These are only just a FEW of the things that you can do with this versatile product. Not to mention that the quality is very good and will last you many years.
Try not to get marker or crayon marks on it, as I haven't figured out how to get them off.
You can use these over the years for all the activities I mentioned. We have been using them a lot so far for building and letter/ animal/ number recognition. In later years we will be able to do more.
I have two small gripes: 1- The numbers are in "Arabic numerals" as westerners use them, not in Arab numerals as Arabs usually use them. It's not a big deal, because the numbers we use are quite commonplace in the Middle East.
2- The mathematical symbols are great to have on the blocks, but they could be improved by including the Arabic name for the mathematical terms. It would stuff more learning value into them.
Overall, a good product that my son and I enjoy, with just a tiny bit of tweaking it could be a superior product.
What's great about these too is that I anticipate using these for years to come. My two year old has learned the Arabic alphabet but hasn't yet learned to read and write. These are helpful in that they show how every letter looks on its own, but also how it would look in the beginning, middle and end of a word.
