ALPHABET will also include a special opportunity to introduce young people

the 26 pieces will be reproduced in the form of a boxed, 
limited edition deck of 52 memory cards that can also function as a “snap” or “go fish” deck. 
You can own the original A, B, C and for only $80, take home the entire alphabet deck.

Cool idea!
