Our Little Bud Kids Spin-and-Read CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) word builder blocks are inspired by the Montessori educational philosophy that children learn best when given the opportunity for hands-on, multi-sensory self-directed exploration.
These rotating wooden phonetic blocks introduce the magic of letter blending and make learning to read, decode, and rhyme straight-forward and empowering. Each of the 5 wooden rods features one vowel and a set of consonants that rotate. Transform CAT 🡺 HAT and HAT 🡺 BAG.


  • TEACHES READING: Build simple 3-letter CVC words & explore how to spell, read, and rhyme with this tactile, movable CVC word builder. The set creates 62 real and common words plus much more for further decoding practice. 

  • SELF-DIRECTED & SELF-CORRECTIVE: Complete with a set of 30 game CVC flashcards that grow with the beginner reader. The flashcards are double-sided, boundable, multi-purpose, and heavy duty. They are designed to engage readers of all levels. One side of the flashcards features a picture with the corresponding word, while the other side features just a picture. This self-corrective feature allows children to learn independently.  

  • TRAVEL-FRIENDLY: Compact with bounded flashcards & a travel tote bag = the perfect on-the-go toddler toy for learning in the car, at the restaurant, and at the doctor's office!

  • ECO-FRIENDLY & DURABLE WOOD TOY:  Made with durable & sustainable solid German beech wood, a hardwood that will keep its shape and beauty for years.



  • Carefully selected letter combinations maximize the # of modern English CVC words. Our goal is to teach both common words + advanced vocabulary, while avoiding the # of obsolete words.
  • Traditional print allows the beginner reader to confidently build upon existing letter recognition.
  • Large & smooth beveled-edge blocks for ultimate comfort and safety. 
  • Real-life image flashcards & our animal alphabet card provide a real understanding of the world. These supplementary materials allow children to engage in self-correction from letter sounds to spelling.
  • Forget the plastic! Take care of the earth by choosing sustainably-harvested wooden toys that extend past the life of many plastic toys. We choose beech wood for its hardiness and beauty. 


  • 5 wooden phonetic reading block rods each with 1 featured vowel
  • 1 set of 30 double-sided flashcards bounded by a removable metal ring
  • 1 travel tote bag
