My daughter has enjoyed this cardboard block set. She enjoys the blocks because they stack tall, unlike her smaller plastic building blocks, which do not stand well on the carpeting. She often builds up the blocks, knocks them over, and starts over again.

She does not care about the pictures on the blocks, but she recognizes the letters, which are all written uppercase. Some of the blocks are difficult for a toddler to associate the picture with the letter (e.g. a rabbit with a rose for the letter "R," but most toddlers would see a bunny with a flower).

I have used the blocks for other games, such as "Memory" by hiding smaller objects (such a sock or paper) under the blocks and asking her to remember which object is under which block.

I would recommend this product for children aged two-years and older. The cardboard blocks could easily be damaged by a younger child, rendering the blocks unstackable.

I got this alphabet block set for my 16-month old daughter (even though the suggested age is 2+). She enjoys nesting toys in general, so I knew she'd like these. She also likes stacking the blocks up, and then knocking them over. When all stacked together, the blocks stand taller than her (she's about 31 inches). I'm sure when she gets older, she'll be able to use this toy to help her with learning the alphabet. Right now, it's all about the stacking and nesting. These blocks are very colorful and I'm sure she'll use them for a long time! Melissa & Doug did a great job with this one! These are different than other blocks - and the only storage space needed is for the largest block - all of them fit inside!

I love Melissa and Doug products, which is why I bought this w/o a second guess. I actually returned this due to the fact that it's made out of cardboard. I have a 2 year old, and a 6month old. I don't know about you.. but cardboard would not last in our house more than a week, my 2 year old would step, or fall and put a heavier toy on it, and crush it. and the 6month old will eat the edges, and I'm not sure I want her with cardboard mush in her mouth! however the WOOD version they have of these in AWESOME!

Verified Purchase
The toys usually are well made; these blocks are not! Spend a little more and get the wooden blocks they make with animals. If you want them for the alphabet get the regular blocks. These are poorly made of a thin cardboard wrapped in a sticker that has the printing and is meant to hold them together. They are VERY easily broken and came new with defects where the sticker didn't cover corners. I have two daughters that have many Melissa and Doug toys. I love all the other toys from them as do my girls.

10 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Emily Harmon on August 3, 2011
These are great blocks. They are visually very enjoyable and each block contains the actual letters, and then a picture of two or three corresponding objects that go with the letter. For example, A is an Alligator eating an Apple, C is a Cow blowing out Candles on a Cake. The tops of the blocks also contain stripes that can be counted from 1 to 10 on each block. They are brightly colored and made of quality cardboard and soy-based paints.

I mention the cardboard and soy-based paints because these are not good for young children and that was obviously taken into consideration when they were made. I had no idea when I bought them that they were basically cardboard boxes with stickers on them. My son had played with them and in a matter of minutes he had eaten the sticker off of it and chewed the cardboard! I then saw on the blocks that they are recommended for ages 2+, so if you're wondering why... there you have it! If you have older children that enjoy these but also have smaller children around, please keep an eye out. There is always the potential that they could chew the cardboard off and choke but as always, supervision is the key here! I also think that they could easily be stepped on and crushed, and they are quite difficult to stack because there will always be an open side where the blocks should nest. Regardless, I do love these blocks. I only wish the wooden version that M&D makes was as cute as these!

We have had these blocks for a year at least, and my son has spent much time stacking them and, his favorite, knocking them down. He is 2.5 now. The pictures are wonderful, and each drawing has at least two items beginning with the letter that it illustrates. For example, there is a cow with a cake that has candles on it, an alligator with an apple, a penguin wearing pearls and carrying a purse, etc. I have even enjoyed trying to find everything in a picture that starts with the letter.

I would definitely purchase these blocks again. They all fit into a box with a handle for carrying around.

The only downside is that they are not especially durable, being made of cardboard. The edges are worn and some of the pictures are peeling. But I just tape them down. My son doesn't care!

I do think we will continue to use these blocks to learn the alphabet for a long time to come; as long as they last.

We received these blocks as a gift about two weeks ago and we've already had to throw some blocks away. First of all, if your child chews on things, this is not the toy for you. My son has easily gnawed off bits of the blocks. Also, if the blocks are stepped on... they're not stong enough to withstand the weight entirely, but they are solid enough to hurt your childs feet. The outer covering also started peeling away on the top of the blocks. Bummer...
