A Positive Write-Up

Every literary genius has to start somewhere, and your Pullitzer-Prize-winner-to-be will have endless fun learning to write lower case letters with this novel magnetic tablet. The surface has the twenty-four letters clearly printed, along with numbered arrows directing how to draw them. As you move the magnetic stylus along the letters, tiny metal beads pop to the surface to complete the lines. To "erase", simply press on them and they drop back down. The tablet slips easily into a bag to become a no-mess, learning activity on the go. Made in China.

Learning to print neatly takes practice and this uncommon design lets kids have fun while they learn to write the ABCs. Would you take this learning tool on the go with your little ones?

Vote: Thumbs down!

NO, NO, NO to anything made in China! A tablet and pencil would work just as well and is far cheaper.

Vote: Thumbs down!

Don't think kids would be writing their ABC'S. They would be trying to get the beads to pop up and down.

Vote: Thumbs down!

I might be open to the idea behind this item, but sincerely dislike the fact that it's made is China. No thanks!

Vote: Thumbs down!

Kids would rather play alphabet games on Mommy's iPad sad but true. Also, don't love that it's made in China; I love when you sell local goods!


If it breaks do little metal objects get everywhere? Won't stay fun for long, IMHO

Vote: Thumbs down!

Made in China.


kind of a good idea but agree that made in China hurts and kids may not get into the groove of learning

Vote: Thumbs down!

My kids loved this for a couple days and then lost interest. Then, we lost the magnetic pen and now the entire tablet is worthless.

Vote: Thumbs up!

Anything that helps children read and write can't be bad.

Makes a good present for a child/grandchild

Vote: Thumbs down!

The quality control on items from China for children worries me. Chewing on the pencil, beads getting loose and going in mouths, etc.

Vote: Thumbs down!

Tired of products being from China!

Vote: Thumbs down!

tiny metal beads and small kids? No way! Plus, it is made in China

Vote: Thumbs up!

good gift idea

Vote: Thumbs up!

I HAVE THIS ABC BOARD AND MY GRANDKIDS LOVE IT! It May be a little overpriced. I paid $24

Vote: Thumbs down!

So many reasons I wouldn't buy this. Number one is I try to buy US made products and definitely try to stay away from products made in China ESPECIALLY products for children.

Vote: Thumbs up!

Too cute!

Vote: Thumbs up!

If I had a kid, I would definitely buy this for them! Nicely priced!

Vote: Thumbs down!

I can appreciate trying to make writing fun - but it doesn't necessarily mean that they'll actually use the directional arrows and will instead just play a game with the beads. A pencil and the great elementary school lined paper would be great, too.

Vote: Thumbs up!

Looks like fun for the right age group

Vote: Thumbs down!

Kids learn better through their own experiences than these type of practice/memorization exercises. By the time they can really get the concept of this (following the arrows and the numbered steps), they've probably already started writing some letters on their own.

Vote: Thumbs down!

I like pen and paper

Vote: Thumbs up!

I would use this in my preschool class!

Vote: Thumbs up!

Great item for beginners!

Vote: Thumbs down!

Definitely no! 1) Made in China. 2) not visually attractive to a child learning to write. 3) 1-dimensional. Capital letters are equally as important

Vote: Thumbs down!

sells for less than $20 online- can imagine the mess if broken. I'd rather let Kiddos practice with colored pencils or crayons,

Vote: Thumbs up!

Wish I had this when my youngest was learning to write

Vote: Thumbs up!

This would be perfect for my "our Evie." as any grandparent could attest, This would be a great Learning and Fun toy.

Vote: Thumbs down!

Please - let's do less plastic from China.

Vote: Thumbs down!

1) made in China2) no young children

Vote: Thumbs down!

wrong age group for me

Vote: Thumbs down!


Vote: Thumbs down!

Made in China?!?!? No thank you!

Vote: Thumbs up!

whats wrong about it being made in china? everything is

Vote: Thumbs down!

A crayon and some paper works better and is like $3.

Vote: Thumbs up!

I like this a lot and have seen it elsewhere in therapy catalogs for a lot more $$$. Great buy!

Vote: Thumbs up!

Great idea, especially for tactile learners!!!

Vote: Thumbs down!

made in china......

Vote: Thumbs up!

I have seen this elsewhere. It is fun, but buyers should be aware that just running the magnet over the top of the item brings the magnets up, so a child doesn't actually have to "write" to do it.

Vote: Thumbs down!

Pencil and paper teaches truer writing habits.

Vote: Thumbs down!

I'm not going to buy "made in China" products

Vote: Thumbs up!

love this one..great for travel

Vote: Thumbs up!

Again with the anti-China. They're all pro other countries but not China. Do you really believe that all Chinese labor is the same? And do you truly believe that every other country that is not China is any better? I would hope that the UncommonGoods Buyers are researching where they are coming from. Also, how many of you truly avoid "made in china" do you even comprehend how many products you use are not made in the USA?

Vote: Thumbs down!


Vote: Thumbs up!

Great product at a doable price. I know people are griping about products made in China but I'd just LOVE to run through their homes and point out all the things they've bought from the Chinese. It's everywhere, get over it, not all of us can pay triple the price an American made product would cost.

Vote: Thumbs down!

I really do love the idea. I wish it were made in the USA. I hate to be a stickler on that point but now, more than ever, it's important to support our own local artists/businesses.

Vote: Thumbs down!

Seems like this toy has a limited scope, kids may get tired of only having the letters to trace.

Vote: Thumbs up!



Lets see some more childrens items made in USA!!!


it's a cute idea but, how safe would it be to have popup balls that could fall out? Kids put everything in their mouth.
