This review is from: Playskool Alphie (Toy)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
When I was a kid something like this would be exotic and high tech. Today, this toy is a great first introduction to electronics for a sub 3 year old kid who will soon move onto tablet computers, kid laptops, and other high tech toys and tools with full touch screen support. I like the Alphie for the nostalgia value as well as for the drool, hard abuse, and torture proof design. This thing is built to take a small child using it as a hammer and as a drool pad, while offering limited educational enhancement. There is never going to be a replacement for mom and dad spending time with their child performing the duties of a parent, but this toy is a nice enhancement.

My Nephew is now 5 and is well beyond this toy. This toys value is really at the 2-3 year old range with the button presses, basic color/letters/numbers, etc., type teaching and anything beyond 4 years old will be quickly bored.

Still, this toy is exactly what is advertised for the age range and is a very cute and well designed device.

My son is 7 years old and Alphie is one of his #1 toys. He got this last Christmas from Santa, and you are simply reviewing the toy from your own perspective, but every child is different. While my son is autistic, I strongly believe that not all 5 year old kids are beyond this toy. This toy has more to it than education value, it is very entertaining. Maybe your nephew is just ready for something new, as he probably got tired of playing with it.
