What I like:
-common letters are repeated
-upper and lower case letters
-tiles are slightly elevated so it is easier to grab, as compared to if they were completely flat
-white background with black letters makes it easier to read
-I like that it comes with a tub that has a handle on it.
What could be improved:
-overall quality, some of the letters seemed like the print was coming off. They seemed cheaper quality than I would have expected, even given the price.
-no lines under the letters. Some of the letters are difficult to tell what way they should go. I had to take a marker and make my own lines on them to help out the kids I was working with.
-some of the letters aren't very clear, I had to modify the lower case Q and L to make it slightly easier.
-I also wish the tiles were slightly bigger, but thats just me. The size overall is okay.
Modifications I made:
-I added magnet strips to the back of the letters to help with spelling and to keep the tiles in one spot. For some of my kids who are sensitive to sounds, the sound of these tiles was very bothersome, so putting a magnet on the back and on a magnetic board keeps them from making the higher pitched "clink" sound.
I bought them to go with "The MEGA-BOOK of Instant Word-Building Mats Book" The tiles & the book compliment each other.
I was thinking about getting the "Number Tiles" also but not sure now
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.
I liked that these tiles have both upper and lower case letters. This is important for distinguishing names, titles, and beginning sentences. Most of the other sets I looked at only had lower or upper case, and they were much more expensive. All in all, I think these were a good buy.

I bought these for use in a reading intervention program. I thought there would be a reasonably equal number of each letter.Read more
