Bought these for my little boy who is 5 and we absolutely love them! The quality of the cards is fantastic and I was so impressed with the presentation when they arrived. Each card is thoroughly thought out and provides lots of information. I find these cards to be very unique as I have struggled to find play activities for older children, but these are perfect!


I have just received the phase 5 pack of cards and plan to use these for intervention with my Year 2 children. The photographs are a wonderful invitation to play and help motivate little learners. I particularly love the 'go' and 'grow' options which help to offer just the right level of challenge. This is so important for building confidence, motivating children and supporting independence. It's also great that all the terminology is carefully explained. Parents needn't worry about confusing their child. Learning to read and spell requires so much repetition and repetition can be boring. These multi-sensory cards guarantee that learning is always active and fun! Congratulations Alice and Abbie - this unique product will have such a positive impact on so many children's attitudes to learning.
