It is a box (size 21 x 27 x 31 cm) with a set of 32 cards with pictures of the letters of the Russian alphabet. Every picture contains an image of some object, animal or human, reminding the shape of the letter, and the name of this object in Russian starts with the same letter. The cards are printed on thick isolon, and the letters can be taken out from the pictures, so that you can use them to build words. There are lots of other words containing the same letter hidden in the picture. The project is of special interest to Russian speaking children or foreigners studying Russian.
