What are cute, cuddly, educational and monstrous all at the same time?
We quickly discovered that not only are these adorable characters soft and fun to cuddle, they make awesome pillows! Yep, my boys decided they would make their new friends pillow buddies as well! They are that soft....believe me!
Each Alphabeast has a letter of the alphabet on them. This is a great way for little ones to learn their ABC's and become familiar with upper and lowercase letters as well. Of course, when you have a collection of Alphabeasts, spelling words becomes a whole new fun game!
There is a complete background story that comes with these plush characters which makes kids connect with them even more, and encourages little ones to use their imaginations as they create story lines and scenarios for their new friends:
" Alphaland is a far away place that’s full of wonderment. Each day the Alphabeasts rise and shine to a new day, and set out on an adventurous journey that leads them through different parts of their homeland. Each Alphabeast has a unique gift. Some are strong. Some are swimmers. Some can soar. Some are speedy. And each duty or problem that they encounter and need to solve calls for a different solution, so it’s very important that the Alphabeasts work together as a team not only with their special abilities, but also by coming together to spell words with their letters. Whenever they spell a word, the word comes true! "
The Alphabeasts collection includes a boxed set of sturdy alphabet board books which I can see being a wonderful present, along with a cute Alphabeast of course, for toddlers!
There are 26 Alphabeasts in all, each with a letter of the alphabet, and each with a unique personality and power all it's own. They are available on the website for $20 each.
As for my munchkin boys, they give their new pals two thumbs up!
