Our Holiday Gift Guide is under way!
There are some great toys I’ve been able to review for my children and tell you guys what I think of them.
First up is, ALPHIE from Playskool.
Any parent, new and old knows PLAYSKOOL is a name we can trust! They provide interactive toys for our children to not only play with, but learn from!
Who better to explore the world with than someone who’s new to it? This ALPHIE robot is on a “field trip” from his home planet and, with a kooky grin and funny faces, it’s his “mission” to explore the world! There’s practically nothing this little dynamo doesn’t want to “talk about” — from letter sounds and shape sorting to patterns, cause and effect, vocabulary development and much more, your ALPHIE robot is like a classroom in one little portable robot buddy. Educational fun on-the-go is as easy as can be, too, with this little guy’s handled noggin and storage spot for his cards in his backpack. There’s a whole lot to discover when you’re a preschooler and this ALPHIE figure shares one of the most important lessons, too: learning can be tons of fun!
Robot figure comes with 30 double-sided cards.
Includes 3 “AA” batteries.
Ages 3 and up.
Here’s a video of Alphie that I found on YouTube. This is from www.timetoplaymag.com.
Alphie is super cute and super fun. My 4 year old has had a blast playing with him. She can learn her numbers and shapes, plus more.
I do have to admit that my 6 year old loves to play with Alphie as well, but she knows all the answers! I think that’s why she loves playing with him so much
More lifelike than ever before, this learning pal boasts and LCD screen to depict facial expressions, a childlike friendly voice and a playful, inquisitive personality making the ALPHIE toy robot not just about learning, but a beloved companion. Along with an animated personality that children will adore, this modern ALPHIE pal from PLAYSKOOL features important educational activities that help develop early learning skills in preschoolers.
With their playful ALPHIE learning pal leading the way, preschoolers can learn about the alphabet, rhyming, counting, color and shape recognition, matching, animal names, instrument sounds and much more! The ALPHIE learning pal has a sleek new look and convenient carrying handle and comes with thirty double-sided cards containing over 350 fun questions and challenges. Required 3 “AA” batteries, which are included!
ALPHIE will run you $39.99, this is a really good price for such an awesome toy! My daughter has had hours of play but what’s more critical is she is learning the skills she needs for when she starts school.
Being able for your children to learn through an interactive toy is important to me. Not only does she have fun learning, but I have fun playing with her and watching her learn new and important things. She’s been doing great and I am extremely proud of her success in learning!
She loves ALPHIE and takes him everywhere with her! I can’t complain at all, and the best part is that ALPHIE doesn’t get annoying!! (It’s a momma’s thing!)
A perfect toy for your preschooler and very affordable! You can find ALPHIE at retail stores online, and near you!
