I made an adorable sign for my daughter first day back to school with this felt board and she loved it.
I like the game that comes with it and my daughter and I played it for a good 40 minutes when we first got it and a few times since.
There are a few marks on the wooden frame that aren't attractive to me. Probably just from whatever is used to put the material all together during manufacturing the board. It wasn't a deal-breaker but it is why I dropped a star. That and two of my silver letters ripped a little where the colored side is. Still not a deal-breaker though because overall the letters were really nice and to be honest it could have been my fault in how I was pressing out the letters. They include a stick to help in poking the letter cutout from the sheet though and I found that handy.
For the most part I really love this board. The letters stay attached very well and do not fall off and they are really pretty to look at. I do hope to get more colors and possibly fonts in the future as well as picture icons. I want to do some of the included ideas and want to expand on the accesories in order to be able to spell more words and play more of the game ideas with my family. (The included paper with ideas for use was one of my top favorite things about this item!)
I say go for it if you are on the fence. It makes a great gift and an adorable and fun message board in family homes! Or it could even be used between roomates!
