You have probably already seen this on my blog as it became a fast favorite as soon as the box was opened! I had Ladybug in mind when I chose this product to review, but the boys have played with it non stop too!
The set comes with large cards which tell you the pieces you need to construct each letter and how to construct both the upper and lower case. Ladybug and I had fun going through and making tons of letters together!
After we made them, we spread them out and I yelled out a letter for her to run to!
Even though it’s called the “Letter Construction Set” it is definitely not limited to just letters! We made shapes and jumped to those too!
This set is a fabulous way to reinforce a letter of the week, if you do that like we do! You may have seen us using these in our Letter N Tot School post!
As for the boys, they weren’t really interested in making letters, but more in creating anything they could think of! Here Krash was working on an umbrella…
We made people, and he is working on a “cup for Rita’s Water Ice". He ended up making an entire Rita’s store, with multiple cups of water ice!
Even PacMan at age 10, has had TONS of fun with these. They now have a home in our schoolroom toy storage area, with a brand new bin of their own! This is where we keep the most played with learning toys.
My thoughts…I LOVE these! They came in a box all “stuck” together and were a bit difficult to pry apart, but with help of a flat head screwdriver to pry a few of the difficult ones, it was fine. The only frustration has come when a few of the designs we have created haven’t stuck together and the part where they connect seems a bit loose. They snap together with these little circles and most of them worked perfectly, but every now and then we had some that were loose and had to be careful lifting up our creations! Overall this is a fabulous product for many reasons and for many ages of children! You can purchase these on Amazon here, and also directly on the Learning Resources website.
