Learning the alphabet has never been so much fun...and confusing! Educational toys literally drip from toy shelves around the world - choosing one which will actually help your child with learning their alphabet letterscan be quite a mission!
So what should you look for?
make sure that the audible sounds are not too loud as to cause hearing problems
make sure that alphabetletter sounds are pronounced phonetically
an 'ON/OFF' switch for quiet playtime and parent sanity! A good educational toy does not need to be constantly singing and buzzing at you.
look for a toy that uses all the senses: manipulative (using hands), audio (ears) and visual (eye) senses
quality toys don't have to be expensive. Look for heavily discounted toys on Amazon or pre-loved alphabet toys on ebay or garage sales - you may pick up the bargain of the year!
