The Little Tikes Bath Time Foam Letters and Numbers was a great educational toy! I was looking for something that would help my kids learn while they had fun. I had one learning numbers and letters and another learning easy words. It worked for both. These are hard yet squishy foam. They are pretty sturdy, strong and last awhile. I kept these in a little basket under the sink that had holes in it so they could air out properly. You wouldn't want to store these wet. These letters and numbers have bright vibrant colors and they are a good size. I also liked the price of them. It's a pretty good deal, especially when you can combine something educational with something fun and turn it into a game. I will say that if your kid puts these in their mouth and bites down that it will leave marks on the foam, but other than that they were great! I would recommend using them! They came in handy and my kids loved them!
