We ordered these when we realized that our 2-year old had just about learned the ABCs already, and we thought these would be good for reinforcement as well as good old block-piling fun.
Our child loved them immediately and called out letters while pulling each block from the sturdy wooden tray that the blocks come in. The blocks are made from an attractive wood and the grain shows through nicely behind the letters and the pictures associated with each letter, that fill four of the six faces. We consider it a definite plus that each block shows the upper and lowercase form of each letter. We also like the fact that these are small enough for little hands, but big enough to give to a 2-year-old without worrying about a choking hazard.
One quibble: the blocks are not designed to provide any cues as to vertical orientation, either for letters or illustrations. The reason this matters is that the capital-M has spreading legs, which makes it basically *identical* in appearance to the capital-W, when either letter is upside down. It should have been possible to design the M with vertical sides, which would have reduced confusion and would teach the letter "M" in a form more likely to be found in other settings. Similar confusion applies to the lower-case "L" and upper-case "I", which look identical.
Quibble #2: some of the letter-related words that illustrate each block seem oddly chosen. For instance, "Ink" for the letter "I" -- how likely is it that a 21st century child will encounter an old-fashioned ink bottle anytime soon?

My daughter is almost 2. She has had these blocks for several months, and enjoys playing with them, stacking them, throwing them, and trying to name the pictures. So far the dog isn't attracted to them.
These blocks have great pictures and clear letters. I agree, however, with another reviewer's comments regarding M/W and some of the word choices, but in general they are great. So, we'll just have to explain somehow what Ink is. I'll bet we can do it.
I particularly like that the block holding tray is durable, and that the dimensions of the box allow for extra room (2 blocks worth) to make re-packing easy.
The blocks are a nice size, and the size and shape remain consistent between the blocks for easy stacking. I have not found any rough edges or splinters. So far the pictures have held up well.
These are high quality blocks that should be a satisfying toy for several years to come.

This is by far one of the best investments I have ever made- these blocks have been in my home for 5 years and have been thrown up and down stairs burried at the bottom of toy boxes and still are as good as new- they never fade, or wear I have two boys who love to play with them and what is even better is that they have both upper and lower case letters making it easy for my older son to notice and learn from, thanks for making such a wonderful toy.

We bought these toys when our daughter was 10months old, for her first christmas. She just loves them. She also recieved some of the old-fashioned "carved" blocks with the letters cut into them. Unlike these, she quickly chewed the paint off of some of the old-fashoined blocks. She has chomped on these pretty hard and they seem to put up with it with little damage. She bangs them together, chews on them and occationally stacks them. Though they are recommended for older children, i think we made a nice choice as she will be able to play with these for years in many different ways as her skills develop. Also, they are bigger than the standard blocks, so i dont worry about anything and she should be able to manipulate them a little earlier.

My daughter is one and a half, and she's had these blocks for about a year now, but only now is she really playing with them and identifying the little pictures. Some pictures are a little obscure, but all the basic animals and objects seem to be covered. I'm very pleased with how smooth the blocks are, and how well they are holding up. I feel they will really help my daughter to learn her letters, both in upper and lower case. My only problem is with the tray. It only holds the blocks if you keep it completely flat (as if a toddler can transport anything while keeping it level). I also don't like its sharp edges. My daughter went through a phase where she liked dumping the blocks out and then waving the tray around. Now the tray is stored out of reach and the blocks are stored in a small plastic bin.
