Toddler and Preschool Activity- Playing with Foam Blocks

We have also used these blocks as the oldest who is almost 4 is learning how to spell simple words like car, dad, mom, and his name. The colors and pictures are simple and great. So I found them to be a wonderful learning tool as well as fun toy. For only $10 what more could you ask for.
