How to get it

These cards make it playfully easy for younger children to learn both letters and numbers – and for the slightly older ones, to learn to count and build words or short sentences.

Product details

This set contains 64 cards with numbers, symbols and lower- and upper-case letters. Some of the most common letters are found twice so that little ones can build different words or short sentences.

Since the alphabets of many languages have special letters (such as å, ä and ö in Swedish), there are also blank cards with a pen symbol where you and your child can write your own letters.

You can use the cards to play different games like a treasure hunt or a letters and numbers race.

Easy to interact with or give feedback to smaller children through colourful symbols.

Helps develop memory through recognition, association, and repetition.

Laying out, stacking and pulling cards from the deck improves the child's motor skills.

Perfect for children of preschool age and in the first years of school.

Part of the UNDERHÅLLA series – educational and classic toys that help children learn the alphabet, the clock, counting and the connection between shapes and balance.

UNDERHÅLLA Cards w letters, numbers, signs

Playful learning

Playing is above all, fun, but the clever thing is that it is also an essential part of the child’s development. We created UNDERHÅLLA to stimulate playing and learning in a fun and inspiring way. The series has pedagogical wooden toys, cards with letters and numbers – things that can play an important part in a more and more digital world.

“Yes, it’s important that children have opportunities to play and learn with different toys and games, both traditional and digital ones. It means diversity and freedom for children,” Kristiina Kumpulainen explains. She is a Professor of Education and Scientific Director of the Playful Learning Center at the University of Helsinki. Her research focuses on children’s learning and how design affects their learning ability.

Cards for all ages

When we designed the cards in the UNDERHÅLLA series, we had to find the exact right size and style of the letters and numbers, so they are easy to understand and recognize, no matter age or where you live. When we asked Kristiina Kumpulainen for advice, she suggested adding cards with familiar symbols like houses and hearts. “That way, the cards also have a meaning for smaller children who don’t know the letters yet. Children are inventive, and it is good if things they play with are not too limited but can be used in different ways.”

Play gives skills

Cards, abacus, clock and building blocks – all parts of the UNDERHÅLLA series are made to attract to play. ”We know from research that children play for the sake of it, but while playing, they practice social, emotional, and cognitive skills and regulate emotions. Voluntary play is a healthy and rich way for learning and well-being”, Kristiina says. And there is a special freedom with analogue games and toys. Children can play with them anywhere and anytime since no electricity or internet is needed. That’s pretty handy, isn’t it?

Functional solution

How to play with UNDERHÅLLA cards with letters, numbers and symbols

Treasure hunt - Lay the cards on the floor and ask your child to look for things in the house that start with each letter. Letter and number race - Lay the cards out as a racetrack on the floor – in alphabetical order or randomly. Say a letter or number and then ask your child to drive the car there. Alphabet soup - Mix up the cards in a shallow bowl so that they are visible. Say a letter or number and ask your child to find it in the bowl. Older children can be challenged with words that they have to find the letters for and then lay them out in the correct order. Feel free to make up your own games – the possibilities are endless!
