Unplugged learning fun at its best as designed by the smart folks at Reader's Digest! This is a fantastic set of vintage learning tools contained in one Playskills Kit from Reader’s Digest and their condensed 10 steps to learning with 66 fun-to-do games and activities. It is in very good vintage used condition with very little wear and is 99% complete (missing one vinyl playing sheet).

I love the durable clear plastic blocks which are packed with cleverly coordinating images, letters, numbers and progressions, such as depicting a Cow in a Field, then a Farmer Milking the Cow, then a Milk Truck making its way down the road and finally, a Glass of Milk on the Table. Each side of the blocks has a different set that coordinates with the rest. The graphics are colorful and fun throughout this set and everything is very well thought out! They're really cute too. :)

The carrying case measures 16 ¼ inches X 8 ½ inches X 3 ½ inches and with all of its contents weighs 4 lbs.

It's a wonderful collectible, but it's also great for teaching children to think, to have fun learning and enable you to play and discover together!
