Service was great. I got my delivery within 3 days of ordering. Great quality and love the fact they have different ways to use the product. I did find the letters small but I knew this when I bought the product. Would have been nice if they could make bigger sizes. Overall a must buy for teachers and parents.

I really enjoy using this product with my students. The font is perfect for foundation phase and I love the bright colours. The sensory feel of the letters and numbers is an added bonus. I am also a sucker for anything magnetic because it makes the product more versatile to use. The on-line aspect is also very useful, especially for the non-English speaking learners. You will not be disappointed should you choose to purchase this product.

I absolutely am amazed by this product, I love that it is also magnetic and the kids can stick it on the fridge. My daughter has started building 3 letter words in one day of having this letter kit. Thank you for your wonderful bucket.

As a grade R teacher the lowercase alphabet is so useful. I use it weekly in my class to teach learners the sounds. The learners love the feel of them and love to use them to make up words and spell their names. These are the only letters I could find in the proper grade 1 font in the whole of South Africa. Every classroom should have these.
