Mega Bloks Build 'n' Learn ABC Spell includes thirty brightly-colored building blocks with over one hundred letter and beginning word stickers in a sturdy vinyl carrying case for travel and storage. The picture stickers, which are of beginning phonetic words such as dog and cat, are designed in such a way that the correct number of letter blocks fit above or below them. For example, the block with a picture of a dog has three spaces so that a child (or parent) can place the corresponding letters above or below the picture. The set, which can be used alone or in conjunction with other Mega Bloks sets, helps children with letter recognition and early vocabulary development as well as fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, creativity and imaginative play.
