I bought this and the board book as a Christmas gift for my grandson. It looked very cute when it arrived yesterday. However, upon further inspection, I noticed that the soft alphabet pieces had become stuck to the clear plastic bowl in several places. Also in some areas the paint came off of the pieces and was stuck on the plastic. Because my grandson is 16 months old and puts everything in his mouth, I didn't feel it would be safe for him to play with. I'm not sure if all of these toys have the same issue, but it is too close to Christmas to reorder. It is going back to the store this morning!Was this review helpful?

Fun Learning Toy
My son and I really enjoy playing with this as we read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. It added a kinesthetic element to our nightly read-aloud. He has enhanced his letter awareness and I contribute some of that to the repetition of using this toy along with the book. Since baby sister has come along, this has become a fun together activity each night and the plush pieces are safe and enjoyable for all. Now my little boy (4) tried to teach his little sister the letters using these pieces and occasionally the little tree becomes a basketball hoop. (It is durable!)Was this review helpful?

This would make a great gift for an early/beginning reader or even as a baby gift. Again, I would add a copy of the book with it! I highly recommend this combo! Happy playing and reading!!!
