OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Each side of the Ultimate Alphabet Activity Cube has something for babies to explore. Through the five sides of interactive play on this electronic activity cube, babies and toddlers will be exposed to more than 80 animations on an LED screen and more than 250 songs, melodies, sounds, and phrases all about letters, numbers, shapes, colors, and animals. There are even 13 double-sided letter blocks to help with fine motor skills through building play.

The main side of the cube has the LED screen. Turn on the toy by selecting either Learning Mode, where kids will learn about letters and hear fun sounds and tunes, and Explore Mode, where kids will learn more about letters and objects, answer simple questions, and hear fun sounds and tunes. In either mode, place one of the letter blocks into the letter recognition slot to activate the sounds, phrases, and music.

On this side, kids can also press the number/animal buttons to hear about numbers, shapes, colors, animals and their sounds, and music. Slide the bear to activate even more sounds and animations. There is also a rattling, rolling ball and a bead slider.

Another side of the cube has a block chute where kids can drop the letter blocks to hear the cube count them or play fun music and sounds. 

The back of the cube has a block sorter. Kids can drop the blocks through the slots and then take them out when they tumble to the bottom.

The fourth side of the cube has spinning gears, animal sliders, and flipping pages for small hands to explore and manipulate.

And the top of the cube has space for building and stacking with the letter blocks, plus two bead races.

Is It Fun?

This activity cube definitely lives up to its "ultimate" name with the plethora of activities on each side. There is a lot for babies and toddlers to explore, and they'll enjoy hearing and seeing what happens with each block dropped and each button pushed. All of the activities are great for strengthening fine motor skills, and through the play kids are also being introduced to early-learning concepts, such as letters, numbers, shapes, colors, and animals.

Who It’s For

The Ultimate Alphabet Activity Cube is for ages 9 months to 3 years. It has a lot of interaction to keep babies and toddlers engaged in the play, and it's a fun way to introduce them to letters, numbers, shapes, colors, and animals.

The activity cube comes with two AA batteries for the in-store try-me features, so we recommend replacing them before you play for best results.

Some assembly is required but is easy to do.

The toy has two levels of volume.

This toy is also available in a more neutral color palette, sold separately.
