Alphabet blocks are a staple in any toddlers toy colletion. I like the Fun Club ones because they are reasonably priced, and they come with a storage bag! The storage bag is such a conveniance for an organized mom. I get tired of all the toys with a million peices that get lost, and this really helps me to have fun with my child when we play. I don't have to worry about where they are going to go when we are done. This block set comes with 50 peices. All sides show something educational, such as the alphabet letters and numbers (in color) and animals and pictures (in brown). I have seen an improvement in letter recognition already, as a result of block play. These blocks teach a number of skills, such as stacking and building, as well as improve motor skills. You can set up mathematical equations, and there are enough letters to spell many simple words. These blocks are wooden, and made of solid construction, so they are durable and worth the money you spend. I really love the motor skills these blcoks have my child to master, and I can just see her brain grow as we play! I would recommend these blocks to a friend based on their price, accessory bag, and play value.
