I decided to buy the Melissa & Doug Magnetic Wooden Alphabet for Harmony so we could easily spell words. So far, we really like them.. although I think that my creative artist has enjoyed using them to create people, objects, and houses.
I have recently purchased other Melissa and Doug products, which I love beyond words! -I am not advertising here.. I am just a really satisfied customer! If you are unfamiliar with their learning toys, you must go take a looksy! :)
