Loves to stamp it out!
I just love these stampers! I've used them in my classroom before and I bought another set for my 2 year old daughter to work on learning her letters. She loves to find the right letters and then use them to stamp all over a piece of paper. These stamps are brightly colored and easy for her to use. The letters are easy to read and are about nickel sized.

This set is exactly what I was looking for. The letters are a good size and the stamps are easy for little ones to use.

Fun way for kids to learn their alphabet.

they were ok...
I bought these for mt prek/kinder class. Like with some of the other comments, a few of my stamps were pretty dried out when they arrived. The still kids like them, though. My school had bottles of non-diluted watercolors and I soaked some of the worse off stamps in that. It seemed to help.

Letters Don't Stamp
I bought this as a fun activity to go along with teaching my preschooler his letters. Since the previous reviews were mixed I checked them all out before showing them to him and I'm definitely glad I did. About 5 of the stamps did not show up at all when stamped. And several of the others were barely satisfactory. I contacted OTrading and they offered to send another set. I agreed and in the next set it was even worse, but between both sets I do have a complete alphabet that works now. Even at that though, they are not really defined. For the price though it's ok. He loves them though so if you're willing to deal with the problems up front to get a complete set your child will probably find them helpful.

Hard to use
My first graders love these, but when they stamp a message the letters are turned every which way. These do not help the visual recognition of sight words as I had hoped.

Several letters in my set were defective
The set looks cute, but my letters were mainly pink and red, so there wasn't much variety. Also, several of my letters were defective, about 5 of the 26, to the point that I do not have the letter M in my set -- they sent two Ws!

Good price, poor quality
I purchased these to use with a small group of children. On the first use, several of the stamps seemed almost dried out, even when pushing very hard. Kind of disappointing.

Light colors are weak, but stampers are nice
I"m into alphabets and stamps and this looked cool. I was disappointed that there's nothing on top to orient the direction of the letter, you have to eyeball that and hope it's at least not upside down. The light colors (yellow, orange) were so light they are hard to even read. I don't think these would be very easy for a young child learning the alphabet to use.
