We've had these a while now and the kids are always getting them out. The cards are sturdy and hard to bend/eat/soak with water and chew etc. So far they have all survived and the drawings of the animals are as usual beautiful.

More flashcards, please Jan. 28 2007
By K. Davenport - Published on
Format: Cards
Our 16-month old received these cards as a gift, and we LOVE them. If you are an Eric Carle fan, these are especially wonderful. They reinforce "The Very Hungry Caterpillar," "Brown Bear, Brown Bear," "Panda Bear, Panda Bear," etc. She truly has a grasp of A, B, Cs and is on the way to developing color skills. She has memorized many of the cards, like Giraffe, Narwhal and Peacock, and stardards like Duck, Hippo and Monkey. Only downside is that she asks for them constantly, when she wakes up in the morning "flash cards" is the first thing out of her mouth.

Sturdy and smart! Dec 19 2007
By Janice K. Wood - Published on
Format: Cards
I never review products, but I had to make a special case for this one. These ABC flash cards are thicker than the pages on a board book, so my one-year-old can't be rough enough with them. With a letter on one side and pictures on the other (and a very sturdy box to hold them all), these cards have been her favorite learning tool. Better than any book, because she enjoyed taking them out of the box and trying to put them back in. And she tries to stack them like Mommy! She can tell me what a monkey says, show me the horns on a buffalo, and the tusks on a walrus. These are great ... you can't go wrong.

Love Them! Oct. 1 2007
By J. Ferguson - Published on
Format: Cards
My 2 year old loved these SO much, he had them memorized after the 5th time I pulled them out! Best of all, he now points out (correctly) the letters he sees all around him everyday (so, great translation from the cute and colorful cards - I had worried about whether he would correctly associate the 'colorful' letters to the 'plain' letters, in a book) -- Boy, that was painless!!! Thank you Eric Carle ~ my son just got his reading foundation, and ENJOYED it too!

This is saying alot, for my whirlwind of a son ;-) -- for instance, his preference for reading books/looking at these cards, is that we are actively moving at the SAME time!!!-- we may be both standing on our heads -- or building Lego towers -- or throwing a ball -- Because of his learning style, I feel the added interest of the colors was a help in gaining/retaining his attention. He comments on the colors, and asks if the letters are 'swimming' (some of the watercolors have a lovely 'water/wave-like' appearance!). The colors also aided in providing initial distinction between similar-in-appearance letters (capital E and B, or, Q and O --for instance). With a couple times of practice, he was able to easily distinguish the differences (without the color aid), but this was a helpful 'beginning' boost for us.

My daughter also learned the alphabet with these cards, and still loves them, because of the beautifully portrayed animals! (She, thankfully, did not learn them standing on her head - bottom in mid-air -- she learned them cuddling in bed with mommy --gee, you have to love girls! ;-) -- but my son is the best weight-loss program EVER! ;-)

ps - PLEASE do not forget to enjoy the adorable (and sometimes, exotic) animals on the back! (I will never forget when my daughter told her Grandma about a 'Quetzel bird' -- and Grandma thought she was making it up! ;-) -- my one criticism of the animals is the 'Giraffe', I wish it had been 'Gorilla' perhaps, since I like to teach that 'G' sound first . . . but this is a pretty minor complaint -- and the Giraffe is too cute anyway!

Great set of flash cards Feb. 23 2012
By Karen C. Turner - Published on
Format: Cards Verified Purchase
This is a great flash card set. I use it while my daughter eats dinner, and every time we get near the high chair, she immediately points at the flash cards. I think it's nice that some of the animals aren't the 'typical' you'd think of for the letter (like, flamingo instead of frog). I've listed the cards below.

A: alligator; B: buffalo; C: caterpillar; D: duck; E: elephant; F: flamingo (even though there is a picture of a frog on the box); G: giraffe; H: hippo; I: iguana; J: jellyfish; K: kangaroo; L: lion; M: monkey; N: narwhal; O: octopus; P: peacock; Q: quetzal; R: rhinoceros; S: snake; T: turtle; U: urchins; V: vulture; W: walrus; X: xolo (xoloitzcuintli, Mexican hairless dog); Y: yak; Z: zebra.

The reasons I gave this a 4 star and not 5 star. First, X is for xolo, which I can't pronounce, and comes with an explanation. If an explanation is needed, I don't think it was a good choice. X-ray fish could have been used as an alternative. Second, the letters are in a sans serif font. So, the capital letter 'I' looks like a lower case 'L'. I think the font is fine generally, but they should have adjusted the 'I' specifically.

Those are minor complaints, overall I think this is a great set.

Beautiful and sturdy Sept. 8 2011
By Sarah - Published on
Format: Cards Verified Purchase
These cards come in a nice flip top box which is sturdy enough for toddler hands to open. It's a little difficult to get the cards out, though. You kind of have to dump them all out at once. The cards themselves are on really nice, heavy board with a matte finish. The colors are vibrant, and of course, the Eric Carle art is lovely. My infant likes to look at them while I flip through the cards and talk about the animals, and a visiting 1yr old enjoyed looking at them himself. He scattered them on the floor and we made a game of having him find the animal and bringing us the right card. Since he had to flip over any cards that were laying on the alphabet side, the game took a while, but he never got tired of it. The cards withstood the throwing, dumping, grabbing and bending of the whole game and still look like new, so I think they will stand up to almost anything!

Overall, a beautiful and study product- this is a real deal for the price.
