Holiday Gift Guide Day 2: Learning Fun With Alphie Review and Giveaway!

With Christmas right around the corner, many of you will be looking for fantastic ideas for educational toys for your favorite little person in your life. Well, I have been extremely blessed over the last year to partner with Hasbro Canada and let you know about great educational and fun toys and games. Today I get you share with you about one of my children's favorite toys: Alphie!






About Hasbro:


Hasbro first started in 1923. Hasbro, Inc. is a worldwide leader in children's and family leisure time products and services with a rich portfolio of brands and entertainment properties that provides some of the highest quality and most recognizable play and recreational experiences in the world. Hasbro is a brand-driven, consumer-focused global company, Hasbro brings to market a range of toys, games and licensed products, from traditional to high-tech and digital, under such powerful brand names such as GI Joe, Transformers, Playskool, Nerf, Star Wars, Clone Wars, X Men, Playdoh, Mr Potato head Lite Brite and SpongeBob. 




About Alphie:


Now more lifelike than ever before, this learning buddy boasts an LCD screen to depict facial expressions, a childlike friendly voice and a playful, inquisitive personality making ALPHIE robot not just a learning toy, but a beloved companion. Along with an animated personality that children will adore, this modern ALPHIE friend from PLAYSKOOL features important educational activities that help develop early learning skills in toddlers. With their playful ALPHIE pal leading the way, preschoolers can learn the alphabet, rhyming, counting, colour and shape recognition, matching, animal names, instrument sounds and much more! The new and improved ALPHIE learning companion has a sleek new look and convenient carrying handle and comes with thirty double-sided cards containing over 350 fun questions and challenges. Alphie language will have the Canadian Pronunciation of the letter "Z" as well as Canadian spelling of the word "colour" Requires three "AA" batteries, included.






My Review:


Alphie has been an awesome addition to our electronic learning fun with my two children (ages 5 and 3 years). With over 300 learning questions, Alphie kept both my children occupied for hours, and continue to do so. The questions are all very age and developmentally appropriate for preschoolers, and I love that Alphie covers so many subject/concept areas. Also, I love that Alphie is so easy to use. I only had to show the girls once how to use Alphie and then off they went. We also had the opportunity to review the Alphie Booster Pack "Letters" which is sold separately and includes an additional 300 questions for your child to learn about the letters of the alphabet! This is a toy that will be used for many years to come even after my children outgrow it, as I run a home daycare program. 


If you are looking for a great, affordable (Alphie retails for $39.99, Booster Packs retail for $14.99) Christmas gift for the preschooler (suggested age is 3+) I highly recommend Alphie and the Letters Booster Pack!


I give this product a HUGE thumbs up!


BUY IT: You can buy both Alphie and the Booster Packs (either Letters or Numbers) at your favorite toy retailer
