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.
In addition, they have rough edges where they have been cut/punched out. The label says that they have a "ridged edge for easy stacking" - but the inconsistent edges actually make them quite hard to stack.
My third and greatest complaint is that every, single orange token has a sizeable, distracting sticker on one side. They're hard to peel off and leave sticky gunk behind!
These could have many uses in the classroom - pawns for class sets of homemade board games, or tokens for an oversized game of BINGO for small groups, for example - but they aren't especially appealing. I ended up finding a 6 color set of plain (unmarked) poker chips from a different retailer and I like them much, much better.
1. Numbers are blue, indicating they are nouns. While this can be semantically true, it is only true in sentences relative to previous sentences. "There were many attendees. Six were male. Four were female." But in our vernacular, and certainly when teaching children to build sentences, numbers should be presented as adjectives. ("There were six monkeys."). That is how numbers are typically used as parts of speech in common use. This oversight reflects sloppiness in the pedagogical design of this set.
2. "Very" is green, suggesting it is an adjective. It's not. It's an adverb. It's just annoying for a company offering educational tools making such a simple, fundamental mistake. Quality control is obviously not a high priority for them. (Though it was nice to have one adverb; the set doesn't have any otherwise).
3. The yellow, for miscellaneous parts of speech (including conjunctions, punctuational, prepositions, and articles), does not contain words like "an" (so children have to use the wrong form of the indefinite article for any word with a vowel phonetic at the beginning (e.g. "A airplane flies over the tree." instead of "An airplane..."). Feels like gravel in the mouth. They also leave out important words like "with", while including less common ones like "up", though this is a trivial matter compared to the more glaring issues.
4. The verbs do not include all or even most tenses, making it impossible to teach proper tense matching between the subject and the verb, not to mention more advanced tense structures (progressive, etc). I would have much preferred fewer verb options with greater coverage of tenses, as that is one of the most challenging components of learning sentence building.
Now I have to decide whether to throw it away or return it. I don't like either option.
