Alphabeasts

ALPHABEASTS

I have three sons ranging in age from seven years to one year old.  Teaching them their abc's at times can be somewhat difficult,  as it takes alot to get them interested in learning about them.  I found a great product that encourages children to learn their abc's while having fun doing so!  Alphabeasts is a great site that sells Alphabeasts.  Wondering exactly what Alphabeasts are?  They are double sided plush creatures that feature a letter on each Alphabeast body. 

Alphabeasts are available in letters A through Z,  and come in an assortment of fun vibrant colors and styles.  Each Alphabeast is unique in it's own way and each Alphabeast features a different letter. Alphabeasts let me select three Alphabeasts to review,  so I decided to choose them based upon the letters of my sons name.  I chose a "V" for my youngest son,  "Z" for my middle son,  and a "J" for my oldest son. 
"J" is for Juno - A bright green and yellow colored creature that is so strong he doesnt always realize his own strength.  He is friendly and always willing to lend a helping hand.
"V" is for Vin'Vin - A bright yellow and purple colored baby Alpahabeast.  She is still learning and hasnt yet discovered her true powers.
"Z" is for Sipperzoom - A bright colored purple and pink creature that moves by slipping and sliding around alphaland. 
As soon as the Alphbeasts arrived I surprised all three of my sons with them.  My one year olds face lit up with joy as soon as he layed eyes on it.  He ran across the room and gave it a huge hug!  My two year old grabbed it up and then went and hid it(I guess he didn't want his brothers to try and steal it).  My seven year old placed it on his bed.  I pointed out to them the letters on the Alphabeasts,  and what they stood for,  which especially interested my seven year old , as he understands the best.
On the front of each Alphabeasts body is an uppercase letter,  but once you flip it over you will find a total different color,  and a lowercase letter.  This is good because children will be able to recognize both uppercase and lower case letters.  Teaching your children the alphabet is very important because it lays the foundation for learning sucess.  It will help build strong speaking,  reading,  and writing skills for your childrens future.  The Alphabeast has been especially helpful for teaching my two year old the first letter of his name.  My one year old doesnt quite get it yet,  but give him a little time and he will!
 
 
You can purchase Alphabeasts on their website for $20 each.   As you click on each Alphabeast  you will be given a front and back view,  along with a cute little description.  Besides these fun lovable creatures,  they also offer a Baby Books Box Set that will be available beginning in August.  Your child can visit their site,  and learn the a-b-c's,  while playing a fun interactive game on the internet.  To learn more about them visit them on their website,  Blog,  and be sure to check them out on Facebook. 

*Disclaimer - Alphabeasts kindly provided me with three Alphabeasts to review($60 Value).  In no way did this alter my opinion of their products.  All of my opinions are one hundred percent honest and true.*
