Each piece shows an animal, person or item most children will recognise, and the simple layout makes it easier to associate the objects with their starting letter or word. Letters and words are in a style that children will recognise when they start nursery or school, and each object is phonetically correct, helping children to “hear” each individual starting letter/sound.
Puzzle can also be used as a simple “look and find” game. Comes with leaflet giving ideas for play. 30 piece puzzle crafted with premium quality and measure 36 x 26cm when complete.

What our experts think
My First ABC game provides little ones with lots of opportunities to improve their language skills through letter recognition, sorting and matching. The children enjoyed matching the pieces and being introduced to new letters. Beginning to relate letters to word sounds and the words themselves helps them with their phonic learning, an important part of language and speech.
Some children will need adult support to stay on task and enhance the learning opportunities – particularly little ones who are in the earlier stages of developing the concentration and attention required to stay focused independently.
