My son is at that age where everything is "on the brink." It's exciting to watch your little one soak up life around him like a sponge. It's also eye opening. Every bit of media, every book, every conversation and even every toy is having a real impact on his little world. With this in mind, I was happy to come across a fun line of toys, Alphabeasts, designed to lay the foundation for learning while still encouraging creativity and fun.
Alphabeasts is a series of stuffed characters each given a unique persona. These two sided toys showcase one alphabet letter per character (capital letter on one side and lowercase on the other). Played with alone or in combination, these soft and hugable creatures provide a nice learning platform to share the alphabet with your child.
As soon as the Alphabeasts arrived at our house I started sharing their letters with my son. He now knows each one and has fun retrieving them when I yell out their letter. While flash cards might also work for teaching the alphabet, they don't cuddle as well as these stuffed creatures do.
I am happy we have added these new friends to the well-loved stuffed animals in our home, because I know these are the ones that will help my little guy learn skills that will last a lifetime.
