  • All I could find from reputable sources was the same price you found. Well, Sears has it for $78 and change. lol The few that I found (way low in the search results) are from sites I've never heard of and wouldn't be willing to give my debit card info to, so I'm not going to recommend any of them.

  • It's super heavy duty and well-made. Probably worth the price, just don't have the price. lol

  • Do you like this one. It's wood too but not magnetic. The letters just fit in.

    or this?

  • Is there something this does other than you match the letters?

    if not- why not go with just a wooden one? WAY cheaper!

  • I got some really nice Melissaand Doug wooden puzzles of the alphabet and numbers from Amazon, and they didn't cost that much.

  • It is encased in plastic and you use the magnetic wand to move the letters to their place. No pieces can be lost and it's good hand eye coordination

  • You can make something that has the same concept for under $10. You would need a cookie sheet ($4), magnetic letters ($1), and a laminated sheet with the alphabet in colorful letters (free- $4 depending on what you already have). Cut out the letters and glue to the cookie sheet. Your child can then match me the letters. If you want the wand, many school stores (The School Box for example) sell a magnetic wand for about $2-$3. Viola!
