Alphabet Flash Cards by Educational Toys Planet {Review}

Kindergarten is still a few years away, and I’m already feeling the pressures of getting my son reading before he goes.  You should understand that most of my friends are the wives of MIT students here in Boston, so education is a huge priority and starting them young on letters and sounds is a big push.  I’ve started to look around for some tools and guides to help teach “Rocket” some fundamentals and get him on a good track for learning.  I had the opportunity to review the Alphabet Flash Cards for 3+ Year Old Kids, made by Educational Toys Planet, and I think these are just what I was looking for!

I was first impressed with the number of cards in the box.  For $2.97, I was not expecting 56 cards on hardstock, with vibrant colors and such detailed pictures.  This consists of 26 uppercase cards, 26 lowercase cards, 3 index cards, and one parent card.

I think these are great for the budding alphabetist!  My son is 2 and 3/4, and considering that he is still on the tale end of the curve on language, I didn’t expect him to be busting out the letters when I showed him these pictures, but I was pleased with what he could do with these.  Right now, he is naming the object with pride when I show him the picture, and then I say the letter out loud and he will repeat it.  I am pleased with where we are at right now, and the great thing about these flashcards is that we can continue to use them as he starts to identify more letters.

I like that both an uppercase and lowercase card is included in this set, so that there are two cards for each letter.  The pictures aren’t confusing as to what object we are trying to label (ie there is rarely more than one object on the card), and the letters on the back are big and bold.

You could play so many games with these!  Besides going through them in traditional flash-card style, you could flip half of them over and try to match the pictures with their letter.  I can see these being a fun tool and game for children up through gradeschool.

The pictures are friendly, large, and colorful, and the 52 objects that have been chosen are fairly standard words that a 3-year old could learn.  Besides maybe “elf” and “fox”, which I don’t think I’ve taught my son yet, he could identify each picture with pride.
For $2.97, these are well worth the cost.  They make a fun educational tool, and I’m happy to have this available when we start to hit reading hard!  Educational Toys Planet carries a HUGE assortment of educational toys, specifically geared towards preschoolers.  Check out their “Learning the Alphabet” section and be sure to follow them through their social media sites below.
