From the manufacturer
Everyone is 'attracted' to these beautifully crafted wooden letter magnets! The set includes 52 shaped letters-- 26 lowercase and 26 uppercase-- in red, blue, yellow, and green. They range in size from about 1.5 to 2 inches high (3.8 to 5 centimeters) making them easy for small hands to position and reposition. All store neatly in a two-compartment solid wood case with a see-through top that slides into place, so they are perfect for both home and travel.
Learning is fun
Start asking- "Can you spell?", “learning is fun?" These wooden magnets will help! Kids develop their fine motor skills as they stick the magnets to a metal surface such as the refrigerator, or play with them on a table or the floor for hours of creative playtime. Great for developing sorting and grouping skills and letter and color recognition, kids can also trace or make rubbings of the colorful magnets to make posters, cards, and to personalize artwork.

On top of that, this set has a lead warning on HealthyStuff.org. It contains medium levels of lead - much higher than what is safe or even acceptable for toys.
I used to really like Melissa and Doug toys when they were actually hand made in the USA. Now everything is made in China and apparently they are not keeping on top of their lead (and other toxins) levels in their toys. I won't be buying any more Melissa and Doug items.
I'll be tossing this. I don't even feel comfortable sending it to Goodwill.
Some unavoidable truths about these are that they are wood, with a thin magnet on the back, and the colorful letter part is glued on cardstock. Which is a bummer if your kiddo is a chewer. Really, you should never leave a child who chews alone with anything with a magnet on it, period. So while I would prefer it if these were plastic, every brand of plastic alphabet magnets I've seen has a small magnet in it...the kind that if it were chewed out, or if the glue should not work so well and it should fall out, can do a whole lot of damage to intestines. They'd need to eat more then one to do that, but trust me, those kinds of things happen, and more then one small magnet can punch holes in a child's intestines. These magnets, are less likely to be doing that because they are week, flat, thin, and cover the entire thing, making them harder to swallow. So, as the mother of a child who is a serious chewer even headed into his fifth birthday, I prefer these because they don't come with the same kinds of risks plastic letters with smaller, more powerful magnets have.
Having said all of that, it's been two and a half years, and the magnets still work. Now, these are items I do not leave on the fridge or alone with my son given he is a chewer, and in terms of their toys, they actually come with a case which has a side for the upper case letters, a side for the lower case letters, and a sliding plastic lid. At least, they did when I purchased that. HUGE fan of that. I am also a huge fan of the fact that they have lower case letters, because many systems do not, and yet, lower case letters are the ones most often used in writing and reading, therefore the most important when it comes to decoding.
I love that these are different colors, but not too many to be distracting. Today when I was doing therapy with my son, I started with matching letter cards, and then moved on to "give me the red 'a' " with these. Having colors is very helpful in using these to teach kiddos with special needs or intellectual disabilities, both of which apply to my little man. And because they are magnets, I can be the queen of the multi-task with them, because how that went down today is he would request to play tickles on his computer, I would chase him, tickle his ribs, then put the red 'a' and yellow 'n' on the metal gate at the top of the stairs and say "give me..." Yah, so for me, I love these and find them a very useful, multifunctional teaching tool. They are cool part of my plan for helping my little man learn how to read and I'm happy with them. But definitely not one you should leave alone with your kiddos where they can chew on them. And perhaps having them wash their hands afterwards wouldn't hurt either, given that older versions may have contained some lead. So do Christmas lights for that matter, and I imagine most parents don't think a thing about letting their kids near those. So my advice would be, watch your kiddos, don't let them chew on these, and wash their hands afterwards, and these are a great teaching resource.
- Letters are thinner.
- Cheaper laminates were used, or at least ones with larger air pockets when viewed from the side.
- Edges of many letters were damaged when press-cut out.
- Some letters look a bit funky because they changed the shape for cheaper manufacturing. (Ex. Larger internal curves.)
- Color shades are different.
Basically most letters are damaged on the edges and the ones that aren't still look cheap. Funny thing is that the numbers in the set I received are the same quality and color of the old letters that I have!
Sorry, at this time, Amazon does not allow me to add customer images to show the differences.
