More than 300 years ago, philosopher and educator, John Locke, suggested that by playing with alphabet dice, "Children may be cozen'd into a knowledge of letters... without perceiving it to be any thing but sport." The Spelling Game (ABC Dice) is based on a centuries-old tradition of educational toys. Also available Arithmetic Game (123 Dice). Recommended for children ages 4-8; not intended for children under 3.
