Alphabet Building Kit

A super simple and quick one. My son is learning his ABC’s, and my wife saw a plastic version of this where the child assembles the letter-shapes. So I figured out the minimum number of sticks necessary to build the entire alphabet, uppercase and lowercase, and cranked this out in 20 minutes.

It fits in a ziplock bag so we can take it with us and get it out while waiting for food or whatever. I liked it so much I made another set for my niece.

Some very educational ‘toy’ for your kid. Sure better than the plastic.

Thanks majuvla :) The less plastic in my house, the better I feel.

care to share dimensions and parts list? In other words, what are the number pieces and what shapes? I would be interested to move these into CAD to cut on a CNC :)
