    Hi Cherrie. I think your idea to change a Rubik's Cube, which is
    a toy into something more academic is quite a creative idea,
    and there's a high possibility that it might work out well.

    However, I have one suggestion for you. I used to be a nursery
    teacher, and now I teach at a primary school. I've dealt with a
    few dyslexic children before, and in my experience, young
    children are easily bored without visuals, especially those with
    dyslexia. Since you only mentioned letters when you explained
    your product, I'm assuming that you don't have visuals. What I
    want to say is that it'd probably help dyslexic children more if
    you could add in some visuals on your product instead of just
    having words.

    Good luck on your project and I hope that this is the feedback
    that you are looking for.
