by AmayasGrandma Excellent teaching aid.
I Bought these for teaching my grandaughter. The pieces are well made, with two magnets at the back. They are a good size which a 2 yo can handle easily. A lot of other sets are sold with only one piece of each number (or letter) which limits what you can do with them. This set provides several duplicate numbers, making it very versatile.
I have made worksheets with pictures and names of her favorite TV characters. I present these to Maya on a small cookie sheet, along with the required Letters. Mayas job is to place the magnetic letters on top of the printed words while I dicuss the phonics and we talk generally about the characters. Maya is very engaged with this activity and promptly sits at her table when I bring out her cookie sheet. (That alone is a small miracle.) I look forward to progressing to more involved activites , and a larger cookie sheet as her abilities grow.

by 2boymomND Very disappointed with switch
I originally purchased these letters in July 2015. I was absolutely thrilled with the quality. They were thick, a little larger than most I have seen, had more than 1 small magnet so they stick nicely. My 3 year old son loves these and hauls them all over the house and spells words. There were multiples of letters so that was nice for spelling words. He used them so much we decided to order another set. So we purchased them in March 2016. We were so disappointed when they arrived. They look like ones I have purchased from the dollar store. Cheap, thin and small. I checked back to my previous order to see if I missed something. The number was still the same for two totally different products. Our original ones were defiantly worth the price. The new ones are not. Very disappointed with the bait switch. I attached photos of the original vs the new. Purple was purchased July 2015 and red was March 2016

Not all letters represented. Even though I bought 2 sets, there were no "T's" at all.

I recently purchased these alphabet magnets for my classroom and they have been a great resource. The letters are big and durable-easy to handle for my students with fine motor skill issues. The magnets are strong and glued on well to the letters. I like the bright colors and style of the letters for spelling and creating words.

I bought this to replace those cheap, tiny letters that came with my 4 year old's easel. These are larger, better quality plastic, sturdier, easier for her to hold and at a great price. Definitely recommend them.

I bouhgt these to use in my classroom to write out each week's Bible verse. I use them on a wall painted with magnetic paint Most of them stick to the wall, but some just won't stay put. I have ordered several sets so I am able to swap out letters that do not stick well. They are a great size. The kids are able to read them from across the room.
