Much to the delight of my 3 year old a package arrived for him, much to my delight it was a fun and educational friend for him, it was Alphie by Hasbro.
I couldn’t hold him off; I HAD to open it right away. Right after our new robot friend Alphie was out of the box and turned on his little cards were laid out on the floor and I had an entire hour of silence. Well not really silence it was more like… “Oh Alphie, that is cool.” And “Alphie lets play with the drums.” And last but not least “Alphie you are so cool.” Needless to say my son now had a new best friend.
Alphie has become a loved part of my son’s day and night…we always catch him playing with Alphie under his covers when he is supposed to be sleeping. The only downside of Alphie is that he needs his own carry case to keep his cards and cartridges together but other than that he is a perfect addition to the educational and FUN toys that I love my son to play with .
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!
