EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

You won't bee-lieve how fun practicing letters, numbers, and shapes can be with the AlphaBee. Open up the bee-shaped carrying case to find 40 letter, number, and shape tiles. Little hands can remove the tiles to spell words or match the tiles to the activity cards and then snap the tiles back into the case when playtime is over.

The letter tiles are double-sided with an uppercase letter on one side and a lowercase letter on the other. The number tiles have a number on one side and a corresponding number of dots on the other. And the four shape tiles show a filled-in shape on one side with just an outline of that shape on the other.

There are three double-sided activity cards with the letters of the alphabet, pictures and words of things that start with those letters, numbers and pictures to count, and words that kids can practice spelling using the letter tiles. There is even space inside the AlphaBee for kids to place tiles and make three-letter words.

Is It Fun?

There aren't specific instructions for how to play with AlphaBee, which is nice because it provides a freeplay experience for kids and the opportunity for parents to come in and guide kids through more focused learning play. Along with the educational play, picking up the tiles is also great for fine motor skills. And the fact that everything fits neatly inside the case makes this a toy you can play with at home or on the go.

Who It’s For

AlphaBee is for ages 2 and up. It's a fun way to help toddlers and preschoolers practice letters, numbers, and shapes.
