  • 13. Special Features of Siftables<br /><ul><li>The biggest part of this new invention is the learning aspect. They can be used by children for spelling, mathematics, language and colors. A cool piece of the learning side of Siftables is you can learn spelling. The Siftables will be scattered on a table and you have 30 seconds to make words out of the blocks. After 30 seconds a sound will chime and new letters will appear on your blocks.</li></ul>11/2/2009<br />5<br />Dana Coffield Siftables<br />
