5.0 out of 5 stars ALPHIE!!!!!!!!!!!!! (29.99 at toysrus), July 9, 2010
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Playskool Alphie (Toy)
If you grew up in the 1980's you probably remember Alphie - that fun loving robot that taught you all about colors, letters, numbers, math, and more. He is back - and better than ever with a new upgrade, this time sporting a much better animated face instead of the plastic face we all remember. My three year old son has been playing with Alphie for the last week and he loves him. He has an electronic voice that is a lot of fun and not at all as annoying as I imagined it might be. My son got mad at me a few times for "taking over".

He seems well built and sturdy, but I will update my review if that changes.

[...]

Some of the cards in the starter pack include:

-- Quick Start Guide
-- Matching
-- ABC Song
-- Music Composition (neat card! Keep adding instruments for new sound combinations!)
-- Counting Song
-- Color Exploration
-- Letters
-- Numbers
-- Shapes

There is also a "Hide and Seek" mode. Just push the button on top of Alphie's head and he asks you to find a card with a description. For instance, find a card that has pink on it.

New booster packs are available on amazon with at least 2 more slatted for release according to in the information in the box.

The cards are stored on his back when not in use. My only complaint and recommendation is for some type of clear plastic that the card could slide into on the front instead of just sitting loose in the small slot on the bottom. The plastic card tends to 'lean forward' and I am afraid could become badly damaged with regular use by small children.

Highly recommended!!!
