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.

The letter coloring scheme is simply an alternation of red, yellow, blue, and green.
The numbers coloring scheme seems like green/yellow are odds & red/blue are evens:
0 = 2(red) 1(blue)
1 = 2(red) 3(blue) 3(green) 3(yellow)
2 = 2(red) 1(blue)
3 = 1(green) 1(yellow)
4 = 1(red) 1(blue)
5 = 1(green) 1(yellow)
6 = 1(red) 1(blue)
7 = 1(green) 1(yellow)
8 = 1(red) 1(blue)
9 = 1(green) 1(yellow)
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.
Healthytoys dot org lists lots of toys as both safe and unsafe, according to brand. It's good to be careful these days.
- 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.

We had high hopes for these, but two days in the magnet and the card board started to separate. These are cheaply made. We will probably not buy again.Published 18 days ago by nevs13
Perfect for what I wanted them for. No made for a child that chews on stuff though. They will peel away from the magnet If chewed on. I'd love some wooden ones just like these.Published 19 days ago by Katie
