Playskool Alphie Robot Learning Toy

Updated on March 14, 2011

Alphie Learning Robot

Finding toys that younger children want to play with can be challenging, especially if you're looking for educational toys.

Most of the educational toys consist of video games, but you don't want your child sitting in front of the TV all day or holding a handheld device every time you turn around.

The Alphie robot isn't new to kids, as it was introduced in the 1980s. The robot had a pretty big hit then, and it's back for another try with a new generation of kids. And, from what I've seen the response has been pretty good.

The Alphie robot of the '80s ran on batteries and came with insert cards that helped kids learn math, spelling, and matching concepts.

The new Alphie Learning Robot that Playskool has re-released, has the same concept. The robot comes with 30 double-sided cards that insert into the front of the robot toy, and you can buy additional booster kits for numbers and letters to enhance the learning opportunities.

The robot lights up, sings, plays music, and entices preschoolers to play with him. This is a great tool for learning and it's a great way to keep your preschool aged child busy.

The Playskool Alphie Learning Robot is a great tool for classrooms, nurseries, and for at home use.

You will find that you child will learn so many things with Alphie robot to include letters, numbers, math skills, shapes, special reasoning, cause and effect, and so many other vital essentials.

The Playskool Alphie Robot is retail priced at $44.99, but you can buy the robot for your child on Amazon for just $39.96. Or, you can check out what eBay has to offer. You may be able to find a great deal, that you just can't turn down.

Your child's brain will stretch and grow with this great educational toy. You won't be disappointed.

What's great is that the cards slide right into Alphie's backpack for storage and on the go traveling.

If you don't think that the set of 30 cards that Alphie comes with is enough, you can purchase additional booster packs.

The most popular packs include 'Letters' and 'Numbers.'

The booster packs include 25 double sided cards that are either alphabet- or number- themed. They include over 300 questions and challenges that will help your child discover new information.

The 'Letters' pack will help your child with letter-sound practice, word recognition, rhyming, and more.

The 'Numbers' pack will help with number-object correspondence, amount comparisons, money fundamentals, and more.

This is a fun way to get your child excited and pumped about learning. The more fun your child has, the more apt that he, or she, will be at retaining the informaion and the more apt that he, or she, will be at wanting to know more.

Alphie the Learning Robot is great for preschool aged children from 2 to 5 years old.
