A fun and multi-sensory way to introduce little ones to letters while working on motor skills and coordination. Kids are able to manipulate the letter tiles and connect them to the yellow school bus.

The music note plays one of 3 learning songs.
Depending on the magnetic strength of the surface you connect it to, the tile and bus may slide down.
