Stick to the ABCs

It’s a lo-fi kind of tablet. Snap open the top of this cleverly designed learning toy and just like that, there’s a tray filled with 48 colorful letter magnets and 10 magnetic object cards. Use the dry erase board for drawing pictures and practicing letter and number skills on a lap or tabletop; and when the kids are done, simply snap the cover back into place to neatly store everything away. Ages 4 and up.
