OCT-Tiny / Seal


Learn from the movable-type printing technique in ancient China, we can arrange and combine the 26 English letters to produce different kinds of seals.
In the bottom of the seal, there is a piece of magnet. And the English letters are made of iron, so they can be attracted to the seal.
A box of English letters and inkpad are attached to the seal, therefore kids can arrange the letters to make up some different words themselves.
Seal, this ancient and special way, makes spelling word much more interesting. Thus, kids can learn spelling word just when they are playing the seals.
