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?

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

Katherine

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

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

Kara

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!

Kathleen

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

Sarah

Made in China.

Gail

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

Cindy

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.

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

Makes a good present for a child/grandchild

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

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

Carolyn

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.

Andra

Too cute!

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

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.

Looks like fun for the right age group

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.

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

Maureen

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

Wish I had this when my youngest was learning to write

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

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

made in china......

Margaret
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.

Pencil and paper teaches truer writing habits.

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?

*YAWN* TOO BORING.

Kris

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.

Katherine
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.

Kelly

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

Deborah

Price?

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

Katherine

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.
