Today was a great day for a toy review. My daughter’s been sick and I’m not sure I could have handled another line-up of princess movies no matter how much I love them myself. Lakeshore sent us their Alphabet Pegboards & Pegs to try.
I first heard about Lakeshore in our Early Childhood Education class. My daughter was playing with Magna-Tiles and several parents asked where they could purchase them (even the parents had fun with those). We also had a chance to check out a peg toy from the learning library and my daughter loved it. She was busy for days stacking and building with the foam circles and pegs. They were a giant version of the new toy we got to review today.
My daughter was entertained for a good hour putting them all together (and punching out the letters first was half the fun). She liked setting them up so they looked like little letter tables with the pegs on the floor. It provided great opportunity to go over our letter recognition which she loves doing again now that she’s writing her letters by herself.
This set comes with a foam board in the shape of every letter in the alphabet and enough pegs to fill all of them (I grabbed a plastic zipper bag immediately as I fear these pegs could be found in every nook and cranny of my house without some organization).
Lakeshore is known for innovation in education and the highest quality educational products for classrooms nationwide. We’re thrilled to have one of their toys and look forward to sharing the fun with friends in the future.
