'(…)The use of convex letters on the tiles is a positive aspect of the game. Similar to Maria Montessori’s sand paper letter boards, shape4mind tiles give your child a chance to learn the letters with the use of touch. Marking each tile with a convex dot for position reference enhances your child’s ability to correctly place the letter in the space. By physically handling the letters, your child pays greater attention to similarities and differences between them.
The size of the tiles is optimal, which makes them easy to manipulate for little hands. The colours are warm and child friendly.
It is important to emphasise that games you can play with shape4mind tiles focus not only on language. They are also great for shaping emotional and social maturity in children, who learn to follow a set of rules, to wait for their turn or to cope with defeat. Playing with shape4mind tiles motivates children to learn in a positive way. Your child will accept new challenges and perfect their skills confidently. Everything happens in a relaxed setting , enabling learning through play. Thanks to this, children develop familiarity with the letters and become friends with them.
Playing with shape4mind tiles is a brilliant way of spending time at pre-school, school, or as a family!'
