When your child is ready to begin associating words with illustrations, the My First Words Flash Cards from Mudpuppy are the perfect way to start the process. These well-constructed flash cards measure 5 by 2.75-inches, meaning they fit in the hand well. The cards are safe for young children who still like to chew objects, as they are phthalate free and are printed with nontoxic inks. The set ships with 26 two-sided flash cards featuring beautiful illustrations from Ivanke & Lola. The cards are aimed at children ages 3 to 5 and ship with a gift box.
