As a new twist on classic alphabet toys, the 'Smart Letters' from Marbotic are designed to change the way children learn to read and write, combining the use of modern technology with traditional methods of interaction and play.
The 26 wooden letters are available in five languages and connect with any of the three apps designed for Smart Letters -- Alphamonster, Bla Bla Box, Vocabubble -- via a tablet like the iPad, and assist in the development of reading and writing skills. Created for children three to eight years of age, Smart Letters help to draw a connection between the shapes and sounds of letters, helping with the early formation of words, while combining physical and digital aspects of learning.
Use is simple; children place the wooden Smart Letters on an iPad, which then receives the character like a sheet of paper. Kids then use the letters to play a range of games, form words on their own and complete word puzzles.
From the classroom to an afternoon playing at home, the Marbotic Smart Letters will assist in developing crucial reading and writing skills for young children, bridging the gap between education and fun.
