It is also a meticulously hand-crafted reproduction of the original game by Steven Hurd. This game was awarded a Purchase Award in the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts (formerly known as the Arkansas Arts Center) Decorative Arts Museum's 18th Annual Toys By Artists Show. It is in the Museum's permanent collection . 1.5 inch solid maple cubes come in a handcrafted box made from premium cherry. Letters are hand-stamped with quality printer's ink and finished with hand-rubbed protectant. Each set comes with six (6) double-sided cards with a selection of three letter words taken from a typical Kindergarten spelling list. The puzzle can be used to teach children to spell, incorporating visual and tactile experiences.
