This desk set features a bright case (with Elmo and Cookie Monster on the cover) which contains 26 double-sided tiles, with numbers on their backs and all the letters of the alphabet on their fronts. Each letter features a familiar Sesame Street character holding an object that begins with the same letter. This allows children to become familiar with the shapes of different letters, and as they become comfortable with this the set helps to show how letters form complete words. This set does a good job of reinforcing recognition, and is an excellent learning tool for children up to about 3 years; beyond this age most children will become disenchanted with the desk. The case itself is difficult to close with the tiles inside, and the many 1.5-inch square tiles can quickly get underfoot.
Testimoni and Review
i bought this toy for my daughter when she was 17 months old. It is a very cute toy. The illustrations are nice, and the case is very appealing, with its smiling Elmo and Cookie Monster. My daughter is now 2, and she knows almost all of her alphabet - no thanks to this ABC desk. She has probably played with it 4 times in the last 8 months, it's just not a fun toy. The tiles are cute, she likes looking at them - the pictures on them are very engaging. The case, however, is a pain... It doesn't stay closed very well, so when she walks around with it, it opens and all the tiles fall out. Unless you have the tiles perfectly distributed the case will not close. The cards with 3-letter words are attractive, but they are made with thin cardboard and easily bend and tear. I am sure that some children will love this toy and spend hours playing with it, but it seems to me that there are better, more durable alphabet desks out there-carrie sika
My 22 month old daughter enjoys playing with the letters but gets very frustrated when it's time to put them away. The case will only close if you have the tiles in "just right" and it pops open easily, spilling the tiles. Also, the entire alphabet is not represented and the number sides are not in color. This could have been an excellent toy but it falls short in my opinion. The only reason my daughter plays with it at all is because she is fascinated with letters. As soon as I purchase letter shaped fridge magnets, I'm sure she won't even look at this toy
