Review of Alphie by Playskool10:04 PM
Do you remember the Playskool Alphie robot from when you were a kid? They've recently given him a face lift for a new generation, and my kids have had a blast playing with him. In addition to offering children a cute and interactive way to learn basic preschool skills (alphabet, numbers, animal sounds, etc.), he also sings and entertains.
Alphie is a nice size, so he fits on my son's shelf. The cards store neatly in the back, and because they are so easy to put away, my son actually picks them up by himself. Alphie isn't too loud, so kids can play without annoying adults. (This toy has thought of everything: he comes fully loaded with batteries, and has a handy carrying "handle" in his head!)
You can learn more about this toy at the Playskool website, or purchase it at retailers like Amazon and Walmart -- they even sell add-on packs with new cards!
