This interactive educational toy is a fabulously fun way for children to learn letters and their associated sounds, build vocabulary, and develop fine motor skills. The 26 magnetic tiles that come with the set can be used for refrigerator word play or can be inserted one at a time into the letter slot on the Tad's Fridge Phonics device (included) to produce a variety of entertaining and enlightening interactions. Three levels of play (1. hear letter name, 2. hear letter name + word beginning with that letter + fun phrase, or 3. hear phonics song featuring letter name and sound) build and reinforce a variety of skills. Pressing a light-up music button on the device alternates between two sing-a-long letter songs. Also included are 3 magnetic photo frame tiles (Best Mom, Best Dad, and Me) into which youngsters can insert their own images and/or place each frame into the letter slot to hear a variety of fun phrases. With so many engaging ways to play, Tad's Fridge Phonics keeps kids coming back, again and again, for more fun and learning!
