Features and benefits for ELC Phonics Desk

  • 8 different games to play
  • Teaches sounds, spelling, counting and colours
  • Keys light up and flash
  • Fun sounds and melodies
  • Requires 3 x AA Batteries batteries (Not included)
Your child can choose between eight different activities on the Phonics Alphabet Desk – five that will quiz them on letters, sounds and words, one that teaches them to count, and another two that show them colours and tunes. The desk's 26 keys that light up and flash are an easy way for your child to learn as they play.

Great for your child's development:
The Phonics Alphabet Desk is a great educational toy for encouraging your child in their first steps towards learning to read. As they progress through each game your child can have fun with words and sounds – learning the letters of the alphabet, how sounds are used in words and how to spell, as well as counting and colours. The alphabet desk uses the same teaching method, called phonics, used in schools, making it just right to prepare your child for the future.

ELC star quality:
The Phonics Alphabet Desk's eight educational games will keep your child interested and let them learn at their own pace – but it's so fun they won't even know they're learning. Getting the answers right gives a wonderful sense of achievement and you can make up even more games using the brightly coloured alphabet keys.
