It’s now just 9 Weeks til Christmas, which means we are already on our fourth Toy of the Week! In the run-up to the Festive Season, Jaques will be announcing a Top Toy every week based on the best benefits for your little learners.

Listening learners

This week’s Toy of The Week for forming ‘Phonics’ is… our Let's Learn Spelling Game!

Learning the alphabet is one thing, but this toy has been crafted to build associations in the child’s mind for the sounds those letters make when made into words. It’s a really clever steppingstone towards children forming full sentences. This vibrant toy was designed by UK teachers and lovingly created in the UK with your little ones in mind.

Our spelling game makes a great gift for toddlers. It comes with wooden alphabet letters and a double-sided word cards which is an easy-clean material. The spelling activity cards are made up of 3 and 4 letter words. This toy comes in a fun and bright design, with depictions of the words, to keep learning fun and engaging.

Super spellers

The educational benefits of a toy like this are that it teaches children the alphabet and the sounds associated with those letters. It’s a great introduction to phonics (letters and sounds) and perfect to reinforce spelling skills as they learn. The easy CVC words have been chosen to support all ages and abilities. Another clever feature of this top toy is the bright colours for colour and letter association. An ideal learning resource to use over and over again!
