about it being smooshed into the carpet or getting all over the place. This product keeps both the kiddos and this mom happy!
This would make a great gift - it's fun AND educational!
My kiddo is a bit young for this yet, but I can't wait to bring it out when he's past the phase of putting everything in his mouth! I know I personally learn better if I can work through something or take a more hands-on approach vs. just listening or reading something. Not only will these flash cards help my little recognize letters, but it'll also teach him how to construct the letters which will help it sink in quicker for him. I LOVE interactive and educational - this is a win win.
My 3 and 6 year old loved it!
My 3 year old and 6 year old played with this together. It really held their attention! I like that it came with plenty of playfoam so they could both play. My 6 year old already has a good grasp on her letters but she still enjoyed forming them and helping her brother. She also really liked creating other things with the foam. My favorite part is his easy it was to clean up!
I would buy this product again
I use this product as a teaching tool at my center FLORES FAMILY CHILD CARE. Some examples of how we use is product are as follows letter sounds and recognition numbers shapes hand eye coordination, sensory etc. The downside to this product would be with 12+ children we serve the cards are thick cardboard easy bending and must be lamented.
