Pros: 1) The size of these tiles is great for storage and for the little fingers of children to manipulate. 2) The tiles are made of a rigid plastic that seems like they will last for a very long time.
Cons: 1) Despite the fact that there are 176 tiles in this tub, there aren't enough for me – a teacher – to use with more than two students at a time. Obviously, there are multiples of every letter, however, there are only 2 or 3 tiles of several letters. 2) Some tiles are completely interchangeable (W/M; i/L [lowercase L and capital i]; d/p; b/q). This might be handy if you want to be able to change the letters used, but as a teacher, this is something that I would avoid. The last thing you want when teaching children about letters and sounds is any opportunity for them to become confused with how to position a letter. In an attempt to rectify this problem, I drew lines at the bottom of all tiles - red on vowels and black on consonants. Unfortunately, there was nothing to be done with the M/W problem. Capital Ms should not have slanted lines on the sides. It may seem minor, but when you're working with little kids that are just learning how letters look and how to write them, even this small issue can cause confusion for them. 3) A very minor problem is that the ink on some letters is somewhat smeared.
I was unsure how interested my boys would be with this toy, but my 3-year-old and 17-month-old have been playing with this non-stop since they got it yesterday. It was given to them as an Easter present, and it is by far their favorite toy out of everything they received in their baskets. The 17-month-old loves the clanking sound of taking them in and out of the bucket and bowls, and as he observed my older son and I sorting them by color this morning, he picked up a red cat and exclaimed, "red!" As for the 3-year-old, I had gotten him the Carson-Dellosa Hundreds Pocket Chart from Amazon Carson-Dellosa Publishing CD-5604 Hundreds Pocket Chart with 100 Number Cards a while back, which up to now he's only shown a vague interest in. Well, we sorted the 5 colors into their corresponding bowls and then put each animal by color group on the chart, counting as we went, all the way up to 100. Again, we just got this yesterday, and with just a little help he is already counting to 100! I cannot stress enough how well the animal counters, bowls, and 100s chart go hand-in-hand to give your child a visual understanding of numbers. He already recognized numbers 0-9, and now that he can place objects on the 100s chart and count as he goes, he's understanding how to read the other numbers as well! The only caution is to obviously supervise your kids and put this away somewhere safe when they're done...otherwise, pieces will end up all over the house or alltogether lost. Otherwise, one of the most well-received and fun educational investments we've made.
1. There are more counters (100 instead of 50)
2. There are five animals instead of just one
3. I have enough "cups" around for sorting
4. They were actually a little cheaper when I purchased them
I am extremely happy with the purchase. Both my three year old and my 15 month have played with these several times in several different ways - that is what I really like about this toy is that it is versatile and can be used for teaching many different skills. It can be used for sorting (either by color or my animal), for counting, adding and subtracting and it can also be used to make patterns.
