Product Description

Amazon.com

Here's a learning toy that offers kids a wonderful, interactive introduction to the world of letters, sounds, and colors. Alphabet Pal features several ways to play--pull the string and, antennae flashing, the jolly green caterpillar rolls happily along singing the alphabet song. When one of the caterpillar's 26 multicolored alphabet legs is pressed, kids hear the name of that color, letter, or letter sound depending on which mode they choose. Best of all, Alphabet Pal is a parent's friend, too--it's not too loud and turns off by itself when idle. It comes with three demonstration batteries, which should be replaced with regular AA batteries. Made of durable plastic, the toy is 7 by 11.5 inches long. --Marianne Painter

This is a very reasonable priced educational toy. My daughter adores this toy! She has mastered her alphabet and colors. We are now discovering visual letter understanding. HOWEVER dropping the toy just once causes the antenna to FALL OFF into small circular pieces and CAUSES A HAZARD!! After AlphaBug had broke one antenna I broke the other off JUST IN CASE.

MY SON RECEIVED THIS IS A GIFT WHEN HE WAS ONLY 12 MONTHS OLD AND LAUGHED WITH IT A LOT. HE IS NOW 2 AND SINGING HIS ABC'S ALONG WITH IT. THIS TOY HAS BEEN THROUGH THE TEST OF TIME AND HAS LASTED. HIS 1 YEAR OLD SISTER ENJOYS IT TOO. IN ADDITION TO SINGING ABC'S IT SAYS THE COLOR OF THE LEG TOUCHED TEACHING COLORS AND LETTER SOUNDS. ANOTHER GREAT FEATURE IS THAT IT COMES WITH IS VOLUME CONTROL AND HAS HIGH QUALITY SOUNDS. I HIGHLY RECOMMED THIS TOY. I'VE SEEN OTHER TOYS THAT COST TWICE AS MUCH THAT DO NOT THRILL A CHILD LIKE THIS ONE.

This is a wonderful toy as far as educational value is concerned. The buttons/legs teach colors, letters and letter sounds. And pulling the string causes the bug to sing the ABC's, which is very cute. But beware, it is *very* fragile. The leg buttons stopped working after 2 months and I called leap frog who promptly sent another which broke within 6 months. My daughter hasn't been rough with this toy, though it does spend time in the toybox. I sure wish it still worked, it was a lot of fun for her... but Leap Frog's warranty is only 90 days and I'm afraid to take a chance buying another. I hope you have more luck than we did.

This is one of our favorite toys! The Alphabet Pal introduces himself as "Alpha Bug" and plays the alphabet song when his sting is pulled. His feet are different colors, and each leg has a different letter on it. Depending on how you set the switch, when you push his legs he will either say the letter, say the letter's sound, or say the color. He has a funky, wobbley gait when he is being pulled, and his antennae light up.
My daughter received this for Christmas when she was 9 months old. In the beginning she enjoyed pressing the legs to get a response out of Alpha Bug. Eventually she learned to walk, and then Alpha Bug REALLY got the workout. We joke that Alpha Bug needs an odometer, because we're sure that ours has had many miles put on him! She loved to grab the string and just march around and around, around and around, singing the alphabet song with her friend. She also liked to pick him up and hug him, which I think is a little weird, because he has an oddly shaped, hard plastic body. I guess that's love for you! She's now 3 1/2, and Alpha Bug doesn't see too much action, but he still has a special place in her heart (as in, I better not throw him away!)
As a parent, the truth is that Alpha Bug can be annoying. He does have a switch that offers 2 volume choices, and "off" is an option on the switch with the leg choices (letters, sounds or colors), but when your child is pulling him along, he sings that alphabet song over and over and over.... At least the alphabet song is something you want your child to know!
When he has been left alone for a while, he will start up a "good-bye song" and turn off, which is good for batteries. We change the batteries rarely, and our bug has been used a lot!

Our son received this when he was about 14 months and enjoyed it from the beginning, so don't feel you need to wait for the "recommended" age. It isn't his favorite toy (trucks and trains win hands down, but that includes over food as well) but he plays with it regularly either on or off. It's proven to be pretty durable as he likes to drag it around on our hardwood floors and isn't always particularly cautious about avoiding table legs or corners. It continues to work perfectly and has nary a scratch on it. He enjoys the singing most of all but will also hit the single legs to hear the letters. One caveat is when is was younger he couldn't always hit just one leg--it certainly never seemed to bother him. Several nice small touches for parents--a working volume control where low actually means low and when it's been left on for a set period of time it will utter a short "bye" and turn itself off. We have yet to have to replace the batteries in the 11 months he's had it. Other highlights--the voice is distinct and clear, it doesn't do a lot of flashing and yelling, and it succeeds as a toy even if you never put the batteries in or turn it on.

This review is based on potential future use, not really for "now". I bought this for our 1yr old son because he LOVES music. It plays a ton of songs. It also helps babies learn how to pronounce their letters. But he's only 14mo old now... and is just starting to talk. He's not at all interested in anything but the songs. Each little foot on the toy will play a song...so, he doesn't really stay on one song for very long. It tends to drive us parents nuts.! But at least the songs are good, and sound good too.The toy does a lot of other cool and educational things as well. I really think that he will get a lot out of it when he's 2yrs old or older. So my advice is to wait until they are talking better and more interested in learning. But for the price, it's good for the 1yrs olds just to bang on to make sounds. Keeps his attention for a while, so I guess that's good.
