I saw this product via a friend's feed on Facebook and thought I'd give it a try. Boy am I glad I did! My kids are eating it up. My preschooler who was previously uninterested in learning her letters has latched onto this product in a big way. She loves the bright colorful letter pieces and really enjoys the creative REUSABLE worksheets. My kindergartener likes it too. She loves to come home and practice what she learned in school. She is even working ahead. I upgraded to the Deluxe Workbook so they practice their sounds in a buch of clever ways as well as work on guided handwriting worksheets. The work surface is the lid of the slide top box. It can sit up so it's like a laptop or lay flat. My kindergartener practices her letters in the flat postion and does the rest when the lid is upright. I love that my girls use their hands and can move around while they do it We have some electronic learning games but I think it's great that this product let's them feel what they are doing. There are a ton of workbooks that go with the box and it does math too. I think I am going to buy the math add-on so they can work on their math skills. For safety purposes the pieces are metal and the work surface is magnetic.
