Fun Ways to Learn the Alphabet
There are many ways that parents can make alphabet learning entertaining for kids for better lesson retention.

The bright colours of these toys will keep your little one visually entertained while learning. Both parent and child can explore the world of letters together.

Alphabet are toys designed to make learning the alphabet fun and entertaining. Learning the alphabet is an important developmental milestone and should begin early in a child’s life. It is the first step towards literacy and reading. It is also crucial for children to know their alphabet because it allows them to read and write and communicate better through the use of words.
Children should be able to recognise and name the letters and the sounds associated with each letter before they start school. It is not recommended to wait for children to learn about the alphabet until they start school. Doing so puts your child at a disadvantage and she will have to catch up with her classmates. Child experts suggest to start introducing letters as early as age 3 and by preschool age, your child should be already familiar with the alphabet.
Importantce of Alphabet Play
Letter toys are meant for teaching the alphabet to little children. However, most of these toys can be played in other ways and using games to teach the alphabet is a great way for your little one to learn whilst having fun.. For instance, letters of the alphabet incorporated to building blocks can be used for both constructive play and learning the alphabet games. Your children can have fun building whatever structure they want and knocking them down while learning the alphabet. They can spend hours playing these alphabet building blocks which helps with their early development and it something the whole family, even a young baby can get involved with, all ages have fun doing block games!
There are also letter toys that come in the form of a puzzle. Introducing puzzles at an early age is really a good idea. Children might find it difficult to complete puzzles but eventually they will love playing them. When children play with alphabet puzzle toys, they improve their hand eye coordination and fine motor skills. These skills are important to develop at an early age because they allow children to perform certain actions like writing, buttoning their shirt or using a spoon to eat. Solving puzzles in general requires patience and setting up of goals so while your child is figuring out how to solve his alphabet puzzle, he develops his emotional skills. He can also learn how to deal with tough situations and strong emotions when puzzle pieces do not fit together.He will also gain a better understanding of the world around him because he can manipulate the pieces to fit together.
Some letter toys feature magnetic backs. Older kids are fascinated with magnets and playing with magnetic letter toys will encourage them to learn not only their alphabet but also about basic magnetism. Playing with learning toys can spark your child’s interest into the sciences because children are inherently curious and magnets are just amazing toys. There is a wide range of fun activities which you can create to make these fun. Most of our sets have the choice between lower case and upper case and we suggest starting with lower case letters.
You can also use your letter toys to teach other subjects like numeracy, colour and shape recognition. Most alphabet toys come in colourful pieces which are guaranteed to get your children’s attention and keep them entertained for hours. Learning how to count and recognise different colours and shapes is just as important as learning about alphabets. Remember, letters in the alphabet are made up of different shapes. Phonics are ideal to help school age children and there are lots of ideas to help your kid with these, even young toddlers can do a phonics challenge or a word and music game.
