A wonderfully rustic vintage Spelling & Counting Board. This red cardboard wheel has moveable wooden letters on one side, and numbers on the other that slide around to spell words or show arithmetic equations. Think of it as a very primitive iPad!

The board is decorated on both sides with sweet illustrations of children at work with their spelling board and at the blackboard. Along the edges are storybook scenes: a king, a windmill, the old woman who lived in a shoe, and others. The style of the the drawings would seem to date this educational toy to the 1920s or so.

The Spelling & Counting Board has a great aged look, with chippy edges, rusty bolts, and water spots. It is warped, but the letters and numbers still slide around so you can spell any message you want. Change it according to your mood or the season!

One wooden block has split and needs to be glued (see photo 4). I'll be happy to do this for you if you'd like--just let me know!

Lean this adorable spelling board on a bookshelf, hang it on a kid's room wall, or set it on the coffee table to play with!
