The "ABC flash cards for young scientists" (the name on the product!) aka "Nerdy Baby ABC Flashcards for Very Young Scientists" (the name at Amazon), by NerdyBaby.

These are nice flashcards cards, although I have a few minor quibbles.

The cards do not come in a box/case. They arrive shrink-wrapped, and include a cloth bag (with drawstring) to store them in.

The deck consists of 26 cards, one for each letter of the alphabet. (There are an additional two cards with matching backs, one is the title card for the deck, and one is an ad for NerdyBaby.net (thankfully, they've now acquired nerdybaby.com).)

The cards are similar in size to traditional flash cards, being about 840 by 560 tab cards. Ok, that's nerdy...for those without a ruler that shows lengths in terms of quantity of tab cards (the punched cards used with computers), that's 152mm by 101mm (yeah, a silly millimeter longer), or for us Americans: 6" by 4".

Each letter card has a large hand-drawn uppercase letter in the upper left of the card, a picture/diagram in the middle, and a one to three word phrase at the bottom (with the key letter uppercase).

The backs are uniform, allowing for games to be played where the card identity is unknown.
The backs have a grey background, with a sprinkling of stars and about three "constellations" (all look vaguely like a centipede), along with six vaguely atomic diagrams labelled NerdyBaby.

For magicians...

The cards fan reasonably well (although a bit awkwardly due to their size).
The backs are one-way.

For nerds ... (the manufacturer's label ... I'd say "For the educated" (or, given my comments, "For the nitpickers" :))

The "B" card is incorrectly labelled "Binary code" instead of "Binary".
The "D" card has a picture of a dog, but is labelled "Diurnal" (which appears to be a poor choice ... pet dogs are generally diurnal, but wild dogs are crepuscular).
An opportunity was missed by having the "T" card be "Transverse wave" instead of "Transistor",
"U" be "Uvula" (instead of something else (perhaps "Uranus"?)).
The "Y" card is "Y chromosome", but confusingly has a large "X" and a large "Y".

But, let's leave the demesne of the nerd, and head back to reasonable-ville.

I suspect that many teachers would enjoy having these cards ... even if it's only to show them to other teachers.

BTW, my favorite is "E", for "Electromagnet" .. it looks like it would work!

I like these cards and my son does too, but the only downside is they are made of the flimsy laminate paper, so they bend and crease easily. For a baby, while they are spit proof, they are not really durable. I do sit with him to play with these, but every-time another and another gets all bent up. Still a winner with my little guy

I got these for my youngest granddaughter and actually all the grandkids like them because of the interesting twist over the usual ABC cards. The set does come with a small pamphlet that briefly explains each card; very helpful for the parents.

Even though this is marketed for very young children, the cards have been a great starting point for for different science and math concepts for the older kids. It has been a good way to expose them to new ideas without making it seem too much like schoolwork.

Purchased these as a baby shower present for some adorably nerdy friends. The flashcards are SO CUTE! Learning science can never start too early! And this was a perfect gift to stand out from the typical fuzzy blankets, whimsical onsies, and over-rated baby hats. The "baby" is now a year and a half, but I'm fairly certain his parents have spent more time with the present than him. Highly highly highly recommend.

OK, so Barney is driving you nuts and Little Golden Books seem puerile. Go Atomic! So what if your kid is almost 3 and has yet to say "algorithm"? You've got to start somewhere. Sooner or later, kids have to learn that linoleum and formica aren't really on the Periodic Table of Elements. At least not in this parallel universe.

The cards are a lot of fun for both my son and I. The cards are of course nerdy which makes me giggle and the bright colors of the cards capture his attention. The cards are flexible and glossy so that my son was easily able to manipulate the cards.

We framed these as decor for our nursery and they look amazing! Perfectly fit standard 4x6 frames. When we redecorate for a big kid's bed we'll use them for their intended purpose. Very cute and colorful!

more for the parents than the kids, hopefully will add a few IQ points. These are cool and I hope they come out with more stuff to help educate my young daughter.

Wonderful product! Tickles the nerdy relative's sense of humor while it builds vocabulary for later discussion and dissertation! Lamination lends itself to those 'sticky' debates!

The cards are just adorable, only comment is I wish for the price they were sturdier. At this age it is hard for them not to want to chew on them.
