This is a lovely tactile toy with chunky pieces to help children learn their uppercase letters. The sturdy letters are in a wide range of colours, including pink, orange, red, turquoise and green, and they fit snugly and securely into the shaped board so children can start to familiarise themselves with the letters of the alphabet. The letters are a good size and deep enough to stand well proud of the board, so children can lift them out easily. Each piece is free standing so they can be used for a range of early literacy skills. As with all Hape toys, this attractive puzzle is made with a commitment to sustainability, compliant with international safety and quality standards. Wooden toys have a lasting appeal and the excellent paint finish on this toy means it is durable and can be handed on from one sibling to another – or even kept to pass through generations. There’s also a lower case version of the puzzle available, offering even more learning opportunities.
