Any parent that struggles to educate a child while maintaining a clean home and the demands that family life often brings can appreciate the value of a high-quality educational toy. The Alphaberry by B. Toys is a great asset to teaching and reinforcing the alphabet. The buttons are sensitive enough for even the tiniest hands, and once pushed, a letter is displayed on the screen while being sounded out. The Alphaberry comes equipped with an auto-off function to save batteries, and volume-control (to save a parent's sanity, perhaps?)
The Alphaberry is appropriate for children aged 18 months to 5 years. My two-year-old loves to push the buttons and sing along with the four different musical renditions of the alphabet song. This toy is able to withstand the constant banging that my daughter delivers, while still providing a calming and educational platform to entertain her for minutes at a time.
I imagine this toy would be an excellent choice for younger children, as well. Baby is never too young to start learning, and the design of the Alphaberry makes it suitable to the young toddler's hands. If baby puts the Alphaberry in her mouth, there's no need to worry - this toy is both phthalate-free and BPA-free, and is a very durable and high-quality toy.
The Alphaberry would make an excellent present for any child. The packaging is reversible, so no additional wrapping or materials are needed, and the nice satiny ribbbon handle lends a polished touch to the design. The packaging eliminates waste in another way, as well - made from recycled paper with soy-based inks and water-based varnishes, the box is even 100 percent recyclable! How amazing is that?!!
As if being child-friendly and environmentally responsible weren't enough to satisfy consumers, you will be pleased to learn that 10 cents from every B. toys purchase is donated to Free The Children, an organization dedicated to empowering children to become agents of positive change in the world.
